What brand of supercharger?

For $1200 is must be used, is it complete? If complete it would be a deal.


Plenty of site sponsors that can help you select parts. ------------->>>>>>

When adding a SC onto a car with that many miles, don't be surprised if you break something. I'm not saying don't do it...just be aware that it may end up costing more than $1200 in the long run, especially if you like to drive your car hard. When supercharging a car (especially w/ high miles), it's a good idea to make sure your fuel, ignition and cooling system are all working 100%. It wouldn't be a bad idea to upgrade everything especially if you want to run a lot of boost. If you want to get the most gains, headers are a must if you don't have them already. Also keep in mind that traction will become a problem, so some suspension mods and frame connectors would be a good idea.

SC's are GREAT...everyone should own one at least once. The power gain is amazing at ALL RPM's (even at really low boost levels). That said, don't try and "cheap out" and cut any corners, it'll just cost you more in the long run.
