Hi Paul,

	I'm not sure if one of them is made in Sweden or not, but Vortech has a
couple of models that are belt driven gear accelerated cool side turbos, and a
couple of months ago "Turbo and Hi-tech Performance" ran an article on a
similar unit that looked like the way-to-go. If memory serves they had one on a
1.8L Beemer on a dyno and it was making some very impressive figures...I mean
REAL impressive:-) If you're interested I'll look up the name and address of
this device.

					Happy motoring,
