Cool. There is a guy on the Talon and Eclipse boards who did a twin charged set up using a blower and turbo.

A guy over at j-body.org did a turbo with a sc setup. He said it ran great.
You just have to make sure you get the right turbo size and sc.

Yea I remember that huge thread on DSMtuners, the motor ended up taking a **** on him but on a stock bottom end it was expected.

I saw a twin turbo S/Ced STI a while back ago. Just the pics and description of it. I don't remember exactly how it worked but the S/C pulley was like a A/C fan clutch. When it got to a certain RPM it kicked off. Basically it was used just to spool the turbos. Insane.

I remember that. It had an AMG (mercedes) blower on it. The AMG superchargers use a clutch system for their superchargers (you can hear the belt squeel a bit when it kicks in). As stated, never saw any numbers, just a picture. however, having driven plenty of those I can tell you that those blowers are heatsoaking mothaf&*ka$.
