The 525SC blowers are way too small for 540ci engines. They'll fit, but they are too small.

Yes, too small. Carb size really has nothing to do with it. Besides that, a 1050 is stock on a 525sc which is 454ci. You would have spin the 177 at its max rpm--about 13000, just to make maybe 5lbs of boost on a 540ci engine. Spinning it that fast creates a ton of heat, reduces the density of the intake charge and can cause detonation.

How about changing the intake and bolting on a small block, and lowering the speed?

The blowers would work great for small blocks. Probably too much carb.
