Im wanting to put a blower on a stock big block. what all do i need to change? what would be a good blower for the street?
What he said. Lot out there just need to do a little digging. As read up on everything you can on them. It is not like doing a stock motor.If you look on yellow bullet or racing junk you could find a new d1sc pro charger for like $2800. Go to doug herbert and get a decent came for $200, decent forged pistons for $550ish, blow through demon carb for like $565, aeromotive fuel system for around $600ish, boost guage for $45.00 these are just off the top of my head. The best blown motors are built for a blower from the block up though
For a limited boost application there's no need to worry about changing pistons unless your compression is too high. Your cam will probably suffice as well.Im wanting to put a blower on a stock big block. what all do i need to change? what would be a good blower for the street?
x2, i have called BDS many times and have gotten a lot of really good info for the build up my dad and i are doing for his 55 bel-air.For a limited boost application there's no need to worry about changing pistons unless your compression is too high. Your cam will probably suffice as well.
At higher boost levels there will be a whole 'nuther list of concerns (different pistons, wider ring gaps, different ring materials, double keyways on the crank, different cam timing, crank support, etc...)...
I'd suggest calling Craig @ BDS. They sell complete systems from mild-to-wild.:yes: Looks-to-cooks.:devil: However you want to say it.
