Has any one done a write up of a blower installation
There have been a couple. The ones I saw were roots style. Those require a custom /replacement of the intake. I believe Shosource has thought about doing a turbo kit, but haven't seen that yet.
Haven't seen anyone do a pro-charger, which would have the advantage of keeping stock intake vs roots style.
Carter Fujibiashi ring a bell here?
Bright yellow engine?

I did a Procharger in Mike Barbari's car about 15 years ago and we ate an exhaust valve before we ever got it tuned.
I saw Mick's setup from Doug at FPS years back. I wouldn't mess with doing it.
What is the Pro charger running off of
I've always thought the pro-charger would take the place of the water resvoir, move the battery to the trunk and put the revoir where the battery was. Technically you could replace the resevoir with a side mount.
The one issue I haven't overcome, in my mind, is figuring out the injectors under a stock intake. I imagine one could grind a bit more room there, but haven't obtained a mach-up set yet.
Fuel injector clinic
Procharger went in place of degasser tank and ran directly off the serpentine belt.
Power pipe went in front of the appearance cover with MAF in the middle of the run. MAF was very tempermental as to clocking - i.e. sensor up, down, or on one side or the other.
Fuel was managed with old school 12:1 FMU - Fuel Management Unit. This is a pressure indexed device which raises the fuel pressure by restricting the return line by 12 psi for every 1 psi of boost.
With 100# of pressure at the fuel rail, 19# injectors work just fine.
I got pictures around here somewhere. Car sounded awesome. Probably the only V8 SHO in history that had a cold air intake on the PASSENGER'S side...
Edit - Got it !
Enjoy! - It HAPPENED.
Just got off the phone with fuel injector clinic and they said thet the injectors for the 07 to 12 gt500 will fit our engine
Are they the same size? I mean length wise. If so then that's what I will be on the lookout for.
Enjoying very much. That is about how I envisioned the setup. With the battery out you have a lot more room to play with.
Yes they are the same length
Doug Lewis has that car in his back yard if someone wants to go to Atlanta and measure my handy-work for brackets and what not. That Procharger, if it is still in there, is a PS-1 series and put out 16# boost with a 4" pulley if I recall. Probably less than 500 hours on that blower.
03-04 Cobra 39# injectors work nicely, too.
42# old school injectors are drop ins, also.
I got a set of Terminator Cobra injectors around here somewhere along with my M 112 Eaton off an '03 SVT Cobra.
Got a Lightning MAF too.
If I dig deep enough, I could probably turn up my red head 30# injectors which also fit our cars.
Make me a stupid high offer and maybe I could let it all go as a package....
What did you mount it to on the engine
The Eaton M90 on SHO R T S or the Procharger on Mike B's car?
Both were hand made brackets.
Procharger was a flat plate. I want to say 5?16" 2420 aluminum. It attached to the front engine cover. Pulley actually went through a large hole in the mounting plate.
Eaton M90 was a machined and welded aluminum structure which went over the top of the rear valve cover area. Tons of pix on V8SHO.com for this one but no dimensions recorded.
