having trouble finding blower info for 250 X
i am in hte process of building a new motor up for my 92 xf ute, shes a wheezy old six potter at the moment (shagged frrom a fair bit of abuse) and am pretty keen on going for a blower, i have a reasonable bottom end pieced together so far, with a cam, and am gettign teh head ported out, roller rockers ect, but i am having a lot of trouble getting information on setting up a blower, i only want to runa low boost, maybe up to 6 psi tops, am looking at a roots blower, however i cant find any information regarding manifolding for a straight six, i have however found many books dealing with 8 bangers: about the blower i was thinking if i went the roots type avenue i could but the pump on the opposite side of the motor (where the alternator is) to the intake and use a xe /xf efi intake manifold wiht a fairly long straight run from blower to intake, from my limited knownledge about it i think this will be ok to do as i know the roots heats up the air anyway???
i was also looking at a 4 barel holley carby how many changes need to be made to a carby if it is a drawthrough setup with low boost? and the other question is regards timing what do i need to do? i have been told i need to run slightly cooler plugs and does anyone known optimum timing or how can i find it out???
