Well, im thinking that since my motor has the perfect compression for a supercharger, its going to get one. Nothing huge... probly 8 psi at the most. My question is, how hard is it to make the supercharger work with a carburator? Can i just buy one of those 5.0 kits and make my own induction tube thing?

I think it's a little more complicated then just the tubes. the only supercharger that i've seen for the carburated mustang is the paxton boxes and they sell pretty close to the price of the later mustang chargers. and I'm not sure of the name brand(think it's holley) make a roots type charger for the 289-302 fords

Hot Rod magazine put a novi 1200 (paxton) on a carbed sbf in their august issue I think. I'd choose teh cetrifugal blower like the novi over the roots type personally. Easier to hide under the hood.

Yeah, thats what i was looking for. That would be really awesome to have a blown motor completely under the hood ::.

Nothing is more fun than having a Blower.

Vortech also makes a carb enclosure.

If you swap to EFI your supercharger selection opens wide up.

I have quite a few supercharger links on my webpage. I have more I haven't updated yet.

Most superchargers won't give you any boost until 4000rpm. For a street driven vehicle, this isn't very effective.

In my opinion, the best type of supercharger for the street is a twin-screw blower like

NO WAY you'll get [email protected] out of a Paxton.

or an Eaton supercharger like this

Plus, they look COOL!!!

The other superchargers look like an alternator on steroids...

Any EFI supercharger should work with a carb you just have to get a carb box, make the intake tubing, and figure out how to align it and pulley it up with the front accessories.

I have a never-used Paxton SN92 ball type in my garage that I was considering putting on my '65 convert. Got it from a guy who bought it for a 351 so it doesn't have any brackets, pullys or the belt. I think the Novi is a gear type. Both rest under the hood in front of one of the cylinder hoods. I read the referred to article but the power seems sort of tame. On the other hand, too much power and you'd have to upgrade your transmission, drive shaft and rear end to handle it. I think the cost of a kit is around $3,000.00.
