    I have been biding on ones on E bay for about a year but I'm too cheap to get a new kit. Someday.

    hilarious looking motor. but yeah i think it could be done. just some welding. and a non-roots style supercharger. and advil. and budweiser. nevermind the advil.

    Maybe it's just me, but is that supercharger even hooked up????

    Good idea though. Setup like that might be good on a suckthru setup. Good with a single Weber for powah! Maybe a single DCOE piped off the side!

    mini cooper supercharged don't laugh too much,those things won a ton of road races,also the early hondas that looked like them,won a lot of ralleys right along side them.

    Anybody else notice the SU on the side? it looks like a blow through SU setup. it probably has the tubing disconnected. also notice the dual master cyl on a morris minor? it'sa competition car,they came with single bores,thats a dual master racing setup.

    Re: supercharged mini-A20 why not?

    it's a pull through my bad,since SU's respond like a FI system to airflow,the more air that can flow into the motor,the better. thats a really good setup for a supercharger. when the engine is under load and the charger pulls more air,the carb responds by adjusting the mixture. i wonder what brand supercharger that is.........lost thinks....blowthrough setup?

    Re: supercharged mini-A20 why not?

    I am new to the forums; my name is martino, and I am running an 89 accord dx with a weber38, webcam regrind, hi-flow cat, and pacesetter headers in Ca.

    That being said, its finally happening. The "list of supercharger steals" (AutoSpeed - Supercharger Steal - Part One) are now showing up on eBay from Japanese dismantlers at reasonable prices. I purchased an SC14 (off a toyota 1G-GZE) for $280 including shipping. It will be going on my a20 accord dx. It will be tricky.

    As mentioned above, it will be difficult to mount above the manifold b/c of the shock tower, but may work with a custom manifold & possibly moving the alternator. I also see a way to strengthen the shock tower & shave off enough material/ reroute the pspump lines for the belt drive.

    It would fit in leu of the a/c compressor, but unless you are running EFI, there will be too much lag & pooling of fuel with the intake running against gravity-- this is a no-go with a Carb setup. This has been done on an EFI civic already & is on youtube to prove it can be done, but a poor plan with a carburetor & switch engageable supercharger clutch.

    Well we do know that the alternator can be moved in lieu of the AC compressor and that a lot of material and junk can be shaved off the carbed manifold...
    Please, if you can, post things when you get started with the project, that would be interesting and somebody may have some ideas to help if you were open to that.

    Re: supercharged mini-A20 why not?

    I will put pictures up when my new galaxy phone comes in. The supercharger is scheduled for delivery tomorrow, but in the meantime, I had a genius idea:

    I plan to bolt the SC14 on the intake manifold with homemade plates/gaskets. I then plan to bolt my weber38 on top of the supercharger. What about the belt?
    Well, I can use a small pulley on the main belt (or ac pulley with a new belt) welded to a shaft in bearings mounted onto the intake manifold. with another pulley of the exact same size at the other end of the shaft to drive the supercharger on a separate belt. This should keep the right drive ratios if I'm thinking correctly.

    The only down side of this is that the weber/air filter will stick out the top of the hood ~4 or 5 inches. My car will not be a sleeper, but the draw through setup will be safe and have 0Lag.

    I also have a rebuilt Qjet 4bbl sitting around from my dad's olds 350rocket if the weber cannot be jetted high enough.

    I will run the electric clutch on the supercharger from a custom switch that follows the carb's second barrel if the weber is robust enough.
