There are only really 3 choices:

1. Vortech
2. Procharger
3. Eaton M112

You can pick those up used, you just need to be in the right place at the right time.

The other suggestion is a turbo. More efficient, more power for the amount of boost, and much more fun. Used kits are around $2-2500.....

turbo!
really it depends on what you want for you money. people have made sweet power on all three superchargers. Well mayb not as high with the vortech
Depends on what you want with your car? If i were to choose i might go with the m112. No intercooler, a lot of work, and a lot of strain on the motor. Def the more expensive way to go. The m112 requires a special adapter. The procharger kit comes ready to bolt up with a fmic which is a plus.
Honestly i probably wont ever by a sc. Unless it was a supercoupe motor for a dd.
Oh did i mention turbo?
Good luck hope this helps a lil

I'm confused... you would pick the M112 cuz it has no intercooler, works the engine hard, and costs $$$$$$$$$$$$? I'm not sure I'm following your logic - please explain. (honestly, I'm not trying to bust your balls, but I think something's worded wrong...)

yes i said might go with... one being that i love the sound better, 2 being that i like to be a lil different. And 3 being that i probably wouldnt ever supercharge a v6, i like turbos so much better. The only way i would have a supercharged v6 is if it was a stock super coupe motor.
Oh yes if i did go with a m112 i would meth inject it as well.

An M112/M90 would be great as a daily driver, but takes alot of work to really be a track car. torque down low, and decent hp up top with decent porting work to the heads. You guys need to remember this: The way to have a properly balanced and flowing(intake) car, you need to try to get the hp and tq figures as close together as possible. Dyno sheets will prove that. The old Supercoupes had what, 215hp, and 310tq? Why? Because the old singleport heads did not flow well at all. Blow them out, add larger valves, and it really wakes up the car and will make those figures closer together......

and the reason I am not going turbo is because, when I was talking to a guy about doing "this" he said turbos will replace my exhaust system, and I had just bought a magnaflow system...so i didn't feel like pissing away $500...so thats why I am asking on superchargers

OK, I thought you were saying if you had to pick an SC, you would go with the M112 because it's non-intercooled, hard on the motor, and $$ -- which didn't make any sense. Now I see that you were giving your choice of SC, and then reasons not to do an SC... :smoke:

I did know about that "rule" of equal torque & hp... But you think a single-port that is P&P with new valves with an M112 on top would flow good enough? Would I need meth injection, like Jr. suggested, or is that for something else?

My long-term goal is to have a roots or twin-screw sitting on top my single-port

Read my response above. Used kits are $2-2500. That is without engine, fuel, and drivetrain upgrades.....
