    i'm using the supercharger onthe back side of a (yes I know) a honda 1.6L in a 1970 Saab Sonett3. I'm fabbing up my own intake and using a combo of modified honda fuel injection, and mega squirter parts to build the frankenstein of a motor so it will work for what I need. I do have to agree though for the amount of effort and money you would spend putting one of these on a rear wheel drive car could be spent to buy and bolt on the proper kit

    well building some kind of project motor i totally different. with you thats the whole point, trying to figure out how to make it work, but i think its stupid to do in your normal car, or trying to gain performance

    I've seen it done a few times. you will get a power gain cheaper and easier than the supercharger swap but still doubt if it would be as strong as an LS1 imo
    4 barrel carb sits above the passenger side valve cover and the turbo skuck through it from underneath
