    setback

    wow, those are some strange looking manifolds, but it all shows how far it can go to make some theories work. they must work, otherwise every tf car wouldnt have them on their cars. i wonder if ssi has tried their reverse rotation blowers on a normal rotation engine, and if it worked any better?:confused:

    I think it moves the outlets too far back, so basically you end up with the same problem just on the other end of the motor:mad:

    Hey Mike

    I didn't mean put the entrance delta on the bottom I ment put it towards the back on the top with the point forwards That's where the rotor cavity begans, isn't it The hat should look more like the old Hilborne Shotgun. This arrangement would have the longest capture as you say and wouldn't require a change of air direction inside the blower.

    Kuhl blower

    Mike Kuhl built a blower with angle slots cut in the back and I think his idea was to keep a more even boost to all cylinders and still have the pie opening before we started setting the blowers back.
