    I'm close to getting a blower, but was wondering how it was with towing. Is it hard on the engine or anything?

    ^ X2 I'm so much happier towing my boat now with the S/C. I struggled to keep up before and thought my truck was working WAYYYY too hard and the blower made a big difference. Absolutely love it... :headbang:
