    the cost of novelty and originality is outrageous. a turbo b-series would be faster, easier, and cost wayyyyy less.

    I don't see how it will make any more power than if just turbo'd. The blower looks like an eaton m62, which is only efficient to about 250whp on a b series. They just don't flow that much air. I think it will be a beast down low, and then actually actually be a bottleneck in the system at high rpm's. Now if the guy built it into a 2 stage system where both boost at low rmp's, then a valve closes and only routes through the turbo. That would be innovative and work well.

    It seems like the guy has been doing his math, at least if you read about all the work he is doing on the tranny. I'm sure it's the same with his set up.

    This isn't a new idea. A lot of people are running twin charged systems.

    a lot of people have twin turbo setups as well but I still stop and gawk a them. plus as they state most feature turbos feeding superchargers while this one the opposite. And a D Series!?

    As long as the supercharger can push more air than the turbo, the supercharger will work.

    There's tons of math involved, and I think I'm going to read through this build just as an exercise in the math. :D

    No. Wagovan transmission, reinforced to the point where it's stronger than the CRV transmission. Or so is the plan.
