Anyone dislike the Powerworks whine?

I find it very...high pitched and kind of girlish...I don't know, is it just me, or do other people feel the same way?

Just you

Seriously though, its a taste thing. I like a nice supercharger whine as much as I like a good turbo whine.

I'm now seriously considering the Roush kit....SO CHEAP at just 3600, thats shipping and tuning included....damn. and with 200whp and 215wtq (NICE), I would be happy with this setup. I'd probably also spring for a turbendz borla (around $400) so my system could breathe...man BOV included intercooler all that stuff....a stage 2 for $3600 shipped/tuned is such a steal! Hope they keep giving us that price...I won't have the $3600 for a while :(

Girlish?? Can't please everyone I guess

Go ask the supercharged Cobra, Lightning, and Ford GT owners about their 'girlish' cars and see what kind of response you get ...

Personally I like the whine of a supercharger more than a wastegate or BOV, especially in a friends 04 Cobra with a Kenney Bell Supercharger. If that is the sound produced by the powerworks one, then I am sold....

I had never heard whining like I did this past weekend at Sebring, it was pretty cool... They whine as they come towards you and rumble as they go past... The superchargers are loud when really pushed on the Lightnings and the Cobras.

I haven't heard the whine on a PowerWorks. Is it similar to that of the eaton used on the JRSC? If it is then I would say it sounds great.
