Thats very good background info there that puts perspective on the unknowns of the Companies involved.

10.5 is a race sc were working on. Its nearly double the price of an 8.3 as it has a hollow rotor, new profile, etc. Power increase all comes to the airflow demand so I would say its overkill for anything less than 1500hp. To note, we also have a 12 liter coming. Keep in mind, the race SC's are driven off the male rotor so if you compare to the 8.3, 2.3, 3.3, 4.0.... then the 10.5 is actually 13.1 liter and the 12l is 15 liter!!!!!!

Thats still the short version. The fact that they cost us millions of dollars by back dooring us, breaching the contract that THEY wrote. But hey, there failure eventually became our success as we were always stuck to there failure to understand the market or how to properly build a SC for internal combustion engines.

My motor was built with a Lysholm SC right before you guys started selling your own and sure enough, the needle bearings went bad and caused the rotors to hit the case. When I pulled it apart, I thought "why would they use needle bearings in here?" Now I have one of your new whipple units and it has ball bearings in there. Much better design for something that spins 12k+ rpm!

I just sent one of my Prochargers back to the factory after 10 years of trouble free service, 1800 for complete rebuild but was due to oil not being changed every 100 hours so all my fault
