HPS has been known to have some major issues, mostly with turbo kits done, but they have had quite a few motors blow up on them. They have since gone out of business because of it.

It's nothing that can't be worked with. There are quite a few shops that have a MUCH better rep. then HPS and actually know what they're doing. Who's gonna do you ProCharger install?

Enough said. Detoxx know his shit too with that shop. If HPS had their hand in that car, it'll get worked out.

Because you don't make 490 at the tire with a blower cam, that is almost dedicated NA territory right there.

You can when you aren't a mile high. It's probably not optimum for his setup but Allan and the boys at Futral will take care of him.

Really?? I just made 490 @ the tire and 463 Tq. With a mid sized cam 227/235 with a 115 LS that will work real nice with a blower

They seem like good guys. I'll definitely give them the business.
One more question...with the cam, heads, and full exhaust I have right now I get a really unique loping sound that is unmistakable. What would change if I put a blower cam?

im running a NA cam with a procharger and put 715 to the ground. from talking to Procharger you want an LSA no larger then 113. Mine worked. Not that you cant get better return with a blower cam, but im happy.
