  1. Do you know if there is something existing to run a supercharger on a 53 chevy???

    I had saw an intake for it, but it was on ebay and i miss it!

    if you have any pictures...please post it

    thanks

    The intake you're talking about is no longer in production. It was made about 15 years ago, so I'm afraid you're stuck with looking for a used one.

    Me and a friend at the club were kicking around the idea of installing a Eaton supercharger off the supercharged V6s that ford uses. That blower has a rear exit on it and could be mounted on the side of the block with bracketry similiar to an air conditioning compressor. A carb mounting flange could easily be fabricated and a duct from the rear of the blower right into the existing intake manifold. Play with pulley sizes to alter your boost and you will make loads of torque on the cheap. These blowers can usually be had at salvage yards for around 200 bucks in nice usable shape. I would probably use the rochester dualjet carb,you know, the one that looks like the front half of a quadrajet or possibly a 390 cfm holley.:rolleyes:

    HEy, for what its worth, ive seen 2 supercharged 6's on ebay. The details said they were factory and came out of early fifties utilities trucks. (like these big old 54 chevy flatbeds you still see in hayfields down here) Unfortunately I havent actually been able to find one in these said trucks, or score one on egay.

    You used to be able to buy the manifolds fron either Patrick's Antique Cars and Trucks, or Clifford's. Mounted a 3-71 or 4-71 GMC style blower at an angle. Crazy looking set up. I'll go look through the archives. Then I'll let you know who it is for sure.

    I just ran across this. We make the supercharger manifold referred to above. Still in production, have had one on our 1934 Chevrolet for more years than I can remember. It is on our website at www.34-Chevy.com. I am a H.A.M.B. member..
