Go for it. I have never had too much power. With a centrifugal supercharger, the boost comes only with rpm and with a high revving low torque engine like the S65, power comes in slowly and predictably. Centrifugal supercharged power is very controllable. You won't have any issues.
Thanks for the advice. So i guess the next question would be which one to get, but that's a whole different thread
