IMHO N/A is fine if your running a big motor. ie- something bigger than a 4.6L 281 Mod motor.Los said:I want to do an N/A kinda thing but I dunno. Something about a Kenne Bell.
Yup thats about the same with my Vortech V2-SQ. Im running 8 psi consistant, with the MPH custom tune, all the needed componets, ie: injectors, Fuel pump, 1 degree cooler spark plugs. and im making 410hp and 420tq at the rear wheels with stock exaust from the manifolds all the way back. and everything eles is stock too. with DT loss im at about 475hp and 485tq at the crank. again not all motors are the same. im lucky this thing hassnt blown yet. since they say 400 hp is about the max at the crank you should have with the stock bottom end.DHGBULLITT said:Good morning folks, 1543 has the K-B 9psi kit intercooled for the bullitts, before the kit in stock form the motor made 239 rwhp, after the install with the k-b tune it went up to 380 rwhp with all stock exhaust. Now have bassani catted x pipe with 2 1/2 in. mac system. I do love the sound of that WHINE !!!! Jim Bell told me that the tune was at the limit for a safe tune on pump gas. I have been very satisfied with it. By my calculations figuring in 15% for drive train loss its making 437 hp at the crank.
I have seen a lot of guys with vortech style blowers complain about changing the belt. With a KB it is not much more difficult or lengthy than a stock setup.Los said:What's easier to deal with? A vortech style blower or roots as far as maintentance?
paxton just released a self contained version of the novi 2000. i dont think the bullitt kit will be ready for a while though.OGBATMAN said:Vortechs/Paxtons run off the engine oil. Which means the the s/c gets fresh oil everytime the oil is changed.
ProChargers r self contained. U have to remember to change the oil.
KB's not sure.
I'm thinking the same thing. I'll look into this further. There is a Mach1 on my site with a Eaton blower ~ nice gains on just a stock 4v.BC said:I have seen a lot of guys with vortech style blowers complain about changing the belt.

+1....helty said:While both blower types will make similar peak power numbers at the same psi, you have to look at the ENTIRE power range. A twin-screw will give you tons more power under the curve than a centri.
I have a Vortech and honestly, there are times I wish it was a KB. This comes after riding in a KB car and then mine back-to-back. Still love the Voretch, but Id really like to have instant boost.
