Blower Update


Vadim just called with great news.

He is weeks away form finishing up his first batch of 3rd Gen blower kits.

Est. cost less than $3500.

Cost to 1st ten buyers $3150 or less.

Vadim is having a custom unit, 1/2 a turbo, that bolts onto the alt. It doesn't get hot and needs no oil line.

He plans to run 5-6 PSI boost to the MAF. Blower is designed to emphasize low end not peak power.

The plans do not call for a chip but do call for relocating the MAF and fuel enrichment device.

Est. labor is 3-4 hrs, (for Vadim) - maybe a weekend job for someone like me. ;-)

Call 714 894 8415, (SHO SHOP)
or FAX 714 894 8901

BTW Vadim expects a a 65-80 HP improvement at the wheel.  With most of the benefit where we need it the most, down low. This should help ET's and 0-60 a lot.

Blower update,

I recently downloaded a better version of Desktop Dyno that gives me much more accurate gross HP numbers.

Now 235 Gross HP equates to about 189 HP on a chassis dyno indicating almost 20% loss. I recently looked up the information I got from Vadim at the SHO Shop who mentioned 5-6 psi boost and 65-80 hp increase with an intentional emphasis on low end torque.

I plugged 5 psi boost into my Desktop Dyno program and this is what it told me.

Now 80% of 367 hp is 296 Hp at the wheel which is about what Vadim mentioned. Desktop drag strip (also a new version) indicates an ET change from 15.78 at 89.2 stock to 12.864 at 109.6 mph.

I know all this is on the design stage and talking 12ís and SHOing 12ís are two different things. Still it has a lot of promise, low-mid 13ís is still quick to my kind of thinkiní
