So I can basically buy a full on suspension setup from either maximum motorsports, or ride tech, air ride system. or i can get a supercharger for about $600 more. what do you think priority would be?

true, but the roads in my city are absolute ****. like im talking a gravel road would ride better than these, so i just dont want to end up breaking anything or putting more force on my tires as it is.

thats a big decision...i would personally go for the s/c...just cant help the need for power...but as stated some suspension would make the s/c much more effective.

find a kit that just replaces the weak points in the stock setup ie control arms...tie rods, shocks/struts and drop springs

do you want your car to handle well or go faster. if your priority is the road course then do suspension and screw the blower

more like breaking a piston rod....

If you put a sc on a stock motor (you have a stock motor, right?) how much power are you going to get out of it? 400 rwhp? for $6k? for that much money you can build a N/A motor that will give you 400rwhp that will last you so much longer than FI, and it would be brand new.

If you want handling, forget about the motor, get suspension, with good suspension and stock motor you could beat vettes on a road course.

So what are your goals?

I set up my sc for around $3k and it was definitely worth it

I vote supercharger. I ran a 11.39 on a completely stock suspension and 17" dr's. Then you can slowly piece together the suspension.

your not gonna be building any 400 rwhp n/a 2vs so dont have a clue where you got that form and if you did, it would cost a helluva lot mroe than 6k to do so

they set twin screw superchargers at a set psi so it doesnt do what you just said. if you dont maintain everything then yes, its possible, but it shouldnt be happening in the first place.
and a built engine would be alot more than $6k. besides, i can get a kb for $5k, so why bother?

I vote for the supercharger. theres always little bits and pieces you can buy that will be good enough to support the s/c. just my .02 cents

save another 2 weeks and buy both! My UPR adjustable uppers and lowers were somewhere around $300, then another $130ish for a bumpsteer kit to eliminate the tie rods

later you can get more hardcore into the suspension
