Some guys aren't bent on MAXIMUM power output. On one hand, having a ton of power on tap would be cool sometimes. On the other hand, I'm kind of an old school guy, so I find it cool that I have run 12.5 NA in my car without touching my heads (and not using a clutch abusing launch). My DD is NA(~285rwhp), and I utilize nitrous(417rwhp) for passes at the track now. My NA motor should last a long time. A boosted 2V may see shortened life from higher stress levels.

as long as you have a reputable tune and arent seeing 12+psi everytime you push the pedal that motor will last you a long time

Agreed.
A blower set-up does not necessarily mean a shorter engine life. A safe tune is real important, moderate power levels and not ripping the car everywhere you go would provide good longevity.

The absence of these items will tend to stress the motor more heavily.

N/A 2V=BIG $$$$ and "I" think N/A definitely has ALOT of cool factor.

But.... F/I will definitely make more power for a lot less $$$. As far as cool factor... "I" think anyone can bolt a blower on......hahaha

just as almost Anyone can bolt on a blower almost Anyone can bolt on some heads/cam and an intake both will require tuning. If the 2v responded to heads/cams and intake like a coyote motor or ls motor then maybe it would be more common but sadly that isnt the case

personally i think it was, it just puts the biggest grin on my face every time i get on it. I remember first coming on this forum, and every person would say that bolt ons are useless and to just go f/i. I didnt really get into bolt ons too much and im really happy that i did the supercharger build
