Re: Harmonic Balancers
Thanks for the replies. Yeah i've done a little research on these s/c's and found out that in theory i could spin 1 to 12000 rpm and will give 7 psi but this would be heating it air too much and at that speed. Over 11k the resin coating on the rotors will start to break down. Thats why i'm going for 2 and hopefully do upto 10 psi at slower rotor speed.
Belt whip? i'm assuming you mean when the clutch engages and it has to spin up to speed. I was going to run them full time to avoid this prob even though it would have been kinda cool to just flick a switch for extra grunt.
I did forget about the bolt holes in the harmonic balancer, i'll look into that option as well as the time gets closer although would be neater and better balanced with just a balancer swap, just need to buy a MIG welder first then the project can get going.
Firstly i want to try a blow thru carb system (pressurised box). Main reason for blow thru is that these s/c were not designed to run fuel through them and will be the least costly, plus i can run an intercooler this way too. If i can't get it going right or even if i do and decide to chase some extra grunt i'll go EFI but i'll give it a good go with the carb first.
