prumora1 methanol at 99.9% pure from alky is fuel of choice

camaroman7d Is this a street car? What type of fuel do you plan to run? An 8-71 on a 572ci engine and trying to make 12 to 15lbs of boost, you will need decent fuel.

No need to O-ring the heads or block. A MLS gasket will handle double that boost level. You may want to talk to a few other engine builders that have played with forced induction in the last 15 years. Unless this is a very high boost alcohol deal there is really no need to O-ring it.

ap72 Pretty standard for high boost. May be a little overkill, may not.

572 with 8:71

I would love to post pics but the engine is in process of being built, that's why im getting info now,

I spoke to a local builder but not a big supercharger kind of person, but he suggested to "O" ring the block with a high quality head gasket with an acceptance grove in the heads.

If you are going to under drive the blower then no need to o-ring,The cr will be under 14/1 and a good race gasket will work.Is you block,heads prepped for MLS gasket?

vinniekq2 Are you building a tall deck or standard deck engine? (curious) a couple turbos would be nice and easier to hide

68NovaSS 15 pounds of boost huh? What's your SCR? Even as low as 8.5:1, you realize your effective c.r. will be 17.8:1? You won't do it on 92 pump gas, even with meth injection you'd be pushing it.

To make 12.1 pounds of boost in a 540 motor you would need to overdrive an 8-71 30%, I'd estimate a 572 will require at least 40% overdriven to get 15 pounds. 1:1 in a 540 will make 6 pounds.

On a 572 I don't think it will make 12# of boost underdriven.

killeratrod sure would like to see your motor and blower combo. post some pictures!

techinspector1 Here's the scoop on copper gaskets used with o-rings....
Copper Gasket Tech
Counsel with your blower supplier guy about the need for o-rings.

68NovaSS Ring style head gasket? If you're referring to "O" ringing the block, which is not part of a head gasket, yes. Unless you're going to be running an obscene amount of boost, why do that?
