Kenne Bell doesn't need to make power.... The second the car screams, panties drop within a 1/4 Mile Radius! :) Hopefully my next venture will have a Twin Screw. But its either a Centrifugal or Turbo since the Blower I want is one of the rarest parts on the planet haha.

BFD. I can take out my power steering fluid and my car will sound like that.

I personally do not like the scream from the KBs. The original 1.5L KBs although tiny didn't scream like the newer ones. Hell even the first Blowzilla 2.2L did not scream as much either. They were more stealthy which I liked. They had a mean hiss and almost sounded like a vacuum leak. I had one back in the early 90s. Fun street supercharger but they still had some heat soak issue but not nearly as much as the new generation ones. In fact at full tilt, they still had less heat issues than the Blowzillas just didn't have the capacity to support much more than 375 to 400rwhp.

I would a run a fairly big turbo depending on your ultimate goal of peak HP and run bottle to help spool on the street. I did it with my itty bitty 1.7L Rabbit w/TO4 turbo with 40hp shot. The bottle would last forever. Without it, it had quite the lag unless I modulated the clutch and gas right it wasn't oh so quick.
I don't know how anyone can dislike that sound. Its just soo awesome! Better than turbo anyday.
Hahaha.....well I have a 2.1L now.....I guess I will have to live with the sound.... :lol:
