holy crapp!! I wonder what peak boost is since the SC reaches it's peak right before a shift and the turbo is already spooled by then. WOW

I think you're thinking of Centrifugal Superchargers, which build boost linearly with RPMs. The picture looks to have a roots type supercharger, which builds boost much earlier, but generates a lot of heat at higher RPMs.

I'd love to see a dyno plot for this supercharged/turbocharged STi.

i wonder if they were serious about why he needed 3 boost gauges...

I would only assume, 1 for the turbo, 1 for the blower and the third is a total boost :roll:

the way I look at it is if the car has the crazy horsepower balls to back it up then decals are allowed. and that car got some balls

Crazy horsepower balls = yes
Decals = no

No matter how much HP he has....it just makes the respect fade.
