Perhaps "fellow car enthusiast from across the world" would have been more appropriate.

Seriously MATE, if you're going to get pissy because somebody wants to see some proof of something on the internet, and your answer is "**** you, I don't have to show proof, my word is good enough", that's just not how things work and you know it. And come on... somebody saying "claim to have" is the reason you're all pissed off... seriously "claim to have" are the magic words that make you lose your ******* mind on the internet from 15k miles away?

You spelled the word knot right, so I know you're at least a little bit educated. Why don't you go take some pictures of your car, scan the dyno-sheet, and post up your Xede maps so we can take a look and see if there's something wrong. You're down about 20-30whp if we're talking Dynojet WHP as far as I can tell, now get back to talking cars or go away.

Peak torque at 5200RPM, I'll pass. I thought the whole allure of the Rotrex was it's gearing that allowed the compressor to spin faster at low rpms, I believe it was marketed as "torque on demand?" By the time you've made 3psi I've made 12. 176rwhp at 12psi is a joke, I made 170rwhp at 7psi, with lots more torque to boot.

That's what I was thinking... I have a feeling something is not running right, tuning maybe? If Overdrawn wants help, i'm sure he will ask and some people will be happy to help.

Those figure also look funny compared to the 180whp Emilio is talking about on M.net for the upcoming intercolled kit. He is claiming Basic kit + intercooler + PowerCard for 180whp. Surely not at 12psi either.

Overdrawn: Maybe send a PM to Emilio and ask him what he thinks, maybe he has an idea? I'm sure you are happy about your kit but as a fellow car enthousiast, I'm sure you would like to have more for the $$ you paid

Definitely Arnold... He's even better than Mozart. Mozart was never a governor.

I thought the whole allure for superchargers was a flat torque band that was available at all RPM.

Overdrawn,

If you spent a little bit more time here you'd realize that Brain wasn't being rude. He's not like that. He was making an observation and analyzing the difference between reality and marketing claims. We are all curious about this new product that has grandiose claims being made about it. None of us have seen empirical data from end users of the product. You made a new thread about the subject and much of the first page is basically people wishing you would share more information about the product and the data. I think many of them were frustrated with your brevity.

And several complete strangers have extended offers to assist you in diagnostics and tuning of YOUR car for FREE just to be helpful. And still you effuse negativity. "Seek and ye shall find." If you are looking for rudeness you will see it everywhere. If you are looking for kindness it will likewise be everywhere. We can be quite helpful if you are looking for it. I'm not going to beg you to post your tuning data, but there appear to be several valid offers to assist you with it here already. Ponder it a moment.

lol @ 170whp for $3500

(I will admit that it's ******* painless to install though, that might be worth it for some people)
