Drivejunky has just come out with their new system that features the supercharger belt that only runs one thing, the supercharger. The belt length is short, and runs a gates heavy duty automatic tensioner, similar to their limited production Magnuson and Whipple blower builds. The tensioner can be seen under the custom machined cover on the front of the engine. This drive system simplifies and shortens the belt run that the factory engines run in Corvette and Cadillac CTSV configurations. The blower drive, and accessory drive belts feature Gates’ new RPM Racing belt made from a High-modulus, low-stretch polyester tensile cord with the strength to transmit load more accurately with less vibration. All accessories run on a separate belt behind the blower drive. This is the first system that solves the potential bearing failure problem by running the GM type II pump with a 6 rib belt (normal) rather than the 8 rib blower belt.
Here’s a few shots of the new Holley LT Oil pan installed on an LT4 in a 1970 Chevelle, plenty of room all the way around.
If you have a problem with the stock PCV sump and connections, Mighty Mouse have a number of solutions for both the LS and the LT1/LT4 series of crate engines. This kit replaces the factory PCV valve stopping airflow (and oil) into the floor of the supercharger on Gen V LT4 DI engines (2015+ Z06 and CTS-V) LT4 PCV ‘ported’ fitting re-routes the crankcase flow to the outside of the engine, so that it can be used for external ventilation. The PCV can be set up with an -6AN inlet from valley cover using included adapter.
Here’s a good look at the Morrison clip featuring C7 Corvette uppers and lowers (left side). They use a C6 upright because there’s more options available, I used Wilwood’s 14″ 6 piston brakes.
This shot is from the Morrison catalog and shows more detail without the discs and calipers installed (right side).

1967 Chevelle by Galpin Autosports
GM introduced this build at SEMA in 2015, which inspired me to build my version for my ’68.
There’s a lot of pictures and details that allow you to get a good look at what’s going on under the hood.
