it seems to me like a coldside blower is the only way to go. i'd like to drive one. if you are more concerned with max power over response, you shouldn't be looking at a supercharger in the first place.

Low end tq is the key.

So we can say the MOAB and Uber are CS W/IC. Becuse it is on the CS and you don't have the heat from the exhaust, heating up the Supercharger like on the HS. (Even how little of an affect that might have)
While techically it's a CS in mounting, it's not a CS in piping..... It's got too much of it. The header blanket on my car does make quite a difference in the heat soak though.....

It all comes down to what you want to lable the important part of the CS. In my case, the instant throttle is what makes the CS so good.....

Dave,

I drove a 17psi Uber w/ FM 2 liter stroker and "all the boxes checked". It gave me goosebumps. If the MOAB is anything like it I recommend it highly.

Well, yeah, the MOAB should be "anything like" the Uber, considering it's the same blower, using the same intake manifold, using the same intercooler built by the same guy

IMO the changes to the system have made it better then the Uber.

The wastegate makes quite a differance. Boost hits harder and faster in the RPM range.

IDK my turbo is making some pretty good low end torque. 214 ft/lb @ like 3300 rpm. I'm still trying to remember to bring my dyno sheet to work so I can scan it.

Turbos usually do make more power in the curve, just doesnt feel like it since the way the are usually set up makes them feel like Uh oh here comes the power rather than a gradual increase.
