Re: 871 Supercharger Street set-up when trans is in overdrive?!?
I am running a small 144 blower on a .060 over 400 small block in my '65 chevy van. Smaller blower, but same general concept. With a roots blower, it is only making boost when the throttle is open. During cruise on the freeway, the throttle blades are only open just a slight bit, so you are not cruising in boost. The blower is simply going along for the ride, not in boost, and the engine is pretty much acting normally until you put your foot down, then it will go into boost. As long as you are simply cruising with light throttle, the engine is actually pulling a vacuum like normal. This is why superchargers are so steerable, because the boost is there when you put your foot down, but during light throttle periods, your engine acts normally.
The important thing here is that you ask me what kind of car I've got. "I've got a BITCHIN' CAMARO"
