Tech Question....

Does it matter if the inlet of the blower is at the top or at the rear of the twinscrew's case?

My understanding of how the compression in the case works is it moves it foreword and down so an inlet at the top would allow more air to be drawn in and coolet iat's. (right?) than if the inlet was at the rear of the case with a closed top.

Basically can this me machined to accept a Bird catcher style intake instead of a stupid TB/Elbow at the rear.


So it will work like the larger 305 and 502 blowers like this

I would think the actual screws would be a bit different on a rear inlet compared to a top inlet. Besides why buy the "wrong part" and hope that machining could "make it right" when you could just buy a top inlet from the start? Please dont say "because I can get a good deal the it"

Because i already own it and no one wants to buy it, the rear inlet only flows 1000cfm I could fabricate a new rear inlet if the top feed wont work. i want to be able to max out the blower and the rear inlet it a huge limitation.
