Some talk of SBC cranks breaking from the extra stress of the blower belts

GMPP 383 shortblock broken by blower stress on the front snout-this is teh same shortblock as is used on the ZZ383 and HT383 engines http://www.pacificp.com/forum/viewtopic ... ight=snout


For the price of a ZZ383, you could do a lot with a GEN 3 swap.

I like you Impala SS rims, 1st pic that I can remember seeing them on a rcsb.

I am surprised that you blowing up 305's, as the spider :should" be able to fuel the smaller displacement easier than the 350 engine. Does that blower kit use an FMU and extra injectors to supply fuel?

I would say do a 6.0 and don't look back. From there you could go FI with a TVS2300 or maybe reclock your Vortech as well as get a new mounting bracket to reuse the blower.

If I recall, the Vortech kit uses an FMU like the ProCharger kits do.

I just talked to Lyndon Wester of Wester's Garage, and he said you could send him your PCM. he just did a 1996 L31 with a set of his Blackwidow injector sets. He had to pull fuel out of the calibration so he is confident that his poppets are flowing enough fuel. He did mention that they were having isues withteh intank pump.

I definitely want to keep the GEN1 Style engine in my truck. I am not a fan of the new engines. A well built 350 is bullet proof and they have a great background. They are also super easy to get parts for. I also want the marine intake because when you boost the stock plastic plenum it looks like it wants to explode. What exactly is a FMU and no I dosint have different injectors in it.
