I have been thinking....

.....again, and down the track I am considering bolting on a vortech or something similar.
Now that leads me to manifolds......I am thinking quad throttle bodies will be near impossible to set up to allow a blower and if it could be done the cost would be out of my league.
So my thoughts go back to buying a TFS "R" or a Victor 5.0

So my question is, a quad throttle body set up is $3300 and single throttle body set ups are around $1500,Will I see $1500 (plus) worth of performance by going to quad throttle bodies over single (TFS "R" or a Victor 5.0 )? and then try to sell it later?
Or will the difference be minor?

Re: I have been thinking....

Why couldn't you have a plenum chamber made that goes over the 8 t/b and the supercharger piping blows into that.That way you still have the awesome manifold & a blown motor.

I guess it would be similar to Steve Leerentveld's twin turbo,supercharged LJ torana.

Re: I have been thinking....

TFS'R or Victor 5.0!!! or victor jnr with efi Conversion Yes you loose torque..But with blower there isn't an issue...Actually the Holley systemax ll flow well .In your case it wouldn't matter that the inlet faces drivers side, as they can't be turned as in TFS,Edelbrock etc...
Or Lower efi with box type upper?? This is for high end power BUT again with blower it brings things back to have better low end torque...

Re: I have been thinking....

the performance you are trying to get from your motor either the tfsr or the victor 50 would be great options, they will have more tha enough flow for your 347, and alot easier to put them on now, then having to swap all your injection setup over later to fit the blower.

Re: I have been thinking....

Yes but you only need to take upper manifold off...
Then the four small bolts that hold fuel rails on...
