ummm... hate to be the bearer of bad news, but those head units with the curved outlets don't fit the 4.6 motor. i think the rotation is actually backwards too. find a picture of an old 5.0 with a centri blower, you'll see what i mean.

Makin a custom bracket friend owns a fab shop but good eyes it did come off a 5.0 but will work makin bracket and piping, i bought the charger kit for 150$....lol and it came with the 5.0 bracket and pipe.

alright man, if he can make it work then all the power to you. i'd like to see how you get it mounted once it's all done too.

The rotation of the impeller has to be counterclockwise, I don't care what custom bracket your gonna Fab, a clockwise rotation blower is NOT gonna work on a 4.6L Modular, so Make Sure the rotation is Counterclockwise, I'd be willing to bet it isn't with a curved discharge like that??

Ill have pics up in a few weeks, this guy is mr fab. He has a 76 volvo with a cobra jet 426 fully built in it and runs 10s all day.

Thats his volvo he hand built himself and its his shop....also that volvo has a/c powersteering and c ruise control still....lol

OK I wanna see him work his magic to make a clockwise 5.0L rotation head unit work on a Modular, it would be the first!

mell0 04-16-2010 11:15 AM

yeah actually, if he could sell that bracket, i bet he could make a ton of money. you can get 5.0 blowers for a ton cheaper than 4.6 blowers.

all the pita of fabbing, get a blower for your car

Brutal Metal 04-16-2010 04:25 PM

It's NOT gonna work!!

MeanChad1 04-16-2010 04:46 PM

If you got this to work I would be amazed. You should have just got a blower made for your car.

qualls22 04-17-2010 12:07 AM

Hey anything is possible lol. If you put your mind and money to it. HahA but good luck brother let us know how it goes :bigthumbsup

Brutal Metal 04-17-2010 01:57 AM

The clockwise rotation of the impeller is gonna be the biggest issue, I just don't see how it's gonna work?? And if there was a way I think some of the best engine builders in the US would have tried something like this which I've never heard of?
