Turbo + SuperCharged 347
So I know I'm fixing to open up a can of works here I know. First let me say, I'm a person that DOESNT race or anything related. I build cars to attend cruise-ins and pretty much sit in my shop and look at. I'm not a top end speed fan either.(Crazy I know, but cant take the money with you) I want the HOLY S*** factor when someone looks in the engine compartment.
I'm in the process of building a Boss blocked, 4340balanced crank, eagle 3d H beam Rods, CP custom turbo pistons, Custom Turbo Cam from Bullet Racing, Holley SysteMax, On3 76mm BB turbo at the moment.
I need an opinion on a turbocharged plus supercharged 347. Yes I know one or the other would work better, but I like to be different. Does anyone think that feeding a turbo with a cent supercharger like a vortech work. I know that Power dyne offers a drivers side mount SC and a single turbo would be passenger side mount.
I was thinking that the supercharger could feed into the bell mouth of the turbo, if I could do this all the compressed air would be intercooled through one cooler, metered and all. I see this done on some performance diesel applications, just wondering on a gas burner. I'm just not sure if the air coming through the supercharger hurt the turbo, or if this turbo would try and surge. I know that once air is compressed through the SC that the turbo wouldn't have to work as hard either. As I stated earlier I'm not a big fan of hammering a car-engine at 6000 rpm's for 8 seconds, maybe more like 2secs.
Well I have been throwing around this twin charged deal, just wanted some insight on this. I really don't see why it wouldn't work, pretty much all I would be out is the price of a used SC. If anyone has any other ideas please pass them on. Thanks
