The supercharger shown on my car is a custom designed kit I develped and sold on my website: http://www.3LDuratec.com Unfortunately, Vortech stopped producing the V9 headunit so the kit is no longer for sale. :(
The car was dynoed and pegged the MAF at about 5700 rpms. I recently added a lightning MAF and will need to tune the new MAF and dyno the car again to see what the gains are. I'd expect to see another 20-30whp over the dyno below:
I recently created a bracket to hold the distribution box, coolant tank, and a oil catch can. I routed the intake down into the fender so I could install a larger K&N filter and ditch the mushroom filter. The Wings West upper fiberglass grill insert can be seen below as well (not the best angle). Here are some updated pictures:
