i suppose if you havent the space behind the seats you can gilmer belt drive it.
That might save the crank some in one way but load it in another way.
yeah in a mid mount youde wanna avoid hair dryers as the heat would be crammed in, unless you ran long ram induction,thats not what id image youde want.too busy in the engine bay,
Car jack a dodge demon and strip it for parts
then all you need is a bellhousing adapter plate and bobs your uncle.
just kidding about the car jacking.
Good crank a must. There was a screw supercharger a long time ago that was banned from drag racing, but found it's way to land speed cars instead. It was pretty good but blowers don't lend themselves to intercoolers so much. Lots to think about in the small engine bay. The other thing is cooling the beast down. I never got into the Dodges except for the trucks. I like the Cummins trucks, a lot.

My fav engine long ago was a 427, Pro High-Ram, twin Predator carbs and a Unilite. Simple stuff. 2385p Sealed Power pistons, balanced rods with good bolts and steel crank. Comp cams 292 hydraulic with Sealed Power IIRC fast bleed lifters for vacuum. Set into my Datsun 280z with a powerglide.
