Any supercharger is gonna be pretty expensive. Figure right about 6 grand all done and tuned professionally. A good centrifugal one will be the easiest to install. There are positive displacement and twin screw units available from Kenne Belle that work really really well, but they are a bit harder to tune and cost a bit more.

With procharger it seems to be hit or miss. Some people love them other have seal leaks and belt slippage problems.

02stangin, Do you have a link to that vid? Superchargersonline.com has a vid of a procharger advertisement were a pro driver runs a low 12 I think and pretty much romps the hell out of that thing. I can't imagine somebody making a better run than that stock

ATI Procharger is the way to go WWW.Delkperformance.com has the P1SC kit with a 2 core intercooler for around $3,200. A 3 core intercooler can be had for another $200.00 . I was told by their sales rep that a 3 core intercooler and a P1SC kit would be $3,499.00. You have to buy the injectors and Mass air sensor seperate. A Vortech kit or Paxton with a intercooler or aftercooler will cost a lot more than the Procharger.

Prochargers are badass, but this is not necessarily true. Superchargers4less.com sells the complete paxton kit for $3099 (injectors, fuel pump, MAF included) and you can pick up a intercooler for about $600 ( or more depending on how much HP you need to support) from BTI and ebay. So theoretically you can have a complete S/C w/IC for about $3700-$3800. Vortechs are about +$150-$200 going throught the same companies. So prices are pretty similar, but vortech and paxton seem to be more consistant with quality in products.

Least expensive will be a non-charge-cooled centrifugual like Vortech at less than $4k on the car.
That said, it's really worth saving for a bit longer to buy a charge-cooled (intercooled, aftercooled) setup - cheaper to buy as complete kit up front rather than buying it by itself later. If want to get a cheaper boost in SOTP power now (while saving for your S/C) some 3.73's or 3.90's (didn't see those in your sig.) would help a lot.

I like twin screw blowers better, they may cost a lot more but IMO they are worth it. No other blower can have great power at low and high RPMs like a twin Screw. I would look into Kennebell, Saleen, or Whipple.

- don't disagree w/this; just talking the cheapest approach w/the Vortech.

You first need to think about where in the rpm range you want the extra power. A positive displacement blower will give instant boost around 2Krpms on up. A centrifugal charger will provide a linear boost curve with full boost arriving around 3500rpms. They both work well for their intended application. One note I must say is that most of the positive displacement blowers are limited in terms of maximum horsepower to around 450rwhp, after that they become inefficient. Most entry level centrifugals can reach well over 600rwhp before they max out. IMO, intercooling is the only way to go.

Most Procharger kits I have seen have been a ***** to tune. I would go with a Vortech.

my .02 cents
