1 or even 1.5...the rule of thumb is 1 farad for every 1000w of max power...

not all caps are the same.. I believe the 50farad types actually gives the driver a 20hp increase.

size for size they are... there is no real brand..that is better than the rest....and 50 farad cap giving a 20hp increase...hmm...sounds like that would only work if it was hooked up to a tornado, or mabyee to power some APC indiglo stickers...
