Well...it's "different".

That video brings back memories of watching my SS on the dyno at SLP.

That's what mine'll be sounding like. The hiss lets you know besides the roar of the v8 that this car is packing something serious.

This is a good hissing. Not a hole in your tire.

I liken it to a jet engine, but I was always under the impression that Turbos, and the spool-up, and the bov, and the wastegate...etc sounds were generally associated with Rice burners...

I sorta wish it was just the V8 rumble...you know? But it is obvious that it's "packing something serious." That I like.

Love the hissing. For some, it might be annoying. For me, I'd welcome it. Pull up to a stoplight only to have Mustang or ricer pull up next to you. They rev it. You rev it w/ a hiss. They say, "crap." and continue to give you a blank stare wondering how badly they'd be beat.

I reaaaaaaally want a turbo, supercharger, or more likely a procharger for my Camaro. I read a lot into prochargers a while back and found they were pretty good works of art that really pushed out a lot of extra hp.

Okay...time to reroute the thread a little...I've heard the opposite - that Prochargers make good power, but aren't very reliable at all...So I've been concequently looking into Vortech...

Something about Turbo's just don't sit well with me...BUT if I did get one, it'd probably be an STS. That's what's on the car in my first post. that's the hiss of an STS kit....

Dragon, it doesn't drown out the v8 rumble.

You know that a hiss on a rice burner makes it faster than normal. Take the power gains it has and slap it on something that produces more power as a base. A Rice burner plus turbo can run 13's if lucky. Imagine what it can do for a Camaro.

I know...But, (I don't know when the mentality was drilled into me) Turbos have always been associated with Ricers to me...whereas Superchargers were "always meant for Muscle cars" -

If I could erase that mentality, Turbos are the logical choice - they offer the roadability (low low-end torque) of centrifugals...but when you pound it, they tend to offer more overall torque, and more useable horsepower (not just peak)....

(sigh)

Having a bigass blower sticking out of the hood is classic muscle. Over the top? perhaps. Mean as hell? YES. Turbos do offer better performance in the end, but superchargers (I'm talking huge ones) make one hell of a statement!

I think that would define the "Over the top" part of DG's statement...

I'd like to see that thing in action. It looks too big to actually be effective.

who taught you that?

there are some turbo systems that will give you good low end torque, but a s/c will boost you all the time, not just once the turbo spools.


either way
id rather hear the whine of a supercharger than the hiss of a turbo.
