Weird picture. Looks like a supercharger for just the front 6 cylinders. the far side fuel rail looks like there's a piece missing. Since it's no longer a prototype, we should see some numbers soon.

This S/C has been on their site before. It disappeared, and I began wondering if I had been stoned when I saw it ;)

As are quite a few of us, I'm interested in getting some comparative cost and performance numbers against the Paxton kit. Both look very nice, but the Roe piece looks like a gearhead mad scientist got ahold of it (in a cool way).

Perhaps those of us who are interested should drop Sean a line...

Here's hoping that we begin seeing a strong aftermarket for parts to back up power like this!

Man those are great looking. Trouble is I think the Paxton is going to throw up much better numbers since its intercooled and not sitting on top of the engine.

From what I'm told the Roe is a much simple install - anyone have first hand experience?

Too bad..the Roe wins the looks contest hands down ;)

Guys,
I was down at Seans shop last week and talked to David. The jackshaft on the passenger side was necessary since the Gen 3 motor has the central plenum. David is looking at different ways to modify the air inlet tube since the jackshaft is about 5 inches into the area that is normally occupied by the trucks air inlet tube. There is no problem with the stock Gen 3 Viper since it already has sufficient clearance for the central airbox.

We talked about making a ram air box to fit on the top of the S/C housing to make the hood functional. I don't think that will happen because it would not be cost effective and it would hide that gorgeous supercharger.

As far as intercoooling this supercharger I think they've worked on that but didn't find any real benefit since the boost is around 5 pounds. You'll have to ask Sean or David about the intercooler though.

I already got an intercooled, nitrous equipped, Pro-Charger powered 1996 Dodge Ram Indy 500 edition and it is really fun when it spools up and starts to wail, but after I drove a Gen 2 Viper with the Roe supercharger I really liked the power delivery better. The power is always there, down low, and ready to go anytime. I'm thinking that I will eventually install a Roe twin screw supercharger. I'm ready when they get ready to do the Ram SRT!
