    I'd love to have a 5.4 in my car. My only beef with the 4.6 is that its a step down in displacement, and still huge under the hood. Though, those new Aluminators are pretty sexy!

    See the blower through the hood does nothing for me on a fox... The modular motor through the hood is better, but still... does nothing.

    That red on black 4-eye is absolutely insane. Who cares about the 10 holes? You can't take your eyes off the BLOWER! Hahahaha. Absolutely evil.

    I say if the car came with a carb it has every right to have a big ass roots blower popping through the hood, but some of them are pretty much overkill. Putting a 6-71 on top of a 302 is pretty stupid considering the block will split before you ever see the potential of the blower. The small engine pic i posted earlier is the Wieand 174, and it's comparable to putting a typical centrifugal on a 302. I believe they're capable of like 12psi max.

    I know this is a dead thread but some of these look cool. The weiand 174 is tempting since I made the move to carb. Wonder how it would look on a vert. Would be different.

    I wouldn't do a traditional roots blower because they are inefficient compared to today's standards. I'm still waiting for someone to fabricate and/or offer a lower intake manifold that allows a modern twin-screw to sit on top of a pushrod engine. :nice:

    To me looking at these, all remind of some hick/redneck putting some junk together and couldn't fit it under the hood. I call it RICE FOR REDNECKS!!

    Nononono. "Rice" is anything that is both gaudy AND nonfunctional. Having an engine too large to fit under the hood may be a tad gaudy, but it is completely functional. That car you just posted would likely hand most of our asses to us on a plate. It is definitely functional, and therefore, badass.
