Engine build need help

Hello brilliant engine builder I need some help!
This is what I have: stock 350 block, mutha thumpers cam, dart iron eagle 200cc 2.05 valve 64cc heads, holly 850dp, 4:10 rear gears, built turbo 350, edelbrock rpm air gap intake, msd 6al,msd dizzy, blaster 2 coil, in a full body 79 Camaro I want to install a b&m 177 blower!? Of coarse I can do it but is it practical to just bolt on and run it or what will I need to do? Any idea of horse power? Block has about 70k miles its pretty fresh thanks guys!!

If it has stock rods, Id be worried about snapping one. But it depends on how you use it, make sure your comfortable with carb tuning, because you cant just slap a blower on and run it, its gotta be tuned right.

with a thumr cam you'll need some high stall, also the carb will have to be modified to a blow through carb if its going on that blower, if not a 850 dp will be a little big for a 350, probably pretty lazy on bottom end.

to me it sounds like your not doing your homework and reading up on what your trying to do, with everything you have may cost you horsepower instead of gaining.

I have a 2500 or 2800 stall converter can't remember now but the car as it sits is pretty quick with no hesitation it will eat the tires off in first and second off the break petal I am just wondering if I should put the supercharger on or what I should do to get maximum potential out of what I have! And it's a mutha thumper cam, blower has a blow threw carb already tuned for up to 8psi

how many horses do you think it has now?how much boost are you willing to try?are your ring gaps adequate? what is your current static CR.

850 is a good size carb for racing and hot street
