Alright help me out. Looking at 2 used S/C's

I'm looking at a Centrifugal Supercharger and a Twin screw.

I need to know what to look out for when buying these used. So just let me know.

1. Overall condition.
2. Shaft end play.
3. Rotor clearance & condition.
4. Completeness of the system.
5. Parts availability, especially if it needs work or is incomplete.

I'll have to send you some of the pictures I have of both of them. The Eaton is a good deal for the S/C alone. It's hard to really look at one without seeing it in person.

Post the pics up and we'll take a look.
The hassles of fitting an Eaton to a 5.0 would make me choose the centrifugal blower.
IMO, the only roots or twin screw I would consider is the Kenne Bell Blowzilla.

Patience and saving is how I bought all of my parts, but it does take a HUGE amount of patience and a lot of saving.

Re: Alright help me out. Looking at 2 used S/C's

If i end up getting this ill sand it down because the guy before did a BAD job. The only problem would be the pulley height which would be hitting the hood, but ill just get another stock hood and cut it out. Which i think would look SICK if i could cut it around the S/C. Also the other S/C ower hasn't contacted me so im only looking at this one now.

Is that an Eaton M90?If so I wouldn't bother with it.
They build too much heat and they are pretty well maxed out at 6 psi on a 5.0.
Plus, look at that length of unsupported shaft.
It is going to cause problems sooner or later.
A supercharger stuck through the hood looks pretty cool, but when you start having the TB and intake tubing through there too it looks kind of crappy IMO.


What would you use for an intake manifold?

The guy i was talking to said to use a "trick flow lower intake" but didn't give me a model number. If it would be that big of an issue i trust your word and glad for you input my friend.

It would still require some sort of adapter.
I think you might end up with a cobbled up mess.
I would advise you to pass on this one.


Be patient and keep your eyes open, there is a good deal out there somewhere.

I actually found my Novi 2000 in KC MO for 1/2 price brand new in the box, so we'll keep our eyes open and see what we can come up with. Shipping is what I was concerned about, so if it doesn't worry you that will make it easier to find something.


That's kind of the same plan as I have. I want to see how far I can go HP wise and how long I can make the stock block last at elevated HP levels.

You still have info on that novi?

Is it clockwise or counterclockwise?

Yes, but it's put away in storage.
Not sure of direction it turns, the kit is made for 86-93 Mustangs though.
Part # is 1001810-P


Here is the manufacturer's page - Novi 2000 - but it does not give direction of rotation.

I'll have to look into it. I think all of the centrifugal S/C's with the 5.0's are the same directional pattern. I believe it's the length of the tubing.
