garyroushkolb Double stacked blowers kinda go with the "bubble top" crowd! You can take-it from there.

1971BB427 I can see all sorts of issues with double blowers stacked. Beyond the fact it would be insanely tall, there's belts to drive both and heat from one blower being introduced into the 2nd blower and building up even higher temps.
I'd also be concerned with head gaskets holding the amount of compression such a system can build, unless you under drive it so far that it is just for looks.
Sorry, but it just sounds a bit nutty.

GT23T Definitely doesn't look right

1932bantam If I was even considering double blown it would be a side by side (which i wouldn't consider).I damn sure wouldn't want them stacked for 1 stupid looking. 2 you would be running the bottom blower waiting on fuel from the top. 1 blower beats the air fuel charge enough via heat, much less sending it thru a second blower running dry(more heat). I'm sure you could ( I mean someone could) plumb in fuel on the bottom blower somehow, I think it would be a nitemare . but again I think this was a pipedream anyway

garyroushkolb Have you checked the prices in blower EFIs? Unless your budget is unlimited it would maybe better to start with carbs. I'm a dealer for a couple on the manufactures of EFIs and the price is not for sissies. As far as double blowers why not consider a "loose" and under-driven 14-71 for your motor.
The Hoosier tires will be an "adventure" if you get the horsepower that I think you'll have. By car gets them loose in 3rd before you get to the secondaries. I believe that you can put a blower on anything if you have the right builder working with you.

Just an "off the cuff" remark, Geeez.

Oh, God. What have I opened myself up for.

"Forget I said anything", too funny.

R4MM ok found one place that makes a custom blowers for everything automotive, now it's the only place ive found where for a viper engine "blower" doesnt consist of ram air filter looking ma jingo, instead they actually build a blower (in my eyes stackable) and a hat to go on top, with my cherry bomb extreme, and glass packs either truck stacks from 78/79 lil red express, or zoomies like mad max, or straight zoomies like well hot rods do, ide have 505+ cubic inch dual blown, death on wheels,

any of y'all want in here is the sweet sweet kentucky fried mouse.

R4MM ah cobalt you amuse my face" where you hail from" not sure what that means but amusing it is, renderings photos, not yet, still getting things together so im not throwing money at the wall, also a cleveland engine is now a new option, found a excellent condition on on a rear collision it's right off but front is un touched thus engine is in excellent working order, 392 is a decent engine ive heard it run clean engine, the viper was on a hoist, im still looking in to weather the viper engine can be blown as it is a unique engine layout, if it can be ill dual blow it, if not 392 is another catchy fella, just got some hoosier 33x21.5rl5lt 107 h radius tyres for the rear, this morning, 375 has been bought, by someone else as his kid joy rode his car and blew it. so tht is slimmed down my pickings, making my decisions 1 less engine easier. like all of your feed backs too, making things the slide smooth like fruit.

cobalt327 If you have the option of a 392, that would be a great choice. There's not a more iconic engine for a roots-type blower out there and if you can pull off a workable double blower, that will make it unique- especially where you hail from.

AutoGear If you run the V10...its gotta have hilborn stacks and efi. God that would look amazing.

Regarding the dbl blower; I like the hllborn scoops with a screen for visual appeal.

Turbo into blower would be pretty killer, but you might not be able to see over it; although Dobbertin managed it with his J2000

Beautiful ideas so far. Any renderings or photos?

R4MM carb is an option but im big in my efi's , was thinking a scott efi, but doesnt quite rake my leaves.
