SuperCharged 5hp Briggs&Stratton
Here is a SuperCharged engine built from a 5hp (model13...) Briggs and
It uses a Modified turboCharger from a
Chrysler 2.2 , built by Garrett. I have to that my friend Clarence for
machining the Supercharger bearing
housing etc., as he does awesome work! He has helped out with some of my
other engines also :)) The blower spins at 6 times crankshaft speed.
We have not run this engine in this configuration, but did run it with the
carb. on the compressor inlet, it was a bit of a pain to start that way, so
my son decideto run a pressurized carb. Hopefully it runs OK. One thing is
for sure, it isn't going to be quiet!

http://www.MyRideisMe.com builds a six cylinder Ford engine, step by step.
With guidance from my pops, a retired Ford mechanic, he shows me how, then
I give it my best shot, not always successful the first time, I hope
everyone interested in building their own engine can learn a little
Project 460 Fox Mustang Part 2
Porting and polishing the cylinder heads, assembling and firing up the 460.
This engine was built for Project 460 Fox Mustang when the plan was for a
street/strip car. After finding a super deal on a lot of go fast(er) parts,
the plans have changed. This engine will be sold and a new, more powerful
motor will be built for mainly drag racing. To see the engine run, skip
ahead to 5:50. Thanks for watching!
Specs on this engine are...
1978 460 Ford Engine Std. bore
New Speed Pro flat top pistons
new rings and bearings
new high volume oil pump and pickup
new Fox Mustang oil pan
New Edelbrock Performer RPM intake manifold
New HEI distributor
New Summit hydraulic cam .503 lift 280 duration
D3VE cylinder heads ported and polished
Holley 780 cfm vac secondary carb
Supercharged home made Straight Eight by Desperate Dan Vid 2
Built in a shed, it fired up first go. I was hoping it would sound real
lumpy like a drag engine, but it runs too smooth, and it's too quiet even
with unsilenced 9" pipes! The timing was a pain to sort out the Rover
distributor runs backwards, I had to take the heads off to work out the
firing order!!! See the shed it was built in on Vid 1.
Added May 2012: OK, my nails are dirty, maybe because I'm an engineer &
build stuff? Maybe your nails are clean because you can't build eff-all &
just sit behind your computer? C'mon folk, get a life.
