Well....I actually did three pulls in two minutes with my Heartbeat. The car went from the highway to the dyno. No cool down. IAT's started at 100 degrees before the first pull. They were 115 after...

With a belt driven supercharger, the one with the cooler IAT's is going to make more power per pound of boost. If you don't believe that, walk outside and argue this with the trash can by your...

I've had three Maggie TVS2300's recently. A jackshaft old style Maggie TVS2300, a front drive old style Maggie TVS 2300, and a Heartbeat TVS 2300. Still own two of them. You can run the snot out of...

IAT's really do matter. The hotter they are, the less power you're going to make per pound of boost. Plain and simple. If your KB is able to make boost with reasonable intake air temps, it will be a...

Even if spark plug changes were a big time PITA, how often is that needed? I'd put spark plug change ease WAY down on my list of things that really mattered on an F/I rig. If you had to spend 2 hours...

Comparing the two, the Heartbeat...

Yeah, if the first units burn a hole in the hood and melt the belts, hoses, and wiring.....sticking those little heaters down low will look a lot better.

If you can get by without an additional oil pump or pumps, you should. I can't see where that's arguable. If the packaging dictates a turbo positioning that requires pumps, so be it. No engineer is...

If you don't smooth the top of that piston, you're inviting detonation. If you do smooth it, you'll be taking quite a bit of material off the top of the piston. Your compression ratio will be down in...

I disagree with this part of your post just a little. Just because the boost isn't going up doesn't mean the power isn't going up. A TVS typically has a pretty flat boost curve. Boost level will vary...

You can make the same peak power with a much smaller cam. With the smaller cam, you'll make more power on the low end too. No way should a cam only car pull harder than yours on the bottom end.

Yep, boost level doesn't determine your fuel needs. Power production does. If your power goes up, your fuel needs go up too. No matter the boost level.
