Nice work! The fun begins! Ill be coating my SC brackets not sure what yet.. probably the same polished look as my hinges and match the SC but im also thinking a colour.

Question. Why the 90mm TB if ur SC output is only 76mm. I was on the understanding that it wont make any difference as your limited by the discharge size.

In all seriousness though it's not needed from a performance view on my setup. The reason is that my hogan intake has a 90mm hole. With the 75mm hole, it was actually causing a whistle at low rpms and idle, quite annoying. Took me a while to diagnose it, but it was the small gap left by having a 75mm plate on a 90mm hole. Exactly the same as making a bottle whistle by blowing on the cap.

That was the main reason. The other is that if I go back to NA or even a twin screw, this will actually have a performance benefit, so two bird one stone.

I put the heads on tonight just to check if I could get to the arp studs with a wrench, which i could......JUST!
Dry mounted a few other things to check clearances etc....one step forward two steps back. The supercharger hits the passenger valve cover, so I thought I'd get the hammer on it. Bad move. So I will just get it cut and shut properly, not that I have a choice now anyway Head Bash


Also looks like there won't be any space for a 180dg pipe from the SC inlet to the front for an airfilter. There is also not enough space to put a filter directly on the SC inlet. So I'm looking at some mesh screen options now. We will investigate it again once everything is properly mounted, but yeah....at least it will sound cool.

Maybe time to lose the shock towers to give you that extra room.

Mate, if I was to ever start a 65/66 again, first thing I'd do is get rid of the shock towers. Just opens up soooo many more options.
For now thought, I'll stick with what I have. Later down the track, if I was to ever replace the suspension, then I'll think about it.

Mine was tight but got a bend in. What about a donut? Got one here if you want to test.

I had a similar issue if im understanding correctly. What about over top of SC on the engine side? And lower thr engine a bit with your mounts?
We were just talking about this yesterday but oval exhaust pipe can help with slim/tight routing or something custom molded to utilise the space you have. Im sure youll make it work.. you have to!!! Hehe

I'll need to wait until I mount it properly. I can't lower the engine due to where the alternator sits. The brackets I have push the novi a bit more away from the motor than an earlier 302 kit. We will see once I mount it properly.

I found a much easier solution though

Not a big fan of those for a street car. It will sound good though Mr. Green

Yeah, I hear ya. But with the inlet facing backwards, I think the worst thing will be the hot air induction. Should be fine to not suck up anything too crazy.

So I'm going to bolt the heads down tomorrow, and I'm just going to run this past you learned folks to make sure I've covered everything.

-I've chased all the holes with an appropriate thread chaser
-Top studs go in with some arp lube
-Bottom studs with ultra black rtv
-All studs done up finger tight
-arp lube on the threads, washer faces and bolt face.
-Torque in the right sequence 20->40->60>80 ft lbs
-Sit back and watch water and oil leak out when i go to start it

Nah no mls gaskets. Using Felpro 9333pt1's which are meant to be pretty good with mild boost.

If I was going to use MLS gaskets I'd want to deck the surfaces to make sure they are flat, plus, I am still running hyper pistons, so I'd prefer for the gasket to blow before they do.

Hypereutectic pistons can handle boost fine. They don't like detonation though.
I'm using FelPro too, but mine are an "o-ring" type that have a better sealing ring around the cylinder area. Can't remember the model.

You shouldn't really need fancy boost gaskets when running low boost levels.
Meth will fix your hot intake temps, but it can't remove dirt.
