Classic Raised Supercharger Top?

This mod is the most over hyped one ever unless you are over 400hp it does nothing … same dyno same day I made 326 with a stock too and 324 with a raised top which proves this theory
 
Thank you for the information. I have done the 3" fresh air induction, the 5% overdrive pulley, the 73mm mass air meter and looking for the next small step. Bill at SCP recommended the raised super charger top but I wanted to get some feedback on his suggestion. I have been a little disappointed with the mufflers he suggested as they did not perform as I had hoped but my expectations may have been to high. The other suggestions were an intercooler fan and larger 75mm throttle body. Any opinions on these changes.
 
My plan is to do a magnaflow low restriction resonator, air silencer delete, high flow panel filter, 70-73 MAF. My car already has a pulley. I'm guessing its a 5%. After those mods I don't really want to change much more. I'm guessing it'll be a good 15-20HP increase? I was also kicking around the idea of doing a Silver Fox VB down the road. My AOD is a new unit and I hate the sluggish shifts lol

Suggest getting the Lentech street terminator VB instead of the Silver Fox.
 
I have question about the spoiler chin kit from magnumpowers that flow more air into the radiator.I have not seen one post or video about this spoiler actually working or being efficient, I have a lil bit off issues on cooling my car at idle since I installed a big front mount intercooler.I even had my radiator clean out just in case it was clogged out still same heating issues It takes forever to cool down I live in a very hot area,where it hits around 105 degrees where I live.Bill says it's very efficient or should I just go with a pusher fan that haves close to 3000 CFM flow from spal or flex-alite. Any one haves experience with this lower chin spoiler kit?
 
Do you have to run the ALT pulley? Don't want any potential charging issues. Car is has stock sound system and is low mileage (49k) charging system works as it should now.

Yes you can run a stock size alternator pulley, but that will require using a special length (shorter) accessory belt and will reduce the HP savings.
 
ok, thank you! So is a charging issue something I should be concerned about?

I ran my SC with the full set of UD pulleys for many years without seeing a problem. After seeing a voltage drop at wide open throttle I switched to a smaller pulley on the alternator. It didn’t really help and was probably caused by the battery. I’m currently using stock size accessory pulleys because the 10% OD crank pulley requires stock diameter water pump pulley.

I can't confirm for R code Thunderbirds & Cougars, but I think most Ford ECU's of that era shut off the alternator as well as the A/C compressor at W.O.T. That may be why you were seeing a voltage drop?

So here’s a question, what’s a better option? JS pulley alone or a set of UD pulleys?

I knew the AC is shut off at WOT, but that's the first I've heard of the alternator shutting off.
 
Original question, does anyone feel the raised supercharger top is a worthwhile purchase to add to just a strictly bolt on menu? Are there any more opinions?
