16 Looking to increase the power output of your normally aspirated stroker? Looking to make a serious performance statement? Blowers are cool, and big blowers like the Weaind 8-71 use on this 383 stroker are even more so. Not only do they look badass sticking out of the hood, but they are capable of some serious power on the right combination. Adding the 8-71 blower to this small-block increased the power output from 571 hp to 813 hp at just over 11 psi. Note that the curve was still climbing and the 8-71 had plenty of boost left in reserve. At the elevated boost levels, you might think about a CryO2 system from Design Engineering Inc. (DEI), which can significantly reduce inlet temperatures and allow you to run pump gas.
