I have a chance to get a 3-71 (or 453 sized? he doesnt know) blower for $50. Is there any way I could get it onto a 1986 2.8?

Hmm, that would be interesting.

Maybe machine the top surface of the plenum so it is flat, then cut a hole and bolt it on (after drilling/tapping of course). Then remove the TB and bolt on a block-off plate.

Does the blower use a carb on top or what?

Thats it, not quite sure how it works as I have never worked with one before. I'm just getting a good deal and figure it could be used on my little 2.8 for a bit of power

Looks like it is not a complete unit, unless some parts are not pictured. I bet it could be done with some time, a little money, and a lot of good 'ol ingenuity. Oh, and a hole in the hood too :D

If it were me and the car was not a current daily driver, I'd give it a shot. Worst case, you lose a stock flat hood, a plenum, and maybe a garden variety 2.8

Good luck!

Well since you brought it up,

You know it would have been cool :D Just imaging the "what the heck? factor" when popping the hood, that alone would make it worthwhile 8)
