Default actually, if you look at the scale...

2.5k rpm is pretty far into the range for a "0" graph.

It's not actually impossible (for a twin turbo heh):

Default oh yeah.

and a supercharger's power curve looks like that.

Do I need to smack some sense into you?

Default it's two turbos silly...

it's an RS6.

I said it's not impossible, not "not impossible for a supercharged engine".

Default Is that why hp from this supercharged S8 ...

drops to zero at 6700 rpm? Since an S8 redlines at ~7300 rpm, I guess the motor grenaded before it got there.

Default What did you do wrong to me nothing... are you Motodyne? No.. do i have an issue with you no.

So why should i be nasty? I have never purchased anything from Motodyne nor have i ever seen any proof that any of their stuff works. I have no conneciton to Robert Hack other than an email regarding his supercharger kit. I want a customer review. I could give a crap about Motodyne, i want to see a s/c Audi. $10,000 is way to much for a s/c kit, but he can charge whatever he wants. I think he should be focused on fixing his PR nightmare. Why so defensive?
