The T-birds is set up like this...

The supercharger is mounted on the motor, but the exhaust goes upward into a top, it then flows to, and through the heat exchanger (air to air intercooler) and is then forced into the motor via more ducting.

Its basically a bunch of 3.5" piping all over the engine bay...

Also, if you are gonna do this im very intrested! Personally i would choose an actual intercooler core placed between the supercharger and upper intake, rather than the other option which is a highly modified upper intake manifold that mimics some capabilities of an intercooler, although its probably much more cost effective.

I guess there aren't any pulleys smaller then 2.0 for the 92/3 guys yet huh

Making Manifolds is trickey.... I don't know if changing to a style like that would help with costs at all.

I would try and keep the price around 500-600 for the for sale to public ones although I probably wouldnt have much luck selling them to anyone thats not already a member or has at least used Bonneville club in one way or another. Im thinking 300-400 for Bonneclub members....of course I still have to find a machine shop willing to do this and find out how much they will be charging to mill a peice of aluminium to fit a water passage heat exchanger. Albiet if I can get a group of people to get them im sure he could get me a discount! I just dont see why this isnt possible....of course I havent measured everything out yet...so murphys law still hasnt kicked in yet...AND IT WILL as it always does!!! I may tear it apart and start looking at the measurements sometime this weekend if I get the chance.

I'm not so sure I'd even want smaller than a 2.2". At 2.0" the supercharger is spinning very close to 19,000rpm @ 5500rpm. They're only rated up to 14,000. Begs the question; How fast is too fast? (in rpms that is )

hmmmm...good point.....wonder if there is anything at all we could do to make them hang on better at higher RPM....I also wonder if the 94-95s may actually have an advantage with the teflon coating and all??...hmm maby for once the 94-95s have you 92-93 guys!!! but probably not :(

would better bearings be possible? Is there something in the nosedrive that would go? You have to be making ALOT of heat from friction at that temp.

I'm really not sure of any upgrades available to allow higher speeds with any level of confidence. I think its not so much the bearings but the fact that at those high speeds any tiny offset in weight will make it wobble itself to pieces. If thats the case the only option is to somehow do a high-speed balance, which I've never heard of for a supercharger....

Only one way to find out

I've had mine spinning at over 16000 rpm'* for almost 2 years now, with no problems, and my bearings and seals in the nosedrive as well as the rotor bearings are all stock 1993 pieces. I'll do a full rebuild when I put on the 2.0" pulley.
