Yeah I am pretty sure the cooler would fit fine, it'* just a w2a core like you guys run. We run into bonnet clearance issues if we have too thick a core as the snout is lifted where our bonnet slopes downwards. Our a2a design would need a fair bit of modification for you guys, and I don't think it would really be worth it.

I would love a six speed, how hard would the change over be?

I disagree. It makes it very easy to change the front 3 spark plugs!

Wait, why would you overdrive the HB? You'd be spinning all the accessories faster, not just the */C, and adding load. The usual method is to overdrive just the */C pulley, by making it smaller...

Only the supercharger drivebelt is overdriven. It doesn't run anything but the blower, all the accessories are on the inner drive:

It also allows me to run an 8-rib belt supercharger belt and is SFI approved.
