man you guys crack me up..any of you driven 2 cars with a 30lb -ft torque difference??? That is BIG! especially when you start at 130 PLUS YOU ARE TALKING PEAK TORQUE.. which doesn't mean squat. Find me ANY car for under 50K that comes with 160lb -ft torque.. good LUCK!
A supercharger will level out torque across the band, so like at around 2500RPM you may have only had 90lb -ft and now you are around 130 (which is lower than peak, so a 40lb -ft gain that never shows up when someone talks peak), that's an UNBELIEVEABLE difference. If you have never driven a supercharged car, don't judge.. and don't talk peaks when it comes to torque, look at a dyno graph and see what it does at 4000RPM and at 2500 and ALSO at the peak 6500 not JUST what it does at peak... The difference between an eclipse and a WRX is only 20lb -ft torque at peak, BUT THE WRX is SOOO much more powerful off the line... it's SICK, and a WRX is a turbo, so you will end up with lag (turbo won't spool until around 2000RPM where as a supercharger is ALWAYS spooled, so you are getting boost at 200rpm instead of waiting till 2000 because it's powered by the crank, no the exhaust).
