freshening up the bottom end i have supercharged with a roots blower running
8PSI , had the car on a dyno and power firgures are aound 350 HP at the fly.
I also had the Supercharger up to 22+ PSI (could have been higher but thats
the higest the boost gauge read. The standard engine Held this with out a
problem, i only had it at this for a short time as i had problems with belt
