No intercooling, huh? It should be slower than a stock WRX, then. The increased heat rise of a roots blower, combined with no intercooling, equals less power at a given boost level than even a non-intercooled turbo would provide.

There is some one that makes a professional kit, I can't remember who it is for the life of me. It made nearly 500awhp if I remember correctly.

Rimmer tried to make a Supercharger for the RS. Too bad it required you to cut your hood.

Man what an ugly fabbed mount.

that's a hack job. but the theory is great, with a meth kit (so you don't need an intercooler) it would blow any medium to small turbo away. notice the turbo oil return hose is uncapped, and there's oil everywhere behind it...
