Hi guys sorry to bother everyone again with yet another thread. But im wondering what headers and cam will probably be better for my setup.

I have a 5.0 winni, ill be running twisted wedge 170 heads.
Rpm2 intakes.
Raptor pro street charger with intercooler and 9psi pulley.
42lb injectors.
BPT Underdrive kit. (dnt know if the supercharger will affect this)
80mm maf.
75mm tb.
Tuning will come via a eliminator switch chip.

Heads will be here hopefully on the 3rd next month.
So i wouldnt mind having it all here by then(cam and headers)
Its all going on a el xr8. Currently auto but am converting it to tko tremec,either 5speed or t56. Have to source a conversion kit to suit

Since it's supercharged i'd go 4 into 1's, not tri-y's, and the choices are fairly limited cause most manufacturers do tri-y's. I'd use Difilipo, pricey but they are supposed to be good.

But only for the AU, they don't do a 4 into 1 for the E series, or if they did they no longer make them.

Yeah no pacey 4 into 1s for eseries. Defillipo may get the vote. Has anyone tryed jet hot headers. I may try and be a test dummy

The underdrives will effect your blower speed if it runs off the same belt as stock.

Shiit didnt think about that. Will they work or is it better to just remove them.

Nope, you'll underdrive the blower...not good.

No wuckers man,
If you could somehow leave the underdriven water pump pulley on you would at least have that underdriven but, it will probably hit the stock crank pulley?

DeFillipo's are the good s**t anyways. They are proper tuned as far as i have been told.

I didn't know that about the e-Series & Pacie's Comp Headers.

I guess tri-y's are OK but as specified on the Pacemaker website the comp series 4-1's are made for forced induction purposes.

sorry for the dumbass question but are you able to explain how? I thought that only the harmonic balancer pulley size dictates blower speed? If i got say a larger power steering pulley would that increase blower speed? Still learning on this topic :p

That's right so, if the harmonic balancer pulley of the underdrive set is underdriving the entire accessory drive it will also underdrive the blower if running off the same belt.
