We had a customer who had purchased a supercharger kit that was fitted to a Ford 4.1 aluminum headed crossflow engine in a cortina. The engine used a 2 barrel manifold that had been modified to accept the supercharger.
As the carburetor was mounted a long way from the supercharger we suspect that pooling could have been a problem as the draw through system had the carburetor placed a fair distance from the supercharger.
There are many superchargers that have been designed with an internal bolt pattern that can be difficult to bolt on to manifolds where access to all 4 corners to bolt down the blower. The AS0068 is bolted to the internal holes in the base of the supercharger and has 4 external mounting lugs.
The AS0016 Aussiespeed Cross flow 4 barrel manifold has had the angled carb pad machined flat so it is at 90 degrees to the crankshaft and will also allow the mounting of the supercharger as low as possible. The AS0067 wedge adapter can be bolted or welded in position so the supercharger can be mounted to the intake manifold with the 4 external hold down bolts. We dont have the supercharger and the drive as the customer is in another state, we have done all the machining that is required and it will be a case of getting the alignment right then drilling the holes for the hold down bolts and adapter. We manufacture steel spacer rings to move pulleys for the crankshaft if the alignment needs adjusting.
The Aussiespeed AS0067 is cast as a wedge and can be machined to get your desired height and to get the blower at 90 degrees to the crank. it can be mounted with counter sunk bolts or welded to the manifold.
The 2 adapter plates sitting on the manifold. Additional grinding of the plenum to remove the internal lip may be required once the adapters have been positioned to match the drive length.
All supercharger manifolds should be fitted with a backfire valve to help prevent damage to your supercharger or intake manifold incase of a misfire. The AS0016 has been machined on the side of to keep the backfire valve in close as engine bay room on the cortina is a bit tight.
