I have a Polished SN93 with brackets, spacers, K&N air cleaner, Taper-lock 6 rib pulley, and 2 belts. The kit is minus the S-Turns for the blower to TPI conection. It made 7 Lbs of boost on my 350, and has exceptional low end response. I had a $700 rebuild done by Paradise Wheel about 2000 Miles ago. The Taper-lock pully set cost like $300 alone. I would like $850 for what I have.
PM me if interisted.

Thanks,

Chad

This set up is best used with a 350 or smaller as the blower is rated for 850 CFM. It will make about 7# of boost but also has RPM limitation for the pullie I have on it. It should be ran at 4800 and below.
It is best suted for a TPI 350 as thay run out of power @ 4500+ anyway.

They are quite reliable if you don't continualy over-rev these units.

I ran it on my 383 , cammed, AFR heads and it made 6# but my cam wants to rev higher so I switched to a Vortech "T" trim.

Dispite the claimes tha these ball drives are in-efficient, this Paxton made more power up to 4000 RPM than my Vortech T.

I have everything to mount this unit less the S-turns (I used for the Vortech)

I would call Greg at Blower works to see what the S-Turns costs new.
I have sean them used from time to time on E-Bay.

1 Pic is installed for visual.
1 Pick is the parts on the bench that are what is included with what I am selling

Good Luck
Chad
