It also dissipates heat better than the cast aluminum and the sound it makesdue to the billet case
the noise it makes is because of the rotor design and the gear drive in the snout. has nothing to do with the case.. but when you are at the track and throw that ice pack on top of the blower you will never come close to damaging the blower. as for top end my car went 110 in the 8th then picked up 41MPH on the top end.. that is just about turbo territory.. I seen on an average 39-42 MPH gain between the 8th and the top of the track

The BEST I ever back halfed was 30mph and that was with a 163 trap. Hell even 200mph trap slips I've seen only go 32-33mph and even some in the 28-29s.
I've always used the rule of 28mph in the back and 3.3 seconds but that's just me.

go look on the web for the kb it says the sound is also due to the billet also. That is really good.

why.... I'm a dealer for them and have been using them and whipples for many years

if the ccase was the reason for the noise then why does a pete jackson gear drive sound the same?? furthermore why does a whipple sound the same as well when KB uses auto rotor cases and whipple uses lystrum,

I can't speak for any one else other than actual time slips and video but im sure people will say they are forged. i was blown away when i seen the MPH for a almost stock 04 cobra the weighed 3800 lbs trapping between 144-151 MPh on an average

Ya but your car was lazy out of the hole. What did Seans car run last weekend. I bet it didn't pick up 33 mph and was on a big turbo.

TTGs back half like a mother fucker because they don't have a front half worth a shit.

This has got to be a joke only one answer kenne bell 4.2L
Im not talking shit but my vortech single X trim was walking on that blower ???
I thing it just depends on how fast you want to go, and what you can afford in maintenance ? Every time u send an F2 procharger back it cost around $1000.00 and that's on the cheep end. And when I had the X trim it was around $800.00
And what ever you get go bigger then u want so ur not running it in kill mode all the time like every one in this town lol.
Just my :twocents:

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.
