No offense but definitely not with just those mods. I have a manual and they usually show about 20 more rwhp than an auto on the dyno because of more parasitic loss. I had all the basic bolt-ons without removing the valve covers and made 321SAE rwhp. That included cmcv delete plates, Kooks long tubes, Steeda CAI, underdrive pulleys and a custom dyno tune! If you want retarded amounts of HP, then a blower is in order. LOL.

Alright then....Which Supercharger works best (puts out most HP without destroying your motor?) Most possible power gain..

I hear Centrifugal intercooled SC's work best. More power from less boost, and safer on stock internals? But which one???

They're all good depending on your ultimate goals. Suggest researching the archives here, LOTS of posts on the subject!

While we are dealers for Procharger, Vortech, Whipple, FRPP, & Kenne Bell, I suggest Vortech for centri blowers.

Vortech's have great fitment and are very efficient.
For Twin Screws, I lean towards FRPP/Whipple on GTs.
Either of these units can make 450-550WHP pretty easily.

For GT500s, I like the new Vortech 3.3L twin screw and Kenne Bell 2.8 or 3.6L blowers. (we make 715-780whp with these on close to stock engines)

Shoot me a PM if you would like pricing on any type of forced induction.

Thanks guys,

Couldn't agree more. Get your self a goal and start researching. Be sure to think about long term as well. If you think you might want more power down the road, make sure you get something that will support it.

So me putting on all the bolt-ons What i have plus Pulleys and delete plates, wont go well with a new crankshaft? Dont cranks make your car more beefy sounding and unlock tons of power?

Crankshafts are what your pistons / rods ride up and down on and have nothing to do with sound of the engine.

You're referring to camshafts, which open and close the intake and exhaust valves and could make a difference in the sound of an engine, especially at idle. I wouldn't make any decisions on camshafts without more info / knowledge, such as your medium to long range goals. They are too expensive to undo, redo, rethink, unthink, etc. Suggest keeping what you have for now

You're in the research stage, so research. This forum is full of info and don't forget to contact some of the vendors, like MD. Tell them what you want and let them tell you how to get there. Pretty simple.

IF MY CAR WENT AS FAST AS THE MONEY I SPEND ON IT, I'D WIN EVERY RACE
