Any preference or feedback on Big O or Accufab single blades? Been seeing a few FS since parts searching for my build.

I can't advise either way personally but my friend was running Accufab.

For sure, on any blower application. Pushing 22psi into a 75mm hole is alot easier than sucking it in.

Heard a few horror stories about idling with the accufable single blades. Not sure what setup they had, but alot of people had issues with them. I think best bet is to find a cobra throttle body.

Welp, my Harley is going up for sale on CL today. Need some fundage to get this blower swap moving. After hearing Z7what's concerns about the extra load of large tires on the charger & tune I've decided to also move up the time frame on a set of 4.88's. Hopefully get enough off the bike sale to cover most everything. Wish me luck.

Dang I have "ferg" shipping problems too! Radiator for the diesel. Doesn't look damaged but when it's full of coolant and doesn't leak, Ill be happy. I think shippers just "chuck" boxes across the room or something. Wonder how much money ups/fedex/usps would save if they actually had a class for their employees on how to handle packages.

Seems to be going around like a bug here lately. Glad my parts are being picked up by a friend. If I were you I'd cap one side off, fill the other side up & pressure test it before going through the hassle of installing it. Still won't tell you if the tranny cooler leaks, but at least the coolant will be confirmed.

Yep, that's what I had planned. Just irritating though.

Seems like we both have had that experience.

It's just BS that they don't care about people's property. End rant
