y so? maggie, slp, wipple, edelbrock, procharger. they are all good. just depends on what you want in a supercharger. some people like the look when the hood is popped. i dont like the look of a centrifical charger and would never get one personally. i had a magnacharger on my gto and it looked like a waffle iron. the slp had a nice look to it so i went that route.

I agree....when you spend this kinda money on your car you get what you want. If ascetics come in to play then I'm not gonna fault them. All the systems perform and if they meet your needs more power to ya !

Agreed, if two or three systems meet your needs then take account which looks better. But a lot of people buy them just for looks, without taking performance into account. They just want something for a car show. Now if you want 500hp and both choices will get you there, then hell yes buy what you think looks prettier. If you want a blower just to pop the hood and show off, that just isn't my thing. I guess it would be like putting chrome 22-24" wheels on the car. To each their own but it seems silly to me.

I cant see buying it for looks.... I could care less how the old one looks and the new one looks.... I want more development!

They are all good choices but become quite different as you approach 700 hp.

This is a matter of opinion. Like anything else we put on our cars.

It does look pretty clean. But also does not look like it has a superchatger at all.

I agree. I don't like their covers (old or new style) so I went ahead and made my own.

I look on there website and it does look like you can retrofit the Edelbrock with the EForce manifold top and the coil covers part #41144.

Its hard to tell by the pic... is that just a big plastic cover over the blower?

I like the new look, but I hate the concept of traping the heat in.

The cover looks great at the car shows, but Id leave it in the trunk till I got there.
