im thinking of making a adapter to mount it inverted well right side up on my sc and make a intake like this to mount tb the reason for the scoop is it will stick out the hood so it may as well look cool. if I under drive it it should work what you think, I have all the stuff to make it a dyers 6/71 and the scoop , thing is it will stick 41/2 inches out the hood just 1/2 inch to high for street legality.

Why invert a 6-71?

invert well right side up lol I caught it before I posted it left it in to show im stupid, anyway it blows more air than we can use so I can under drive it get 8 lbs boost and hell of alot of flowplus use a bypass maybe less heat more flow?

Those beasts are terribly in-efficient. Takes a lot of power to make power with them. Do you think it would pay off? Certainly in the noise and looks department it would be cool. But I'm not sure of the value.

But hey, you got to do something with a 6-71 just laying around.

They may be inefficient, but they also move HUGE amounts of air. It will make lots of power.

Your top pulley is going to be bigger than your rims. Trade it for a 4-71

Can you explain what a 6/71 is for a stoopid noob, please? :)

I'm still waiting for all the other stuff you said you were going to do.

A 6-71 is a supercharger that was used (may still be used, don't know) on diesels. They are converted for use on gas engines and are the big ones that poke out of the hood. The 6 referred to the # of cylinders and the 71 was the cu in per cylinder. They displace around 500 cu in per revolution (the M90 displaces 90 cu in/rev) so you can see that it would be ridiculous to run a 6-71 on a 232 cid engine.

That's a lot of air... What ever happened to the inverted blower setup?

click on my links and see pics all are real exept the blower pics but in a week the two blowers will be done and ready for testing.

Awesome, I guess we can expect a nice sized write up on the subject of inverting our blowers? I hope, I hope, I hope...
