I think that im going to use the small motor first a 500ci. So if I blow it up it wont brake the bank. lol The clutch I've been running for a while! I'm not an expert but I hold my owen! I've ran this package for two years now minus the turbo motor! We have had good luck with the bottle! I just dont want to build a 1034ci motor to be competitive! I personally think the turbo stuff is going to take over! lol

Ok curious you live in Salt Lake friends with a Top Fuel team, pretty sure you need to remove that 4 speed Lenco from that Pro-mod and install 3 speed B&J......

Paul, we run with the NEOPMA and I can tell you that the majority of nitrous cars are running a clutch with a Lenco, the blower cars are split between a Bruno (converter drive) with a Lenco and the majority of turbo cars are running a Rossler Th210 ProMod trannys (a bad ass turbo 400).
I don't think I have ever seen a B & J tranny in the pits. Not that they aren't good but it being there are always plenty of Lencos around someone has spare parts and a gear set. Seems our group likes to eat reversers for breakfast!

Mike I think your going to find less is more with a turbo motor. We run a BBC, started with a 632, dropped down to a 565 and now down to a 521 and IMO think motor makes as much Hp and all around is easier to tune and make happy. I do know NHRA, NEOPMA, NMCA all have cube limts of I think 525 with 88mm turbos. This year NHRA put a 43 psi boost limit on the turbo cars so that why you have seen them slow down.

As far as a clutch vs a converter, well to spool a turbo you need exhaust heat, with a clutch there is no engine load which equals almost no exhaust heat. That means you had to put it on the chip and pulling timing out, with a converter you have engine load so you already make heat and need to pull a whole lot less timing to make it spool.

Don't get me wrong I am not saying you can not do all that, hell Buddy Ingersol did it in Pro Stcok what 27 yeas ago?

Paul, I was kind of being a smart ass assuming that Mike is friends with Jeff and Mike Strasburg (probably spelt last name wrong) they run a Top fuel car and own B&J there shop is on the outskirts of Salt Lake. Went there a couple of times when I was working in Pocatello Idaho great guys!
