I saw an old T-bucet hot rod ata car show with dual 10-71 blowers on a chevy small block... everything was polished or chromed.. a complete waste of money, but it did look big, shiney, and was loud as hell. For flames just get a cam with a LOT of overlap, run your carb way too rich... it washes out the cylinder walls and is a good way to ruin an engine, but it will shoot flames.

Apparently someone doesn't know much about motors, or anything.

Build or get yourself a small block Chevy, and buy a tunnelram kit from summit.

Totally not practical but... who cares...IT'S BIG...

?????
a blower setup on a motor is approx $4000.....to "look really big"

a blower with virtually no belt overdriving gearing makes no HP....it's not forcing any air into the motor.......a 300hp motor would still be 300hp with a no overdrive blower...

build just a blower shell...mount it on top of a normal carb and intake manifold?
build some big valve covers?

to make flames:

he's probably seeing the huge nitromethane funny cars and Dragsters on TV with the huge engines, with huge blowers, spitting flames at night. what he dosen't know, is the nitromethane is what makes those flames, and you CAN'T run nitromethane on the street.

Umm, red, that's not exactly true. I'm running a 6-71 at 1:1 with dual quads on a moderately built SBC. My boost gauge sez at idle I have about 2" of vacuum, which means the blower is adding some boost, since normal vacuum should be somewhere above 16" (yes, I know the cam timing affects vacuum). At 2000 rpm the boost gauge shows a positive 2# of boost. At 3000 rpm it shows about 4#. At 5000 I'm up to 7# of boost. I gotta believe 7# of boost is adding one or two horsepower at the rear wheels.

you might be getting somthing, but. it's taking 20% of your power just to run the blower, so your only adding what the blower is actully taking away. in the end you end up with about 0 hp added. 6 PSI is approx 30% increase in power with forced induction. even if you figure 10% of 400 hp, is only a 40hp increase.
