That blower is spinning itís ass off and itís on a biggish engine. Bigger blower/less timing is what I would try. He likes his hood though which is understandable. Even a 6-71 would have to be overdriven pretty well to make any psi on a 440. Bigger blower, spin it slower, less heat.

Nitro in the tank. Snow used to sell a nitro additive, don't know why they discontinued it. He only needs another 50 HP to hit the 10's ?. Id be thinking of running model heli fuel in the tank

It`s a SNOW kit,base model. Don`t have the model number in front of me.
Been messing with the w/meth for 2 years. Hasn`t helped even once in ET. or MPH.

I`ll keep chipping away at it. Not gonna just throw cash at it.
1st into 2nd on the street is a hoot. Strong.
3rd. it is pretty much spent.................. LOL

Yes, on ebay in 25litre drums, been using it for years. It won't make up for a small blower though, but you could probably add a bit more timing.

Check your actual output of the pump/nozzle setup.
Those are claims, I'd love to see some independent tests to verify as such.

If their pump can actually do that, either mine is fucked or shit. But I'm very reluctant to spend the money on a new pump, because I've seen no evidence to suggest any other pumps would be any better, as mine appears to work fine.

The problem is, nobody is actually verifying the output. I spent all day testing, with a couple of different nozzles, various pump duties, frequencies, and actually measuring flow each time spraying into a measuring jug.

Such an eye opener


But almost all of the pumps are based around the Aquatec DD5800. Who knows whether one is better than another, as nobody seems to do any testing. Each seller of each system claims theirs is the best, highest pressure, flows most etc etc. There are definitely some visual differences with the pumps though.

Why more people arent logging meth line pressure is a mystery, it was an eye opener for me.
All these companies run their pumps with their smallest nozzle to get their psi rating. Increase nozzle size or add additional nozzles and pump pressure will decrease. Lower pump voltage also affects flow. Running an inline pressure gauge will show you the truth hence the reason why none of the water/methanol companies sell one.
