How big of an electric motor do you need to pump enough air to boost an LS3 (or L99) 5psi? What kind of fan/blower are you using? How is the blower speed controlled so that boost remains static (or...

You can spin the EForce only so fast. It will only make so much power. As stated, the engine size only moves the torque peak around. You can spend big bucks on a 454 vs much smaller bucks on a stock...

Mr. cc-rider, what are you IAT's at cruise in relation to ambient. Also, how high do they go up in relation to ambient when you're under boost? At what boost level? Thanks.

I think you're missing some boost (and possibly power) somewhere. Your boost should be closer to 10psi the way you're equipped. I'm comparing it to my current Heartbeat TVS2300 and my older jackshaft...

Regardless whether you choose a Camaro or a Vette, it needs a blower. Don't think that you can avoid the blower by choosing the Vette. Even at 3200 lbs, a Vette needs boost. It's too damn much fun to...

Oil(less) turbos are a neat idea. Do they work? How long do they last? Is there a grease zerk on the top so you can at least give them a little squirt every now and then???

Heartbeat pulleys are sized in mm's with 3mm increments. Mine is an 81mm which is a little less than 3.2". My LS3 makes 664/612 through an M6. A little less than 10psi. That's with a mild cam, LT...

I'm running two Maggie TVS2300's. One is a front drive on a 6.0L truck motor. Other one is a Heartbeat on an LS3 Vette. Both run at 12 to 14 degrees over ambient at cruise. You've got issues if your...

You'd be in the upper 600's with a manual transmission. I have no clue how to convert that to the way you're configured. The motor will make the power, no doubt.

So....what do you think the LSA blower gave you that the 2.3L (bigger) Maggie didn't? I understand you like the looks, but damn, that seems like a lot of money spent for a sideways move...at best.

He's probably looking at 11-12psi if his belt doesn't slip. I'm running an 81mm and I see about 9.5psi. I have long tube headers and a blower cam though.

Unless the cam is pretty aggressive, I wouldn't add a higher stall converter with a p/d blower. Especially a TVS. With a centri, I would if qtr mile/stoplite performance really matters to you.
