The supercharger build has started.

This is one of Mark's superchargers.

Wade, 308nut, has pulled the engine to make the SC fitment easier and good thing too as he discovered a starnge A/C braket, a bad patch to a header crack, and the foam insulation had disentergrated. Swiss cars had foam, he will replace this with the stainless panel that the rest of the 308s had. Also I'm buying the Nouvalari exhaust that was used on the fully restored 308 he recently sold, the owner wanted it off to sell seprately.


A reminder about the rest of the build:
New suspension bushings, powder coated arms, faster ratio rack, rebuilt shocks, Addco larger anti-roll bars, and Girodisk front brake kit.
Fix shift shaft oil leak.
New speakers.
Modern FI and ignition run off an Electromotive ECU.
Ferraripilot radiator.
Seats had new leather and now the console and doors do, plus new glass for clock.
Front air dam painted to fix chips, and Wade is going to make a custom front plate bracket that won't block air to the radiators.
Windows fixed and new speakers.
All hoses replaced, except for recent fuel hoses that were replaced by the good ones.

Looks like a fun build Todd. It'll be great to follow, so please keep the pics coming!

'99 550, Rosso Corsa / Nero, S/N:114654, Assy: 31836, Engine: 52084

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.

Wade scraped and pressure washed the frame rails and repainted with heavy chassis paint, not the original cosmoline coating but modern day good stuff.

These brakes should handle the Autobahn and 'Ring just fine.

Adapted? Does the 308 share a standard rack design or mounting that their kits also use?

Mock up fittings. Now using Superformance anti-roll bars because Addco sucks.
