Screw type impellers are cool because the air flow is continuous. Some of the straighter semi-helix impeller designs get irritating because the air comes in as a series of staccato blasts. That's why you get that thumping sound underneath the blower whine sometimes...

$8k... and I was getting all excited about the possibility's of having one for my 05. Well that flew out the window fast. :rolleyes:
That quote may be in $AUS. Multiply $8000 by .758989 to get the conversion into $US. If that's correct, then you're looking at $6K and change.

When it's 3 Tuesday afternoon here in San Francisco, it's 8 Wednesday morning in Sydney -- so those blokes will no doubt get back to you after they finish their first case of Victoria Bitter.

By the way, a brewery down there markets two beers. One is called Piss and the other is called Piss Weak (it's their light offering).

Australia's my kind of place. My goal is to live in the US from April through September -- and Australia from October to March. Sort of a never ending summer kind of a thing.

I really don't know how they could get it up to 1k hp and make the car work without the drivetrain simultaneously exploding.

I'd much rather go with Lingenfelter's complete engine rebuild set-up and such. I talked to them about it and they've had a goat running at about 700-750 rwhp after complete installation. Comes with the heafty price tag of around $40k though.

I hear a rumor..... and remember this is a RUMOR, that there is a 1000rwhp GTO in existence..... the motor was dynoed, but once installed, the drivetrain (tranny and rear end :rolleyes: ) won't hold up! (GO FIGURE) :D
