Re: what's the best supercharger for low end power

A centrifugal super charger is more gradual building boost as you accelerate. A twin screw is instant boost once you hit the gas. If you street race a twin screw would probably be the best but if you race on the track the centrifugal type will allow you easier launches.

This is just a street toy, what about a ROOTS supercharger? What is that?

The roots supercharger gives the power all at once. If you have 10 psi thats what you get when you nail the gas.

A roots is just the inefficient version of a twin screw. If yo want low end power the get a twin screw.

Don't get a roots blower. To make the eaton work you have to buy the tork tech kit to mount it. And I've seen several eaton 2v cars make low numbers due to the poor efficiency. I saw one at 10psi make 335 which is pathetic. By the time you buy the eaton and the stuff to make it work you can get an intercooled kenne bell and make 400 at the wheels

Ever think about turbo? I have the same idea as you... Roots run hot like a turbo, but make the real power.. Seen 70 mm turbo 2v making 440 rwhp and torque in the high 500's.. You tube on3 performance 2v mustang..

But if you don't wanna go that route, twin screw is what your looking for

I don't want a turbo bc it has to warm up, which doesn't help on the low end

Having to warm up the turbos won't hurt your bottom end at all? Just drive around normal for a few minutes before you get on it real hard. Turbos put down more hp and tq per psi than any blower, you just have a little bit of lag. But if you downshift and jump the rpms up when you launch it you will never even notice it

Then yea Kenny bell! If you don't car about the price!!! Honestly a good suspension, tires and a tall gear.. Well dramatically make a difference.. Boosted motors are mor efficient on top end.. Boost is cool, but I'd think you could get great 0-60 times naturally aspirated and save a few bucks in the process.. Mostly bottom end and head work, and that ***** will scream
