    they are new enough that there aint shit out about them. truuble is getting some mules so he is the one you will have to wait for pretty much. I would get one if i could afford it but i cant so im getting nitrous instead. I talked to truuble quite a bit about them and they are definately the way to go for supercharging.

    you know people would be more welcoming to help you if you dont come off like an asshole. the people are trying to help you, they dont have to waste their time searching for links to help you, they do it to help....and even when you can do the same yourself instead of just making a thread, use the SEARCH button, its there for a reason...

    not trying to be deemining or anything to you, people are here to help...but im sure they dont appreciate responses like the one you just gave.

    I also posted the link to their site, which has pics of them, as well as a lot of info.

    But as of right now I know of 2 or 3 cars that have them...period. And only one of them is a car that actually gets used.

    here is that car:

    Engine:

    I agree, we don't work here or get paid to search the web for info to provide people with, we do it to help others out but we are not obligated to find shit for anyone and with that attitude you won't get much help.

    It's going to be competetive with Vortech and Procharger prices and, hopefully, a little bit less. I won't have an exact price until I get the test mules finished and figure out how much our production costs are going to be. But, I'm going to try my best to beat Vortech and Procharger as far as pricing.

    Nothing wrong with that unit at all. But, I bet I'll make better power. If you can wait til I do a test mule, you'll have something to compare to.

    Yeah, it functions in the same way as a regular centrifugal blower does, but uses a roller bearing system to drive the impeller, so there's virtually no friction, so it's much more efficient.
