It still is, but not like the m90/62. The eatons are a 'roots' style and bolt directly to the lower intake manifold. A centrifugal */c is belt driven with a compressor housing, similar to a turbo but with a pulley instead of an exhaust housing. So it force feeds the engine before the throttle body.

Think of it as a belt-driven turbo instead of exhaust driven.

Basically amounts to a Turbo driven off the crank...even in appearance.

can a L67 be put in a Camaro/transam like '99

a complete swap but keep the manual tranny, is it possible? do the tranny will fit?

and what do you think a camaro will run on quarter mile with minimal mods

like :3.4 pulley , headers, 1.9 rocker... basic .


With the manual tranny and rear wheel drive it should be quick!
