Its a k-series motor, but it is it's own thing. Its not just a motor with a SC bolted on, far from it.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

Sure! Remove the supercharger, and the KJ heads & intake, and put on standard KLZE heads and intake, and KLZE cams, and you'll have a 2.3L KLZE engine which might make 140HP... but not on the milli ecu, unless it's the non-S ecu.

Now why you would do that? I have no idea.

Edit:
The Supercharger and the Millenia S intake only fit between Millenia S heads which have a different angle on the intake to allow for more room for the SC.
This is a LOT of work... it would be better to build a Frankenstein engine with a KLZE block, Millenia S rods, KLDE pistons and use the millenia S heads, intake and supercharger... the supercharger pulley & such would have to be figured out... I don't know how that's all done. But you definitely don't want to go Miller Cycle, throw in some KL31 cams and add those blow off valves. :-)

Would that twin screw work...cuz I know its a miller cycle but is the sc designed specifically for that engine or would it boost just fine like any other twin screw if mounted on a different engine.

That twin screw will boost an engine just fine... any engine... a 6.8L Engine... it has a very high volume per rotation. Especially for the size of the engine it is used on. It creates around 2 ATM of pressure which the engine presses against... Miller Cycles are... fun? Sure... we'll go with that.

Closing in on one year later... anyone try something KJZEM related?
Did anyone compare an M90 and the Miller Screw Supercharger?

At first I was going to saw than an M90 was pretty big, but after looking around I think I found otherwise. It's an IHI 1000cc supercharger is setup for 14psi but maxes out at 21psi . The M62 I believe loses efficiency after somewhere around 15psi. The M90 is a 1400cc while the M62 is an 1015cc. The IHI seems more efficient for it's size over an Eaton, probably because of the differences of the Lysholm-type vs Roots-type blowers.
