Re: centrifical or roots

I would rather have a twin screw supercharger, Whipple, or Kenne Bell. I believe centrifugal are usually cheaper but I'm not sure. I think whipples are not to expensive. I've never had a supercharger on a car so I can't tell you from experience, this is just what I want. One of these days I plan on getting one.

Re: centrifical or roots

They do not make a whipple for the 2vmotor. Rootsblowers are defanitley fun on the street because they reach peak boost at low rpms. Get a kenne belle 2.2 to work with your stroker kit from Modular PowerHouse

roots blower put a good bit more pressure on the bottom end. Roush only pushes like 5psi with their roots blowers. I would stay away from them~

Re: centrifical or roots

This company sells whipple superchargers for 2v motors, but there not as cheap as I thought.

Re: centrifical or roots

turbo... best of both worlds.. unless you want INSTANT big block low end torque, get a kenne bell.. The non intercooled 6 psi kit is only about 3800
Either way, its not cheap

Great advice. The KB is a bit simpler to install, DIY type stuff.
Some guys like a DIY turbo kit, but it's lots more parts and work.

Hey BlwnByU, what's this?

Re: centrifical or roots

Have you heard of a guy named Willie on SVTperformance that goes by Wolverine?? Well, something like his setup, but low boost on pump gas shooting for 4 digit power numbers.. I have to find a new edge vert before I can tear this one apart though.. I found out I go nuts if I know I don't have a nice mustang sitting in the garage that I can drive.

Re: centrifical or roots

I had the same decision to make, i think i am going with Procharger. I think in my case it would be a little more streetable due that it dosen't make as much boost in the lower RPM ranges. My wife drives my car occasionally and her clutch engagement isn't the best, so a supercharger that takes a little longer to get up to steam would suit us better. Plus i am planning to move to Germany and i think a centrifgual with stock rear gearing on the autobahn would be nasty.

Re: centrifical or roots

If you want instant power go with a roots blower I had a B&M 114ci roots blower on my 82 5.0 with the stock converter and it would smoke the tires off the line through all three gears:thumbs2:

Re: centrifical or roots

Roots blowers are big inefficient hunks of aluminum.. Nothing says bad f ing *** like a big roots sticking through the hood of a carbed 68 fastback, but just get a screw for your gt..

Actually it fit under my stock hood with a 3" K&N air filter and a 750 double pumper on top of it.
