Good morning: If you are just wanting to experiment, I will offer this: In 1954 The Kaiser auto was offered equipped with a McCullough supercharger from the factory. The supercharger was belt driven, and its' output (air) was ducted to a box that surrounded the carburetor. In that way, the carburetor did not have leakage problems, nor problems with float bowl system. It might be possible to supercharge the 8n, but more as a hobby, not a real payoff, in my humble opinion.

1957 T'bird also had a similar supercharger option.

I once saw a pickup truck at the rough and tumble tractor show In Lancaster pa that some farm kids hooked a forge blower to the intake on the passenger side Door post, not sure if it was a for but definitely in the the 20-30s, Kinda a rat rod but intriguing in design, the passenger kid cranked like hell on that blower, I guess it gave power to the motor or he wouldn’t of been doing it, I just wanted to see if it was plausible. Would be pretty cool to see a champion blower sticking out the side pushin air into the old 8n.
