I am planning to put a supercharger on my car this winter as a winter project the motor is stock right now as in fact the whole car is. My 2001 cobra does have the stronger teskid block in it as it was made in the early part of 01 before the switch to the WAP block. With this information i would like to hear a few ideas that you guys have on what my options are and what is best the best brand of supercharger is. I am leaning toward Procharger right now because it comes as a complete kit but am open to opinions! i am thinking of being in the neighborhood of 450 to 500 horsepower with this upgrade. Thanks for your information and if there is anyone out there who has done this before let me know all of the upgrades and parts you needed that would be appreciated. Thanks!

Keep your boost levels sane and get a tune from someone who knows how to do it. The trans will be the first to go. Get crazy with your boost and the block won't matter, it's your pistons that will melt. Then your next winter project will be putting boost quality internals and a T-56 in.:gringreen

the block is not your concern, it's the pistons and rods, since they are not forged you cannot really run crazy boost, personally I'd recommend a Kenne Bell or Whipple with intercooler, to run 450-500 hp will require a full fuel system upgrade(fuel pump, injectors and mass air) and custom tuning.

+1 on twin screw power and watching your boost level with stock internals.

To run a twin screw you have to change the lower intake!

I don't know about whipple, but with the KB, it comes with it's own intake, you completely eliminate the stock upper and lower
