    Farmer John,

    Good to see you at the races when I met you.

    No particular reason, that day the wind was blowing and my garage faces that direction, was using it to hold down the towel on the table.

    When I was making the brackets, the thickness of that mallet seems to be the right height for blocking up the supercharger and taking measurements, it just happened to be there when the pictures were captured.

    What’s going big man! Last time I saw you was at Tom’s shop when he was making your boat.

    couple questions. is this another vortec or something else?? is it smaller than willis/johnd's?? also curious why it's mounted so low; will that affect inlet airflow??? from what i can recall, don't these things like being up in the breeze???

    They are using the cam shaft to drive the fuel pump and the blower belt has to clear the extension

    Its mounted behind the pass seat, if it goes to the track the seat will come out and it will be unobstructed.

    Love seeing all the blowthrough stuff coming out. There are a bunch of these being built across the country . I think we are going to see some interesting combinations come out in the near future.

    This is an all aluminum 540, reverse rot. F2, E85 deal I'm working on. I agree on the blow through deals. They have some serious potential. The centrifugal superchargers are super effecient.

    If God is your co-pilot, change seats!
