  • Engine: Jet thrust

    Will a stock jet thrust system fit under the hood of a 53 Starliner? In other words would the normal location of the supercharger on the later models fit under the hood? Thanks I'm a newbee

    Yes.........but you will have to cut the pass side inner fender a bit.........Paul Derosier of WCD garage in Northboro, Mass had such a car....you can contact him there.

      I can't say for sure, but I would think that the s/c setup for an Avanti would be the one to go with...the top center mounted blower setup from a Hawk or Lark would require hood modifications like cutting the hood and adding a bump like Hawks have.

      With the Avanti side mounted blower I can see where mods to the passenger side of the inner quarter panel would be necessary.
