My CNC machinist has completed the first 3 sets of gearbox bearing plates and they are ready for assembly. Unfortunately the machinist couldn't clean up the casting error made by the foundry so I'm gonna discount the first three gearboxes. The foundry has poured the gear cover boxes and now they needs to be machined.
From the first image you can see the metal knot on the part, well this is from where the aluminum was poured and it sunk in a little. The foundry guy corrected the error on one of parts finally. Notice the o-ring groove on the perimeter of the bearing plates - guarantee no oil leak with this design!!
I'm estimating early September when the boxes will be available. I need to put the specs together for the Rbox. As for now the box is 4.5" (W) X 5.5" (H) X 7" (L) and weighs 15lb dry. Forward is 1:1 and Reverse 1:2 (kinda high for reverse but given the reverse gear selection and availability that's how it goes). Max output will 300 H.P on stock shaft splines (OEM Suzuki GSXR), but it can be configured for higher output (500 HP) using the high output shafts by Robinson industries (http://www.robinsonindustriesinc.com
). They make high output transmission parts for motorcycle drag racing. I will customize your order if you need higher output.
Finally, I'm trying to put together the website http://www.powergearperformance.com
so I can shift the product information over there as well. Also, I got initial specs on the supercharger, it will be based on the Mitsubishi 14B ( used in the Eagle Talon/ Eclipse) and BIG 16G (Lancer EVO) turbo-compressor wheel/Housing. Stay on the look out as this product continues to develop.
