    I have a 68 Cuda 4 speed I am building , its a driver mild build
    What do you guys think of the Torque storm unit , thinking of 5 psi boost tops 450 hp
    drive it on the highway , take a trips kind of car .
    I have fire breathing N/A dragons and all the issues that come with driving them long distance or getting stuck in traffic and having to idle for long periods , but looking to build a driver this time, fun

    I used to live in Lockport right across from St.Dennis catholic school on Washington street. At the time had a 68 formula S cuda 340 4-speed. Early nineties

    A friend of mine has a TorqueStorm on his 68 Fastback 340 stroker engine. He loves it and drives it everyday during the summer months.

      That’s the beauty of forced induction. You don’t have to use a big cam. Go for it.

        THis is why I like big block A-bodies. Milder at any given HP level.

        450hp in an Abody is plenty to have fun with and is capable of cracking into the 11's and forced induction will defineily make it a milder, more street freindly engine regardless of displacement.

        Is the SC you are looking at a roots type, or a centrifugal?

        TS's are centrifugal...gear operated snails. You could get the geared snail on Alibaba for $180 last year but they are long gone.

            In race only trim I would agree with you. Dusters are generally heavy. My 73 is 3480

              Do we need to just imagine "what" engine you have?

                Engine Masters installed one on a /6, did pretty good, made some good horsepower.

                Wasn't that the one they blew a head gasket on, or am I thinking about something else?

                I remember that then. It did make good power. You'da thought they'd put a real head gasket on it, like Cometic or some such. If I had the extra cash, I'd do it to my next build, as if I ran a thick head gasket, I could get compression to 8.7. I don't think that'd be too high for a blower.

                  Yes it did, I was hoping they would replace the gasket and try again.

                  True, but the heavy bumper guards were removed, added fiberglass hood, frame connectors and sound deadener.

                          I love my Torqstorm supercharger. I have a 360 magnum crate motor from Mopar performance division purchased in 2000. I put the supercharger on and it really added some extra pulling through all the gears. No cam change although I am going for aluminum heads to get a little more air going…lol 510E6F7B-CF9B-489F-B886-66BAF1E6221A.jpeg
