    Pootang,i didn't know that you had one....lol

    The only one that "fits" is a griggs,but not the one from our years. I use a modular one

    well everything needs a little modding...lol
    stb pic
    It looks like the first pic in this link.....which would be for a 96 or newer. I don't have any recent pics of it on my car,i'll try to get one tomorrow for ya. I had to add a few holes,but i use threaded rivets that are meant for metal work,instead of nuts and bolts.

    You can see in the link,how the front of the bar goes over where the blower sits.....it worked great.

    well i know the stock one will have to be modified if i want it to fit my kenny bell blower. i will have to cut the center brace and make some kinda under loop or over loop for it to fit. ill have it moded soon. this is a easy project. ill take pics later for all u who have the brace can do the same. thanks for the thoughts. gil

    Well,which blower do you have? Standard 1.5,blowzilla,flowzilla with bypass? If it fits mine,most likely it will fit yours,I have a lot more stuff going on,esp with the custom race bypass,and catch can....here's a pic so you can see what I mean.

    Thanks man. They're all that I've run for over 12 years,and I've tried them all.lol The car is an absolute monster,esp with the 18# race pulley. Third just spins on 275 street tires,i put a vid up a little while ago,....the thing is just useless now.lol

    Did you get a tune yet? which blower do you have,how much boost?


    here's that vid of what to come.lol

    fabbed it myself,couldn't see paying 400 bucks through HPH for it......do you have oil venting issue yet? You shouldn't with your boost levels....unless you just want a little extra blingbling ;D
