Here's something up your alley..
Definitely thought about it after seeing the article in the tech section. Decided to try the Volvo route first to cut down on time.
Posted this to my thread in the forced induction forums. It's the baseplate for a Mercedes Benz M62 supercharger. Blower bolts directly to the flat area. Tensioner and idler are integrated. Way too perfect of a fit.
Only problem that isn't a small matter of fabrication to solve is the pulleys. Options are to use a twin v belt on the blower, a twin v belt to serpentine jackshaft setup, or as @adsm08 suggested, finding a serpentine crank pulley off a '86 Aerostar 2.8.
Have been trying to get a hold of this guy to see what the pulley on his crank is, but no luck to date.
