70 Double Blown GTO
My 1970 GTO with two blowers. It's 474ci Pontiac engine with a 8-71 blower
on top of a 6-71 blower. This is from the last day of being double blown.
I'm going to one single 8-71 blower and going racing. The front clip was
removed to make it easier to work on. The reason for the double blowers was
not as a power enhancement like many ASSume. I stacked the blowers to have
a car that stood out in the crowd. Most Pro Street cars were starting to
blend together. If you seen one, you had seen them all. That wasn't the
case with this GTO. Al someone had to say was "The double blower GTO" and
people knew which car. I was told it couldn't be done, so I attempted it
and it worked. It stayed that way for almost 2 years. I knew a twin turbo setup would make more HP. I knew I could
have run a 14-71 blower and made more power. That wasn't the point. I
wanted to be different than the other cars in the parking lot, I did that
now it's time to ove on. For all those people who don't understand why,
I'm not going to try and explain it to you anymore. Get over it. I didn't
expect EVERYONE to love it. But you won't forget it.
This is our 24 cylinder Detroit that we are putting in a custom 359
Peterbilt. It will use an Allison Transmission, and the engine will be in
the front of the truck. We are starting off with 40 foot 4" X 14" rectangle
rails, not sure how long it will end up being.
Forced Induction - Supercharger vs. Turbo Charger
This video was made to describe in moderate detail the differences between
Superchargers and turbo Chargers, as well as describing the
components, advantages, and disadvantages to each. Complementing the
speaking track is a slideshow of related pictures and videos. I hope this
video helps some of you curious up and coming mechanics to better
understand methods of forced induction. Please comment maturely, and
Do Electric Superchargers Work?

Do Electric Superchargers Work? That is
a good question and the answer to that question is yes. A real electric Supercharger or electric turbocharger can work. However many people are
confused about how these electric Superchargers can add performance to your
naturally aspirated engine.
No to be confused with those cheap sheet metal inline fans placed inside a
rubber coupler but a real turbocharger
compressor being powered by a brushless motor.
Click on the link above to visit the B2B Blog and see the Dyno results for these inline
fans for yourself.
Because there are only scams being sold as electric Supercharger the only way to get a real performing
blower is to buid it yourself.

Self-contained ProCharger Superchargers
provide the industry's highest efficiency and coolest charge air
temperatures. This cool, dense air means more oxygen and fuel for your
engine, less exposure to detonation and more power. ProCharger Superchargers utilize natural centrifugal forces
to compress air and are not exposed to Exhaust-heat transfer.
As a result, they produce cooler air than other designs such as positive
displacement Superchargers and turbochargers. Designed and manufactured in the
USA, ProCharger models for both street/strip and hardcore racing feature
the highest step-up ratio, a patented, self-contained oiling design,
exclusive billet impellers, and precision billet gearcases for superior
rigidity, sealing and appearance.
In addition to higher efficiency and no heat transfer into the blower from
heated engine oil, ProCharger's mounting location also places the Supercharger in a fresh air stream, an additional
thermal advantage. No heat transfer from an Exhaust interface, nor heat transfer from engine
top mounting. Self-contained oiling and this mounting location, together
with high efficiency centrifugal compression, combine to produce the
coolest operating and charge air temperatures.
This high efficiency design also results in optimized fuel economy. With a
unique combination of durability and high performance, with years of proven
performance on the street and championship-winning performance on the
track, self-contained ProChargers are the ultimate power adder.
