They aren't on the marine sites.... yet. They are pretty excited about their products being on the fastest pleasure cat and pleasure vee @ loto this year. They are on www.insidetopalcohol.com from time to time. Here is a link to their site. http://www.psisuperchargers.com/news.html Their blowers get used on everything from top fuel, top alcohol, pro mod, tractor pullers, etc....

You forgot to mention that the intercoolers "someone" built for you over 10yrs ago are still running and they don't leak/burn up! See ya around Gary!

My Whipples work great!! Belts lasted all season last year. Put new ones on this year and all good. Need to run them really floppy when cold so they arent running tight when the motors grow when warmed up. Simple but overlooked by some.

You clearly are mistaken, do you know how many hours PP puts on his boat? More than most. Think what you want, sticking with old technology will only get you so far. Ask anyone who has done testing back to back, test the air charge temps, put 8 wide bands on it and let me know what you find. The new sc will change drag racing.
