a procharger is a supercharger. anyways. just depends on your goals. do you want instant power or power that builds up with your rpms?

go with a vortex/paxton supercharger. they will give you everything you want and more.

A v3 is a great supercharger from vortech if you are a family man and have people ride in the car with you. Its quiet and makes good power. Self containing too. also a p-1sc is a good procharger but is a little noisy. your going to be pretty much at a 400 rwhp limit so no need to turbo and with that limit you will want instant power and a torktech kit would be sweet for you. Its pricy but is very nice and will put a smile on your face. Just do some research and see what you like. Youtube helps a lot

In your situation, buy the Vortech V3 S-trim supercharger kit new and be done with it. Comes with pump, injectors and a prepaid overnight FedEx box to ship your ecu out for tuning. Limit of the stock engine is around 400 rwhp anyway.

I highly doubt that.. I have every bolt on possible and I only have 270 and run low 13s. You may be over 300 at the crank

+1 you beat me too the reply aha, highly highly doubt he's at 300 at the wheel, at the crank sure that's easy..at the wheels, nah, lets see numbers if so...I love how 300 HP is such a common number for 4.6 GTs to throw out there, but very few reach it N/A
