    That is a home made deal. Indy intakes makes some very nice one's as well.

    It costs a lot of money to do it right the first time. But, it's usually cheaper in the long run.

    i did a search for it on yahoo and it seems like it must have been a common thing on a bbf for a while to keep the dizzy out of the way of the drive???

    Thats a V71 style blower too. See the bolts on the side of the case. Did a pretty nice job fabing that all together.

    That whole deal is homemade. Pretty cool. If someone on a cheap budget wants to do something like this Deans Blowers has the parts. http://www.deanblowers.com/products.html

    No kidding!!!! I almost did the same thing with a dart tunnel ram and cooler. I would have to stitch two belts together and lift my garage door up another foot. Plus I would not benefit from it.

    The biggest issue I can see with it is there is very little plenum under the blower. The problem with this is the blower pulses a little, although not as bad as a B&M or Weiand straight lobe deal, and the air flow from the blower isn't even front to rear. The plenum helps to smooth both issues out.
