Inexpensive supercharger?

I just had my stock 302 engine rebuilt and I was just wondering, what is an inexpensive supercharger I can put on this car? The power is not for racing. More or less for me when I feel like getting on the gas pedal. Can I take a supercharger off of another car that will fit on my car?


I need an answers to simple questions fellas

What qualifies as inexpensive in your book?

No. Even with a used kit you'd spend twice that after all the supporting mods are done.

1988 Mustang LX coupe will miss you greatly

2004 Mazda 6s 5 door Sport w/5spd/3.0/RX8wheels/Kon/Eibach/and then some

Best bet is to get the car roadworthy and install gears and subframe connectors.

Read the stickies in the Talk and Tech section to familiarize yourself with the fox and what she can do.

Lots can be done for $1500, but unless you find an out of this world deal on a used setup, a SC setup probably isn't one of them.

Well I have been known to say the right thing once in a blue moon. At least that is what the "housekeeper" says

It all depends what power you are putting down, what transmission you have, and most important of all what feel you like best. You definitely want to look into this before buying a set of gears. 3.73 is usually a good starting point I think.

$1, 800? Not bad. Did it make a huge difference?
