    More info is needed first....

    ...what are your plans for the car?
    ...where are you wanting to feel the majority of said power?
    ...how much are you looking to spend?
    ...how much power are you looking to make?
    ...what other mods have you or do you plan on making to this car?

    For someone to just blurt out a particular blower to you without knowing any of these factors proves that some people still have a lot to learn before they post. :)

    I am one of those guys Gearbanger101 is trying to warn you about. I ask no questions, do not have a supercharger, never installed one, but that does not stop me from saying:

    Kenne Bell!!!

    Heat and limitations are always an issue.....although some of the KB faithfuls conveniently and constantly ignore this fact. :rolleyes:

    ....and lets not forget cost. KB's often run $1,500-$3,000 more than some other blowers on the market. :eek:

    I agree....Kenne Bells are very cool. As are twin screw blowers in general. I may come off as a KB hater at times, but that’s not the case. I like them as much as the next guy. :nice:

    ….but they're not for everyone, for every budget, or for every situation. No one blower is better than another and no one blower “does it all” so to speak. Different blowers excel at different levels and perform with different characteristics. Gotta go with what suits the application and budget best, that’s all. :)

    "You have to pay to play"
    "Horsepower isn't cheap" / "You get what you pay for" :spot:


    It isn't KB's fault because they build a real sweet complete quality package and charge more for it. Now if "Mac" bought out KB and started building their own "Mac" Twin Screw blowers...then it might be okay to gripe about the price. :rolleyes:

    So are you saying that because Paxton, Vortech, AED, ATI, FRPP and Powerdyne don't charge big bucks for their kits, that they're in no way "real sweet" or a "complete quality package"? :scratch:

    The KB that I bought seemed to cost more.


    I'd say at the very best of the best that you listed....they're still not as sweet as the KB. Especially the Powerdyne. That could be why I see so many postings where people "wanted the KB, but..." they ended up picking one of the others that you mentioned.

    With the KB, you get a free intake. That has to be worth a little. :D
