I'd think magnacharger would be best top mounted option for an ls1...

I don't think Weiand makes a lower intake to bolt that blower on an LS1. Also, if that's going on a F-body it would take some serious firewall modification for it to fit. What carb you plan on running on the top of it?

fab up a plate that goes on the bottom side so you can have the blower mounted to the side of the engine. like where the ac is or something. the have fresh air coming in and boosted air coming out. run the piping like a centrivical supercharger. but that would be a lot of fabricating. you would have to make a mounting bracket for the blower. just an idea.

This is a cool idea for it. I've seen whipples mounted this way. It would be worth the trouble too because you would then have a way to intercool the system as well.
