i just went out to my shed but cant find that spare intake i have... do those bolt holes match up?

eh, for a minute there i thought that was a one piece unit.... one thing you could put on the list for "What would it take to mount this on an Eldorado?" is a saws-all to cut a hole in your hood.

That's a hell of a good price! I paid over 600 for my Vortech.

It would be nice if there was such a kit as an option for these motors, but there isn't.....sigh

Simple: Make a rig to hold the supercharger 4.5 feet off the floor. Remove the hood from a 2006+ RWD 4.4 Northstar powered Cadillac, run it under the supercharger, lower it and bolt it up. :stirpot:

the pulley would be inline with the passenger tire. not sure where the power steering pump would go. a belt driven centrifugal unit would be a better option. or a turbo. the fact that many manufacturers are making blown motors now is kinda interesting.

Well dang! I have a roots style eaton blower off my mustang (engine blew up, gonna swap a 32V 5.4 Lincoln Navigator engine into it. . .Haha!!) I'm not a big fan of blowers after that car (had the saleen setup on a 16v 4.6).
