It's a draw through supercharger. I'm not a real big turbo fan.
The distributor is an MSD Chevy V8 using every other contact. It was fabbed by using the shaft of the stock KA and the upper half of the MSD.
Ran a 11.49 last week at Pacific Raceway in Kent, WA.
200hp shot of nitrous on top of 10 1bs of boost.

It's a draw through supercharger. 

 

Are those blow-off valves though?


It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

They are blow-off valves but they've converted to backfire valves. Just as simple and easy way to protect the supercharger.

Good. I was worried you were releasing pressurized fuel through them.   ^_^

I sure someone can help me out with this problem.  I have a 1962 Datsun Bluebird 4 door sedan with a 1200cc engine.  I don't have a distributor and haven't used it in a while.  But I need to find a distributor for it.  Can anyone help?  Thanks.
