Default Who has procharged 496's ?

A friend is thinking about doing that . What do you think about the package ? How does it effect the warrenty on a brand new motor ? IS this a good way to go ,or is there something else that he would be happier with ? Where is the best place to buy them ?

Also ,It would be a VERY mild set up . Thanks !

Doesn't the 496 have cast iron parts not forged parts. Don't put a blower to cast parts is what I've been told. It will disinigrate the motor.

That would be good if they went to forged parts, then those 496's would really be bullet proof. Nice little motor though!

Before I got the 525sc I wanted to put a blower on my old merc 454L, the carbed 454 w/cast parts. My mechanic couldn't stop me fast enough! Thank god he did though cause that motors been good for Audiofn

With 3 psi you would be up to 500 HP and that probably would be easy on the engines with 6 psi I believe you can get up to 650 HP. With 12 psi probably 1000 HP. So what if it's "just a short run"
