the quite gear drives, are more livable than the noisy gear drives, but there all overpowering in my oppinion. if sombody heres " blower Whine " they expect the vehicle to have a blower, and even that, to get the whine, you need at least a 6/71 because the whine is caused by the cog crushing the air under the belt, sombody sees a car with a " blower whine " and no blower, you will just be a faker. but also, Gear drives produce a lot of cam harmonics, they only become benifical at higher RPM's
