    True, that off idle immediate torque from a PD blower is pretty astounding and is perfect for the street. However the associated heat issues from continued use at high revs is an issue. And I'm sorry cause I'm sure this will offend quite a few people...but an ice tank in your trunk is a ghetto band aid fix. But, when used on the street, it's almost a non issue. I'm of the mind that it needs to work at full potential all the time if need be. And that is where turbos are superior since full boost is made at high revs. It's a tough call and the Weistec setups are proven...that is a big plus when considering FI. Building a one off is one thing....making a kit that is totally reliable and affordable to a guy who is getting a second hand M156 is another. At the end of the day it's going to come down to price point and reliable hp. If they can make it more powerful and less expensive than what is on the market now, they will do very well.

    For the street I really like the positive displacement, a lot. What most people really are looking for when they want power is torque. It gives exactly that, everywhere.

    The track performance is an interesting point. Chevy does well with the ZR-1 and Ford with the Ford GT. So it can work.

    Both will create heat but turbos likely won't get as heat soaked. It would be cool to do a comparison.

    Interesting, where did you hear this?

    I was wondering who would tune this.
