hey im running a gt-40 crate block, with gt 40p heads,FMS cobra intake, 70 mm throttle body, 76mm c&l maf, 24 pound injectors, 190 fuel pump, adj fuel pressure regulator, tremec 5-speed, mac headers, off road h-pipe and flows, msd 6al, blaster coil, electic fan, under drive pulleys. 3.55 in the rear end. Would it be better to go with new trick flow track heat heads or a supercharger at this point? Also any estimates on what im running for horsepower at the moment?
There's a huge difference in performance between these two and also in price. For what you have and if you have the cash, I'd say go with the supercharger. You definately won't be disappointed. Then again if you go with heads, the performance gain may not be enough over what you have and you'll end up getting the supercharger anyway. There is no way to tell how much HP you are pitting out now, but I'd guess with that combo you'd be somewhere in the 275 range.
both will be good, if you have the money for the charger go for it. But if you want to do it right, I say get the heads, matching intake, then super charge it later. You will be happy either way, but I think if you went supercharger first, you are going to constantly hear, "could you imagine what your car would do if you had better flowing heads and intake?"
'95GT, S Trim, 306, AFR 185's, RPM intake, XE270HR cam, and the rest of the bolt ons.
Best run to date with old combo: 12.2 @ 116mph w/ 1.78 60' on ET Streets.

Your're going to make more power with the supercharger. Your heads aren't bad as is. With a good supercharger and good tune, 400+rwhp is attainable with your combo. New heads will not put you anywhere near that mark. As far as power goes, I'm guessing in the 270rwhp range (tuned of course).
There are only three things the copilot should ever say:
1. Nice landing, Sir.
2. I'll buy the first round.
3. I'll take the ugly one.
yes super charge it , your pressurizing the intake , i know flow is important dont get me wrong but the sc will do fine , the heads arnt that bad , just as long as you can get it out (good exhaust), have fun with it and get the heads intake later , imo
supercharger all the way, you already have decent heads, and some SC come with all you need included, i know vortechs are made to run on stock cars, so you migh not necesarily need to get new injectors and all the other supporting parts, (all depends on what you want to accomplish) call around, talk to some shops, see what they recommend. steeda has kits give'em a call see what they recommend.
