Was just sitting here, minding my own business when my phone buzzes, I look, got a text message. A local wants a ported supercharger and LIM by Saturday. When it rains it pours. Supercharger is done, working on the LIM now.

Mind taking pictures of that? I'm looking to port my SC and LIM soon and I'm not exactly sure where to start and what to do. Do you need to port the LIM in order to port the SC, or can you just get the SC done first? Is it something that you have to match up?

You don't need to port the LIM, the one I'm doing is for a intercooler. As for the outlets of the LIM, the target is .9" by 1.9" And nearly every LIM I've worked on has that size already. As for the supercharger, there should be more then one thread by me on that topic. I'm sure a search for ported supercharger should find a few.

Nice vette! My girlfriends dad (MGBONNIE92) has a 1969 Vette with a 427bb! He actually helped put that car together while he worked at GM.

Dan ruined it. Oh well. The surprise is still there for why it will be sitting in December though
