A standard side slung procharger kit will not perfectly fit on a stock stub. It would require some cutting. Procharger does offer a relocation bracket that would help fitment also. Which blower are you looking at? That can make some difference. I have been waiting for a stock stubed car to come into the shop so I can do some work on coming up with a good solution but nothing yet. Ofcourse a reverse rotation Procharger would fit but would require a relocated radiator.

vortech

I had a 67 Nova with stock front clip with a vortech supercharger kit off a 96 camaro lt1. It fit perfect!! Just had to fab the air intake. I would not a buy a procharger they are leaky pieces of junk. My buddy was a procharger dealer and 1 out of every 2 got replaced for leaky shaft seals.

I am gonna have to respectfly disagree with your statement. I myself am a Procharger dealer and have not seen one leaky piece of junk. Your statement may be true to an extint but I sense some bitterness in it and assume there's some amount of exagerating. They may of had some seal design issues years ago but not in the last 5 years I have been dealing with them.

Blowers like vortech and procharger, are just belt driven turbos in my mind. So, they essentially have the same driving characteristics, just different ways of spinning the turbine.

That being said, I hope you can stuff it all in there. Who doesn't love forced induction?

And Stangs4Sale, loving the Hamm's can. There are many empties strewn about my garage from nights working out there. Who doesn't dig the dancing bear...lol...

Does anyone know if the mounting bracket for the procharger actually comes from procharger or are they homemade on the stock front clip cars?
