Lubed and cooled by specially formulated Traction Oil, the Rotrex kit includes a front-mounted oil cooler to ensure cool oil temps, and the only maintenance required is a 60,000-mile Traction Oil oil-change.

Its been around for 10 years. Its as small as the turbo inlet housing used. Had a large discussion on the sccoa about it. I say good for an import...Not a race blower by any means in my opinion

Going for broke!!!!
