    Default Torn on blowers

    Well, I sold my 10. It was a good piece, but set up for gas, so was limited in max output.
    I was convinced I was going to get a Blower Shop 10. The look great! Will make plenty of boose. (std top and bottom opening)
    Well, I have been looking... the Kobelco pieces are nice. Obviously good. Many out there. They are black, though. UGLY
    14's... tons out there used.
    I was WANTING to stay with my low profile crank trigger dist. The Blower Shop thinks their 10 will hit it, so change to crab cap. Well, if I am going to change to crab cap... why not get a used 14? TONS out there cheap.
    So, my dilema is... WTF? Blower shop... looks great, will fill the bill. Hard to find used. So, 3500 ish. Used Kobelco with K8 rotors fresh strips 3200. Used 14s under 2g all day.

    Your 10 cleared you dizzy? Let me guess. It was a Mooneyham or a Littlefield.

    Well, it was a Mooneyham. Most 10's won't clear the dist? Shows what I know. I have used Moooneyham or Littlefield, so I assumed they all cleared.
    I have about 4.5" from back stud to dist. cap.
    Oh, I also could throw on an indy intake, but then it goes to queer belt length stuff.

    I don't know what distributor you have, but if it is low profile and the Blowershop 10 may hit, I assume it would be with their standard manifold.

    Ask them about using an Indy manifold, which they sell. It is a couple of inches higher and looks good.

    I use one of their 10-14's with a crab distributor and the Indy manifold and have lots of room above it. I can even get the distributor out without removing the blower.

    There's something about this that just doesn't look right.

    I have a BDS competition manifold (I think). My dist is the crank trigger dist with the HEI style terminals. Bigger diameter than standard dist.
    I love the indy $tuff.
    The blower shop thinks his 10 will hit. With a crab cap dist the blower will go over the top of the dist. I have crank trigger, so I am just moving the spark.
    Problem with indy manifold is I have pulleys for my std height manifold. Add 2", then belt length has to change, or a whole bunch of pulleys to buy. I think I can do 97 to 118 ish total tooth count now.

    Let's see, your boat was dialed well enough to win SITC. Runs the number easily, so what to do in the off season? Let's dick with it!!! IMHO, bling matters and you can not beat the blower shop billet cases for looks. Not to mention they work pretty well too.
    So are you wanting to run faster than 8.0's? Unless you plan on trying to run a lot faster than 8.0, a Blower Shop 8-71 set up for alcohol would more than handle your needs and would clear your distributor too.
    Tony's 470 had a Blower Shop 8 and it easily ran the number at Phoenix with a LOT left over in my flat. Plus it cleared a MSD12 Pro Mag. Something to consider...

    A Mooneyham and Littlefield on a Mooneyham or Littlefield manifold, or copy like the BDS comp manifold, will clear the dizzy with a ten. The manifold sits the blower a little further forward than other type mainfolds. But the blower is different as well.
    Most blowers add the additional length of the blowers over 6-71 all in to the rear. The Mooneyham, and Littlefield blowers added the first inch from 6-71 to 8-71 evenly front to rear. They almost look like 6s because they are because they don't have the look of the additional inch in the rear. So a Mooneyham and Littlefield are about 1/2" shorter on the rear than most others as the sizes go up from th 8. I would think if you keep the same manifold, it would work because the diference i only about a 1/2 if I amnot mistaken.

    TBS should be able to give you the distance a hold down bolt to the rear cover so you can check. Just make sure which hold down hole they give you, because the pattern is staggered from on side to the other.

    Put an Indy plus a chiller on it and go right over the top of the dizzy
