Has anyone tested or compared the new blowershop XR1 14/71 against the LB-20 or superman ?
The LB21 is their newest. What kind of OD are you going to run?
It's a grudge car so I won't be limited, but they claim their new XR1 will outperform the k11 superman, lb-20, or even the dmp m-4 , but I can't find any data to back that up?
Not sure I have ever seen a Blowershop supercharger on a winning car at any big Promod race. Has anyone else?
It's got a billet case with the changeable top and priced right with the lb-20 and maybe the lb-21 and they say it's even better???
If it was me I would not want to put my money into a new and unproven blower. It may or may not be good but it is unproven.
I believe some boat guys use that blower.
Yes and tractor pullers too , they say the world record top fuel blown hydro is running it and they claim on their blower dyno it outperformed the LB-21 and dmp m-4 but not the m-5 ???
I am with Mike on this one , what drag racer has used this piece on pavement and I would like to see the results .
Maybe its the next big thing, but I don't know of any top running (or any) tractor puller that has them on. How about they give you references and you let us know
I know most of the top pullers in the country and I don't recall anyone running this blower. 75% of the top pullers are running SSI's and DMPE's The other 25% are PSI's, Littlefields and some Chuck Ford stuff also.
I'm definitely gonna do more research before I try one
Call Andy Wilfong at Littlefield and talk to him. He is a member of this forum and a really knowledgeable blower guy.
Ok , thanks again mike
SoDak , no need for references . Any new supercharger that surpasses the currently available units would have already been on the tractor pullers and drag racers engines and the word would have been spread . The racing/pulling group is pretty small and word travels fast as you surely know .
Thank you all for your input!
I would be glad to help, there's more to a blower being better then just boost,
I will be back at work on Monday, give me a call
Shop number is 714-992-9292
OK, did a little research. The current T/F hydro record holder, at 3.36@262mph. Is The Problem Child of Eddie Knox Racing they use the Blower Shop XR1 14-71 blower.
