back to business

My original plans proved to sit up too high for any dream of ever getting the hood back on.

I got a hold of some ideas for the serpentine belt set-up from an old Fox Body mustang I just picked up recently. I took all the accessories including the power steering pump, the alternator, Idler pulley, the water pump pulley and crank pulley to match the S/C (6 groove set up).

I plan on mounting it like Mike but his plates are designed for the Thunderbird 3.8 supercharger. I'll be mounting them to the heads like he did.

reviving the ol thread

okay guys I'm resurrecting this thread because I finally found all the parts I need...from the junkyard haha So It's the two turbocoupe intercoolers and some piping from the 3.8 supercharged Thunderbird and the 2 m90's. I'm going to end up buying some more piping from my local metal supplier and off to the races I go!

Here's the general design of how I want it oriented

now does anyone know much about the Miller Spectrum 375? I'm looking to get the tools to get this project going and I think I'm going to need some decent cutting power. Anyone here own one and can comment on its quality?

okay, I just found out that the compression on this engine is too high for boost, but a pretty good engine although to boot!

cant wait to see how you work this. my neighbor has a Spectrum 375 that we are trying to get together on the price right now...I want it like no tomorrow but my pockets say I gotta wait or sell something else I probably need...

NewInteriors(Randy) mentioned in a thread I started on this machine, that he has one and loves it. If you have ever seen his work, you'll know it must be pretty decent. Ask him about the quality.

Thats good to hear, I called the guy who had one and it sold quickly but I have my eyes on that machine. It cuts the gauge of steel I most often work with. I think it woul be perfect in cutting plate steel to make brackets and intricate shapes.

This is awesome! I wanted to do something like this to a stock 350 just to do it. Plus its always fun fabricating something from scratch and making it work. Good luck and keep posting pictures.
