Supercharger Under the Hood????!!!

How much clearance to you need? How high above the fenders does it go?

Maybe you could go with a pro charger or some centrifugal supercharger that would fit under the hood no problem

Just a idea

project john has a good idea, have you looked at eaton superchargers. (eatons are the ones that toyota and ford are using on several of their vehicles,) Eatons are neat in that the inlet is at the rear of the blower so you don't have to put a carb on top. Here is a website I found, I'm sure there are more.
http://www.capa.com.au/eaton.htm
I know these guys are in australia but they have pictures.

I think one of those eatons with a side draft weber on each side would look wild. pierce manifolds could make up a manifold for it. It might even have a chance of working. now that would sit under a stock hood.

hope this helps, mikey

I would come to guess a 3'' cowl hood would work fine to cover a blower.
All depends on how much room you need..

I agree the centrifugal supercharger would probably be what you are wanting.

Don''t forget that a W is an inch taller than a 302.

Given a choice I would use SFI and a belt centrifugal, or if you want that gut busting torque do SFI and a KenneBell screw blower.

Doesn't Magnacharger already make a kit with an Eaton blower for this engine that would fit under your hood? I am pretty sure they do.

You will be much happier with that type of supercharger compared to one of the centrifugal types or even the Holley you are considering. It is hard for me to make that statement considering the Holley design (with the offset input shaft to clear the distributor) was my original idea when I was with B&M....and we originally developed what is now the Holley blower.

Hmmm....I just looked at the Magnacharger web site and it doesn't look like they make a system for your engine. I am surprised that they would make a flathead Ford kit and not one for the standard small block Ford 302 or 351. There are a whole lot more of those out there in hot rods than flathead Fords.
