...Blow it or stroke it, either way im in a good place!!!

Get your minds out of the gutter!! I'm referring to my next project. I need advice as to whether doing a 363 stroker or going with a turbo kit on a built 306 would be a better (read: fun to drive ) street cruiser! I have no plans to ever race it. Just take it out on nice weekends and cruise ins. I plan to keep the stock hood that's why I mentioned the 363 vs a 408 or higher stroker engine. HP target around 400-450 RWHP. with great street manners.
Thanks

I would say turbo just because I like the sound the BOV makes

That thing is f'ing nice!
I would do supercharged, its the only power adder I have never had in a car. But thats just me.

Re: ...Blow it or stroke it, either way im in a good place!!!

well im making 456 at the wheels wit a 7.5 rear on a standard stroke..with 11psi of boost. a stroked combo of wut your talkn bout with boost would have you 600 plus at the wheels.

just boost it, if you break the motor you can drop your boost set-up on another block. if you stroke the motor, then break it...your outa a whole lota money for the kit and your time to build it, if you are the one building it.

you can get 400-450 on standard stroke easy with boost.

Re: ...Blow it or stroke it, either way im in a good place!!!

nope, itsa powerdyne...but all centrifugal s/c pretty much operate the same way. anything over 6psi and it's a real good idea to consider running an aftermarket bov.

and before anyone here says a word...ive been running my powerdyne for 5yrs trouble free...just throw'n it out there. my friend has been running his for 7yrs @12psi trouble free

I see, the only centrifugal supercharger I know is a procharger. I don't like the whistle they have my only dislike...........

Re: ...Blow it or stroke it, either way im in a good place!!!

im sorry to hurt your feelings guys...but no matter wut type of blower you get, rather it be centrifugal or twin screw all make some sort of noise..."constantly". some louder than other others. sometimes it's air..sometimes its mechanical..usaly a variation of both. and if you want to make decent power, anthing over 6-9psi..u will hear a noise of some type

I currently have a mild 347 in it. I have plans to do a Boss Block 363 which is a 4 bolt main block so it should be plenty strong for a street car for the stroker option. For the turbo option a dart block with a stock stroke and .30 over bore. The trick is, going the turbo route I want to run a stock cam or damn close to it. I love the sound of the BOV too! Had one on my last project. 97 cobra with a pro charger.

Re: ...Blow it or stroke it, either way im in a good place!!!

personaly i would run a supercharger..maybe a stock cam wit sum 1.7rr and really low boost maybe 5-9psi. i think that would have you where u wanna be running it on you current configuration.

Thanks man! It was a POS when I bought it! But I got it cheap and it was no rust or collision damage. I've done the SC thing. Had a pro charger, and a Vortech S trim, wanted to try my hand at a big inch small stroker or a turbo set up as a change of pace!

Re: ...Blow it or stroke it, either way im in a good place!!!

i would go s/c...turbo with that much displacement would be a ton of heat depending on boost. regardless though, the nature of turbos your gonna be making lots heat even at low boost

The 363 option is NA the turbo option is a 306. I think you may have convinced me to not go turbo. I totally forgot about the heat they generate. Great call out!! Maybe the KB blowzilla is a better option! Never had a twin screw or roots blower before!

Re: ...Blow it or stroke it, either way im in a good place!!!

the twin screws make heat too. not as much as turbo, but more than centrifugal. that's y u see so many twin screw guys running inter cooler setups...you dont see many guys running intercoolers with centrifugals unless they are running 17psi or more. and that's because they are running over a full atmoshphere, not because of mechanical heat like twin screw or turbo guys... dont get me wrong, twin screws rock, and id love to have an o3 cobra on 19psi

Same philosophy as you on the BOV. On my last blower i had the gears ( helical cut) replaced with (straight cut) because they were noisier! It sounded like a freakin 747 taking off!!

I don't intend to run over 11 psi, I've seen intercoolers on eBay very cheap. They (twin screws) make great power down low and thats a major factor in my next project. Twin screws are Stock on everything from Cobras, to Saleens and Roushes! So they must be pretty dependable and fun to drive. I likey!! Lol

Re: ...Blow it or stroke it, either way im in a good place!!!

i wasnt doughting their reliability. i just have a few books on supercharger and turbo theory. the amount of horsepower you get per pound of boost by each device, centrifugal makes more hp per pound cause it generates less heat. however, they all have trade offs because of torque ranges and peak efficiency levels.

I know what you mean! I think it's more about the street ability vs raw hp for this project. So the curves are more important IMO. I want to keep the RPMs below 5,800.

Nice, my dad was talking about getting a golf cart the whole time we were there

Definitely going to go every year from now on that place is awesome!

Was going to pick this up for $500 running just needed some exterior work and new fuel lines:

Turbo s don't create heat, they use it. twin screws produce a lot. Just run an intercooler With a turbo. Turbo all way. Great street manners and more power than supercharged.

Never known a turbo v8 mustang to last very long. Not for street applications. Under 10 or 12 psi centrifugal just makes life easier. Easy install. No exhaust mods or restrictions. Less heat. I've seen vortec kits on 5.0's hold up for years with no problems.

Are turbos like voodoo on mustangs or something? Its a centrifugal that is turned by waste instead ofengine power. They aren't overly complicated or harder on a motor. Plus if you make friends with a good exhaust guy you can do it cheaper and make more power. If you remote mount it, you don't need an intercooler. I like turbos, a lot.

My wife and Dad agree with you on this statement. I may go this route to keep things simple and tasteful. My dad recommends that I stay as close to Factory appearing as possible with the engine. Like using primarily Ford parts, factory valve covers, hoses, pulleys, fan etc. Been debating on whether the Boss 363 FRPP crate engine, or custom built 363 with the Boss block would be more economical! I don't want to mix and match to many parts nor do I want to spend an arm and a leg either. My engine builder thinks we can build a street 363 with great parts under what Ford is asking for the Boss 363 crate.

I think na will not be as streetable as you hope. You definitely can't build a fast sleeper na car. Its impossible. You will need to get away from that stock cam, which still cost you idle quality and vacuum.
