HEY GUY'S, THANKS FOR THE IMPUT!! I HOPE MY FINGERS HOLD OUT FOR THIS! I PUT AROUND 60 MILES ON A RM250 TODAY! MAN, THATS HARD ON AN OLD MAN.

MR. PAYTON, WHAT KIND OF INCREASE IN PERFORMANCE DID YOU GET VS. THE STOCK SET-UP! WHAT KIND OF MAINTANCE, IS INVOLVED, IN THE TURBO'S THEMSELVES?



MR.WHIPPLE{don't squeeeeze the charmin} THE WHIPPLE WOULD BE A GREAT CHOICE , I LOVE THE OLD ROOTS STYLE PUFFER!!!!!!
THAT REMINDS ME OF MY OLD 66CHEVELLE!!!!! BUT AFTER PRICING ALL THE APPs it seems like the HAIR DRYER IS THE WAY TO GO.. BUT THEN AGAIN I DONT KNOW JACK.... ABOUT THEM!! I'VE READ THAT INSTALLNG THEM TAKES 45 MINUTES!!! yea right!!! I FIGURE 3 HOURS PER MOTOR!!!!!!!

THANKS AGAIN FOR THE INPUT!!!!

Hey Mr. Cat, "no harm done" I'm probably going back to far, but is the PLAYERS nightclub, still in arlington? they had a 3 for 1 happy hour there, that was killer

I guess I'm really looking at the most "bang for the buck" After looking at websites and only a couple of phone calls, I could buy two turbo's for the price of one blower!!! MAMA is tight with the checkbook!!!!!!!

my boat was setup this way when I bought it. The previous owner built the engine with the turbos in mind so he was limited a little on his performance as he built the with 7.5:1 copm ratio. He said it was a huge increase in performance. Be sure you go with an boost retard setup if you are staying with the stock comp ratio and probably an intercooler. I don't feel an intercooler is necessary in my setup because of my comp ratio and I limit my boost to about 6lbs. The builder was estemating 700+ hp @ 7 lbs. @5400rpm

Hey Payton, Thanks for the info!!! I was 99% sure , i wanted an intercooler, even though the 6.2s have a forged steel crank,and alum. pistons. They also come stock with a steel billet roller type cam. The rpm range on the stock motor, is 4800 to 5200 rpms . I think if I keep the Boost somewhat tame, I should get motor life, plus gain 150 to maybe 200 ponies!!!!!

mama said said I was a retard,I didn,t need to buy one. ha!! ha!! I,ll remind her of that when she's yelling, "PASS HIM, PASS HIM"

IS IT SPRING YET??????

Hi Dustin, how much height do your superchargers add to the scorpions? How much horsepower is gained? How long can the engines be expected to live if brand new?

CBR,

The 6.2 and 350 Mag add no height or frontal clearance, the Scorpion adds 2" in height, but no front clearance. Scorpion intake is lower than the covers for the 6.2 and 350 mag.

mamatryed, I'm not sure where you saw 45 minutes for installation, but any major performance item as detailed as a supercharger will take far longer than 45 minutes. Now it would take about 3-4 hours if you have the motor out next to the tool box, but in the boat, not removing the interior, your looking at an easy 8-10 hours per motor. Also, a Whipple is a twin-screw type supercharger, not a roots-type. Twin-screws are far more efficient than roots superchargers.

catmando, we hired a new company too redo the website, but is a major undertaking because were redesigning everything.

Thanks,
Dustin
