I haven't been able to find a money tree to plant in my yard so I guess I'd better start saving.

yeah it's essentially a turbo that runs off of the pulley system

I don't think anyone is developing a positive displacement SC for the 2.7L which is a shame.

The centrifugal ones have come a long way though.

A long way indeed. I have seen some very stout, and reliable centrifugal SC setups in the past 10 years. I wouldn't hesitate putting one on my ride either, and still prefer it over a Turbo in a truck application.



Its good to see someone finally put out a forced induction kit for our 2.7's. If all goes well with this kit, there is a good chance i'll be throwing one of the Taco.

You mean a Posative Displacement. Yeah...The centrfugel arent bad, but the boost comes on fast with a Posative Displacement (Roots type) blower.

All depends on how you use it. If you stay out of the boost, it will be as it is stock. When I put mine on my 2.7, I went from about 22, to 20.5 mpg.

Looking forward to it. So, finally, is it a root type supercharger or centrifugal?
