give me your thoughts on if this blower will work aka: not blow up!!

WEIAND 144 BLOWER on a 350 bored 60 over...2 bolt main...speed pro hyperwhatever pistons...stock gm "pink" rods...stock crank. The cam and heads were matched for a blower like this. Not sure of the cam specs but it is a comp roller...and the heads a Dart Iron Eagle 215's. What do you all think?

The 60 over part and the 2 bolt mains would bother me, but the hypereutectic pistons would be a big no-no. FRANK

Keep it out of detonation and with good gas and it should last forever! Or at least until the rings wear out!

yeah..thats what im hoping for!! Do you know what the max boost is with the stock pully?? just want to make sure its not too much.

The motor I built is a 383 with Edelbrock heads 8.5-9 compression. with the stock pulleys it only had 3-4 psi. With different pulleys it makes 5-6. The boost depends apon, cam specs, engine size, and intake and head flow. A friend of mine had one of these blowers on a 350 with around 9.5 comp. and iron heads. He made more boost with the stock pulleys than me, but detonated the ring lands. These little blowers get kinda loud in boost and you can't hear the rattling till it's too late. FRANK
