Don't do that. The Heartbeat is lighter than the previous TVS blowers. You won't notice it. You will, however, notice if your cabin is hotter than the gates of hell.

You'll be fine with the 87mm pulley as long as you have the fuel to support it. A good tune will help too. As unreal mentioned, the power you're making has more to do with the safety vs the amount of...

If you made no other changes, you'd be 3-3.5psi higher than you are now. With LT headers and a good exhaust, you're looking at 1.5 to 2psi higher. 9 to 9.5psi would be my guess. I'm at 9.5 to 10 psi...

Personally, I'd leave them alone unless the heads were off for some other reason. I wouldn't tear into a perfectly good running LS3 just for some port work or a head swap. I wouldn't put stockers...

After your ride has been sitting at least 24 hours, IAT's should = OAT's and ECT's before you start it. My Heartbeat came from Magnuson with the wrong IAT scaling. I saw temps at or below ambient at...

I think you're making the right choice. The stage 2 is far from a weeney cam. A few hp on the top end isn't worth issues every where else. I'm guessing 465 to 475 on a d'jet.

Well....prepare for some pissed off folks. It's actually about 3/4 of a pound decrease for each 3mm you increase in pulley size.

84 mm will lose you about a pound of boost. You might want to go to the 87 if you're looking for 9psi. The good news is that if your boost is going up on the top end, your belt isn't slipping. Sounds...

Probably a little soft on the bottom end without boost. Should scream up top though. With the blower on, it's not going to make a huge amount more power vs the stage 2. The difference between a 0...

You can get boost levels through the OBD port if you have the ZR1 MAP sensor. I'm guessing the ZL1 sensor provides that too. A "scan" type gauge that plugs into the OBD port can show boost if you...

With stock cam and 81mm pulley, you should see high 500's to low 600's and mid 11's for boost. With blower cam, mid 600's and 9.5 to 10psi. With meth and blower cam, high 600's to 700 depending on...

I kinda figured as much. I'm at 660ish at the wheels and my Heartbeat only goes up about 15 degrees over where it was at the start of a run. Pretty amazing compared to the older P/D blowers.
