If you don't smooth the top of that piston, you're inviting detonation. If you do smooth it, you'll be taking quite a bit of material off the top of the piston. Your compression ratio will be down in...

I disagree with this part of your post just a little. Just because the boost isn't going up doesn't mean the power isn't going up. A TVS typically has a pretty flat boost curve. Boost level will vary...

I've run both. They're both TVS2300 blowers. The Heartbeat comes in a smaller package and fits in places where the jackshaft Maggie might not. It also runs cooler and recovers quicker going in and...

You can make the same peak power with a much smaller cam. With the smaller cam, you'll make more power on the low end too. No way should a cam only car pull harder than yours on the bottom end.

Yep, boost level doesn't determine your fuel needs. Power production does. If your power goes up, your fuel needs go up too. No matter the boost level.

I wonder if the 6l80's in the trucks are vastly different than the Vette versions. In the Vette, the 6L80's shoot craps at anything much over stock power levels. Making hard shifts behind a stout...

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.
