Bob's 3.7L M90 Supercharged Build

Here is my current progress. Going to use the stock intake mani spacer to keep the torque curve low. Already have KTuner and Bisimoto is gonna take care of the actual tuning.

305hp on tap will be a HUGE improvement.

re: Bob's 3.7L M90 Supercharged Build

Do you have to fab anything to effect this swap? Engine mounts in the same places, etc?

re: Bob's 3.7L M90 Supercharged Build

Everything is in the same spot. The 09+ RL and TL SH-AWD engines are both based on the R70 casting. The water passage, pass side mount and ac compressor bracket need to be reused from the Ridge since the TL parts are slightly different. Its all just a matter of swapping parts out.

re: Bob's 3.7L M90 Supercharged Build

Huh. That's pretty ambitious considering your RL is a 2013. How many miles are on your original motor? Is there anything wrong with it or do you just want the extra hp?

re: Bob's 3.7L M90 Supercharged Build

I have about 42k miles on the truck and it runs flawlessly. I need power like dudes need chicks with big racks hahaha

I've modded every car I've ever had. When I'm done with the truck, it will drive just like new, but with more power. In the past I've had boosted cars, different engine swaps and have built plenty of Transmissions. I love Hondas and I will push the envelope with the Ridgeline at least in naturally aspirated form.

The small details are everything. After the swap my truck will be getting a much-needed full detail job.
