Ha! I'm guessing your situation, at 1000 rwhp isn't quite the norm. Your 1000 hp neighborhood is nice one to discuss, but not one that most of us mere mortals are ever going to visit. I can see you...

Damn, how'd we ever get along with 1.75" primaries. Now, we're leap frogging the 1.875's to go to 2". I wouldn't change thinking the hp/$ exchange rate would be covered. If there's something...

So, being familiar with all of those engine problems on at least a dozen examples, do you see any pattern or common cause?

Blowers don't pop motors. Poor tunes, inadequate fuel, mullet operators, or a poorly thought out combination can all cause a motor to go south. There's nothing inherently wrong with an EForce that...

That's engine hp, not rear wheel hp that they are quoting. With the EForce coming with a 3.75" pulley and the Maggie a 3.8, the EForce's TVS is going to be spinning slightly faster and should make...

I have a 224/234 116+2 custom specced cam under a Heartbeat Maggie and love it. It's absolutely perfect for what I was looking for. May not be even remotely close to what you're after. The cam...

That's spinning that poor TVS 21,600 rpm at 6000 engine rpm. What are you doing to semi control IAT's?

The Heartbeat is similar to the EForce as far as fitment goes. It's not anywhere near as tall as the older Maggie TVS units. It fits under a stock C6 Vette hood.

The Heartbeat is going to limit you somewhat unless you get a bigger crank pulley. It's a front drive and a 3.2" pulley is your smallest pulley option. I like mine, but feel it's more at home under...

I'm guessing you will need a cam to get there. Maybe on a heavily meth dependent tune on a cool day on a loose dyno......Good luck. It will be a fun ride no matter what the dyno says:thumb:

If you have a choice, go with the bigger blower. If you're car shopping and come upon a Camaro with the smaller blower, I wouldn't write it off unless I wanted 650 or 700 rwhp. The smaller blowers...

Not sure what else you're looking for. The recipe is pretty clear. SmokedSS's version is a little more than needed because he has an A6. His would be closer to 700 with an M6.

To hit 650 wheel, you need a blower cam and overdrive rear pulleys. Your 3.8" front pulley should do fine. You don't have to go apeshit with the cam. Something like this...

I thought that GT9 cam was a "smooth idle" blower cam. It actually shakes a little at idle? How fast is your idle set? Nice set up. My old LS3 was at 650rwhp with a 3.3" front pulley, just a tad...

If the 3.4" front with 1:1 rears give you more boost than the 3.8 with o/d rears, something is very wrong. The math simply doesn't lie.

My experience has been closer to the .1" = 1psi. If you have LT headers and stock cam, I'd bet your boost with the 3.4" would be over 8.5psi. Your altitude might change things though. Maybe someone...

Stock on Camaros is 1:1 (both 3.25") on the rear. The non cogged o/d pulleys are 3.49 driving a 3.0 (3.49 divided by 3 = 1.163). The diameter of the cogged o/d pulleys doesn't matter as much as the...
