i have been doing some reading, and have come to one conclusion.

since the m62 is pushing it's limits to make the power it does on the ion redline, they kept the rev limiter low so you don't blow the s/c.

i figure if you slap on a bigger blower with a bigger pulley, you could realisticly up the revs reliably and build much more power

i think that since the blower would be spinning much faster at higher rpm's, they encountered problems and hence the "reliability issues" above the rpm's we're stuck with now.

i figure slap on an eaton m112, keep it under its limits rpm wise, up the limiter on the engine, throw on a good header/exhaust combo, and a nice intake, the redline will be a serious competitor

any thoughts anyone???

what would you need to tune everything besides the limiter? i figure if done right it could just be a matter of swapping the s/c, and having to deal with fuel, aside from that seems like a good way to go to make power and not kill the bank!

see the problem is the blower is already close enough to the limit, that a smaller pully has killed it (so i've read). so thats why i figure throw a bigger blower not so close to its limit so you can up the rev's without blowing the blower. as it is stock, i believe revving up the engine anywhere above where the limiter sits as it is, the blower will be spinning too fast and become way too inefficient for the limiter to even be raised, but i'll tell you it sure as hell can use some more rpms.

now, this motor has been tested for a lot of power, but does that have anything to do with the rpms? has the power been lower in rpms? these are the things i would like to know, because as it sits now, i beleive this engine could rev out a little further reliably.

never thought of it that way, good concept though

now that i think of it though, being that the s/c is close to it's limit, reducing pulley size at all will NOT be a good thing, and will not trust any unless GM comes with some sort of package
