The boost never picked up until 2500 RPM at that point the twinscrew had it by 150 horsepower.
then that was a poor setup, or a setup meant for racing. if you are wanting a boosted application, most people dont drive easy in that case, they are over 2500 anyways during acceleration. and at 2500, that is like 75mph on average for our trucks, do you really want to be making tons of power and your supercharger whinning like crazy as you are cruising down the interstate? id, ive never been around supercharged applications much, always turbos.
so what is it like making all that extra power when ya dont need it? lol when i want all the power is when ive got the sucker hammered and am trying to beat someone, otherwise my truck has plenty of get up and go.
