    That's a great looking car, I'd love to do something like that. Choice of a blower comes down to personal preference, you?ll be able to get as much power as you want out of any type. Twin-screw superchargers (Kenne Bell and Whipple) are generally considered the top in superchargers. They have the lower outlet temperature of a CSC (Vortec) and the jump off the line of a roots blower (Eaton: Cobra, Lightning). Turbochargers can make crazy power and don?t have parasitic loss. New turbos don?t have horrible lag. I?d go with a twin-screw super, but a twin-turbo would be a close second. Anyway, I'm jealous!

    great looking car. I plan to repower my 57 tbird too. In my case I want to use a crated 302 with a 5 speed. Good luck with your project.
