Hi,
I've done several custom blower installs. I recently came into possesion of a Lightning/Harley Eaton blower. Doing the basic measurements, it looks like this is going to be a peice of cake to install on my 98 5.0.The usual plenum/adapter on the lower intake.I still have to do all the math on the pulley size, I've done that before.
I've seen the Xcharger setup, I'm not impressed. I may be wrong, but it looks like a Eatom M90 from a Tbird up side down with its nose milled ? Are there any other fabricators out there who might have played with this idea? Or others who might be interested in this?
Please post reply

the only problem I saw when considering this on my 50 mustang was the distributer right in the way

Yes, that is an early system, But I remember a 85 5.0 T-birb I had. It had that P.O.S. throttle body system. I code scanned and changed just about every part on that system,My friend though it looked pretty funny seeing an entire intake manifold flying thru the air when I finally lost it!! I ended up putting a 4 barrel on it with a Duraspark. My gas milage doubled from about 11mpg to an easy 20, as well as my performance.HhMMM So thats the smell of burnt rubber!!

As for this blower build, I'll keep ontop of it. When I have info I'll post. I may even make plans .
