ok i've seen intake manifolds at blowerdrive place online.. but $2500 is pretty hefty... is there any other cheaper manifold... ?.. thought about when i go to welder school,, when im done.. make my own manifold.. motor is ly6 ..l92 heads.. any thoughts..cheaper intake..?. not billit..
If that means you're considering building them, consider one that mounts a 177. It's smaller and cheaper than the big blowers, it moves enough air to supply a 6.0, and it comes with a ribbed pulley.
Another consideration would be a manifold that mounts the 177 pulley with the truck spacing. Chances are that these would be used with carbs, so strictly a non-emmisions application. The supply of LS1-3 for aftermarket installs is only a fraction of available LQ truck motors. Oh yeah, and the LQ4 motors have a better compression ration for supercharging.
Well if you consider it's not intercooled...
And I had a marine 454 with a 177, probably one of the most affordable and reliable marine motors made.
I'm guessing a 5psi 177 on top of a non-intercooled truck 6.0 would easily be a mid range torque monster with an easy 500hp capacity at about half the cost of other options.

man. thats killer!
u got any more pics or info? what lower manifold/ic?
i see u have cogged pulley. i have an idea for cogged lower drive pulley for blower pulley and run acc. of 6rib serpentine.
No more pics. This is a BDS 8-71 that I had on a first gen SBC. It has the 3" 1/2 pitch belt. I will be changing over to the 8mm drive since it can handle more power and there are more combo's available than the older 1/2 pitch. I have been working on the crank hub/drive, I'll PM you about what you might have for a drive idea.
