    Don't know what to say. I just say what I saw.

    That's why it would be nice to know pulley dimensions.

    For what it is worth, I have a stock sn95 Vortech Lower and 3.33 upper that might be better suited for your setup. (What originally comes with sn95 Vortech kits)...

    Ahh... I can't [although I have to] wait to put some boost on my 410 and destroy my drivetrain!!

    Blew through my G-force once already and it has ALL the goodies. Destroyed the input, 3rd was getting ready to check out as well. My trans builder thinks it will hold up now...

    If I had to do it over again, T-56 all the way. Wasn't a viable option when I was building my car, though.

    Same here, cost is a factor but my rebuilt, 10-spline Tremec 3550 is living on borrowed time

    When it blows, t-56 Magnum. done. Cost wise, its a steal these days. I have more in my t-5 now after that rebuild than a Magnum.

    When I was building the car, only choices I really had were G-force or Viper spec t-56. Viper spec t-56 was $$$$$$$$ and my trans builder swore the G-force could handle it... ha.

    Nice thing about the G-force is its bolt in. Pull t-5 out, put another t-5 in.

    The kit should be here any day now so I can measure the pulleys myself but I just asked him now and he said it has an upgraded crank pulley as well. Im just going to put the stock blower pulley on it and go from there. I wouldnt mind enjoying the car before it blows up. I guess I need to get a different belt for it too.

    If you're able to control or reduce total timing your head gaskets will be fine. Octane and less total timing are both necessary when dealing with a power adder. Set it up correctly, and you should be fine, if you don't add octane and reduce total timing you may have issues.
    Good luck

    Ok so kit came in. It came with 6.88 crank and the blower pulley is 2.95 but also came with a 3.33. Any idea what kinda boost I would see with each? And what belt would I use?

    You have a Stockish longblock.

    6.88 with a 3.33 will probably net roughly 8lbs at 6k. That's what comes in the HO kits.

    Per Vortech each step down in pulley should roughly give you another 1 psi or so...

    So the 2.95 wouldnt be completely unrealistic to use?
