Ok guys, I need help to decide which supercharger to buy. I have $5000 to spend. Here is situation. I own a 04 GT vert and it is my daily driver. The car is completely stock. I would like to buy a supercharger that will be easy on my motor and will cause the less amount of tear and ware on the internals. Im looking to produce anywhere from 350 to 400RWHP. I have been looking at KB 2.1L but i have heard that KB is not a good idea for a daily driver. I dont intent to drag race. This is my only vehicle and would like to keep it for a while. What do you guys think? I need to make up my mind within the next 3 weeks. Thank you all!!

the centri would be better for gas mileage and there will be less wear and tear

centri. it will make more power, it will make the power in a range where you wont just burn tire, and it will be alot more controlable in the rain, and easier on your motor.

put a vortech or procharger on there 10PSI, and call it a day, you will love it.

i went with vortech because i heard bad stuff about procharger seals leaking a lot and i didnt wanna have to deal with changing the supercharger oil...but i know people around here with them and they dont have much problems, but most of my friends have vortechs and do ok with those as well...i dont think it matters much which one so it all comes down to the little details of changing oil etc

my buddies fox puts down 600 wheel with only an s trim at 15 pounds...they support plenty of power and there are different trims which are upgradable and different models that support over 1000hp...so that doesnt realy matter

i would choose vortech, like somebody else said, from time to time the seals on the prochargers have gone bad. also the prochargers have a self contained oil system so that can be a plus, and a negative, the plus is you dont have to change it until like 20-30K miles, but the negative is it doesnt get fresh oil like the vortech does every time you change your oil.

the vortech is not self contained so you tap into the oil pan.

i would pay a little more $$ for the V2 kit, you get a little larger housing, and impeller. i would also just order the basic non intercooled kit for now, then later down the road buy the paxton air to air intercooler setup. its SOOOOO much better than vortechs air to water system, plus you get a cool ass front mount intercooler.

the paxton air to air setup is a direct bolt on to the vortech, no modifications required. vortech also owns paxton.

the ebay kit is a POS, after time spent, $$ spent on pipeing and all, it doesnt save you much. sometimes cheapest isnt always cheapest since you may have to fix it later.

i jsut dont understand why some people will sacrifice so much quality to save a buck. if you dont have the $$ to do it right, dont do it at all.
