Superchargers and land speed records

... A long time ago, in galaxy not so far away

Joe Blow was started back in 2012 after a particularly slow journey to ReVolks on a freshly built 1600. Why on earth VW would want to put such a gutless engine in a heavy bus is anyone's guess but needless to say, once you add in the extra weight of a family and a bunch of camping gear things only get slower.

Eventually we made it back to Adelaide but something had to be done about the absence of power. The logical solution was to add some kind of bolt on power-adder that did not require a complete strip down and rebuild of the engine. Being inspired by what others had achieved some experimentation was undertaken. After several prototypes, success was had in installing a supercharger and the paltry 50 horses was increased to 80.

It did not take long for others to take interest in the supercharger so I decided to package it up, improve the cosmetics and turn it into a DIY kit that anyone could add to their VW in a weekend with a few tools and half a clue.  And that's basically how Joe Blow came to be.
And the rest they say is history.

A global phenomenon.

Joe Blow products are now used all over the world and can be found installed in a variety of vehicles from the humble VW Beetle, to vintage Austins and Harley Davidsons. They are used both on the road and in competition, including in our own land speed record car, setting an Australian record at Lake Gardner in G/BGALT class at 109.469mph.
