Post the pictures!!
I am sitting in front of my computer while waiting on a guy to come pick up a boat that I don't think is going to show, so here you go. I have a 511 cu" BBc in my 28 Pantera It currently has twin turbos on it now. ( actualluy it did ) I have removed them in order to go with either an 8-71, or a procharger, or Vortech. The motor is a tall deck 511
4.250 stroke X 4.375 bore It has a good steal crank, Carillo rods, JE pistons, ceramic top rings-gapless second, It has been o-ringed and reciever grooved, It has a set of ported 990
heads, copper gaskets already.Dart single pane intake as of now. I am still alittle up in the air about the induction I want to use, (I wouldn't mind keeping the turbos in a way but they quite down the exhaust a little to much for me.) I like the power claims from the prochargers and vortechs, however I like the cost of the 8-71 a little better. Any one want to take a
comparision shot @ this ? also what kind of power should I expect with either of these setups especially the 8-71. I realize that I did't give any cam specs. However It will not really come into play because it will be changed acordingly. Also If anyone is interested in a complete twin turbo setup , twin carb setup , extremely large PFM intercoolers ( double the normal capacity ) Rayjay 301 e 10 turboes, Exhaust Ect.... Even the cam if someone wanted it. Send me a P.M. and we will talk. I have alot of pictures of these. Thanks Guys, Scott

Here are a few.
Thats a hot Setup!
How much boost were you running?
I just recently bought the boat and to make a long story short I ran it one time , and was having what I thought originaly thought was a condensation problem due to low oilOriginally Posted by caveman
temps , along with a cold charge from those intercoolers. However I have since found out it is a leaky head gasket problem. So I didn't want to run it much untill I found out if it was condensation or not and now I am glad I didn't. I bought the boat from an old man who had the boat for 15 years and hardly knew the differance between boost & power trim!
I can appreciate the Idea of changing to a roots.
However That setup with the right components
which sounds like you have is far superior.
Run some good Cometic head gaskets and
Reassemble it I think you will be happy.
I dont know your capabilitys but if you reassemble
that correctly You will have A Strong setup.
Pressure check the intercoolers. Is the manifolds
and turbo housings water jacketed? if yes then have them
From my view the old man who owned it for fifteen
years may have not known the basics but, someone
he knew did!
How about a pair of 588 quad rotors?? One to run and a backup. You can get a rotation going with rebuilds...and run like a raped ape!!!
I can't talk about it right now, it's being handled by the Postal Inspector. Those guys don't mess around!
