Blower surge on a carbed engine = poor tuning. The only real reason you should be surging with a carb is to save your transmission/outdrive etc with mega horsepower when putting it in gear. At least that's how it's been explained to me by some very reputable engine builders.

Well..........I was told the surge was an indication of being rich where you want to be w/ the blown motors..and most of 'em do it, so wut up?

I heard the same . A blower motor on the lean side will definatly detonate and burn a hole in the pistons . Next thing you know Rods scratching his head wondering what the fuk happened . Running a blower motor on the rich side also helps cool the intake charge .

Surging is actually caused by the engine burning up the small amount of fuel being pissed in at idle. As it burns up this fuel the blower forces more vacuum and the carb has no choice but to let fuel through the annular boosters. So no, blower surge is caused because the blower is forcing a rich-lean-rich-lean situation not because the carb tuning is rich. There are fouled plugs, then there are blower surge fouled plugs... I'm not an engine builder by any means, I'm definitely just an assembler... How often do you see a professionally built/tuned engine that's not a blown alcohol injection motor surging?

Example, my buddy's boat ( ) before tuning the carb. Sounds bitchin, but it's really a sign of poor tuning. Or maybe some people just like the sound.

If you have tuning questions let me know, I'm not an expert by any means. I wouldn't feel comfortable messing with someone elses stuff. But I can put you in contact with a couple professionals who are willing to share some knowledge.

That "Hondo Hal" video definitely gives true meaning to the term American Muscle. Poor Germans think they do it right...

Sorry to sound like a total novice, but will the surge of a carburated blown motor hurt the motor??  Between the surge and the whine of the belt- those are the 3 biggest reasons for me to buy a blower- and I guess the HP is cool too O0
