Eaton TVS superchargers...any word?

Has anyone heard anything more about these? I can't seem to find much info on the net about them yet. Specifically do they use the same bolt patterns as the M series? They are designed for better effeciency at higher pressure ratios then the traditional M series. So maybe a R660 or R900 would be equivalent to our M62...probably more along the R660 lines. But they would be better suited for 10-12 PSI.

EDIT: Added schematic drawing for MP62 for dimensions. I can't find one for the TVS superchargers yet.

I talked to Eaton a few months ago about the TVS s/c. The engineer that I spoke with said next spring for our size blower and that on small hp applications it was not as big of an issue as the very hi hp cars. FWIW

Different bolt pattern on the inlet and outlet. So you won't be able to use it with any of the existing MP62 kits or Lotus parts unless you make adapters.

When I talked to Magnuson a long time ago they said October for the 900 but I'm not surprised that it's slipping. Btw, I discussed having a bolt pattern that would be a direct replacement for the MP62. They said that they were pushing for Eaton do do that so it would be a replacement for all the existing MP62 applications out there but didn't think they would be successful. That was on the outlet side. On the inlet they said it was impossible to do because of the design of the TVS.
