    Going to be forced to swap to electric fans. My mechanical fan would hit the ductwork coming to the throttle body.

      These show the hood clearance on a 69 charger with a factory hood and 440. There is more clearance than it looks like in these pictures. I'm gonna say 1" is the closest spot which is drastically better than my last setup

          Sure, I was planning to list the stuff I use to plumb the intake once I get it fabbed up. I am planning to cut a hole in the inner fender so that I can run the filter in cool air for the intake. I have bought several pieces to help in this process and I will list them below:

          4.25" x 4" reducing elbow to go on throttle body (this is the one you asked about)

          This 4" aluminum tube will go next

          This 4" to 3.5" reducer will go next
          https://www.summitracing.com/parts/knn-08050

          I will have to figure out the rest as I go, but here are some other things I ordered to help get where I want it

            Don't get too caught up in the numbers.
            Just give the Engine what it wants &
            Let the numbers be what they are.

I will document my install here for any other Mopar guys interested
                    What supercharger are you thinking about doing?

                      Nice...I've been swamped at work and out of the loop. Kind of had to prioritize taking care of the truck before moving back to the Charger/Duster. Any more progress or issues on the install?

                        I have looked into the Torque Storm superchargers and also a Pro-Charger setup from the supercharger store. I decided against the Torque Storm setup for a few reasons. I am also considering stroking it to a hair over 500 ci instead of supercharging it.

                          The install went really good and easy. The other things have slowed me down, it's the busy time of year on the farm. I have also relocated the battery to the trunk, added electric fans, ect. Can't wait to try out the pro flo on the road, it does great sitting stil .

                            I finished up the plumbing for the air inlet. The air filter is mounted directly in front of the drivers side tire. Hopefully it will get some cooler air over there.

                              What turn you away from the torqstorm if I might ask?

                                The TorqueStorm doesn't flow a lot of CFM (this is why they offer a dual supercharger setup) which means I would have to spin it faster and I would prefer a larger unit that I could spin slower to provide the same CFM / PSI. The other reason is I have talked with them on the phone a couple times and the guy was a little rude once. If he is a little rude when I'm a potential customer then I would imagine it would be bad after the purchase. I may be completely wrong, this is just the impression I got.
                                If I go with a supercharger it will be a procharger from the supercharger store. They have a great reputation from what I have seen.
                                I am now thinking about leaving it naturally aspirated and putting in a small stroker crank and making it a 505 cu in. I can't leave anything alone, even when it functions just fine. Any of these options will be a few years down the road.
