Superchargers are the easiest way to gain horsepower on these cars. You can find new kits cheaper than 5k. Can also get a used kit way cheaper than that.

No if you are on a tight budget, yes if you got the money to throw away. Adding a supercharger is like going from a sunny day to a thunder storm. You will notice a BIG change when its done right.

Worth it? That is a value judgement. It can be worth it to one person and not to another. I went from 235 rwhp to 383 rwhp. To me it was worth it. To you it might not be.

Its like saying is a forged motor worth it. It's about a $7,000 upgrade and it would take my car from 383 rwhp to 500+ rwhp. To a lot of people its worth it. To me? Maybe, maybe not.

I wen from 230 to 460 and well worth the money. But shortly after I got bored with it an wanting more.
That's the way it goes, always wanting more. The hard part is learning when you want too much

Does it come with the supercharger? Please post a link. It almost sounds too good to be true.

Nothing in the MOD world is cost effective, your really all over the place are you looking for a motor or Blower? If your situation revolves around money then set your limit, and we can help you get the most from your money. If you have an open budget then there are plenty of people on here with different opinions such as me I would tell you to go one wy when others would tell you to go another.
scott2001GT would tell you to buy an MMR motor because he loves them so much:)

So what is your goal? what are you after a motor with a blower or just a blower?

Oh it's definitely cost effective. I ended up putting mine together for a little less than that, but it was with a ported blower, pullies, powdercoating and some other goodies.

That said if it's a complete liftout $6k isn't a bad deal.

And you WILL feel a HUGE difference. I went from a timid ~235hp NA 4.6 SOHC to a ported/pullied/cammed Cobra powerplant with around 550hp, and it's night and day. If you like getting thrown into your seat when you mash on the skinny pedal, and breaking the wheels loose on command, yes, totally worth it.
