    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.

    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.
