These superchargers are for the hard core enthusiast!
All 8-71 marine kits are equipped with the extra tough 8mm (two piece billet snout) belt systems for durability while on the street or water. They will accommodate 2 “V” belt pulleys. All kits can be used with some marinized engine accessories, but may require extensive modifications to bracketry or mounting locations.

Weiand does not recommend using a supercharger with a Gilmer-toothed belt and pop-off valve in an enclosed engine compartment. There is a high risk of explosion in the event of a backfire. 8-71 superchargers are perfectly suited for engines with 7.5:1 to 8:1 compression ratios but may require race gas unless pulley ratios are altered to reduce effective compression ratio below 12:1. Weiand recommends that all kits use double keyed crankshaft and double keyed, steel, SFI approved balancer. Kits include manifold, blower assembly, drive snout, pulleys, belt and hardware. Will not fit 8.1L (496 cu in) or 7.4L Vortec big blocks. Big Block kits fit standard deck motors only. Spacers are available for tall deck engines. Due to the wide variety of installation possibilities, it may be necessary to consult with a Weiand Supercharger Technical Rep at 270-781-9741 for assistance in selecting the proper kit for your application.
