If one supercharger is good ...

Then two must be better?

This could probably qualify for the "C'mon Man" thread.
They must have to fire a bird cannon before he makes a pass, and I wonder if he can safely go under low bridges???







This is basically a clone of my truck (well, other than the dual superchargers, tubs, and drag chutes, etc)
Same color and everything ...

Forget the truck, look at the Camaro next door, it's even taller!

I'm sorry, I don't get the joke. They are painted and chromed rat rods, that's how I see it anyway.

There's a few Twin Supercharged Vehicle out there that look ridicules.
The only one I ever liked was this Black Vette

PS
Even know I have a massive motor and a big *** 871 with Dual Quads. The best part about my Sierra is you cant see the Supercharger with the hood closed. All I have to deal with is a couple of extra inches of a Hilborn Scoop sticking over the cowl hood.

I seem to recall that (some time ago) someone posted on Hotrodders Bulletin Board a pic of a Firechicken with 3 stuffers all piled on top of each other.

My son tells me that it is a real car and he has seen it in person

There was a 27 T roadster on counting cars that had 4 SC side by side, all working. Talk about a foot full.

My guess is that at least one of those Roots style superchargers is a straight through plenum and if the pulley is turning, it's a dummy on a bearing or two. A 4 'charger version - nahh. Again, turning pulleys do not make a supercharger. An American standard design car engine (300-600+/- cid)can only input just so much air and 2,3 or 4 of those Roots style 'chargers just don't work.

Hi Dave long time. I agree with you, but the guy said they all worked and it took all 1200 hp to run them. Again I question that.
