so im considering buying a 174 blower for one of my cars does anybody know of any problems or why I shouldn't use one of these blowers? if I do get talked out of running this blower im probably gonna shoot 150 shot of nitrous which would be better in your opinion? the car is a stock bottom end 88 ho mustang with a set of ported and reworked pro comp 205s aluminum heads (upgraded valve train) 1.6 roller rockers x303 cam airgap intake 750 proform double pumper

I’ve got one on my falcon. Bought it used and have been running it for about 3 years. It’s a lot of fun. Looks good. Sounds good and if your looking for say 5 to 9 lbs. of boost it’ll do you just fine. My only problems come when I try to get get more boost than that my switching to a smaller pulley. It tends to burn the belt up or throw it off. I plan to work on adding a wrap pulley this winter to help with that.

I've been running one with similar comments. They do get hot on gas and I run E85 so I don't have problems but i could see issues for a gasoline engine maybe. small upper pulleys cause some gnarly belt slip and the tensioner isn't great so i think the best bet is using vortech cog stuff but I haven't done it myself to confirm. I've only been told by other users on yellowbullet.

Just use a Vortech/Paxton Novi/Procharger and do a blowthrough setup.
ANY of those are much more efficient and will have lower intake air temps than that roots blower.
