Twin Supercharged Chevy 383... Finally some pics!

Well I finally did the first mock up. I have the carb adapters and intake manifold adapter mostly done so I figured I would bolt it on and snap some pics. I think its going to be pleasantly over the top

Looks like a standard 4 barrel aluminum manifold, can't be very efficient...I would think. Probably will make some decent HP, but no where near the potential.

Yeah, probably as inefficient as anyone else who blows through a standard intake manifold...... all the vortec superchargers and turbo that do the same thing.

I'm giggling. Thats pretty cool, whether it works or not. I wonder if you could find a way to modify a TPI intake with that setup?

I will take a few pics of the intake manifold adapter on Monday. I'm getting ready to go to the cost for the weekend

My plan was to see what could be done with junkyard superchargers and a limited budget. My budget kinda went out the window when I bought the 2 new Predator carbs and the 2 scoops. But realistically if you where careful you could put this together for $600-$800 if you rebuild the superchargers yourself.
