Weiand 6-71 Supercharger Compressor price..

Just found a Weiand 6-71 supercharger compressor for what seems to be a good price..i'm not sure what the parts separated out of a supercharging kit are worth, but I found a compressor for around 200$.. it needs new bearings and seals, but just wanted to find out if this was worth it. Only have one pic of it. Thanks.

That may not be a Weiand. I have a Weiand on my T and it says Weiand cast in the side of it. It could be a stock 6-71?

Not enough angles in the picture but, it doesn't look like a Weiand to me. It actually looks like a stock GMC blower which, will do you no good on a car engine as it sits. By the time you have it converted and by the missing parts, there will be little to no savings. Not to mention if the rotors or case is bad, if that's the case it will just be a $200 door stop. You have to know what to look for and be careful. I would pass on it.

Real authentic Weiand kits that include all the parts you need to install a running supercharger are 'only' ~$2500. That may sound high but it really isn't when you figure you are getting a manifold, pulleys and belt, gasket set, and blower that has all new disposables and is under warranty. Piecing one together from cheap used stuff can't compete $-wise in the final analysis.

If it is a GM Blower then you can have it rebuilt and converted for a SBC for about 700.00 from "the Blower shop"

well, if I were to supercharge, then it would entail alot more modifications than just buying the supercharger kit. i'd have to get new pistons/heads/camshaft possibly to get the c/r down to usable. that plus body reinforcements so I don't twist my chassis in half (it's a subframe chassis) .. and that can get expensive too. I think i'll wait on it anyways.

Oh yeah, no doubt that it is expensive. If it wasn't you would see them everywhere. You could probably bolt on a 144 with 3-5 psi of boost and if your motor is in good shape it will handle it. But there are a lot of things that will need to be changed even for that so it probably is worth it to do it right the first time.
