    i have been thinkin about gettin a small weiand blower to push about 6 psi and give me about 525 hp
    but a freind af mine thinks that i should just run a 100 shot os nitrous and it would be better

    Blower is on Tap everytime you step on the gas...the Nos is not.
    shooting for 525 hp...blower all the way.......No question in my mind.

    recently went this way myself on a 69 camaro with a 400ci......in prcoess of putting blower on the car. (bm 144)

    is centrifugal that much more money than roots? even at relatively low psi levels?

    don't really seem more complex than roots style blowers? played a bit with a 6-71 but if i could do it over, it would be with centrifugal :wink:

    if i was thinking of the pro-charger route...i would just throw in the towel and go Turbo...he has plenty of Room......Just my opinion.
