In 1960 I had a Judson installed on my then new Sprite.  On the dyno  
there was a 45% hp increase but this was with 100 octane leaded gas.   
I suspect that one of the listers with a Judson installed also has  
the pressure (boost) gage installed and could tell us about how soon  
the pressure goes up vs rpm/gear.  It seemed to me that it came up  
pretty quick when I go on the pedal - - - but you know every thing in  
the past looks better when you get old.  :-)
