I am considering supercharging my 2005 gt, which one is better a saleen or vortech ? What is a root or centrifigal ? I live in Toronto, my mechanic warned me about driving the car in below freezing temps 32F/0C as the colder air shot will make more compression.I have been quoted around $ 8000.00 installed is this price in line ?

No offense but maybe you should research it more before you decide. There are no "right" blowers... only varying opinions. Both kits you mentioned are good but each has its own strength/weakness. I recommend reading these articles first. There are other informative sites out there as well. Get a good understanding of what your options are based on what you want.

Almost 3k for install? It's not even an 8 hour job.
Don't forget, he is talking beaver bucks, so not quite that much. But still high.

two totally different applications on the car. You do need to do some reading up on them and decide what is best for you
I enjoy researching future possible mods for my car as well. I would not stop at vortech and roots. Also consider ATI Procharger, and Paxton as well. Do you want air to air or air to water intercooling??? Air to Air is good to about 800 hp and is less work than air to water. I would only suggest not going much over 420hp without doing some kind of engine build first. IMHO.

Good luck.
I wouldn't count the Roush S/C out either. As far as I know they're the only ones that'll back a 3yr/36,000mi powertrain warranty with their blower in place.
Ah the old northern paso, didn't catch that at first.

Here is some info I got back from Vortech from the questions I asked:
  1. <LI class=MsoNormal style="mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1">Do you sell the HO upgrade kit separately?? (I would like to build my engine before going above 425 rwhp, but would love to eventually be at 500+)
  2. What is the difference between S-trim and t-trim???
1. The upgrade kit is available separately.
8N301-290, COOLER UPGRADE, 05 MUST GT-SATIN
$1751.95
2. The T-trim has the ability to flow more air than the S-trim. Performance data is shown blow.
