Just supercharge and call it a day. You'll spend more money doing the heads/cam and make less power than you would if you threw a s trim at it. Been there/done that.

Would you get a kenne bell blowzilla for 3 grand or a vorteh pro charger for 5 grand? What's better?

This is a decision based on your needs and goals for the car. They all have pros and cons. Your twin screw is going to make better torque and power numbers down low..... Your centrifugals are going to make more power up higher in the rpm range and also remain fairly docile at lower RPM's leaving you with very good street characteristics.

5 grand wtf kind of crack pipe are you smoking? Even new the Vortech isn't even close to that much and you can put one together yourself with a low mileage used headunit for around $1500-$1800. Or just find a good used 94/95 kit off the Corral which will be in that price range.

And to answer your question on the 5.0 the Vortech all the way. Can't intercool a Kenne Bell on the pushrod, gotta go with a snow kit or nothing.

Agreed. I got my Vortech V3 SCI kit for less than 2K brand new. I think they've gone up alittle in price, and I'm only pushing 4 psi, but runs good without a tune for about a year. But for alittle extra I can buy the parts needed to up the boost. Dont really need much more than 8 psi on a stock block street car anyways.

I thought the Blowzilla was from whipple? Or one of the roots style companies. The whine comes from the roots style blowers. Companies like Vortech, Pro charger, paxton, make centrifugal style. They don't whine like the roots style. More of a sucking sound lol

Kenne bell makes the blowzilla and flowzilla. A twos screw and centrifugal are definitely two different sounds!

Personally I like both. I like the scream of the twin screws at full throttle and I also like the pronounced whistle of the centrifugals at idle.

The f cam is probably the best forced induction grind in the FRPP options. There are probably better options in the custom grind market though.

Stock cam dude. With a supercharger you do NOT need to do the cam for block splitting power. Also there are way better grinds out there than the letter cams. The stock cam is actually a very serviceable blower cam.

Does anyone kno which would be the best blow thru carb for a supercharger. I have an 85 an don't wana convert to EFI, but I got a good deal on an S-trim. I also like the intercooling effect of the carb, I've jus never ran that setup. Sorry bout the thread jacking, I was jus curious if anyone has experiance with the carb an blower

+1! You can take that $200 and put it towards fuel upgrades.

Ment pro charger not vortech's. a new pro charger will run you 5+ grand tho.
