Default Welding and cutting on a stock GT500 blower

Just figured I would post a shot of a little project i have been working on. I welded a bunch of material onto key areas of the stock blower housing, and will have my porter Brian/Posi take out a bunch of material on the inside. However, before sending it to him, I decided to put it in the mill and give him a head start, man that aluminum cuts easy!

I have a TVS on my car, but am messing with the stock blower just to see what can be done. I want to be ready with a crazy ported stock blower when I go and do the durability testing on our upcoming quick-change nose drive. The drive will allow anything from a 2.2" to 3" pulley to be bolted right on. The nose drive is a complete replacement that is engineered for high speeds and will come with a full 1 year warranty. My car is an excellent candidate for durability testing because it has a 10% lower, with the 2.2" upper, I'll be able to run 23,000RPM or 3.5:1 drive ratio on the blower! Those little eaton rotors will be screaming but they should hang on :hysterical:

We'll also be using our big D-port elbow and 72mm throttle body, to get tons of air into the stock blower. The "big" elbow has a floor that is 3/16-1/4" lower than stock, which is material that simply does not exist on the stock elbow so even the best porters can not match what our elbow will flow.

lol when you're done with the blower let me know - this will be my only option as I cannot put a physically larger blower on my swapped 1997 cobra!
