What would be needed to be able to mount this? I know I need the front cover with the belt drive on it and the manifold for the carbs, along with the carbs. Im looking to buy it as a present for my dad, and I dont want to ask him and spoil the surpise. Also, im not planning on buying everything else needed, just want to know so I can look around and see if its gonna cost an assload to complete it.

go turbo, when its all said and done its cheaper to push 6 pounds or turbo instead of supercharged......plus supercharged is engine driven......why make ur engine work harder to push more power than it should.

Not really answering my question, but I will reply anyways. This is going to be something like an 8second car with a massive motor, a huge tubo would be good but a massive blower would be equally as useful and for this application.

I'm not entirely sure of all the technical names, I learned and I helped put stuff together over the period of two years and this is what we came up with...

You'll need to choose the proper wheels for the belt drives, depending on how much drive you want on it, etc, etc, etc, etc...

You'll be looking at A LOT of money in all honesty...The cover on top of the pictured one above was $700 ALONE. But then again, it's special and was imported from Australia...ok...I'm done.

Hope that helps!

You need to probably have it serviced/rebuilt. And:

1) Depending on engine, an intake manifold that works with "roots" blowers OR have a custom sheet metal intake made to fit your target engine.

2) Cog pully system for the engines accessories. (Alternator, PS pump, etc.)

3) Depending on the mounts on top of the blower, 1 or 2 4bbl carburators or a carb plate.

4) If it's a newer car, you'll need a custom chip burned.

5) If the engine is stock, the internals probably won't handle boost well so you might need forged pistons,rods, etc.

That's all I can think of so far.

Weiand is one of the biggest manufacturers of Roots style blowers, they are owned by Holley now I believe.

OK, well everyone abandoned the thread :(

Want to clear a few things up right quick.

Were going FI with the car, a blower is preffered, partially because the application and partially because of personal prefrence.

The car is my dads project, hell be going at his own pace and he knows what he wants to do, Im not asking for advice.

We also know its not going to be cheap, im just looking to see if this would be a better deal to build/re-build then to buy a brand new one.



Im trying to host a few images up with the parts I need to know circled but Im having difficulties. Any help is appreciated.

On the main blower assembly on the left side, it has the gear for the belt, that whole assembly (what the blower in my FIRST pic doesnt have), where could I find one....

It looks like it needs more work than it's worth IMO, I think you can buy a Blower like that from Summitt for a relatively good price.

I just looked about $2,300.

I'd call Weiand up and ask em what you're looking at in a rebuild or in parts?

RandyJ
05-26-2005, 02:22 PM
Ehhh, calling is such as hassle and expensive for me right now :S

I emailed the guy, but havent got a response. Tis no big deal really, the motor wont be put in a car for another year or so. We still have to build that also :P Just wanted to take advantage of the buy if it was worth it.

I live in Sicily, that big *** island at the bottom of Italy. The Italy in EUROPE. Sorry if you know all of this but some people dont really know where Sicily is, and when I say Italy I get responses like, "oh, Italy Texas???"
