Approximate cost?


$2800

I know someone who has one in his possession. It is yet to be seen if the unit ever makes it onto a running car. From what I have seen (Just a quick look) it looked really decent.

Holy moly!

I was originally thinking NA then going to turbo a bit later, but now I may need to reconsider some NA static/compression ratios and consider a bolt-on supercharger.

Would this unit still work with A/C? I imagine the blower pulley would be going where the stock compressor would go... that may be my only limiting factor. Relocating the A/C compressor and alternator may be an option, though.

I've seen some interesting dyno videos of a supercharged Aussiespeed car, which made very little power (still substantially more than stock), but made over 400 lb/ft of torque at the wheels. It was likely a limitation of the head or the bottom-end build that kept the motor from spinning fast enough to make some significant top-end horsepower, but wondering if this is going to be a similar design.

Either way, I'll be watching! :)

Rick,

Maybe my Project V can be a test mule for that kit you have laid eyes on??? In any case, I am thinking this might be a nice upgrade for that motor/car...

Ryan has one that he is going to put on his Dart once the restoration is complete. Probably mid year 2018 I would guess. Ryan has not posted about his Dart, but I have put eyes on it a couple times. It should be a sweet ride. 72 swinger Drag / Road race car. Front coil over/rack & pinion steering, rear 4 link, mini tubbed, and all the body stiffening you can think of. Power train will be a fuel injected Slant 6, blower motor, backed up by a Passon 5 speed with new 4.56 rear gear and huge tires. Body work is nearly done and it should be ready for paint sometime soon I would guess.

Wow, cool! I better hurry up and spruce up the turbo car. I have many of those things on my list for this winter... I am still thinking about the TorqStorm and looking into that for the V.

Lou, how much hp would 9 psi support?

Hi Dennis,

Based my turbo car testing, I'd say somewhere around 275-350 RWHP with the right overall combo and buildup. I am not sure how cam and things like that will affect things differently, but my car has made around 275 RWHP on 9 psi. That is with an old shortblock (170k miles), 8.6:1 SCR, Jeffrey head, MP 244 cam, and pretty conservative (pump gas and street friendly) timing and mixture settings.

My wheels are turning as well...

That might just be enough to put a 2700# Valiant into Super Pro without breaking anything.... :shock:

Thinking of buying one of these and slapping it on a stock supersix, then drive it until she blows up. Would it work on a stock slant with 2bbl carb? and add what, like 40hp?

The holy $#!+ factor when popping the hood would be worth the $$$...

I suppose you'd need a 4 bbl intake manifold and a blow-thru carb...

After conversion to Canadian $$$, it would be cheaper to convert to a V8 using a donor car. And a crate motor. Hmm...

$2800 and no AC provision means I am not interested in one of these. A turbo lets you keep all stock accessories.

I hear ya, it's freaking hot this Summer. A supercharger is definitely on my wish list though, along with a million other things...

AC is not for hot rods. John Milner would never had allowed it.
