What Super to use for at least 400 rwhp???

I'm shooting for at leat 400 Hp at the wheels. I'm going to have a PI motor built for my T-bird.. I like the Allen but from what I have read the unit tops out around 400 hp... Would the Vortec be the better choice if I want to go over the 400 Rwhp mark? Thanks

On my stock 97 NPI long block.

PI cams
PI intake
C&L upper plenum
75MM throttle
90mm LMAF
255 LPH pump
#42 injectors
JBA headers
ART true duals exhaust
Vortech V1-S blower, 9PSI, Anderson power pipe, No intercooler

385 RWHP, 380 torque.

I'm Sure with a built PI engine with mildly ported heads, and cams with some of the same supporting mods I have you would have no issue getting 400 RWHP.

Or if you decide to go with the Allen, my car, which is for sale (shameless plug) is ready to take to the next level.

A man may smile and bid you hail
Yet wish you to the devil;
But when a good dog wags his tail,
You know he's on the level.

if you want over 400hp buy the Race Kit, it supports over 500+ hp

Allen is going to be more compact install, yes it is expenive , vortech is far cheaper...

Pro Charger isnt a bad idea either

but bang for the buck id say Vortech S-Trim

aftermarket cams...crower, comp....etc
aftermarket heads, patriot has heads, modular mustang racing,couple others,
bullit intake(with vortech)
even at like 8-10 psi thats going to be 400...if you push 12-15psi 500 is out of the question...

no fabercation at all , its the most complete kit for our cars...

and the Allen is a roots, unless you get the allen race kit then its a twin screw...
Allen's can make good power at very low RPM

i cant answer that one but EECDOC can, i would imagine no, its the same basic setup but just different blower

you could email/call AED and see what they say and you could PM EECDOC also if anyone knows about the race kits he knows!
