Which brand AFR guage do I need to buy to get my 383 weiand 671 blower 2-750 holley's tuned up ?

Take it back to where you had it built and have them do it.

That's a GREAT idea, but more sarcastic than realistic...

Several of us are using the Innovate system, having the bung welded isn't a big thing, it just has to be off the bottom of the header to avoid standing moisture, bungs are included in their kits. If you didn't need full time monitoring, Innovate also has clamp on tailpipe pickups.

I don't know why not to use synthetic, unless there's a need for more ZDDP protection, extreme cam lift, etc. I don't use synthetics in my blown Nova, it's full roller, and just my preference.

Why don't you find and work wth a prefessional builder /tuner that does these Roots supercharged motors in your local area.?

If you really have to ask these questions (lack of experience)
This is probabily your best bet.
learning to tune correctly takes time and patience.
You have learn to walk before you run.
You do not want to cut your teeth on a expensive supercharged motor.

When bad things happen, they happen much faster and more violently on a supercharged motor. $$$$$$$$$$$$

You will probabily save money in the end by paying a good local pro to get it dialed in.

Paying a pro to Sort out the tuneup on a engine dyno is invaluable. You catch and avoid a lot of costly issues.

I do a lot lot lot of my own stuff but have been doing this for years and years.

you need to go easy on the tuneup for on street driving with pump gas.
its has its limits.

Glad you caught the sarcasm. As F-Bird posted, this guy is in way over his head on this car. I'll just leave it at that.

He's on a bit of a learning curve with boost, but not a noob to performance motors by a long shot, he's an ex unlimited outboard racer, built outboard motors spraying NOS at over 12k rpm's. I don't say that to impress you or anyone else, but I think your remark was short sided and should have been worded differently. You've run off more than one new member with your sarcasm and assuming when a poster doesn't word his entry just right.
