I belonged to moparts.com, a mopar web board, and only had 32 posts there over a 2 year period becuase the guys there are such jerks. One guy started a topic, it was entitled "Poll, Are roots blowers good or bad" And he wanted an explination as to why you thought that way. Everyone there loves roots blowers, except me, because they're noisy, inefficient, expensive, and I dont like the massive hole cut in the hood. I gave my reasons, told them whatI would do (turbo, or Centrifugially supercharged). They proceeded to tell me I was smoking crack, and that I should let my babysitter know I had wandered off, and that I should go back to playing with my fart can ricer cars. I wrote back and gave them legitimate reasons for my choices, and told them I wasn't going to fight with them because"Fighting over the internet is like competing in the special olympics, even if you win, you're still retarded." I realize some people could have taken offense to this, but IT was meant to eb funny, not hostile. They proceeded to call me more names, so I got fed up, called them assholes, and reminded them that I'm the future of the car hobby, not them, and that if they continue to scare off younger people there will be no muscle car hobby to enjoy. Shortly after, I was banned for calling them a**h*l*s... :roll: WTF!! They can call me a little boy, or a punk kid, or tell me to go back to my rice cars, or to go get my babysitter, but I can't call them an asshole. You know, I lost alot of respect for muscle car guys today. I have met alot of different car people, but none of them are nearly as arrogant as muscle car guys.

Reasons for why the kicked your @$$ out.

1. Root type superchargers are easier to work with on carbed engines. To use anything else would mean fabrication of duct work and what not to adapt the other suggested setups you mentioned. They usually don't like that. Keep it simple.

2. It's their board and they can do whatever they want.

3. Got Mopar?

Yep basically. You can do exactly as you suggested but it takes more work, requires more planning, and sometimes more money, Doesn't matter if it makes more power to them because it's not as simple and that's why not many do it. That or maybe they were just feeling inadequate because they drive Mopar.

I love mopars, I want a 1971 cuda, but when I run into people like that, it makes me want to switch to a mustang. I dont see the point in being an ass about it. I mean, I simply said my opinion and why I thought that way, and I told them I wanted a car that could stop and turn, as well as run like a bat out of hell and they got all pissed. I dunno... Alot of those guys on there are people who make aftermarket parts for mopars... The thought of giving them my money pisses me off. Also, Like yo said, it didnt matter to them that it makes more power... Roots blowers are soo inefficient I have a hard time figuring out why they're still made. That didnt seem to matter to them though.. they said "I dont care about efficiency." What a bunch of dumba##es!! Whats the point of forced induction if you ignore efficiencies. Personally, I think centrifugial would be easier and cheaper than a roots because it bolts right on, you buy a blow through carb, an intercooler, some piping, and ur all set. Another guy on there said "You cant run more than 14 psi on a carb" What an idiot! Procharger has a display car that runs 20 something ppounds of boost through a carb. Oh well. One day, I'll run into one f them, and smoke them with my silent, hidden centerfugial s/charger. :D

Not all muscle car guys are like that....those guys are the ones with money and don't do any of the work themselves, maybe changing wheels and tires and brakes, simple stuff. Don't let it bother ya there just a bunch of idiots!

see, I don't get that either. There is nothing quite like the sound of an awesome glasspacked V8 revving, know what I mean? But to me, there's also nothing quite like the sound and feel of my wagon pushing me back into my seat, boosting like a madman.

I hate it that "car guys" have to be such asses sometimes. Essentially, those guys with that kind of attitude is the SAME kind of attitude that a lot of Ricers have, the "my car brand is better than your car brand" attitude. It's just dumb.

btw, Mopar rules!!
