Eric Jacobs Member #2 has that set up. He may chime in here or do a search on holley 174 or his member number. If you search on "Let's build it" you should get good results.

I have the 144 on my cobra, but on a dreaded chevy 350. (non FFR) You are going to run into hood clearence issues but if you are good with glass you can get it to fit nicely. Also you are going to really have to pay attention to your operating temps.

Holley makes carbs that are supercharger specific that have the power valve indexed to the supercharger vacuum and are balanced for supercharger use in fuel delivery.

Pro's
Easy to tune
good gas mileage
easy set idle

Con's
expensive,
sometimes hard to install
normally not a off the shelf item.

They come in a 600 and 830 cfm variaty, well they come bigger but I don;t think that you wil need one bigger then the 800.

Eric,

Is the carb height modified? Will a standard holley blower 750 w/ the 174 blower fit under the hood. I am worried about hood clearance. It looks like you have a red anodized spacer under the carb.

The red under the carb was simply a red billet mounting plate of the carb itself. To get it to fit you will need a carb without a choke tower and you will need to trim the fuel bowl vent tubes. The reason for this is to fit the K&N max drop base air cleaner with the Extreme top. Any other question feel free to e-mail me.
