I had one on my FI 460. I'm sure you could adapt it easily with a carb box. It should bolt on the same, use most of the same hardware, just hook it to a box instead of throttlebody. It was a Vortech kit.

I sold it a couple years ago.....bummer because I would be retro-fit'n it to my FE right now

An supercharger such as paxton, vortec at al, can be made to work very well with a carbuerator just fine.

All you need to do is extend the hose from the supercharger to the carb, and weld together (or have welded) a bonnet that encases the carb. Paxton many years ago used to make such bonnets, but they don't anymore.

Essentially, its a box that has a matching carb pad inside, it bolts to the intake manifold, and your carb bolts to the inside of the box, on the bottom. Then you run your fuel lines through bulkhead fittings in the box as well as vaccum hoses, and you extend the throttle shaft out the side of the box, putting it through a tight grommet. Use stronger springs to make up for the grommet's binding, or grease it good, and make a gasket and a cover that goes on top.

Its a box, nothing more.

I think paxton still offers the box. At least it is STILL on display at Summit Racing. I would bet they still have a couple. I could see it being a dying part due to the fact not many people deal with carbs anymore.
