what supercharger should i get?

As most of you know i'm building a 5.4 4v engine i've been searching online for vortech v1's I don't want to spend over a grand and i'm just wanting the supercharger headunit alone.

I figured I'd just buy a v1 then buy the powercooler seperate then make my bracket and air hoses what do you guys think?

if you are not building the engine to take boost you wont be able to boost it very much

Re: what supercharger should i get?

forged internals and I've read that lately guys have been going 9.5:1 compression on centrifugal.

What does the bracket attach to the head or the block? I didn't know if it should be for a 96-98 cobra because of the heads or a 2002 f150 for the block.

Re: what supercharger should i get?

Re: what supercharger should i get?

no the block so it would be 2002 F150.

Question, why not get a roots style charger?
