Great vids and thanks again!

Interesting how they have the inter-cooler hoses coming over the blower pulley with no protector shroud. A belt break would take those babies out pretty quick (although the 8 rib belt may not break that easily with the low boost).
It just seems like an odd routing but am sure it was thought of for other routes and that was the best.

Apologies if this has been discussed in other threads. The close ups on the engine vid here made me question this as I recently had my belt go on my 2300 Magnacharger blower and there was some collateral damage to the underside hood insulation and if there were hoses above the blower pulley, they would have been cut easily at that RPM (12 lbs boost btw).
