Would this even work on the M62 for the lesser L67 guys?

Same size rotors i guess. They said all M'* share the size. We would just need to use one of those universal snouts and a spacer. We'd just need to figure out something with the alt.

Ours would need a VERY short snout to work. Remember, our belt path is quite a bit closer to the block than the Series II.

Now that I think about it, it would be pretty difficult to do on a Series I. I am not saying it can't be done, because it could be done, but it would be difficult. Converting the blower wouldn't be that tough, but the Series II has 2 belts so the blower snout sticks out a few more inches than the Series I, so you would have to do something about that, or get a custom crank pulley that supports two belts, and add in all the idlers and everything for it. Maybe you could use the M90 rotors in the M62 (I think they are probably different) and accomplish the same thing, but not have to make up as much space difference.

I think its definately something to look into anyways. Its a pretty ingenious idea IMO.

Oh yeah, you guys just have other things on your belt. I knew the belts were different somehow. So they are just closer to the block then? Thats odd...

How much closer are they to the block?

Our SC belt doesn't run around the motor mount. Both belts are literally side by side. The SC belt runs the water pump, and the Accessory belt runs everything else.

I think the only thing different may be that yours runs to the OUTSIDE, and ours runs to the INSIDE.

Wills right. We're on the inside belt.

I was doing the math another day in my head and i think it was somethign like a 2-4 inch snout.

My Series II belts doen't run around any motor mounts.
I think the difference must be in the water pump design.

Thats probably the difference then. (you being on the inside belt, instead of the outside like the Series II) So you would probably need to get a snout A LOT SHORTER, like 3" shorter than what the Series II needs. I think that will probably be pretty tough to do...unless maybe you could figure out a way to run the blower on the outside belt and not the inside belt. That is probably the only option, because I don't think you can get a snout much shorter than you already have. I don't know too horribly much about the series I, but does the outside belt routing allow you to run the belt on the supercharger easily, or would it take major belt routing changes?
