Also, you don't need to come close to 7k rpm's, the roots blower makes a ton of torque off idle and at low rpm.

Whether it's a 6 or 8-71 isn't the issue with torgue, torque at 10 #'s of boost is what it is, given the same motor specs, regardless of what's bringing that boost on.
Boost adds dignity to what would otherwise be a vulgar brawl...
