I don't know who John Milner is, but I simply cannot drive a car that doesn't have working AC. I would love a supercharger that worked with AC, but refuse to give up my AC. So, for now, for me, turbo it is.

John Milner had the fastest car in the valley.

I picked up John hitchhiking in Vidal Junction Ca on the way back from Zihuantanejo a couple of years ago,,,, dropped him at Needles .

He said he likes cars with flat glass.

Hey, give him a break. He's lived in Alaska, currently lives in Washington. Anything over 55 requires A/C to make him feel at home. John Milner is so '70s and drives a Ford. Reed is a child of the '80s...

OK, I looked it up. I haven't seen American Grafitti in years. Great music, great cars, so-so plot. I actually used to have the soundtrack in a double record set and listened to it a lot growing up. But yeah, I grew up in Alaska in the 80s so cruising wasn't really a thing and anything over 65 degrees and I start to melt. Plus, after living in Utah and getting heat stroke several times, I really don't like to play around with getting too hot.

quick question: I am new to the board and even newer to Carb engines and especially a Slant 6 - but does this kit includes "EVERYTHING" needed to install on a Slant 6? I see you would still need a Blow-Thru Carb but what about any Fuel related upgrades to support this HP increase needed?

Originally I was thinking like everyone else (maybe not on this board) to rip out the 6 and throw in an 8 but once I saw this S/C - I figured I could probably work with the /6 and this S/C. I figure use what I already got (clean it all up, new gaskets etc, maybe consider the FiTech EFI kit and the S/C) and should be cheaper

It does not have the blow thru carb or fuel system parts. If you like to roll your own and don't want cookie cutter, then keep the Slant. If you want to bolt stuff together and have it run right with minimal work/tuning, then get the V8. You will get way more attention at a car show or track with the Slant, but it will cost you some time and money.
