That should up your boost a couple psi. Power should go up 30 to 35 hp:thumb:

He has a bigger blower and is moving more air. His 4" pulley would be the equivalent of you running a 3.17" pulley. His 3.75" would = your 2.97. His boost might be a little lower than what I would...

If a force inducted motor does go boom, it's not the blower's fault. Plain and simple.

Average duration minus (2 X LSA). In your case 227+243/2=235....235-(116X2)=3. Your cam has 3 degrees of overlap. The "positive overlap cams bleed boost" thinking is WAY overdone.

I have no dog in this fight, but I would think that the blower would nearly always be cooler than the motor. With the intercooler system, it has below engine temp coolant circulating through it. Yes,...

I think you told me your specs a while back. I've slept too many times since then. I used to have a good brain for numbers. Not so much any more:sm0:

I think an SLP blower is short a couple of pulleys behind the blower. Might make overdriving it a bit difficult. Try a 3.2 with the shortest Gatorback belt that will fit. Add a little alky and enjoy!...

Yeah, upgrade the tensioner and intall the smallest Gatorback belt that you can pry on there. Stick the belt in the oven on warm for 30 minutes before the install. Don't tell the wife you're doing...

Agree with Slickas. You're suffering from big time belt slip. I'd stick with something like a 3.4" pulley until you add the o/d rear pulleys. You might want to strongly consider a blower cam...

It looks like it was run without oil in the crankcase. Someone started it up, it made noise, and they shut it down. Damage done.

Yup, you can cram a potatoe in an exhaust pipe and get the same effect. Even more boost and even less power.

I'd concentrate more on a bigger heat exchanger, bigger coolant reservoir, and a bigger pump. Feed your intercooler more and cooler coolant. 416 if you have to, but the power gains over a 376...

Most with lower compression run more timeing. Cylinder pressure is probably similar to a higher compression motor running less timing. A bad tank of fuel can get you either way. A low compression...
