Two SC 61's = trouble
Join Date: Jul 2001
Turbo's usually cost more to fit,not the same control on boost. Because it's exhaust driven, the energy to drive them is almost free,I have read %10 more back pressure on exhaust..
They make humangous amounts of power.The twin turbo have been banned in the states in one class of drag racing for it was better than every thing els,class were two multifying factors are allowed.
Blowers.. there are quite a few different types. The one's on most
5Ltrs these days are centrifical,much like a big turbo without exhaust housing.Driven off front crank.Centrifical usually make more power from 2k/rpm up,like turbo the more you rev= boost..
Easy to fit in a day.Can easy be taken off and onto another car.
The down side is they take more power to drive them,on a 5 ltr so what!! We only want performance not a top fueler!!
Then there are the blowers like Kenny Bell make that are possitve displacement[look similar to roots type].Power from very low down in the rev range
seen alot on the U.S o.h.c. Fords [Hopefully here soon pluss K.B]
Trouble with these is bonnet clairence..These are similar to what is on the Lightning [f 150?] truck they are faster than some sports cars at over 2 ton, thats some GRUNT!!!!
Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
