    supercharger

    What do you all think of this? is it somthing like you pay for what you get? Or should I spend the money on somthing else, or spend extra and get a magnacharger? I just don't really wanna spend 5k or 6k.

    If you're looking for quick HP then its the best way to go. I would definately have headers, and exhaust first though.. at the least, headers. Then of course have it tuned after its installed. You should be looking at an additional 75-100 hp if im not mistaken. somebody correct me if i am wrong. I also know you have to run colder plugs when you go FI.. or its better to anyway.

    My friends recommend meth injection to go with the blower.

    meth injection is getting a little serious, its not gonna be a full blown drag car.

    Ah. OK. Then with the exception of the meth, cold plugs, headers, intake, tune should suffice.

    my suggestion is going turbod,this as with any type of FI needs added fuel...I read your summit post, fuel system is not included,for 75-150hp id just go nitrous...now if you want 600-800rwh or more then get back with me ill hook you up with a twin turbo kit.injectors and fuel system upgrades are first on my list,well anything above 400hp.

    Damn that's cheap. IIRC people thought they look kind of ugly under the hood so they became an also ran to Prochargers and Maggies....but these kits have run 10s.

    Note: If summit has it this cheap I bet you can find it even cheaper.

    that was my first thoughts also.....seems really cheap in the sc world. Are the vortechs self contained or do you have to tap the pan on them? One of them is a self containted unit..... I thought it was these but I'm not sure.

    i use to run a dsc1 procharger. it was great. it is self contained. when i had mine i made 645 rwhp and 582 rwt on amustang dyno with a 402 at 8.8 psi. if i had used a meth system add another 30. it cools the intake temps and boosts octaine to around 100. call the vendors and ask about prices they will come down on prices if you tell them you are shopping around.

    I think they all went to SC..self contained,those are by far the best setups ,why poke a hole in the oil pan if you dont got too,besides boost presurizes the motor.

    You have to tap the pan.

    That's a freaking STEAL at 3200 bucks.

    At first glance, I didn't think it came with the cooler, injectors, or anything else. I thought it was the tuner kit.

    I paid just over 5K for mine less than a year ago
