What do you guys think, after my last engine ordeal were thinking of using my heads and carb with all forged internals and roller cam to build a sick blower motor! Aluminum Canfield heads with 2.08/1.60 valves and the rest of the combo is custom to the blower! Thoughts complaints?? I was thinking of a 400 sbc but it turned out to be a bad core!!

I had a Weiand 172, mated to a 388 Stroker for a short period of time... one NICE combo.
I'd recommend the MSD BTM (which I also had) ignition box to control detonation/boost... and keep the compression ratio right around 8.5:1... good luck.

baby blower!! I scored a polished version with all the parts for 800 bucks. Plus my new motor is in the process of being built so I thought well, if it's built right it can't hurt??

That's a GREAT deal... do yourself a favor right off the bat and check into getting an MSD BTM ignition box... it has the controls to control the boost from inside the car ! Blowers don't like to run lean... it's cheap insurance !

Sweet deal. I also ran the MSD 6 BTM box.
