Blue Devil Products. It will not work with the GenII(black) SC'ers. It only works on the grey ones. Been there, done that. URD was supposed to have something sometime soon.zemuron99 said:Hey, Gang.
Anybody know the name of the co. that makes the add-on nose bracket for the 3.4 L s/c? Had the name and number a while ago....has now disappeared into a black hole.
Would also be interested in anyone has a used one to sell....

Shait. There was no way the Dlue Devil bracket would fit on mine. The nearest hole was the bolts tha hold the nose cone on and are set back about 3" too far. So, yours has a hole(s) on the machined surface just adjacent the pulley? I wonder if this is the difference between Gen II &III. Where is Gadget now? I'm glad it works for you though. I guess I'll keep waiting for the day for it to shear off the intake.NoliWan said:I have a black 2nd Gen Charger & I use it on mine-- some came with the mounting holes & some without...???-- I still have two if them if you are still interested send me an email---
Note bracket on nose cone...
It's just a universal pod made by Autometer. It mounts via a swivel the I just screwed into the column. I think it was pretty cheap since I didn't do the chrome or carbonfiber.ERIC TACOMA said:hey bud where did you get that bracket for the egt gauge. i really like it better than the dual gauge pod.
Well, since there a only a few bolts that hold the SC'er to the engine and it's aluminum intake the force exerted is arguably approaching a failure threshold. I don't know if it has been documented failure yet but the brace is a preventative measure to keep it bolted tight. That nose cone sticks out pretty far from the body of it and has a good amount of force trying to pull it down. You could say we are all too worrisome or anal but I wouldn't like to have to retap the bolts ahould they pull out or think what the failure would to to the engine.Jamier2 said:Just curious, since I'm planning on upgrading to a supercharger in the next year or so...
What do you need a nose bracket for? Basically what does it do for the charger?
Just got my Gen. 1 SC installed, and now I to am concerned about the nose cone bracket. I am going to attempt to make my own. It shouldn’t be to difficult. Their is one thing I need to know. Where the bracket bolts on the bottom (I think to the water pump) it looks as if it is recessed in this a bit where the bolt seats. Kind of hard to explain but does anyone have pics of the back side of the bracket?Jamier2 said:OK, it's just a reinforcing bracket then. I think I would be anal about it too - that's a lot of money to be tied up in something that even seems to be vulnerable. I thought it might be some sort of performance upgrade or something.
Good info, I'll see what I can come up with.Gadget said:I have a nose support bracket on my lots of things to do list. Someday it will happen.
There was someone that was making them for sale and were up ready for orders, but I can't remember who it was. Maybe someone here will.
I have some pictures here of the pulley plate. You can see it bumps out to clear the timing belt cover an it has a tit on the backside to act as a spacer that is hard to see in the pictures.
I hope these pictures do you some good.
Oh, that is not the water pump. It is the fan support bracket. The water pump is deep inside the timing belt cover and is driven by the timing belt.
Noliwan has a Gen II and we have Gen III that does not have the threaded hole in the nose drive housing to mount the bracket. You could drill and tap that hole but I don't think I'm going to.wisctaco04 said:Shait. There was no way the Dlue Devil bracket would fit on mine.
