Screw the Pro-Charger, - it's the engine that's built right. Sounds really good! Healthy w/BIG Cams.. -Fords sound better when built up well, with that kind of power.....Block, HEADS, then roots owned (safe)..

Fun stuff, specially those Hill climbs and Dune rides

BTW- Did you notice how quick that truck was even with the tires spinning ? Mann, - that's like perfect power down low. Guy did a great job from what I saw, wonder what his numbers are?

I don't know but they have to be up there? I'm guessing he has some mid 4 gears or higher in that thing to rip off the tires like that..and some healthy hp

Guess I should say. Pro-Chargers can really suck on the low side, with a stock or mild build as far as "usable hp" - BUT with a build like that (around 500 hp), that Pro Charger wakes right up from the light. That's a benefit that type of charger needs. When it's there, you have some crazy horse power lol.

A good example, - a lot of Dragsters used Pro-Chargers..- probably still do.

So I'm thinking that engine was probably pro built and/or built with a Pro-Charger in mind.

If I had to guess, he's getting more than 500 hp once that Pro charger comes alive... and it comes alive VERY quickly with that type of configuration.

Yea, that's a ton of rubber to spin, let alone take off like a rocket lol.

Yeah centris are a different animal than roots or screw, I had a vortech 96 cobra at about 490hp with 3:73 gears and I'd like to had 4:10 for even more low end getup
