Yeah i know i read it all. Us V8 guys dont have much room to work with. I was looking today at it and its possable*....well more than possable*....I wonder if they make kits that dont come with the tubeing? I imagine what they use wont fit under our hoods.....

I think its possible for sure. Just might have to work around some things, as I know room is scarce, but there is still plenty of it. You plan on doing a intercooler too?

Of course its possible. They make a carburated universal "tuner" kit. It basically comes with the bracket to hold the head unit to the engine and the headunit itself and the crank pulley. You fab up the rest of the kit. Meaning you put together the fueling system and intake ducting and other misc. stuff.

The P1sc or D1SC will fit in there fine. I have inquired about them, and got the free literature on them from ATI. It includes diagrams detailing their measurements.

From all the ones Iv'e taken on my truck, it will fit no problem. BUT, they do require you to relocate your power steering pump. Essentially, lowering it down some. On my truck, as well as my other buddies V8 s-10 blazer, that would push the PS pump into the steering box.

From all the measurements I"ve taken, you wont' be able to run ps in the stock location with their carbed blower brackets. Thats with the stock v belt set up, since thats what the procharged kit was designed around.

Heres a truck with one.

I've talked with a guy from the s10 V8 forum, and he claims that the procharger kit for the TPI camaros will fit a V8 s10 with the tpi accessories. He has one on his camaro, and claims he didn't have to change any of the accessories, and it just mounts outward of the alt (on the left side of the truck, in front of the master cylinder.

But, I don't have any measurements for the camaro one. They dont include them with the TPI info, since it was made to fit specifically the camaro.

Just to give you some idea of how the ATI fits on a 350.



Granted that's in a Monte Carlo and not an S10, but I don't see why it wouldn't fit. That's a D1-SC by the way. :)

thats kinda what i was wondering on the PS. I have that lit. too. Do you know what water pump they are running? Im guessing a short. What about P/S? I was thinking running one w. a remote Res. to clear up some room. Glad i saw those pic. Does Procharger make one that the air outlet goes out to the driverside like most of them pics? that would make things easier. They sar they have "Reversed" but im not sure whats reversed. Also i was going to run a serp. on the charger and V's on the others. Thanks :)

If you're talking about rotating the discharge towards the motor, you simply remove the 7 bolts holding the housing on and reclock it like you would a turbocharger. The reverse rotation superchargers spin the opposite direction and must be mounted with the inlet towards the front of the vehicle instead of towards the rear like in the pictures. Mustangs and Corvettes mount the blowers in this fashion. :)
