This will also give the general public an idea what to expect out of their hardware .

Will update with more detailed pics of the motor tomorrow !
That is good to know...and another of the many reasons this is such an awesome product.

I had a Vortech v1 (rock grinder) blower on my early 90's Saleen and it was indestructible back then. Everything else broke on the car but not the Vortech, even with the cog pulley installed. With the cog it sounded like you were behind a 747 at full thrust.
