Do you know this for a fact because I called them and they told me their lid does not accentuate the sound of the supercharger.

Hereís a vid of it outside the car. Canít wait to see what it does at the track these round of mods. Itís making 75 rwhp more than when it ran 9.84.

Yes it does, makes them loud as hell. Every single one that comes into the shop with that lid on sounds pretty wicked.

That's pretty sick. Wonder why it makes the whine so much louder. I've got a 16 and have been wanting to upgrade to a 17+ SC cover so I might have to look into this.

​​​​​​So is result just from the cover and no other mods?

Yes, but of course doing a pulley to spin the blower faster and a cold air intake to let more of the sound out will definitely add to it as well.
