It would if you removed the rads and crash bar.

That particular pulley configuration will never happen. You will need to put on your mechanical engineering hat and situate it where the blower sits at the bottom of the car. Would be a fun project to get a procharger fit on a V, but who has the time and resources.

Better get a measuring tape out today, and go crawl around under the hood. They say one unit is "capable" over flowing 1250cfm.

Obviously this is a big block with a ton of hp derived directly from that aspect. Because it’s Steve Morris probably in the $35-50k range. Dollar to horsepower, is it worth it? Twin Turbo would probably be the most economical route. If 1800 hp is the goal…

Centrifugal blowers drive much different than Roots/Whipple positive-displacement pumps. Different from a turbo, too, even though the compressor design is the same thing. Down low, centrifugal blowers don't make much additional power, because they have to be designed so the compressor won't stall at max RPM and since boost is exponential this means they can't do much at the bottom of the RPM range. A Turbo, which is load dependent not engine RPM dependent, will make good boost at lower RPMs. And a Roots/Whipple is like a peristaltic pump, it moves the same volume of air per rotation regardless of rotation rate.

IMO don't do a centrifugal blower unless your only objective is WOT operation, or you will be disappointed.
