here's a thought, just curious if anybody had attempted it

i've got a buddy who asked me if i wanted to buy a lightning supercharger he had for my mark vIII motor. i know i would have to fab a lower manifold to mate to the heads but here's my question. has anybody attempted to put the air inlet/throttle boddy directly on top with an aluminum blower scoop? it seems like it would be a fairly straightforward design the worse part being figuring out how to mount an air filter. but for that i was thanking making the inlet a two piece that splits horizontly and have a small square k&n filter mount vertically inside of it with a lip on each side to hold it in place. then for clearance purpose cut that wonderfully supercharge hole in my hood and let it poke out i'm just curious if anybody attempted this yet and remember just cause nobody has doesn't mean its not possible thanks, Dave

I've noticed that a lot of your answers to questions like this always start with "no". Though frequently I agree with your answers, do you ever just stop and think....hhmmmmm I wonder if it might be possible?

If the engine were speed density you could get away with that but remember you need a MAF somewhere in front of that blower

that's what i was curious about. most likely i would have to make the inlet so could i have a bung on it so i move the guts from a maf into it? since most of the maf is just a housing?

If you are at all serious check out his place

http://www.mass-floefi.com/

They make an MAF efi system that looks like a carb but uses the stock Ford EEC. Now I know you don't need the complete system but you might be able to utilyze the MAF since they place it on top of the TB inside the aircleaner so it looks old school. I'm sure the MAF curve is not identicle to a Ford unit but it must be pretty close to use an unaltered EEC
