I'm just curious as to...

1) What style supercharger you're running? Roots or Lsyholm?

2) Was the motor set up for an RV application? This can have a dramatic effect on how the power (torque, not hp) is delivered. Does it produce power down low, middle or upper rpm ranges? What kind of camshaft is in the motor?

3) Is the fuel management system able to cope with.....

A) The right size pump in the tank to push the right amount of fuel? Or did they place a lower rated fuel pump outside the tank on the frame rails. This lack of fuel could have an effect on motor performance when you need it most, like climbing hills.

4) Is it possible one or more of your brake callipers is seized a bit and causing your brakes to drag?

5) Are the sparkplugs, wires, coils insulated against heat, and are the correct heat range for the motor?

6) What kind of transmission are you running and does it have the correct torque converter specifications to better transfer power from engine to running gear. Has the fluid been changed recently?

Many things can negate performance; go through this list and more that others can suggest before throwing out the baby with the bath water.

PS It would be cheaper for you to buy a later diesel pusher than convert the P30 to diesel........less noise too.
