Sounds good now should sound even better with that blower stuffing it with boost!

Sounds great! I noticed no movement of the motor at all so I am assuming the plate I see up front is your front motor mount plate with another in the back of the block? Blower huh. I was wondering what all of the other parts where in front of the plate so a centripetal blower makes sense (I didn't see a belt or hear any belt noise from a cogged belt), so is it hooked up at this point?

Dave, the supercharger is mounted on the passenger side. i just dont have the belt on it. i still need to make the idler/tensioner pulleys.

if you look in the background, when i first bring the rpms up and hold it, there is stuff falling down against the wall from the noise Laughing . the first time i fired it i only ran it for about ten seconds because it made my ears hurt. i put my ear muffs on after that.

Weenie......I understand though - helped a buddy with a 555 in a Nova a few years back and it was thunderous. Clay

I know how gratifying that sensation is. First time I cranked up my 582 uncapped it started raining eight foot florescent light tubes as they fell out of the fixtures attached to the roof stingers in the all steel building. Had to replace five bulbs that vibrated out in the first few moments of timing and throttle adjustment. Still have a hard hat hanging on the wall to comenorate that moment.
