Ok, I am considering getting a suppercharger for my B2600i. Anyone have any suggestions? Anyone here done this before?

How much boost do you want to run? Centrifugal would be the easiest to install. I don't know about anyone else but I have never seen a kit for these trucks. You are pretty good at the custom stuff so that shouldn't be a big deal.

It's not a kit. It is an Eaton Supercharger. I don't like centrifugals. It should be doing between 6 - 15 lbs boost, unless I use a smaller pulley. My primary concern, is what else do I need? Do I have to modify my fuel system? And do I have to make any changes to ignition (new plugs with different heat range?, different timing, etc)? Anyone have any ideas? Anyone here added a supercharger or turbo before?

Well, got the supercharger today. I will have to look at mounting options, and figure out the plumbing, but it does look promiseing.

Just checked under my hood, and this supercharger is actually a bit large, and getting it to fit might be quite difficult. I need to actually try placeing it in several different orientations, but it looks like it will be tight.

What year is your truck, because im considering on getting one for my '92. But I think there will need to be extensive work on mine.

Mine is a '90. The 90 and 92 are probably nearly the same. The correct suppercharger is an M63 by Eaton. Of coarse there are others, but I'm not sure which size you will need.

Ok, guys, lets keep this discussion alive, but there is no way this thing is gonna fit. I need a slightly smaller unit. I could go with an M62 with a shorter shaft, and without the side mounted TB inlet. What other superchargers have been used?

Well, it was a used unit, but it is in very good condition. I paid $220 for it. Why, are you interested?
