Default Have anyone tried blowers on Merc 377 Scorpions?

Hi, I have a Fountain with twin 377 Scorpions. Very satisfied with everything, but as everybody else, I want more speed..... Have someone here installed a blower of some kind on this engine?

Very thankful for all inputs!

Yes. There is a guy on the west coast that put a Whipple on a Red and White Bat Boat. I heard it was stupid fast.

Not to get off subject but since the 496 HO is not going to be built by merc what small block are they using with the super charger for the "replacement"? Will it be the 377SC?

I actually have a set of 377 Whipple superchargers for sale that were tested on a 30 Motion, They totally woke the boat up. If you are interested let me know we can work out some numbers, I'll take a few pics and send them to you.

Put a post in the general racing section ask for the Red & White Bat boat with Whipple. I think his name is Rick and is from CA
