I do have 76cc cast heads 1.72/1.50 valves. But then......
will the valves be large enough for a blown motor. Mmmmm.
whats you thoughts?
I'm of the opinion that most everyone misinterprets what is necessary to make a blower motor work. For a street motor with up to 6 lbs of boost, you don't need a double-throwdown camshaft and sewer-pipe heads. The blower will compensate for a plethora of errors and still make good power (25%-40% increase over stock) at street rpm's, on cast iron exhaust manifolds and stock head gaskets. Just as in the remainder of life, there are varying degrees of success, based on the combination of parts used.
