Sorry guys been real busy with Xmas stuff.
UPDATE:
Well its not terrible news but not good news either. I have not focused on the m90 although I would like to there is just so many good parts for them already like the gen V swaps and turbo swaps.
This will be made for us on our lsj's due to I hardly even drive the gtp anymore having the redline.
For the bad, I no longer work at the place I was going to get this made at. I had a job opportunity to get alot more money at a much easier place to work at.
At the old place I was head of the second shift toolroom as well as the cnc operator of a 3 axis HAAS with a 4th axis rotory head attachment.(perfect for making my rotors). Then they sent me for a degree in Mastercam programming and toolpathing both 2d and 3d. We have no use for the 3d though its for making like molds and stuff then toolpathing the cnc to machine it. When I got back from my trip I was promised a considerable raise due to being more valuable to the company and being the only one who did and do that and only one who new how too do all that. All the other toolmakers were just machinests and dont even know how to run the cnc.
I got no raise or anything and did not make much money for what I was doing. I had a job offer to be a cnc operator, just a button pusher of a cnc router and a 5 axis for quite a few more bucks a hour.
Guys in my current financail state I could not turn it down so I do apologize.
Making these is my dream and this did not stop my just set me back on the project a bit.
I do not have programming software to use at the moment. Well I do but I cant post it to a cnc to make the rotors.
They will get made though just might take some time for me to find a shop to make them for me. I still can get into the place I worked at I left on good terms but will need someone to make them for me which will add to the cost im sure of, that I am not happy of becuase if I was making them myself then I could keep the cost down to make it a cheap but highly effective upgrade for those of you like me that cant afford a TVS.
My goal is to make the m62 run just about as much power as the TVS. With some trial and error with rotor designs and number of lobes I was hoping to possibly get better than the TVS too.
I want to get the blower housing measured up also for stock clearances to the rotor so I can make a few different ideas I have. I would like to make a interchangable one for the m62 thats the 180 helix as well as a twin screw 4 lobe rotor.
To GMRedline, I am curious also to what STEIGS lightweights do. I think it is a good theory and should help the parastatic loss but if thats only costing us like 5hp then that would be what we would gain from this.
I would like to see the results for sure if someone has these and did a before and after dyno.

I hope you get these done. I am not personally in the market for this as I already have a TVS but this would be nice to see.

As for it outperforming the TVS? That is something that will have to be proven. The TVS already has the 4 lobe hi-helix rotors and pushes 32% more airflow at the same time. I don't think it would outperform the TVS but by all means, prove me wrong.

I am not aware of any proof of gains with the Steigs hollow rotors.

I don't think my TVS would like that.
