H/C/I and vortech T trim on stock bottom end

It's I'm thinking about putting a T-trim on my 88 notch. It has twisted wedge heads, e303 cam, Holley systemax intake and I'm wondering if this will be too much for the stock bottom end. I was thinking I'd try and pulley it for around 8-10 lbs of boost and go 50lb injectors, 340 in tank pump, and t-Rex external. Good idea or is that blower too much? Thanks

i think that you definitly will be border line. you may get mixxed opinions on this one. but of course its gonna be a better idea for forged internal and a support system.

You should get a stronger block or reenforce that one at a minim. Your block would be on borrowed time. However if it was me I'd drop that bad boy in as is and upgrade when that one fails

S trim is enough. My stock block 306
with ARP Hardware, and Mahl pistons
lasted years with a Strim @ 10psi making
450hp to the tires. Just don'tover rev it and
you will be fine.

Yeah I figured I'd be on borrowed time with just about any supercharger at 10lbs of boost or more. Just figured the T trim is more efficient at making boost and then I could get into boost quicker in the RPM range. Was thinking if I put a relatively large pulley on it I maybe I could keep the boost down and have fun with it until I am able to get a 331 block. Thanks guys.

Oh yeah, it's a pretty good deal on the T trim system, less expensive than most used S trim kits I've found.

What would give better low end torque? S trim or T trim? Both around 10lbs of boost? I was figuring that since the T is bigger and more efficient that it might boost faster and have better low end.

Depends on the gearing in the SC.
The best low end torque will come from a Kenne Bell supercharger.
