i have a 2013 scion fr-s if u didn't know, for the non-car ppl here, here's a picture of what it looked like when i first got it:

anyway I bought a rotrex c30-94 supercharger for it. i'm RLY excited, cuz it's making me go from the slowest car in the squad to the fastest. 

here's a dyno from another car with the exact setup - i'm expecting around a 260-280whp output. with a car that weighs 2700 pounds - yes it's going to be fucking zippy!!!

what’s the point if it’s close to useless under 4k rpm?

140whp @ 4,000 rpm is useless?? 180 lb ft. of low-end torque is quite enough for the car's weight. that's more than an e46 m3 lol.

no i mean like there's close to no difference vs stock 

also i drive a diesel with 350nm at like 2000rpm

i'd say around a 15% increase in torque under ~4k is still good. obviously yes the supercharger shines at higher rpms, but if you're out on a track you're not going to be under 4k much way anyway
