*Drool*

Could have atleast cleaned the interior better, or even under the hood when it comes to selling...

I don't like the packaging (blower set up) under the hood. Reminds of when I see some Impallas all built up. I agree that it should have been clean before the pictures.

The Trilogy blower looks bigger IMO. That blower looks small to me. Not that impressed.

I think it is the second time around for that thing. If I recall it is not intercooled. I could be wrong about that.

I think this is the thread I was thinking off
http://www.mercurymarauder.net/forum...e+bell%22+ebay

Is it the same car??

Whether or not you like the KB look, the real issue with this set up is that it is not intercooled.

Positive displacement blowers especially suck without intercooling. They make more boost down low, but they make more heat as well. The set up on this car is virtually useless. You have to pull so much timing out to prevent detonation from the heat power gains are minimal.

SC without intercooling =

There is something different in the engine compartment.....It just looks out of place to have the air intake on that side.

Ok, before this become another closed supercharger thread, can anyone answer my original question?

I did not ask why Eatons are better or who's eating who for lunch.

Zack, do you know more about the car?

If I'm not mistaken, that Kenne Bell blower is a twin-screw type, not a Roots like the Eaton we have. In a twin-screw, the compression is done inside the blower housing rather than in the manifold as with the Eaton. A twin-screw (also called a Lysholm) produces less heat than a Roots supercharger. In fact, it is almost as thermally efficient as a centrifugal, therefore an intercooler isn't strictly necessary.

Not stirring the pot, just posting some factual links about the twin screw design: http://www.superchargersonline.com/content.asp?id=20

Also, the Eaton, while a roots blower, takes a bit of the twin screw design in that the rotors are twisted - not as much as a twin screw but the idea is similar.

The twin-screw looks like a very efficient design. I still would want an intercooler on any boosted applicaton - if you're going as far as putting a blower on, might as well take the extra few steps to intercool it.

The biggest concern I have, while I like the design, I hear the twin screws are very quiet. NOOOOO!!!

I do agree with many of the statements, that install doesn't look all that clean. The intake hose that runs to the EGR or PCV system that runs under the blower snout looks like an afterthought as well.

Oh, and if it's so special, why is it so dirty?
