Well alot of people here are going on3 performance turbo, great price and from most all reviews everyone is happy with it. They make more power and are a little easyer on the motor. Im also probably going this rout come spring. I looked at most all SC first but they are just so much more money for less performance good luck!

What do you want to do with the car, what are your goals?

For street driving the roots or twin screw style supercharger (Weiand, Kenne Bell...) will give you the most usable power in the RPM range you operate at the most.


For mid to upper RPM range power a centrifugal supercharger (Paxton, Vortech...) will serve your needs. They are also relatively easy to install compared to the other options.


A turbocharger system will also provide power in the mid to upper RPM range.
They will ultimately provide more power than the supercharges above, because their parasitic power loss is much lower. They are also easier on your engine because they do not side load your crankshaft and they do not introduce unwanted harmonics into your rotating assembly. However they are much more difficult and usually pricier to install. There are lower priced kits these days, but buyer beware.
Take the time to research them and read reviews on them before you purchase.


You should read the sticky thread on Superchargers & Turbos for advice on what will or should be considered for a forced induction build. There are also links in the thread to various forced induction manufacturers for you to view.
