Re: centrifugal ,roots, or turbo

roots seems to be the best as far as coinciding well with the vipers power curve torque/hp but thats just one point. all systems seem damn good. overall its purely personal preference

to boost or not to boost that is the question.

The Roes s/c is not a Roots type blower, it is more of a twin screw. Less heat build up per psi of boost then a roots.

All forced induction has good and bad points.
Just because Jerome is a pornographer, does NOT mean he is ignant! He is correct.

I went with Sean due to easy on easy off install, quality of the product (probably the same among the tuners) and most importantly, the price. I simply did not want to put more than $10,000 into the car. Completely personal preference.

Twin screws are Whipple-style. Roots is a single screw. "Hairdryer" style (like most Paxtons) are centrifugal and have a bit of lag, similar to turbos (although I've read they've mostly eliminated turbo lag, not sure if that's true or not).

(That's Whipple, not nipple, Gerald.)

Roots type blowers have two rotors in them, they are not single screw. They force the air around the outer section inside the housing. The rotors if looked at from the top are straight in line, meaning they do not have a "screw" type twist to them. The rotors almost always have a Teflon strip on them to help seal against the case.


Screws usually "screw" the air into the center of the housing. This is due to the "screw" shape of the rotors. These run cooler and are more efficient then Roots type. They will also produce boost from just off idle and take less HP to drive then Roots.

With any blower it is a good idea to run a burst panel, even more important when running N2O threw it. :nod:

Centrifugal blowers have no "lag" per say, just they do not build boost as fast as some others. But this is a function of how the blower is driven. You can have a centrifugal build boost at idle if you want. :rolleyes:

Example- Underdriven, 1:1, or overdriven.

So what do you guys have, and why ?
Turbos suck. Centrifugal blows. Twin screw is good, but I'm leaning towards the triplet screw.

Hmm, very very nice, i think i will take the twin screw now,id rather have something else blown, hahah

I am leaning towards getting either a heffner system, or a roe.

Excess... you're only going to hear good things about both on this site. When you get serious, call both tuners. Ask them the questions that you're asking here. Bother the hell out of them till you are completely comfortable! Then make your decision. Between both of them, I don't think you can go wrong.
