Don't hate me Vance... I had a what if moment while a buddy and I were standing in the shop last night BS'ing after I runnered up yesterday at Sallisaw in a Bracket Race in Judgment (cut a .500, .503, and a .512 in eliminations) What if we put the Blower motor over in Judgment to see what it can really do? A car with a rear strong enough, a better fuel system, has a much stronger Trans and Driveshaft and go's down a drag strip like it is on rails... what if...

Hey man, they're your blowers. I respect whatever you do with your cars. I wish I had your problem, deciding which GTO to run and which blower to use !

I love the look of the roots type blowers. They sound so awesome with that whine they make.

Good luck on your combos this year Johnny.

Was messing around last night in the shop and the wife wanted to see the car run so I fired it up and let it idle about 5 minutes until everything was up to temp. I then rapped it a couple of times and when I did the idler pulley bracket snapped and the belt went loose "brickwall"I called the Blower guy Gary and he said he kept em in stock and had 2 styles with one being Heavy Duty - I told him to send me the heavy duty. I can hardly wait to get this deal to the track...

That is what I told the wife...

I was surprised when I found out it was only a $50 part :shock:Usually anything that has to do with this deal starts at $150 :wilting
