    no your are not the first guy to ever build a blower motor, but NOBODY could possibly answer this question without a whole lot more info, like your entire engine combo. First guess is that 2 1250 dominators should be plenty

    Like I said this is my first blower motor so anything I can answer to help you answer me would be great. I just know about n/a and blow through turbo setups. Thanks Paul

    Holly's. What do you plan on doing with your cotage boat? It would be best to buy carbs specifically build for a blower.

    What blower is it? PSI, Blower Shop??? V- Drive, Jet, Direct Drive or IO?
    You can pick up a combo set up with linkage and carbs on Ebay or from any of the HP sites.

    good luck

    Either one of these carburetors would be a good choice;
    http://www.holley.com/0-80576S.asp
    $709.79 ea.
    http://www.holley.com/0-80577S.asp
    $738.43
    For a lake deal I'd get the smaller ones. For an all out race prepped engine I'd use the larger. If you get more serious than this, go to Gary Williams Custom Works. He's expensive, but knows his $$it on blown jet motors.

    I'm running 750 Dominators on my 468. Cool thing about the 750 doms is that I can change the boosters and turn them into 1050's if I ever need to go bigger.

That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"
