No idea of an install, someone must have done this.

To the OP, it's pretty tough to shoe horn a blower under our cowls. There have been a couple of places (LMSpeed for one) that offer a magnuson 112 kit but many frown upon them for a few reasons. They are a little more costly than a procharger, they seem to max out around 500hp, and the neccesary modifications include a cowl notch and a dropped K-member.
IMO booth all of those reasons would be offset by the instant toque this design provides, especially when you consider that 500 is reportedly about the limit for the stock internals.
However, if you are planning to go forged or want the option of going forged later there's hope. Google Dragon Race Engineering, they're claimimng to have a kit that puts a 3.3l Whipple under a stock FBody hood and they indicate that it will support 1000hp. I'm waiting on an email response from them that will hopfully shed some light on what modifications will be needed to get it in there.
