to cope with the bullet-like instant torque that a possy blower gives, you'l need a bullet proof drivetrain..

centrif supercharger by comparison can make lots of power and torque but its delivery is soft, and up high in the rev range, which is probably why Kilma is still safely getting around rowing his good old t5 gearbox..

each has benefits/drawbacks.. all depends how much u want in power/want to spend

Yeah for sure, i'd say thats why Terry has upgraded the drivetrain in his ED to a T-56 and 9" diff.

Yeah, well if it breaks then I'll have no option but to upgrade.

Looks like I'm going to have to get back to work pretty soon then!!!
