The VR4 is a ball drive blower like the SN series Paxton sells,Just the VR4 was considered the race version back when it came out..

They are decent blowers,we have a customer with one on a fox body stang and with basic pieces "dart heads,small cam,edelbrock EFI intake,ect"and no port work on his 302 he has went [email protected],so they move some air..

Thanks for the help steve! The guy who owns the car told me that it went [email protected] (? mph)i just never heard of that blower at all, do they require the same maintence as the rest of the Paxton blowers or are they different?

The ball drives have self contained oil setup which has to be changed every 3k miles or so.

I had a 91 with an sn-89 (ball bearing). The first blower lasted 90k before the first rebuild was required, the 2nd went out at 150k or so, 2nd time around had some time with a smaller pulley both under my ownership (about a month) and under the new owners care (prob 3-4 months).
