    Really? it was in the 95 supercharger thread. heres a quote

    Thats where i herd it from, Opcon/Autorotor it caught my eye because i love the idea of positive displacement i.e. twin screw, forget twin-screw's bastardized cousin roots style s/c. I am very interested b/c KB is a tad bit expensive and if theirs another company that makes one comparable to it for less the price than i would be interested. I'm sort of biast when it comes to centrifugal s/c and twin-screw(like the low end power). I never herd of this company until i read that post so thats what i want to learn about.

    Sorry for the confusion man,......You would still need to have a set of manifolds to make it worthwhile. Like said earlier, Opcon/Autorotor is the manufactuer of all Kb compressors. But kb only chooses to use a certain handfull of displacement cases with their kits....i.e, 1.5,1.7,2.2,2.4. Autorotor also has race specific 1.8,2.0,and 2.4's that have a more aggressive profile.....which tends to overboost past their desired bar rate. I get a lot of stuff at cost,and can do group purchases also.

    yes, autoroter first got their start by building compressors to pressureize air plain cabins and kenne bell adapated them to cars and the rest is history. Autoroter makes the compressor and kenne bell puts the manafolds, snouts, bypasses etc. to make them bolt on to what the kit calls for.
