Vortech supercharger VS. Xcharger

The vortech supercharger looks just like a turbo but the xcharger is the screw type and makes that whine. Which one would get me more power?

Vortech will generate higher RWHP but Xcharger will bring its power and torque on sooner.

What are your plans for the car? That has a lot to do with the decision. I liked my Xcharger. It gave me the instant power I needed to switch lanes on the highway when the left lane came to a dead stop (I've never figured out why that happens here, no exit or entrance on the left). It also gave me what I wanted at the track with a mid 12 second convertible. The Vortech guys could run better at the top end where the Xcharger stopped building more power, but couldn't catch me on the front half where I had almost instant power and torque

I agree! I'd much rather have more instant power and torque and seat of your pants, neck snapping power!

Vortechs a good sc, never heard of the x.

But its pretty much your personal preference and your plans with the car

I went with vortech for several reasons, 1st smog eo# in California for a manual transmission. 2nd reliability - I helped install vortech on my friends 1999 cougar back in 2001 and he's not had one issue with it in 12-13 years.

I have had mine on since 2009 three years after I bought it, I drive it daily and had 65,000 on the car when I installed it...currently I have 140,000 the idler pulley bearings went bad from the coastal weather "California" that we have. Other than that its been perfect for daily driving.

Only problem with a centrifugal sc on the 4.0 is the intake manifold. Not gona hold up to much boost

What like 15lbs+? Haha good luck with that, I haven't seen anyone have a broken intake manifold or their "danger to manifold" light come on.

I've put on 70,000miles and haven't had a "gasket go". If it did then I'd have to replace the manifold because they are imbedded in the plastic.
