Default Torqstorm?

Anyone try the torqstorm supercharger? Seems like a pretty good deal.

Very tempting even though my 455 is pretty mild.

Well at least they are apparently made in the USA .. I like that. Butler Performance seems to have given them a vote of confidence offering their kits for Pontiac fans in 3xxx.xx-ish $ range. I think they may be well suited for a mainly street factory block and heads motor that might be run at the track for fun. BP told me their kit would put about 8PSI boost to my 444. Thinking it would give a nice performance increase that would be safe in a healthy factory or slightly modified motor, I think that's their sales target. I don't know a lot about what the added cylinder pressure would do for detonation and pre-ignition. Probably should run intercooler system to get max benefit.

Well apparently Im at heads now since I finally have my crank, and it is through Paul on size and balanced at under .5 grams front and back. Seems like no one is piping up about Torqstorm application results .. maybe I can be the guinea .. eventually. Wondering if in a boosted application the cylinder head flow can be estimated on a flow bench by adding expected boost to pressure applied? Seems like it should be directly measureable but I have seen no one mention. Wondering what my ported #96's would flow at 8 PSI +.

I’m not sure what your asking, but I think asking if head on flow bunch can boost be applied to tell what heads flow under boost ? Or Calculator adding pressure?

Looking to see what heads flow under boost. Bought a set of 96 d port cores that were ported and polished .. I should flow them anyways just figured be good idea to boost flow them too if that can be done, donít see why not unless bench wonít do it

Not being a dick but any decent flowing head will do just fine on a boosted combo. Just soften the chamber to give you a bigger running window. I've never heard it being done either... doesn't mean you can't try I guess. Lol Good Luck!

I guess I'd feel more comfortable knowing what I can expect for a flow increase if I'm going to spend 5 grand supercharging and intercooling. If it is just a matter of changing a setting for applied pressure to the flow bench seems a little silly to not do, especially if I'm going to flow the heads anyway.

I don't believe heads flow identically na or boosted and massaging them for either condition would seem like a smart thing to do. Believe there is ideal and reality. Ideally a head with 8psi boost should flow roughly 1.5 times no boost. So a ported 240cfm #96 should flow 360cfm. Possibly 400HP to 600HP. Butler seemed to indicate that was a reasonable expectation yesterday. Not sure a 300CFM E-head would flow 450cfm with +8psi but maybe, maybe more .. only one way to find out I guess .. measure it. There will be losses in HP to run the supercharger I would expect, but since I'm new at this numbers would be nice.

Wondering if studding and o-ringing heads would better clamp and seal the head to the block for the added cylinder pressure and heat. Will likely be sending pistons to Calico for side and topcoat once I get them back. Next motor they will be done before balance.

PS "Softening chambers to increase running window" refers to what given #96 96cc heads? Enlarging volume? Radiusing/removing sharp edges in chamber contour? ... ???

PPS Thanks for input
