    I like the Hansen VDS blower. :D

    "this could become the first supercharger to outperform a turbo for fuel economy and responsiveness."

    I never thought about this in the past, but I guess it is because screw compressor superchargers are not that common. Refrigeration and air conditioning screw compressors use slide valves to match the load. What is shown in Motor Trend makes it difficult to see if the way they are matching the load is the same method used in refrigeration compressors.

    I'd much rather have the supercharger whine than a waist gate whistle.:Thumbsup:

    I foresee Dave O retrofitting one to Mistress
