I wonder if you could hook something like that to an external WG if you put way way downstream to protect it from heat. Like the F40 had with the separate pipe just for the wastegates.

Put a ***** on the car connected with a sealed container of milk. Route the BV into said container. Every time you shift your car gets off.

This may be the only reason, but you could always swap to a turbo and discover torque. lulz.

your new track car is going to be sick...you **** with the lightness are making me jealous, but I will continue to drizzop the tizzop to holler at bitches and floss in my green car.

after looking into the matter i fount that if i run my supercharger setup with a turbo i can turn predictive throttle a lot better and get a lot of more instant power then i already have.

as for lightening, it's just cheaper to rip **** out then the put stuff on when your unemployed
