  1. Patrickshelby Thank you for the kind remarks. We do try and provide the best service in the industry. Thanks super hiss. Looking forward to it! Many thanks, Van www.revanracing.com
  2. you can switch between fuels. You simply have to dump the E-85 and use a complete return style fuel system. Then you have a separate tune for E-85 and one for 91 for normal driving or a road trip. Feel free to call me with questions. I sell a complete return style system that will support 900 rwhp easily. Complete return style systems run $2500 to $3000 with rails, regulator etc. You'll also need larger injectors. Van 561-445-7702
  3. No true. Plenty of Kenne Bell 3.6 Superchargers running Kooks headers.
  4. I know Kenne Bell does and I don't believe Whipple does.
  5. Give me a call and I'll explain the differences. The TVS will heat soak much faster due to the RPM of the blower. Van 561-445-7702
  6. You do realize that by going with a Whipple 3.4 it is the equivalent of a KB 2.8? Whipple uses a 3 x 5 Rotor Pack and Kenne Bell uses a 4 x 6 Rotor Pack. The power capability of a Kenne Bell 3.6 over a Whipple 4.0 is tremendous. You should really consider the technology and engineering of the products. Look at Shelby, Shelby 1000 and all of their high horsepower cars come with Kenne Bell Superchargers because they are more efficient and use less engine horsepower thereby creating more horsepower.
  7. That's right! 1,200 Rear Wheel Horsepower on a 2008 Shelby GT500 Super Snake. Anybody else looking to go 220 + MPH with their Super Snake??? Kenne Bell 4.2 L&M Engines All tuned Remotely by Lund Racing. Yes, that's right remote tuned by Lund Racing.
  8. Racing does exacerbate the issue however this was 2,000 miles of street driving. No open track days.
  9. Kevin Let's take the approach of: I am Ford Motor Company Does oil pass through the PCV system? Yes. Ford Motor Company went to great lengths to design the PCV return system and components. Why should Ford not install an "oil separator" It requires maintenance. It requires draining by the owner and operator of the vehicle or by a Ford Qualified Technician. It's not the $200 part that we're discussing. What happens if the separator isn't drained? That could be really bad if it were too fill up because nobody drained it. Ford would then have to engineer a catch can system that is then wired into the PCM for multiple functions. Driver Notification of the Oil Separator reaching 50% life/full. 100% life/full and then a Fail Safe Strategy that the engine would have to go into fail safe mode until drained, serviced or replaced if the system reaches 100% capacity. The $200 catch can just turned into thousands upon thousands of dollars in R&D and programming for Ford Motor Company. The PCM tells us when we have low tires, need an oil change or have another problem. Frankly, I think it is something that Ford could do. It is conceivable. It's simply a matter of total cost and what it would mean to the entire product line from Ford that uses PCV and now implementation of a PCV level monitoring system and canister. Then comes the concept of life of service. What is the intended service life of the engine? 100,000 miles? Ford is also in the business of building and selling new cars to consumers. Ford doesn't build it to fail but they don't build them to run forever either, they'd like for you to return and purchase another vehicle. The same holds true for any manufacturer. Enjoying the dialogue. What are your thoughts? Van
  10. Rick I'm not here to argue with you or anybody as much as to show evidence and proof of oil in the PCV system passing through the intercooler which can eventually get into the combustion chamber and reduce octane over time. One poster even opined as to say he is waiting for Shelby to introduce their own separator. If Ford had added separators it would be another maintenance item for the engine. Just here to share findings and evidence. Nothing is going to catch 100% of the oil return in the PCV system unless it is attached to a breather system and capped off to the return on both sides. This is simply a characteristic of these engines. Van
  11. Apparently Ford wasn't concerned with the long term either during testing. Thus the reason why they used these on the test mule at the Nurburgring.
