I like!! Tight is good as long as it works. I'll have to look ito the bracketry you're using. Had to cut up and refab my last round.

Hey if you can cram twin intercooled turbos and all the plumbing and close the stock hood,... in the same engine bay, then a little old procharger should be a walk in the park.


My last (V6) was really snug, I redesigned brackets.

but with the V8 I would have to mount in front of valve cover.

He's got acres of room in front of the motor compared to my Nova. I'll try to take some pics of it like big_G did. Clay

Clay, I'd like to se them.
I'd really like to find physical dimensions of the head units and most outboard crank pully for gen I sbc, then design brackets from there.
Some Zs have used centrifugals, but their engine mounting is usually further forward. In my case I'll need to mount in front instead of over the valve cover, since I'd have contact with strut tower. I've seen some really low placement on newer platforms.
Remote turbo is another option. Since both have low boost at lower rpms, better for limited traction, stiff, lightweight, pumpgas street driven car. I want boost up the rpm ladder, not off the line. Looking for about 8 psi intercooled.

Is the twin turbo car one of yours ? That thing must be awesome. That is my dream set up. Twins in a first gen camaro with a 427 small block that idles dead stock, has power steering and air cond, and makes 700 RWHP on pump gas. Your Z car was already fast with the V-8. I can only imagine with the super charged V-8. YIKES should be fun.

Heck no. I'm just a dirt poor hotrodder Laughing But I always follow the threads with turbos.
The TT is a sweet project the builder is just getting it tuned, 415 SBC. His goals are similar to yours for whp, and more with the option of alcohol.

I like the V-8 in a "Z" car. I saw one at a car show and was amazed at how much room there is. Here are some pics of the tight areas of mine. It's tight everywhere - valve cover, control arm, water neck, alternator, crank pulley, etc. Problem on a Nova is there isn't any room in front of the radiator and once you move the radiator back for an intercooler, it gets really tight on the front of the motor.

Holy smokes Clay, looks like a knuckle buster.
You're using the long waterpump, right?
Also which head unit is that?
I have acres of room between radiator and engine, plenty in front of radiator for intercooler.
My last fit issue was hitting the strut tower. I'm sure there's a mount that places in front of the engine. I'd rather not reinvent the wheel if possible, but plenty of time to plan.
My above pic was much easier with photoshop Razz
Someday I'm going to write up a post pimping the virtues of old Zs as drag cars.
Not many donor cars where you can place either a big or small block, run the stock IRS R200 rear and run single digits all season long.

Photoshop!!! That's not fair Very Happy - smart though. I have the F1 head unit. Long water pump also. It's the same physical size as a P1SC or D1SC. It has a higher step up ratio, different impeller and a little larger inlet. Also the same scroll size as a P600 series which I have had on the car before. When you step up to the F1R which is the next series up, the scroll gets approximetely 3/4" larger. If possible you could look into running a reverse rotation head unit. This would let you run the inlet / gearbox / scroll facing forward and put the head unit as low as you want since you have a lot of room in front of the motor. Clay
