Yeh. And he didn't fine me for anything as I didn't go speed dangerous. He was a good bloke and I wasn't a young hoon.

He said he went for it and was shocked at the gap I pulled.

Never taking that risk again though.

Bump, does anyone have any idea if this would work?
Anything can be made to work if you throw enough money at it. The plate is unfinished as mentioned on the page, so it still needs holes drilled and threads tapped.
It would take some fabricating, but could be done. You would have to speak with a fab shop to see if they are interested to mill and Tig weld.
Due to the stock Buick V6 manifold design, i think it would end up sitting a lot higher than L67 and would require a sizeable bonnet bulge.

See the L67 manifold design

L27 manifold has long runners, you could only machine off some of the top plenum, weld the plate and have the blower sit on top of that. My guesstimate is the blower top would be around 50 to 75mm through the bonnet.

And some more thoughts are it would have to position the blower pulley inline withe the current pulleys and may also need an extra or 2 idler pulleys to keep the belt in place.

Oh, and the alternator might have to be moved as well.

Sounds like an expensive exercise and will work out cheaper to find SH SC side mount. I have just never seen one come up SH in the last two years of looking.
