You're trying to decide between a $2000 supercharger and a $200 intercooler? What good is the intercooler without the supercharger?

Vortech V2 Si

It's called reclocking, very easy. Go to vortech's website and download the manual, it will explain how to perform it.

Loosen up the housing bolts and spin it to whatever position you want it.

Its very easy. Theres 6 allen bolts on the back of the supercharger...loosen them, NOT take them all out. Turn the head unit so the discharge is at the right angle, and retighten the allen head bolts. Done. Its like a 3 minute job.

Exactly, loosen the six hex bolts and twist the S/C housing. The S/C also has three brackets under the bolts. They may need to be re-positioned during the re-clocking. Mine did.

Is it bad to take out all the bolts completely? I took off the housing to see what the impeller looked like, Then i put it all back together at the angle i needed it at. Should i have not pulled it off? I dont see why it could matter.

it might have lightly scraped when i was putting it back on, but i looked at the impeller blades, and they are all still perfect. The housing has a couple super light scratches for where it might of hit, but you cant even feel it, its not deep, your fingernail barely feels it.

But then it might have even been that way from the factory, i might not have done that.
