    hi all, so how know about the eaton m45 supercharger? if say i am starting with 200bhp, and strap a eaton m45 charger on it, will it give enough boost, and i know the charger is desinged for a 1.0 to 2.0 range as i do not want to undersize on teh charger and kill power, or give 20bhp out off it, so i want a notticeable perfomance change. thanks for any help stuart
