      So, I hit my target of 4 lbs of boost with a peak of 5.5 lbs at 7000 RPM. I programmed the map sensor to take out 2* per lb.Car feels better then ever!! Going to a track rental in a few weeks,would like to see 10 to 12 lbs:D

        Well God is good,,,,and so is boost! Went to Lebanon Valley Raceway for the weekend of 10/22/17.Made 6 passes on Saturday and 4 on Sunday.Saturday I stayed on pump gas Taking 2* out after each pass.It kept picking up till 24* and it fell off a hair.Put it back to 26*.Best pass on the mountain was 9.7 @ 140 on pump gas.
        Was making passes with Bill and his AWB HEMI.That trans brake got me by 2 or 3 outta the gate!!....LOL

            I expected the boost levels to be much higher.Went from 13 UD to 6 OD from 4 lbs and only picked up 2 pounds.
            A spectator shot a vid of the best pass of the weekend.This was 6# boost.



            Hope it plays here.Tom and I are now friends for life!!!LOL

                    Al LOVES boost!!! It will put a smile on ANY face!:)
                    I regret NOT doing a blower 20 years sooner.This engine was 1st put together in 2008 with a pair of 750DPs that came off the tunnel ram.I was happy going low 10's and crusin like 2000 miles a year.
                    I went to Lou & Jim Vignogna.The Vignogna family was a racing family with several Hemi superstocks, the Bohemeth which was a wagon and several others.They got much ink back in those days with so many MOPAR rags still in print.

                        I know the blower "sucks" but I look at the scoop and just wonder if it restricts air flow. Looks kinda small?

                          I don't think the newer BDS restricts,AFR does not change.With 6 lbs of boost,air filters and exhaust out the back bumper it went 9.3 at almost 147 mph.

                              the scoop helps on the top end to get air into the carbs or injection . the proof is on long runs like saltflats or dry lakes events . even sprint cars on the small ovals run better with a scoop directing air . and for boost 30psi is what my bud runs his salt machine at . for miles , minites at wfo throttle . hemi-itis , is that a dryer's drive setup like my 383 ?

                              It's all BDS,bought it new from them,,,and they took advantage. That's all part of the learning curve.

                                  mine was a used drive i built from . did you ever have belt issues with that idler off the nose like that ? i've changed the blower bearing plate to a new dryer's type . having rudy petra r&p blowers work my setups and blowers . he has sold and built me a dozen or more blowers over time from 4-71's lots of 6-71's and my golden 8-71's . one 8 is a billet case , he says its good to 50 psi . thats a bit more then i'm going for , lol ;) . there based for my salt flats project . monster blower on small cubic inch motors makes a easy boost .
