Screw Your Half-Ton

Kenne Bell's twin-screw blower adds tire-frying, stump-pulling power to a late-model

There may not be a huge selection of musclecars coming out of Detroit these days, but in their place, pickups and SUV's are picking up the slack and becoming increasingly popular. Without question, these new-wave hot rods are receiving more attention as performance machines and as such, we are seeing an increase in extremely powerful engines being installed.

As most manufacturers are building trucks with stout power plants, this leaves the automotive aftermarket chomping at the bit to produce performance products for these new muscle machines.

One of the leaders in this market is Kenne Bell Hi-Tech Performance Products. With a long history of producing fire-breathing horsepower from, among others, domestic V-6 powered machines, taking on V-8 powered trucks was something they had to do.

The 4.8L engines that come in '99-'02 Chevy 1/2-ton trucks run very well on their own. But many enthusiasts are in search of yet more power. With a multitude of options out there, few (if any) would be as beneficial as the one you're about to read about.

This new twin-screw supercharger kit is one of the most complete kits available for the new-generation small-block. It contains everything required to complete a professional install, with an amazing instruction guide that leads you from start to finish. And, of course, the best part about it all is the finished product.

Installed correctly, this twin-screw supercharger design is engineered to provide instant boost and to stay there. With the Kenne Bell kit the engine receives a solid five pounds of boost from virtually the crack of the throttle, which then stays there throughout the engine's entire rpm range. Driveability is phenomenal, and the tale of the tape is that the engine gets an increase of 100 horsepower and 100 ft-lb of torque--measured at the rear wheels!

Though the kit is quite extensive--it includes everything from the supercharger to new fuel injectors--serious do-it-yourselfers should be able to complete the install in an average weekend. Follow along as we show you one of these kits being installed on a newer 1/2-ton cruiser. We're sure of one thing: Once you take a ride in the completed machine, you'll never want to drive without it.
