    Default ? 502,496,468,454 or 427 blower motor

Im looking to build two motors, both for the lake and looking to have them as relaiabale as possibale. The 14-71 I know will have to be under driven.I have herd alot of diferent sugestions on 502 vers the 496 for the 14-71, but I would like to get some more inpute on the best rout. If anybody can help, please let me know. Thanks

    A 14:71 on a 509 is just overkill for a pleasure setup. It takes a lot of power to spin a 14 then underdriving it to get low boost levels can cause other problems, but only if you spin it very slow. You should build a 540, 572, or 600 for that 14:71 even if its for pleasure use. I think it would be a better combo.

    Ya but a 540 is a lot of rotational mass and remember it's bored from the same block as a 396 . I vote 454 or 496.

    Someone post up the different Gen #'s and the standered Cubic inche displacement that goes along with them. I can't seem to find this?

    Runing gas with intercooler. I have been tolde alky would be easyer on the motor but Im not wanting to fuel up that often and I herd it would be more maintance. Also wondering how big of carbs I would have to use?
    Ass far as cave going blown, he just finished his before me. Iev had the blower, just had to finde the boat. Now I can figure out what motor to build. I dont plan on useing the 14-71 to its full potential, its more so for the shock facktor of its size. Trying figure if Im waisting time with such a big blower. Im looking for about 900 to 1000 ponies on gas blowen with intercooler wether its the 14-71 or smaller.

    usuually if your going blown, over .060 on a gm block, I would have the block sonic checked. the blocks vary quite a bit, but I would be skeptical of building at .125 over. LIke said earlier, the amount of powre required to spin a 14-71, far outways the boost youll be looking for in low boost application, therefore too big.. 1000hp on pump gas, I feel youll need to go 540 at least, 600 ci would be better, to get plenty of power w/low octane. carb sizes really depend on the boat size,gears,cubic inch,boost/overdrive,rpm,etc..Good Luck..

    I agree on the 540 or bigger suggestion. I started with the same 1000hp goal and the big cubes make it much easier. And if you have E85 in your area you won't need an intercooler. I just got my 540 done and it turned out stronger than I had hoped with a puny little 871. I can just imagine what it would do with a big ole 14 on there

    Cool deal so how much boost were you able to run with the E85 with only 8.3:1 compression. I figured since methanol likes 11.5:1 and ethanol has similar properties to methanol I figured you might go 10-10.5:1 compression.
