    So which one would I get the greatest performance out of? I'm trying to be able to smoke the shit out of my friends Hemi

    Im a fan of the Roots style superchargers. If you are on a quest for all out performance, a centrifugal ( URD ) can yeild the most power, but you are going to need a piggy back timeing and fuel controlers. Also, you will need an AFR calibrator and have it propperly tuned on a Dyno. FWIW, the TRD supercharger will be plenty to lay waste to a Hemi Ram. :)

    The Dodge probably weighs twice as much as the Taco. I bet it would be close bone stock. Plus the Dodge would break down anyway.

    The Roots delivers at low RPM; which is where I need it. I`m not my friend Bobby Unser.
    A turbo charger is of little use to me. I rarely see above 2.000 RPM. It shifts smoothly at 5500 RPM in tests.
    Bobby flew from NM to races for many years without a cert.
    He is papered up now and flying a Beech Barron.
    In some western states, the law says a safe and prudent speed. That would be quite a different speed with me in my Taco and Bobby in a Shelby on an open road.
    I feel safe at 90 MPH. 110 is a bit fast for the Taco; in my view.
