Turbo (single or twin) or a supercharger

Research them all and see what tailors to your wants more. I prefer a supercharger just because I find it to be easier to tune for an exact boost level that doesn't change. Turbos boost fluctuates and can be more difficult to tune for. On another note, Street racing is completely stupid and any thread about it will be closed.

I think my next supercharged car will be a centrifugal style. I'd love to do a twin turbo, build the motor and go as high as I could.

Do you want the most power you can get?

I'm considering a paxton novi 2200. The powerband with a centri is similar to stock (meaning you wont have to relearn how to drive it), and they have the potential for big gains with a pulley - assuming you build up the internals and stuff first.

Others are very happy with their roushchargers, whipples, and etc - really, just look at the potential gains and remember, the more complex a system is, the more likely you are to have an issue with it.

I've been thinking about picking up Paxton/ Vortech. Only a hand full of companies really sell them at a good price.

I personally like the aesthetics of a big PD BLOWER. Ken bell mammoth or the newer big Whipples.

All personal preference since you have no specific application.

I am one to think that you'll be happy with any type of supercharger. Of course some are better than others in different aspects, but when the foot hits the accelerator a smile will result from any FI.

Anyone rooting for turbos hasn't owned/tuned one or is using the car as a show car or track rat.

A centrifugal blower is by far the most fun. Easy installs, typically, makes great power, easy to tune, easier on the driveline than PD or turbo. It seems pretty much tailor made for the power delivery of this platform.

Ask yourself, do you want the engine to feel like a big block? if so, then PD (Roush, Edelbrock, Whipple, Magnusson, etc.) is for you.

If the power curve of the engine suits you, the centri style matches it better but still increases the area under the curve enormously.

Don't think anyone "rooted" for a turbo. I think I'm the only one that mentioned it. I'd love to have a TT setup myself though. I also said its difficult to tune in my first response.

Difficult to tune, but VERY fun, really good power, amazing power potential, easy install and you can't be a that sound!

These are subjective opinions and really don't hold merit. I understand your giving advice but its very one sided, Turbos aren't that hard to install, by you saying this I'm assuming you're a tuner?

I've owned and installed all these styles, first off the Centri blowers are just as difficult if not more difficult to install than a PD blower. A maggy blower and Edelbrock blower take about 5 hours to install. It normally takes me about 8 hours to install a whipple or Roush blower... and that's taking my time. With a VMP plug and play wiring harness you can cut your time down by about 2 hours.
Turbos produce the most power, are the most efficient but are the most difficult to drive and dial in..... and install.

This is opinion based but I found Centris to be boring on the street whereas this is where PD's shine.

I see the OP has a Boss intake, I have the same with 3.73s. Does anybody have any experience with Vortech V3 and the setup I just mentioned?? I really don't want to get rid of my Boss intake Click image for larger version

Turbos easy install? Ever done it? Theres a whole extra side of piping to install and fiddle into fitting and x2 with twins. It's a serious undertaking.

You can get pretty serious potential out of a Centri with a afternoon length install and easy tuning. The centris big advantage is an internal step up ratio that balances off the losses to drive the blower and allows a huge head unit a/r without consequences for driveability issues.

Yeah, I found it pretty easy. I did mine myself in a day.

When looking into this myself I found the vortech v3 kit to be the most attractive to me. Its all a personal opinion really. Good luck on your search!
