    has anyone installed any one of these. Im thinking bout getting one down the road just for that little bit of boost and looks. could anyone tell alot of a difference with it and what you done to the motor. i know they bolt up to a stock motor fine and can make about 100 more horse with 4 pounds of boost

    I've got a B&M 162 blower on mine, and they do pack a punch. They are not as efficient in the higher rpm b/c they will create heat, but you can run them on a stock motor keeping the boost to around 5lbs and if you want more then you will want to get better bottom end parts. If your thinking on going with a 142 or 144 you may aswell go with a 177. Also the one thing i love about these small ones is you dont hear them driving around and no-one knows it's there until your at WOT.
    I say go for it, you wont regret it. easy to tune and install.

    I agree with bowtie81 if you do it get the bigger one. I think there is a 250 too, its prolly the largest one set up for a single carb, but i'm not sure how available they are.

    myself as well went with tthe 177, dont like the look of the 671, away running mine at 10 pounds but on a very efficient engine(on a stock would be about 12-13 psi), running an air to water intercooler to chill things down, nitrous dont hurt either...

    thanks, mines a little on the extreme side I know.. a 177 will live on a stock engine as long as your conservative, meaning keep the boost down 5 psi, dont over rev her, had my 177 on a bascially stock engine(bottom end) anyway for 2 years and was fine, play her safe and you will be fine

    ok that works, thats why i thought about going with a 142 or a 144 because im just wanting that little more power and i know they dont put to much boost out and i know i could play it safe with them because i thought maybe a 177 would be to big but i guess it wouldnt be
