Would a S/c benefit from the same amount of rotation if it was using a belt running through it on the powersteering, or do all s/c have to be running through the alternator for best results? just trying to see what exaclty would be best so i know what to start looking at..

The thing to take into consideration is the size of the crank pulley, since that is what is actually turning the s/c pulley. If I remember correctly the portion of the crank pulley running the power steering pump is smaller so you would get slower rotation on your s/c and less boost. You want a larger crank pulley and smaller s/c pulley, well this all depends on your s/c as well.

If your using the same supercharger as I am then you should(I have only done the formula to get a ballpark amount) see 3psi, when i worked the formula it was just shy of 4. That is running a none shafted setup. If you run shafted it is a little different.

I'm using an SC14 like in the thread titled "look what came in the mail just now"

edit: I see an M90 in your sig, so you would push more than me with a similar set up. I'm guessing you won't be using a 4" pulley though.
