Centerfuge style supercharger installation

Post by Joe Yannone on Sat Mar 03, 2018 6:02 pm

In case anyone is wondering, you CAN fit a blower In without cutting the hood. I installed one on the passenger side of my Ford 302 Sebring and just did one on my 350 SBC. Just had to get creative with the mounting bracket. I am adding a FiTech Throttle Body fuel injection next to compensate for the blower. The " Power Adder" systems can handle up to 25 psi of boost. I am only running 5-6.

affraid

I'm afraid I wouldn't have the skill, the suspension or the brakes to handle that currently.

Aside from the supercharger. Your luggage rack setup kicks a**!

Yes they are, I had a lot of heat under the hood from the headers. They are AC Cobra vents from Factory Five ($79.95 per set). I didn’t want to have to re-paint so I made the flanges for them. I bolted aluminum angle brackets onto them, cut the fenders for them and them drilled through the flanges and tapped the brackets. I used 10/32 SS Button Head screws and they look great. I actually have an extra set of brackets I made, they are aluminum ( same as the vents). The ones I have on it are SS.

To Joe Yannone ...
I'm very curious about the pair of 'sun-shades' you've installed ... sourced from which company... how do they mount ... and do they stay upright in place at hwy. speeds ??

Hi Jimbo,
You can purchase them from MG Magic, the clips were designed to slip into the windscreen Chanel and clamp with a screw. I have done them on two different Sebrings. I cut half of the clip off , put them in position and then transfer the holes to the windscreen frame. Then drill & tap 10/32 holes into it. I do it this way because they can stay in place when I put the top up. I can attest to them holding up at 145 mph, my steering got light so I backed off on it.
