Might this be the answer to your bazaar criptic post ,You'll not get more then about a extra 125 hp ( some 5 to 6 psi of boost) out of that blower if that covers your needs?

Can someone loan me a Rosetta Stone for this string of post please or am I missing the fact that the motor has met its demise?

I so want to say...get a real blower. Ok. I did it. I feel cleansed now.
It has been done and I suspect Dyer Blowers has the answer.

If you do not already own the 144 blower start with a bigger better blower. X2 if you want more than 450 HP.

If I had a Olds 350 sb and the Offy dual quad manifold for that and wanted to supercharge it I'd use a TorqStorm blower and use 2 edelbrock 750 cfm carbs .
Carbs can be in a carb box.
Best street strip results if the engine has a low compression ratio.

Yup bolt the blower onto a 560 HP 358.

You'll get 550 HP.

Seriously a 177 Weiand or the 192 billet TBS blower both
Achieve that power level and more on a 358 very nicely.

The 142-144 blower is going to peak out about 480 HP on a high cr high blower drive ratio, maxed out 358.
Methanol or water injection.

It is very good in the 450-460 HP range.

Ok, this has to be a street machine.
Consider this..a boosted engine that makes 400 HP on the street can kill you.
How much over that is really useful in a traction limited application?
Any supercharged engine is a blast.
My point is do what you want regardless of what HP it may or may not make here on the internet.
If there is no dyno in your town it can be rated at whatever HP you choose. :wink:
