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)

Default blower

oh that's easy :lol: definitely a blower, but why not centrifugal? have to agree N20 is great bang for buck, only problem is i always had an empty bottle.. :cry:

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.
