Default Ti to YSI whos done it?

Anyone gone from a TI to a YSI? Just wondering if you lost any low end and how they compare. If I switch to the YSI, Ill pulley down and let it eat. Some people say a YSI picked up more power everywhere and other have said they wished they stayed with the smaller blower because the YSI is lazy until 4k. I know the YSI will give me more mph in the 1/4, but I dont want it to be a turd until 4k either. I have might have the opportunity to go YSI so thought I would get onions.




Just looking for experience, that and I have cabin fever from winter.

ive gone from a t-trim to a jt to a ysi-b and now a F1X. i have to say the t-trim was the best street setup, great drive ability quiet and reliable as hell. only reason i went down the rabbit hole is because losing sucks. lol

The ysi should not lose anything down low. The setup is what makes the difference. The people who say the ysi lost probably were not using it to max. You don't want to big a blower for your setup. You want a centri blower pullied for max or even over max rpm depending on the blower. If you have 2 blowers and your goal is 700 hp, the smaller one, pullied more aggressively will out perform the larger with a lazy pulley. Its not that the blower cant come on harder, its just not setup to do it.

I agree with everything you said. I have the opportunity to build a motor and either stay with the Ttrim or go ysi. Both will be pulled to the max. This will be my set up for the next 5 years so I wanna make the best decision. Im only one pulley size away from maxing out the V3 so I already want more lol.

If you can use it and are wanting 1000ish hp then go after the ysi. Things get more expensive making that step from what is good for 800 whp and what is good at 1000 whp.

I just picked ysi over ttrim to begin with. The ysi is a loud blower. It sounds like a quiet jet engine even at idle. I donít see it losing any midrange youíd notice if you pulled it down to 2.75 or lower. These blowers can really be over driven and still be fairly reliable

I originally thought I would be happy with 700, but I made 800 and that feels slow now. Im only one pulley size away from max speed so Im almost taped on this blower. The stock cars keep getting faster and more powerful and Id like to stay ahead of them.

i loved my t-trim setup due to the mild combo i had with it. it was fast and reliable. the problem with chasing a number is you will always find the next weak link. it ran a 9.19 @147 in 2700 DA with a stock bottom end and a mild cam. that being said you "should" be ok with your drive train but nothing is guaranteed...just ask everyone else pushing over four digits.

Im afraid of that. Just changing the car because Iím bored. I did that in my heads and cam days. Went with a big cam. Made more power and was faster on the top end but I hated driving it.

I went si to ysi. First half *** pull in the ysi to about 5200 and some belt slip made 700 wheel. Found out I had a bad rod and could not continue. I have not owned a ti but I can tell you the ysi is a whole other animal to the si. It sounds soo good too. Love the sound of the strait cut gears and jet engine the ysi makes.

I too love the sound. I canít hear my TI because of the exhaust.


Im going to keep the TI for now. Just need to decide on a 383 or 402.

Do you feel that you gave up some low end going from the SI to the YSI?

Well I talked to Brett and he got me thinking about a built motor and YSI set up. UGH.

I recently started drag racing and plan to do it alot this year so maybe the YSI and built motor is the way to go for me and the future. I just need to get hammered and place the order and then be stuck with it LOL.

If Brett told you to do it, you should do it. 4 digits sure sound fun and Brett can get you there

I don't think the si to ysi looses anything down low, it feels like torque went up over the entire rpm range.

had my car on the dyno last night and made more than 500lbs of torque at 3k with the ysi. I think my si only made around 400 at 3k. Will have to find the graph to verify but I would say itís definitely better at all rpm.
