No thanks. superchargers usually get you more neg props on a turbo forum.

I was referring to the dyno full_tilt poster. Found the pic. I was curious of the torque gain was more due to the heimholtz chamber or to the location of the filter and the temperature of the air at the filter (were both pulls with the filter outside the bay or was one behind the radiator).

Helmholtz was a moran. No need to bother.

Just use the equation to determine if it is beneficial to you. ∇2 is the Laplacian.
