This is a Procharger F1R on a 502 with a Carburator


But you have to look at everything before pulling the trigger
How much compression do you have
How much Boost can you run
What centrifugal supercharger do you want
What Model head unit do you want
Are you going to run an Intercooler
What mounting and belt set up do you need
And of course do you have enough fuel system

I have a very powerful fully built 502 Solid Roller Motor with a big cam a 871 and (2) Modified Holley 750 HP Carb's. My fuel system set up is...

15 Gallon Foam Filled Aluminum Fuel Cell
Mallory 4150 High Pressure 140 GPH Electric Fuel Pump
Mallory 3140 Comp 140 Series Canister Fuel Filter
Aeromotive Fuel Pressure Regulator
Stainless Steel Braided Fuel Lines 8an & 6an
Aeromotive Digital FMU, Fuel Management Unit


Here's the link to Prochargers Chevy Catalog


Weiand also has a Small Compact 177 Twin Screw Supercharger for the Big Block Chevys they will fit under most Cowl Hoods
Example Here

ye that just the type of thing i want centrifugal. now i have the term that helps massively how do they compare to screw type powerwise. Ye i get i cant just add a charger i need to back it up with everything else just use to turbos. As for intercooler as no exhaust gas but ye all compressed air heats up how important is it on a supercharger

I dont have one on my Big *** Motor


But on a Centrifugal set up it is VERY IMPORTANT because you can run more boost and get MUCH BETTER results with an Air to Air Intercooler.

To answer your power question you can add up to 75% no problem with a Centrifugal SC. I added a full 60% on my old 99 Mustang GT with a little Procharger P1SC (which is the smallest head they make).

The pic I posted above is of a Camaro on the pro Charger site and the improvements were much better because they used a FR Head Unit

1970 502 Big Block Camaro
Description------ HP Gain----Intercooler
15 psi w/ F-1R -- 93% ----- 3 Core Race

Read up on their site, there's A LOT of info and examples of HP improvement

This is a little chart showing how important an intercooler is


If I fit an intercooler in a tight *** 99 Mustang GT believe me you can fit one in a 67 Impala no prob
