Sold the nitrous after going through a bottle in like half an hour. Too much hassle with refills.

Picked up an Eaton M122 off a GT500. It already has a 2.4" pulley on it, so combined with the 7.5" crank pulley, it'll be turning around 20k rpm at redline. I suspect it'll run around 17lbs on this little motor. I have a cathedral port lower intake from Magnuson on the way. Going to make an adapter plate for this blower and have an idler pulley mounted to the plate. I'm hoping to get 75% belt wrap on the pulley with the stock fbody accessory drive. Due to no intercooler, I'm going to spray a shitload of water/meth through the rotors.

Not much of a start, but hope to have everything mocked up on a friends motor within a month so everything is an afternoon bolt on. Total investment thus far between the blower, rails and lower intake is $780. Should be complete, even with injectors and pump for under $1500.

There isn't an easy way to package a turbo or centrifugal in this engine bay, and I sure as fuck wasnt gonna pay 5-7k for a full Magnuson kit for what the car's purpose is. It should be fun. My only slight concern is building a ton of boost instantly and bending rods down low. Ill probably just need to manage cylinder pressure there with stupid low timing.

Lower intake came today and ordered some aluminum for the adapter plate. Real nice piece. Way easier than fabbing something from scratch.





Also got some fresh canvas installed. Should have done that 4 years ago.

I mean, I'm basically done, right? Need to use some stubby injectors. I may need to space the blower up 1/2". We'll see after the intake bolt holes are drilled and I actually get some injectors mounted.

So the car was down for a few days due to a jammed up steering lock so I took the opportunity to mock up stuff. it almost clears the hood but I'm going to need some subframe spacer like used in an M60 swap. That'll get me the clearance I need.

The Magnuson lower intake is so deep the valley cover needed countersunk flat heads












Should have the blower "kit" ready to bolt on by next weekend.

Last pics mocked up on the motor. Just need to do some fueling stuff and it should be a 1-2 hour bolt on ordeal when I'm ready for final install. I'd rather run a Ford Racing cable throttle body mounted on the blower to clean things up, but fuck if I'm gonna spend $600-700 on a throttle body. The elephant trunk will suffice. I'll probably like it better with some black wrinkle powdercoat. Need to call Gates in the morning and see if they have a green stripe 6 rib 94" belt.
