You did not catch the car though Still I think I need one when I get more miles on mine. For driving on ski trips to the rockies, yes, yes that is the reason

Re: Supercharger

they make it sound like other superchargers have lag even though they say the stuff about turbo lag.

if you really want a supercharger get an older Chevy with a V8 and put a 6-71 on there for tons of power or an 8-71, good stuff also.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

My mustang I got about 10. THat was with 3:73 gears, 5 spd. Lightning, if I behaved (yeah right), 17.

There was no behavin' in the stang. If that thing wasn't sideways and rollin' smoke then it was at ahem..... aggressive speeds.

Take that copper...

Re: Supercharger

Whatever, take 'em for a ride and judge for yourself. After having both in my stable at the same time, those superchargers where they as soon as the green lit. Turbo's take too long to come on line. Even my S-80 doesn't really come into boost until about 70, it was the same for the Buick T type that I had. The L and the stang were in the boost from the beginning till I let off the throttle.
