    Anybody here run a blower on a 470RB? I was going the tunnel ram route on some 240 Trickflows but now I am thinking... hmmm... I am at 10.5:1 compression which would be perfect for methanol. The issue I have is the stock block! Not sure I could detune it enough to keep from splitting it. NOT BUILDING A RACECAR although it does have RMVB 727 and 4000 8 inch converter, Dana 60 with 4.10 gears and CalTracs. Just a radical street car. Any setups you would care to share?

      I've got a somewhat stranded 496ci blower motor on the stand that I've been building over the years.
      No real planning was involved, just using the parts I luckily ended up with over time. Street use mainly.
      Only the cam has been chosen by Dwayne Porter from PHR.

      I think I would worry a bit about the 4000 stall when you have enough torque to reverse spin a small planet at lower rpms.

      I like using methanol as more of a safety measure. At 10.5:1 any hiccup at all in the meth system while under boost and you're toast.

      Wondering how hard and how often he really hammers it for all its worth. I wouldn't think it would last a season in a dragrace car .
      idle to 7000 and hold it for 8-10 seconds every time u start it ??????????
