  1. Do it. It will love you for it - lol! I have 190,000 miles on mine and have a 2.8 pulley on it. Been a best of 12.20 at 110 with it at 5650 (I'm almost 300lbs & all of my stereo equip, etc). Stock wheels, tailgate, etc. Been an amazing daily driver for me. Good tune is where its at. Good luck! I have a question (and instead of a new topic, I figured I ask here because this kinda falls in line with mine) I want to put a smaller pully on my truck, running a 3.3" pully now on my Radix MP112, I'd like to drop to a 3.0" or a 2.9" I'll be running a Snow meth kit soon, but was wondering if the motor would take the added PSI? one guy at work says it'll blow my motor to pieces. I have almost 100,000 miles on my motor now. you guys are my fall back becasue most of you have delt with these issues. also what is the price of that spacer? I've seen photos and I like them alot, and want to get one when I upgrade the throttle body *Nevermind, saw the price of the spacer above, lol*
  2. Definitely interested in bigger blower but building 2 mustangs so money isn't there for a lot of extras. Especially for daily driver.
  3. Good points and well taken. I've thought about swapping a 6.2 in there instead (found one for $900 more) but obviously square port and would be slow until I add a blower - lol. Don't want a big converter is what I mean by slow.
  4. I hear u but I already have this blower. Just looking to maximize this combo right now. It's been great as a fast daily driver. I mean it literally is like stock (idle, mileage, etc) until u step on it. Tows like crazy, merges with traffic with crazy minimal throttle input, etc. Kind of hard to believe to be honest. Some day, I may step up to a 1900 or 2300. He'll, maybe even a turbo. Part of the appeal of my combo is the minimal investment I have and reliability. Well other then trans lol!
  5. I didn't mention in this post but I'm putting in a 38,000 mile LQ9 which is the reason I'm looking at different cams. Thx.
  6. I should also mention that I've been 12.20 at 110 with 1.7 sixty foot. This was with 78mm tb, stock mechanical fan, flowmasters and no meth. Added Magnaflows, 90mm tb/j-tube, electric fans and meth inj but haven't been able to best my previous bests. Have matched the times but in hotter weather. I feel it would drop in the teens given a nice cold day but hard to say as the motor was probably pretty tired at 190,000
  7. I'm already supercharged. Radix with 2.8 pulley, 190,000 long block, GT2/3 cam, Volant CAI, long tubes, true dual 3" exhaust, 2800 stall circle D triple disc converter, etc This cam is just stock. Idles stock. Gets stock fuel economy and drives like stock. At least until u step on it ;-) I don't mind a slightly rougher idle but I do want to retain most of my drive ability and improve my performance at the same time.
  8. I've been very happy with my GT2/3 cam, but do feel it is limiting me a little. Krambo had posted up in another thread where he had tuned and helped build a friends truck and the best they could run with it was a 12.0x vs his high 11's. Only difference being that truck had a GT2/3 cam vs his SLP cam (.559/.566 --- 216/222 --- 115). He said the 1/8 mile increments were consistently better on his truck. I've been looking at these cams below----Comp recommended the 2nd one. Thoughts? http://www.compcams.com/Company/CC/cam-specs/Details.aspx?csid=1399&sb=0 http://www.compcams.com/Company/CC/cam-specs/Details.aspx?csid=1426&sb=0 These cams are part of the LSR line and require dual springs and they aren't cheap.... Also, considered something a little more mild like: http://www.compcams.com/Company/CC/cam-specs/Details.aspx?csid=1085&sb=2 http://www.compcams.com/Company/CC/cam-specs/Details.aspx?csid=1086&sb=2 Thoughts?
  9. Ok, I think everyone would agree that 6.0 is about the biggest this blower can handle. A radix just isn't a good match for a 408. My question is: If a camshaft helps a radix combo, wouldn't ported or better cylinder heads help also? I'm at 190,000 miles and am replacing my motor with a 38,000 mile LQ9. I want to put better rod bolts in it and a better cam. I really want to get this truck in the 11's bad. In my my mind porting the heads would help this cause, but some say no. So, if a cam helps, why wouldn't a ported cylinder head help?
  10. Sorry about that. Looks like he probably found or didn't find what he needed 3 or 4 months ago. I pm'd the one guy about an engine, but sometimes people don't get the pms right away. So since most people have their settings setup to notify them on threads they have been active in, I figured I'd post up. Sorry, didn't see the harm in this case.
  11. Anyone run a big cube/blower combo out there? Getting ready to build a new motor and trying to nail down combo. Thanks.
