Re: superchanger for windsors
Mate, I would love an Eaton 4th gen. blower for mine! The Eatons are are (modified) roots style blower. The 4th gen. ones have a vacuum bypass setup integrated so that when your just idling or cruising around, the boost bypasses back to intake and you engine operates on vacuum just like it would without the blower (saving engine stress and fuel economy), but as soon as the right foot goes down a bit you have full boost instantly available, and being a roots style, it's available from right down low in the revs. This is prescisly what I would like with my car.
I haven't looked at it that seriously yet, but you can get pretty compact models in the Eaton blowers which I reckon would fit on my engine without any bonnet mods cause the 2 piece manifold (which would be replaced) is pretty tall as it is, but this is the one issue I would have to confirm - I'd like to be able to physically fit it under the standard bonnet. I don't see any other issues with fitting one though.
