    Well give me your opinions on which charger/blower to throw on. Its my next mod and was just wondering which works best with my cars stock internals :dunno: I dont want to blow anything but I do want to drive it hard once and a while. I was going to go with Vortech at 9#s with aftercooler (450ish HP.) Give me your opinions....

    Call me bias against other blowers but the KB is the hot ticket right now :dancing6: :banana: :bunny3:, of course any blower like the Vortech, Pro-charger, Paxton would be fine. Just be sure to run a cooler on whatever blower you go with. I like the KB's myself because of the instant boost at low rpm, compared to the centrifugal blowers that make boost as the engine makes rpm's. Take your pick you cant go wrong with any of them. 8) Just dont get greedy with the boost level and your stock engine...........that does not make for a good combo to run 16lbs of boost and a factory bottom end.

    with ur 4.10 gears i would get a vortech.like snakebit said a kenne belle makes instant boost.but im pretty sure u got traction problems as it is??? vortech starts making boost around 3500 rpm so that would get u out of the whole into 7000 rpms!!!! slther96, ask pacecar435(carlos) for a ride in his car.ull be wanting a vortech after that :naughty:

    Good idea with that take a ride thing.... tell him I close (2:00 to 11:00) for the next week, and to stop by my work, otherwise ill call him :thumb: The kenne bell doesnt have a intercooler unit on it and from what GTR has told me, its not good on a stock block. I do have traction issues now but when the SC goes in Ill swap back to the stock 3:27s in my closet or 3:55s. I honestly want the Vortech just so I could feel a vortech AND my stock imrcs kick in at 3500 rpms while W.O.T :dancing6: :banana:

    Going to the track the 23th to see what she runs with the semi-current dyno numbers

    I got off tuesday but Ill meet you at my work anyway.... around 2ish. We'll talk then. Im getting some wheel spacers and mounting the 275s on the stock rim for now, the current 255s are rubbing on my exhaust. For some reason I remember him hooking up when we raced that night in my GT. Unless hes got the stock 3:27s.

    Honestly I dont think so after taking a ride today in the car... i get as much rubber (1st - 3rd, and I have chirped 4th ;D) as he does with 280whp and 4:10s. Its probably around 350-400ish to the wheels, feels like stock gears or 355s maybe... either wayvery Nice car 94pacecar :thumb: BTW you should add "a set of very badly warped rotors" to your modlist :rollinglaugh:

    Well I did the same. I went out and bought the Vortech SQ1 from Steeda. I however don't have a stock motor or suspension. My axle and transmission are stock and I am sure I will have issues eventually with my axel. I am being told with my mods I have now and a good tune I will be putting down over 500 hp to the rear wheels. I also have 4:10 gears and a buddy of mine has 4:10 gears in his 03 Cobra that has 520rwhp. He loves his gears. Then he also drags his cobra at the strip. I hope to have the car done and put together by the 22nd. I will dyno and post numbers. Can't wait to see what it will do. I don't plan to run more than 8lbs of boost (keep it safe). Good luck with your set up.

    ok first off, there are plenty of fish in the sea to be sad over a girl that doesnt want to waste as much time as you do her. So buck up, you have a hot car cruise the strip or something. :khobra: 2nd. i have a 1.5L KB at 11PSI on stock internals w/ 3.73's. Yes i have traction issues but its fun. 291HP and 380TQ
