Bwhhhhaaaaahahhhaaa.....that's good.....

But no one has answered the "cost" question.
Given all the "other" stuff that goes along to do a blower set up right......
What's it cost to turn your BBC Mag-Mouse into a bonified firing breathing hangranade waiting to happen

Again everyone has opinions, and I agree with speaking with the manufacturers to tap into their knowledge base, I do have a bit of experience with prochargers, and if you can contact them talk to Cary Pangrac or Jim summers, and they are willing to spend some time on the phone you will likely find there are many advantages to them, I built some 502's stock bottom end with better pistons, edelbrock heads, and m-4's blowing through dual quads and they make all kinds of power, don't add barely any height to your engine package, come standard with air- water intercooling and make more horsepower on pump fuel (91) than most other styles of blower, also due to the belt wrap on the pulley it does not have to be so god awful tight which is putting excessive loads on the crank snoout and all the bearings in the engine. I also beleive an earlier post may have been inacurate because I think a centrifugal will not cost you the extra 50 horsepower over a whipple. Nearly half the time it is spinning it doesn't make any boost but is there when you need it only, when you lay into the throttles. speaking of car stuff the mustang racers today are hauling --- and the only stuff that is really fast are turbo cars and procharged cars.

Have you thought about selling your current power and building some NA 572s? What kind of HP are you looking for? Are you going to upgrade your drives?

Look at the mess below - it used to be on ATI/Procharger's web site. If you scroll down you will see a heading: blower HP consumption: 55, 58 and 74 HP. I've been sidelined for the past few years, but I used to do open road racing (silver state classic, pony express) with a 97 Mustang Cobra in the Unlimited division. These were 80-120 mile races on closed section of public highways. Over the years we worked that car up to 205 MPH. I had many sponsors at the time and got lots of coverage. If you look on www.vortechsuperchargers.com web site under "Profiles" and "World's Fastest Cobra" that'd be me. Here's an old article on some of what was in the car http://www.50mustangandsuperfords.co...ehicles/18758/ it's mostly accurate. Vortech used to have video up of the car at speed. Can shoot it to you if you're curious.

A buddy of mine has two on 454's and they seem to do just fine. They're in an '88 model 31' Cig, so the speeds aren't great, but I think he runs about 75 or so. He also just had one rebuilt by the blower shop and he said you can really tell the difference in the engine with the rebuilt one.

I run one on a 522 at 5 lbs boost. It broke 2 transmissions and I had to buy a Huber trans for it. It adds some grunt.
