    Re: blower

    I did just that. Put a 6-71 on a stock 396 and completely disintegrated every barring on the rods. If your going to build a blower motor grab your wallet and build the bottom end bullet prof. Start with a good forged crank don't cheap out on the rods either,and a good set of forged pistons. Your rotating assembly has to be able to take the pain. Everything is different with a good blower motor my best advice to you is, do your home work if your going to do it yourself. I would highly suggest taking your motor to a recommended shop and have them build the bottom end for you. Not sure where your at but Grose racing engines (in Lodi) builds a great blower motor.
    Ever wonder why boogers only smell after you pick em?

      thanks bwurst for the info, what i want to do is run my 454 this year (me and my dad built) and get a blower next winter. Im into building motors. definetly not a pro but my dads pretty good. i couldnt work on motors for a living but i could go all day on mine im going to take my time and do it right. Plus i couldnt afford the motor and the labor
      So its part im going to do this to my motor and part id just love to know how to blow a motor. So any and all info i can get will be appreciated. im sure its good info for this site too. thanks again bwurst

          Milpitas every thing is relevant here , I ran a Small Weiand 171 blower on a bone stock Hardin marine BBC for several seasons (cast pistons and iron crank etc) 8.5 to 1 rec port heads single 850 DF DP and HEI ignition That motor had no less than a few hard seasons on it before and is about to go into a customer project mini cruiser as a used motor N/A deal , The BBC I'm refering to powered my Bahner 18 to 84 plus @CFW The key is/was to match components Both my current boats are Blown, My Cruiser is a Gen 5 BBC Weiand 256 Marine Blower, Forged JE Blower pistons , Eagle H beam rods and steel crank , My Tunnel Hull is similar But has an 871 Both motors are 454's both have 9.25 to 1 compression and both make around 10 lbs of boost Both Motors have Gen 5 Marine rec port heads the Cruiser has a Comp Blower cam the Tunnel has a Big solid Herbert roller deal The Cranks are double keyed and Both motors are balanced The Cruiser has a 1050 boost referenced Dominator and the has a pair of QFT special built 750 DFDP's As you see not unlike NOS you can take advantage of both ends of the spectrum One of the critiacl factors is fuel (I run 110 leaded race gas ) and timing , neither of my boats run more than about 27 degrees total Hope some of this helps , more info if you need it or have questions Tom
