best super charger

i know mostly every body has their favorite type of supercharger and brand and most of us dont even know why thats our favorite. my favorite is the whipple. i just like the way it looks and ive heard a lot about it. but is there a super charger that is known to be the best one. which one adds the most hp and torque?

Pro charger had the first camaro into the 9s I believe - but a supercharger like that is probably not the best for most peoples dd as the power is higher up I'm the curve than the Maggie/whipple s/c

I have 4 Maggie's, on my '01 silverado, '07 Escalade, '10 SS and '12 SS vert. I guess you can say I feel like its the best unit for street use.
All have additional mods for additional power, the Escalade and Vert are over 550 rwhp, the SS over 700.
The Escalade and '10 SS have over 75k on them, no issues, just reliable power.

Whipple seems like a best of both worlds blower. But I love my combo now....cam, centri, gears, converter.

They all work when used in conjunction with the proper combination of components. Personally in my opinion the 2300 is best on 376/6.2 L motors. The whipple is probably better suited for larger cubes. I wouldn't know. I have a 2300 on a 427 and it does everything I've asked of it but if I wanted to get ridiculous it would run out of boost. The thing is reliable and worry free and that counts a lot to me. It produced numerous burnout at the Cruising the coast event .

What is your overall goal?

I personally love the Maggie and Whipple.

You will be very happy with either one of them.

PM or Call me with any questions.

Thanks

If wanting 650ish rwhp, would you still take the 1.9L LSA blower as your first choice?

I would. It is hard to compete with the extensive engineering and testing gm does to build the best parts and components. Fit and function etc. The ZL1 record is now 9.85 on the fast list. With the 1.9 liter blower.

I'm guessing GM did more than a little extensive engineering and testing before they decided to use the 2.3L TVS blower vs the 1.9L version on the ZR1/LS9 motor.

This is an age old question that will NEVER be answered without some bias. What I suggest is you make YOUR decision based on the data you collect from the manufactures. There are no two the same, and one will do somethings better than the other. It is all going to depend on what your goals, needs, and wants are. If you are interested in discussing it further please feel free to give me a call, I would be more than happy to discuss the differences with you.

So many superchargers on the market, it's hard to determine which is best. I'd dig deep into finding out not necessarily all about the supercharger manufacturers, but how superchargers work. What a twin screw is, and what are the pros and cons, as well as a centrifugal supercharger's pro's and cons.

I just know for myself I'm going Vortech from my personal experience, researching car parts for the last decade myself, superchargers have been a high priority for myself the last few years because I've wanted one myself, and after all the research I did, talking with manufacturers and such, I had to trust Vortech because they've been in the industry for decades upon decades.

there are so many variables to this question..

big HP on a built motor- Turbo or Big Centri

stock idle and stock bottom end - could pick any of the entry level sizes and be happy.
