    B&M

    They can make some horsepower and are marine legal. A little bit more saftey with the serpentine belt (or so I am told). MY engine guy had one on his 540 but switched to a BS model. Havent heard any complaints except for the finding parts....Although I think TBS has picked up the slack on that end. I was going to put one on but ran across a great deal on a new/used BS 6-71, besides thats what i really wanted anyways. Just my 2 cents....

    Just my experience.

    Bad polish and clearance on the Weiand. That being said I've been running one on my 19 for about 5-6 years with no problems, currently pushing about 11#'s at 13 over with an 8 on a 500CI.

    go with blower shop, they're marine stuff is hard annodized and all they're rotors are coated in teflon on all they're superchargers. That is an option with most companies, i.e. wieand, bds, etc. and cost extra. Plus they, in my opinion, are the best bang for the buck.

    Looks like I'm not the only one that has Blower fever.

    Call these guys and order it from them http://www.chiefengines.com/ They were the best price I could find when I bought mine. I had it will called at the blower shop and did'nt have to pay shipping and since I bought it out of state I did'nt pay sales tax either. If your going to do a 8-71 the billet cases from the blower shop are very nice.

    Call the Blower Shop and ask for Eric Lyon. They are the best in my opinion. Eric will get you all set up and they are in So cal. Tell him I sent you and it may save you some $$. Then again, it may add some$$
