The FRPP badging simply comes down to marketing and money. Don't let that confuse you with design and engineering. Just like FRPP did not do the R&D or CNC the 3V heads they have in their catalog.

Second, I wanted to buy from a vendor that I knew I could trust. I have purchased a ton of stuff from Brenspeed and they have been excellent to deal with in every way. Third, although it is my opinion, I like the way the supercharger is engineered. The fit and finish are excellent and it was easy to install. Fourth, I like the quiet TVS rotors. Fifth, the E Force is capable of meeting my long term goals as far as power. I have had mine a year now, and I am very satisfied with my choice thus far. If the E Force hadn't been around, I would have probably bought a Saleen. If Brenspeed were a Whipple dealer, then that surely would have been a tough decision. If I would have wanted big power and raced the car a lot, (over 600 rwhp), then I would have went with turbos or a big Procharger.
Thanks for the support Karl!

7) liked how the E Force showed at car shows
I had my problems with Edelbrook the cai was on back order for about a 1/2 year but over all I love it
I finally got my E-Force CAI installed 2 weeks ago myself! Looks very similar to an Airraid CAI minus the elbow of course. But it actually helped the idle surge issue i had a little bit. Its surges about 50-75% less frequently now which has me happy. Not to mention i finally am not running a "hot air intake"

hey forum moderators, can you make the poll visible to people who have not voted?

since I don't have an S/C on my car, I'd rather not put in a phony vote just so I can see the poll results

got it!

thanks, I guess I should have noticed that myself, I'm used to seeing the poll or not seeing it . . .

interestingly enough, the two that I am most interested in -- Saleen and E-Force -- are tied for the most votes so far

I went with the Vortech on my daughters car for a few reasons. 1. She has an auto and I was a little concerned with the strength of the auto 2. I wanted less low end torque to minimize wheel spin and the expense of needed suspension parts and 3. Didn't want to add more than 100 to 125 hp to her car. She's drove it a little over a year now with no problems. As for Brenspeed can't say anything but good things about them. I'll be going back soon to have them put a Saleen on mine for all the oposite reasons of my daughters. I want the low end torque, I have a 5spd and I want around 475hp max so I don't have to go with the forged bottom end.
