That is without, no matter what I would get the dual coolers it will be the cheapest money that you will spend for the hp

What boat were you in? I was hoping noone would remember my entrance. I was very lucky though, to be able to get on plane with one motor, luggage and full of fuel and still run 55.

I figured you were running big chiefs or some variation lf that.I believe thay require a different style intake than the whipple, Indy I think. I asume you ran those heads with blowers last yr. I will be interesting to see how much hp you pick up with the quads.Has you engine builder given you any numbers. I am hoping to gain about 150hp with an upgrade in heads and the quads. I would love to have the big chiefs, maybe next yr.

I am going to sell my 14-71's blowershops if your interested. Probably everthing from the intake up except for intercoolers which you could replace with dual whipples?????

I Was In The 36 Nor-tech Parked In Front Of The Conch Republic. I Started Off With The Dual Coolers. My Engine Builder Said They Were Good For About 40 Hp. He Figures We Should Pick Up 150 Lbs Of Torque And 75 To 100 Hp On Pump Gas

Was it the one with 1200 Eikerts. If so I talked to him at length about your motors.It fact that is what got me into this mess. He said he had built those and that they made 1200hp on pump gas, and I was hooked. I was considering haveing him rebuild mine to you specic .I was totally suprised to here 1200 on pump gas.

They Only Have 10 Hrs On Them. Keith Builds A Awesome Motor. We Were Originally Going To Run Quad Rotors But They Were Back Ordered So We Went With 14-71's For The Time Being.this Seemed To Be A Good Time To Make The Change

Has any body come up with the honest heat load these blowers put out with the same boost ?? I have called around alot and it seems that it does not matter untill over 12 to 15 lbs then psi seems to have a better speach on the phone plus all the drag guys are using them.The reason the psi motors are breaking is probably due to there boost is high...I am doing 700s , big chiefs and 1671 bds. staying on gas. I am going to look into 2 coolers. Somebody please post heat loads!
