ok most of the S/C SHO's I see have the supercharger on pass side and they run the intake tube over to the opposite side of the engine where the intake is. I was just toying with the idea of flipping the intake around this way the "plumming" would be much shorter and easier to run. obviously no intercooler with the flipped intake.

what would it take to flip the intake, or would the below link be easier?

there is one other setup I like

You would never be able to fab an intake as nice as the stock one, especially with the secondary designs. ans for an adapter ot flipp it around...no space. Much easier and cheaper to do it one of the pre-existing ways.

but you will need a spacer to lift it above the cam sprocket area.
HOLLY CRAP his post wasnt even that long. just kidding. mikey answered the question

thanks mikey

thanks for trying it for me thoe.

I was trying to think of potential gains of having it mounted this way and here is what I came up with.

very little plumming (simplicity) and maby a snappier throttle?
no long driveshaft for the sharger (less weight)
confusing people that have only seen one SHO engine (coolness)
