Time has come in my XW build to rebuild the motor (302w). The plan has always been just a full rebuild with all the basic aftermarket parts (carb,intake,cam,headers). I always had the intention on bolting on a weiand 174 supercharger in the future and I thought why not do it while the motor is pulled down. Have done a fair bit of research and going on what I have read a weiand 174 suits what I want it for, but just finding it hard to find info on what is the minimal or basic that has to be done to support the supercharger. Just got a few questions.
- Has anyone had a personal had this combo and how did it go?
- What in the minimal/basic I have to do to the motor to run the supercharger?
- What compression ratio will suit and how to achieve that ratio (head gaskets, pistons, etc)?
I'm not after a dyno killer or a 9sec street car, just something that has good low-mid range power and still very streetable.
Any help or advice is appreciate
