There's a blower type to suit everybody, but as was mentioned by several previous posts, more torque at low RPM is not always necessary or beneficial.

Very well said! There is plenty of info here. It's all about what you are looking for. Do you want to jump out of the hole, high cruise, or all out top end??

I think "the best blower" is the one that delivers the most trouble free hrs., (build quality/reliability). Engine life depends on if the internals are compatable with the chosen blower, maintenance, and how it is driven.

Here's the latest dyno sheet. Stock 540 Bulldog - 500 HP brought up to 800 HP with hot air entering the blower from the dyno headers. If you correct to standard conditions (60F) like everybody does, it's about 850 HP, no accessories. Shape of the torque curve is the result of boost increasing with RPM, compensating for the heads and cam which are falling off.

Caution, blower porn:

W305R (radial entry)


Can run single, dual or triple carb, throttle bodies, bird, buzzard or condor injectors, etc:


Notice the prototype 16-rib serpentine belt system.


We are very behind schedule on these, but well worth the wait. From the current numbers, were 30-40hp OVER the PSI with 3-4lbs of boost LESS!!!! We will have some production units in November. Prices will be released in 2 weeks.

Thank you,
Dustin

Shipping the first batch out in November, we have 4 versions, top inlet, rear inlet, one with 1 mag rotor, one aluminum and then one with both aluminum rotors. Mag rotor is only for customers that are going to exceed 1400-1500hp, otherwise the dual aluminum is fine. This was purely to allow higher compressor speeds with less rotor deflection.

Thanks
