Default Blown I 6

Snagged some pics from the NTBA where a guy is hooking an mini blower to a 250 Chevy. Looks like fun, and easy to get the motor and blower at swap meets/junk yard. Not sure what intake and belt adapters are needed, but a reg 4bbl intake should work.

Those 250s run nice anyway. Interesting idea.

Turns out it's Australian and costs a bundle!! Over 5K$ for the kit. It takes a long snout and a special brace to hook the mini blower up. I would seam if a guy fabbed up his own intake and moved the whole blower forward the problem could be avoided and you could use available small v8 parts. Just for thinking about on a dreary winter day. aussespeed I think.

Default front mount.

I remember a long time ago seeing a few dragsters with the blower mounted low in front of the engine, air piped back to a stock looking manifold

Potvin I think. Good idea if you've got room up front.

Cool engine. I have a pal that has a Dodge wayfarer roadster. Put a slant 6 in it with a very interesting cylinder head that he had shipped to him here in Oregon from Australia. :-) TLouisJ
