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.
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.
