Yahoo the hybrid type Raptor is being tested as we speak.
I'm first in line for a BA head unit according to Tim.
The swept area of the impeller will go up from 128mm to 153mm so more boost all the way up.
Should know more soon.

More boost all the time for the same impeller speed.
With my 14 lb pulley i would probably blow my engine to pieces.
Probably have to go back a bit bigger.

I don't know it's diameter but Bruce says it's the smallest he's ever made.
Tim's getting 14lb out of the 58.5 i think.
It'll be nice to have say 18lbs of boost at full tilt but turning the gearbox and impeller slower.

ok cool! im currently running the 59mm pulley..
and it is still well under the rated max internal rpm of the raptor v.
i beleive its max rated at 60,000rpm and with the formula tim gave me im currently at 48735rpm @ 5700 engine rpm... so there is a bit of potential there especially with a larger impeller..

imo the only potential week point in the raptor v is the internal belt..
its a pity there wasnt a gear drive model or conversion available?? :!:

The latest version of the internal belt is much stronger,and pulling lower revs i can't see an issue..
Don't know if you are aware but my vehicle is the BA test mule so we swap stuff out and check it or change it if needed.
I've changed belts because Tim had newer versions or to check the spec in the charger,or the ceramic bearings stuff like that.It's never needed anything but you don't know untill you have a look inside.
The 2 blow off valve version is because i told Tim it was needed because of flutter that might of led to a belt failure.Constant improvement is the go.
My thing gets FLOGGED and i've never had a failure,but having said that i probably will..

ohhh.. i see :)
yes mine was recently upgraded to a wider profile belt and pulleys..
i have now upgraded to a two 32mm blow off valve set up due to the huge amounts of flutter i was getting.. :)
