I have a suggestion...with all these blowers helping meet emissions etc, I don't know why they have to downsize the displacement. Like the F-150...why not put the supercharger on the V-8? Why do they have to downsize to a V-6? They still get about the same mileage and I bet the compression is quite high. Here's my suggestion...instead of leaning out the throttle response on the K16 like they have for emissions standards (presumably)...why can't they offer a tidy little blower on it??
It's not a real question, more rhetorical. I am not sufficiently motor engineering savvy to begin to understand how the design parameters would have to altered to accomplish such a feat, but...it sounds good to me.
