Back in the early 90's there was a street registered torana drag car that had a 6/71 blower and had the bug catcher reverse mounted. It all fit quite neatly under the factory reverse cowl bonnet scoop.

Some very interesting reading here in relation to blowers and EFI. I think you'd be struggling to keep one of these under the bonnet and would be interested to see how you'd go about retaining the EGR.

Any poof can use an electric hair dryer, but it takes a real man to use one driven by hot exhaust gas.

Once you experience that wall of torgue for yourself Rosco I feel that you will be an advocate for the mechanical hair dryer.
