Includes the V3 heritage gearsets. So loud I can't understand why anyone would want to buy one. Doesn't it get old after about five minutes?

Eh, I would not want a centrifugal on a daily driver. I have one on my Mach and it’s fun/different as a toy

I've had nothing but the noisy blowers on my car, even when it was a daily it wasn't bad. Just turn up the music if it gets old lol.

Ran a D1 on my 01 Cobra as a daily. I loved the sound. I still miss my F1A sometimes. Between that and the open BOV it sounded like a jet going down the freeway.

It’s really the BOV center to atmosphere that gets old as a daily imho. Hoping that putting mine in the wheel well helps.

Mine was mounted to the pipe that ran in front of the driver side wheel well. I think being that close to all the plastic made it louder because of the air bouncing around. Plus it's basically in line with the window so the sound goes straight into the car.

In my view, the three best sounds in the world are (in no particular order)-

1. The screams certain females emit during “intimate times”

2. A fishing reel being quickly stripped of line by a large pelagic fish

3. A loud supercharger head unit under WOT
