I would like to hear some information about this supercharger.... people that have them love them... people who dont have them hate them..   I hear all kinds of stuff about these superchargers.

Let me know what you think, if you have or had one,... how did it perform?  Im looking for more fun on the street than at the track... However I feel with E-85 fuel and boost, it shouldnt be a sloutch at the track

I ran one back in 1998 on a stock shortblock with Performer 5.0 heads, f-cam, shorty headers, c4, 3.27 gear and numerous carbs. Never could get the carb figured out. It either ran great at wide open throttle/drove terrible or had nice drive ability and lost performance.

I didn't have the motor long enough to take it to the track...I blew it up under 15# of boost. The Mallory fuel pump I was using decided to quit at about 5500rpms in 2nd gear and BOOM! But up till them it was flying!

The generate a ton of heat. I could barely keep the car cool even with a new 3-core radiator, water pump, 160 and/or 180 thermostat.

If it is a track only car and you don't mind running race gas(with 15#) they can perform fairly well.  If it is for a street/daily driven car...get your boost somewhere else.

Hey Guys
have been running this 174 on the street this year and love it
only prob is blowin tranys have now gone to a stick toploader
no more c4 for me
the heat is a wee bit of a issue but keeping the boost to 6 or 7 psi is working for me

I had one back in 97/98 when they first came out for the 302. Mine was a B&M at the time. It worked well. I had no complaints with it. It was in a 85GT 306/b303/TFS iron high port heads/C4 w/3.55 gears. It was a full weight car, PS/AC/6 pt bar/ nothing removed from the car. It ran 11.70@115. I thought it was pretty quick.

Thanks for the replies... how much boost and if you run 10 pounds or more....did you have belt slipping problems...  I would like to know more about the higher levels of boost...so far it sounds as if they work well at 7 pounds or less????? 

Keep the information coming...I think this blower has great potential,but it just needs to be fine tuned,  are any of you guys taking the time to really see what the blower could actually do? or did you just get tired of it.... It seems like most guys who have one end up selling them????   

Realistically a stroked Windsor is the chaeper and more reliable way to go for horsepower  per $$$


Thanks

Brent

I think I was running around 11-12 pounds of boost. The unit I had was a 10rib blower drive. At the time I was running the smallest blower pulley they made. It worked well, but I felt that was all I was going to get out of the combo. The system as far as I was concerned was maxed out. SO if that is the range of what your looking to make and you will be happy with that. Then I would recommended it. If not then I would recommend going with come sort of blow-thru vortech/paxton set up.

A water/methanol injection + a boost retard module will help you to take away a detonation.
For what I read over internet is that with a such blower, I never seen a setup producing safely 10psi or more.

The users of a such blower said it's a kick in the a**, it does push hard and smoke tire easily.
