Looks good..... let's see more pics from the shows.

Looks like you did something special with the vent in front of the rear wheels. Can you post or email a pic of that area?

Lol the competition is getting fierce, at the last show I won over a 2010 Lambo only by 5 points. Show props are used only in tie breakers.

Jim and I hear this about 50 times a day at the shows we attend. I want to get a pin-hole camera and videotape a few hours of a show, i'd end up with a 5 min long "holy **** " montage.

good luck with this one. I hang with the GTO club here in Va Bch, we have a few guys with superchargers. They have been eyeballing my car and trying to figure out how to make one fit (with the least amount of cutting/welding). May be worth it to see about turning it around like we do with the intake and figureing out how to use the pulleys that are on the back side. Not sure if they turn the correct way, but maybe they make a set of compressor's that turn backward.

I'll we watching.

One of these. Or one of the models where the throttle body actually mounts on the rear, instead. Or a custom snout, and pulley cap, for the blower. If you want to pay the money to do it, it's not that hard to do.

It can be done, I would hate to have to junk the LS7 and go with an LS9...... But it's an option

Any tranny upgrades planned to handle the additional output? I know I get more questions on how my 6 speed handles the LS3 than anything else, but LS9 power levels will really test the capacity of the F40.

I have a lil something planed if my upgraded ( cryo treated) F40 grenades, but it needs to happen first to justify the make over. Plus I want to see just how much this F40 can handle so we can answer that question for those who have swaps and want to push it to the limit.

I think the hardest part is going to be talking Archie in to doing it

This is for illustration purposes only, it shows a pulley and intake setup. And no we will not try to run with that high of an PSI, most supercharged LS7s run at 5 - 8 PSI





And the R&D begins, PM sent with more info and other blower options.......This is my favorite part of builds.
Once we have a plan Im sure Archie will keep you guys posted
