15cc omega dished pistons and grind out the combustion chamber to lower compression.

Wouldn't use a shorrocks they're really antiquated.
I'd use an eaton but I already know your opinion of them.

don't get me wrong for a larger car i think the eaton is a great charger but it is over weight and oversized and produces no more power than the little Rotrex charger i will be using also it produces more heat transfer to the fuel mix causing a drop in hp great if you have space for a intercooler not other wise
this is just my opinion on the research that i carried out and from talking to the few people that have done this
