Something different: dual centrifugal superchargers

i was thinking the other day...i want to build something different. how plausable do you think twin centrifugal superchargers would be, if i was to make mounting brackets. A dual carburator intake, two blown threw carbs and two superchargers. Sound possible?

now thats a hell of a question

thats sounds pretty bad ***

i know you can make just about anything fit w/a few modifications

but mechanical wise i don't know, it'll probably raise the air temp through the roof w/ all that psi but i'm not sure i'm not an expert. in fact i'm a beginner in the world of s/c too

but i do know you'd have to hav a low compression ratio

i'm definately gonna watch this thread develope

twin hairdryers

Other than for appearances sake, it seems to me it would be a waste of time and money, to run twin centrifical superchargers, when you can easily get by with one that would push the needed volumn of air. Running the twin superchargers would also greatly increase the perisitic load on your engine, so the gain would be less than running one large hairdryer.
I think the Mysterion ran dual Roots Superchargers of small displacement.

In that case go for it! Size the blowers as if the engine were two fours instead of an eight. For looks it will be a winner, like the eight turbo 57 Chevy, for performance it won't matter at best, and will consume a little more power to turn at worst. If sized right they shouldn't consume that much more power, maybe 10 hp over a single. The real interesting thing will be where you mount all the acessories! I've seen one or two rodders that wanted to move things off the engine mount an alternator on the rear axle pinion. That's real easy if using an IRS like a Jag. Down side is the battery isn't charging if the car isn't moving, but unless you sit and idle in traffic a lot it shouldn't be a problem with a good battery.

Twin turbos are often used because it takes just a little more time for a single big turbo to spin up than two smaller ones. That's not a problem with crank driven compressor.

Something new?
If this were 1957 it would be new.
That was done on a 57 t-bird in 1957 with 2 paxton superchargers.
Although it always looks killer!

Sorry,
I didn't see where you said new to me.
I thought you were thinking it was a new Idea.
Didn't mean to offend you.
As I said, I think it would be cool!!
