Eaton Vs Inline 4
« on: October 05, 2012, 10:02:18 PM »
I've finally got my '75 Runabout home, so now I wanna see about hooking this supercharger and fixin it up [properly]

Early-mid 90's Eaton M-90 [I think] offa Fuel Injected GM V6
Snub nosed version

I've been doin some asking around, and everyone seems to think that a Paxton style would work best set up as follows:
-Air cleaner to the Eaton
-Eaton to a pressure box surrounding the carb
Basically hooking up the Eaton via a pressurized box surrounding the carb.
Anyone have some thoughts?
Bought my Pinto in '12, last tagged in '97. Had it on the road (thanks to a $20) spring '14. Tima to tear it apart, fix it correctly this time....and play with the drive train. Got a totally free & complete drive train-engine, 5 speed, drive shaft, and computer!

Get the right carb and a bonnet.
No "pressure box" needed,thats
the old way of doing it.

Blowthroughs work but it aint cheap
(ask me how I know).
