96 R/T 10, the car made [email protected] and [email protected]
Future owner, the only mods other than the Paxton (12-13psi) are Balenger headers, Corsa catback, RSI stage 3 heads, Aluminimum flywheel, stage 5 spec clutch, halfshafts, and a return fuel system. The cam is out of a 2001, didn't have any 97 or 98 cam at the shop to replace the crower stage 2. That's about it for mods, the short block is completely stock with quite a bit of hard miles.
After my car they did a 2002 RT with a 510 strocker, and on boost it made 897rwhp and 960rwtq /images/graemlins/frown.gif .
There is a lot of potential in the blower, its just a matter of how much boost you are willing to run....
Dchan415, just the aftercooler that comes with the kit, Jason wants me to put in a front mounted air to air for more power, but money is kind of tight right now. Now I know why I hate Christmas issed: issed:
I don't think there is much difference in the two blowers, especially now that the two companies have merged. The older Paxton's had ball bearing, which seemed to give up under extreme loads. Vortech on the other hand has always been gear driven which is a lot more reliable. Paxton's are much more quit, whereas the Vortech has a whine at idle, much better IMO. I have always run Vortech's on my cars except for the Viper. I still prefer the Vortech for some reason, but that's just me! I believe Jason Heffner is the only tuner running Vortech's on his kit. I might be wrong.
Congratulations on the numbers. :cheers: The Paxton kit has a lot of potential. I like the sleeper feel the Paxton blower (no whine at idle). If you don't mind a couple of pesky questions from a newb...
What type of fuel system did RSI use? What injectors, fuel rail, etc.
Did RSI use the timing computer that comes with the Paxton kit?
