How do you get an engine running like this?


Recommended Posts

Blower surge is the term for it. Not uncommon in engines of this type. Can be fixed with tuning tricks but for it's intended purpose(strip), many don't bother as it's usually considered par for the course.

Aha! A search on "blower surge" brings up http://www.enginelabs.com/news/tech-quickie-cool-or-not-what-is-blower-surge/ which explains a bit and also has some cool examples. The first video is a bit extreme but the Chevelle sounds very nice I think.

Money... Lots and lots of money



Definitely blower surge though, overlap in the cam plus boost makes the manifold pressure do weird things.


edit- looks like I'm watching youtube videos of blower surge and 300+ duration cams for the rest of the night.. thanks alot.

most blower surge can be handled by cracking the butterfly a little to up the idle. I'm not real sure the big fascination with blower surge, we don't have it when nitro is in the tank.
