    Default 1500hp 428 SB Ford - Twin Turbo - impressive

    This is impressive, even for a Ford. The torque this thing makes is amazing.

    How do you think the numbers would compare with the single Vortex blower on the same motor?

    Build-for-build and boost-for-boost, the turbo motor would have a handful of hp more than the supercharged version. Of course, nothing is free, so turbos do require "some" hp to run them - but not much. A centrifugal supercharger would still require crankshaft hp to turn it and make boost.

    Therefore, it would still be attainable with the belt charger, but would require additional PSI of boost to overcome the parasitic hp loss.

    Nelson sure can tune an EFI TT setup. A/F ratios were spot-on. Turn-key and idles like a stocker.

    That really shows that a turbo/efi 427 CI small block is all that would ever be needed for an open dragboat. Less weight than a BBC and it would have multi fuel capability too.

    The mirror image turbo's looked nice but I bet the cost was significant.
    Off the shelf cheap diesel units make more sense to me and would be easily available.

    Nelson does a real top quality job.
