MPH x Axle Ratio x 336

If you use aftermarket performance bolts like ARP's, you should follow the recommended torque specifications.
Many people have the impression that a supercharger is an exotic performance part found on wild street machines or racecars. There's also the impression a supercharged vehicle is difficult to drive on an everyday basis. Nothing could be further from the truth on both counts.
