    Question 14-71 on a 468 BBC

    I finally bit the bullet and picked up a 14-71 huffer with an intercooler. I am curious to hear about some info from you guys with past experiences.
    What kind of hp are these babies capable of making?
    What kind of special mods do you guys perform to the block and heads?

    little extra on the ring end gap, Cometic head gaskets, little extra on the valve guide clearance, and inconel exhaust valves. You probly don't need the intercooler with the 1471, but would be handy for an 871 or smaller, only cause you need to spin them faster.

    Congrats Mike!!!! That's a whole lotta blower and I'm sure you're gonna love it. You don't mess around do you? From a 177 to a 14-71......wow

    PM George (GFinishline) for ideas on how to set one up on there.

    First off, are you running gas or alcohol? Second, that little 468 is going to have a hell of a time turning that 14-71.

    Why would the 468 have so much trouble turning it? With such a big blower, wouldn't he be under driving it a bit for the boost he needs, that it would be easier to turn? Also, as slow as it would turn, could he run pump gas without an inter cooler? I know nothing about blowers. Just asking.
