Getting ready to build a supercharged 429 engine for my runner bottom v drive boat. So far i have a truck forged crank leaving the snout big to drive the blower. A bds blower manifold. Dove-a block with the milodon 4 bolt caps installed.I have both tfs streets and scj motorsports heads. im thinking of useing the streets though.i think the blower might offset the better valve angle of the newer scj heads. Thinking about a good solid flat tappet cam with a good rocker/valve train set up. Was thinking about just getting a bds 8/71. Will be running e 85 for fuel. And set static compression around 8:1 range. Im just looking to have a nice strong lake hot rod. Whats your thoughts on the heads and blower size and hp estimates.
