Default Blower shop 250 vs Weiand 256 or ???

Hey there all. I am in desperate need of an intercooler for my motor. Its a 540 with a tbs 250 blower. Teague no longer offers the superchiller and they have no intentions of bringing it back. My question is, does anyone know if the bolt pattern or footprint of the tbs blower is possibly the same as say the weiand 256 that is on the 575sci motors? They still make those. Maybe I could adapt it to work for me possibly. Or does anyone know another source for an intercooler for the tbs 250 blowers? Thanks in advance!

Glen @ TBS should be able to answer that for you but I can confirm the upper throttle plate is the same bolt pattern

Pretty small blower for a 540ci engine.

Sell your 250 setup and the upgrade to an 8 or 10-71 will be less than the cost of adding an intercooler and plumbing

Wouldn't I need an intercooler for the 8-71 then at that point?

no, the 250 is a small blower. Too move the volume of air you need for the 540 its out of its efficiency range and heating the air. The bigger blower wont be spinning as fast to move the same if not more air, and wont create as much heat

A 250 is 250cid, an 871 is 436cid, I would recommend upping the blower size as the others stated above. With the 250 chiller combo you will need to spin it up even higher, just not a great setup.
