Your engine was rated 205 HP/265 TQ at the crankshaft. At the rear wheels, after the loss through the drivetrain it is only 165 HP.
Yeap, you are making a pathetic 165-170 RWHP with a 4.6L V-8. So the ALLEN blower with 6-psi jumps it to 250 RWHP right away with no other mods to the engine, exhaust, etc. That is nearly 100 REARWHEEL HORSEPOWER added, all the time, ready to use.
Tuned slightly you can see 275 RWHP with the addition of exhuast and a 9-psi pulley you can make 300 plus RWHP. Most 9-psi cars see 300-330 RWHP.
You have doubled the output at the wheels from stock. 165 + 165 = 330 RWHP.
The crankshaft is now seeing 385 HP and 440 TQ.
