Question Turbo or Supercharger

Ok so I have 5 grand to spend and Im wondering if I should go with a supercharger or turbo. Ive looked at STS turbos, but they are between 6-7 grand and I have seen one superchager thats out, but they are only taking deposits right now. What should I do? What are my other options?

Depends on what you want out of the car. Procharger is a great option that offers turbo like performance yet very easy installs. They are also very upgradeable.

I like that prochargers are easier to put on and I love the sound of them. What are my options on them?

For the V6, there's not too many options.

I'm hoping Tracy with Rx will chime in here and set you up with something. Might need a little more funds to play with but he has the proven systems without all the hype that everyone on this forum would recommend...

Please correct me if I'm wrong here

The V6 system should have plenty of options. Should be hitting the market soon.

RX Performance is just about the only place worth taking your car/time/warranty/ and money! Tracy is a stand up guy passionate about his work, and hard working! there is the STS kit, and if done CORRECTLY it can make good power. Either way, 5K is not enough $ to go FI in todays market. and as far as the IPF kit that is only taking deposits DON'T risk you money on some thing not proven.

isn't RX doing financing? so you could put 5k down and then finance the difference? just a thought, but that depends on your budget

Tracy (RX Performance) starts ordering parts for builds with a $5000 deposit! And yes you can finance the rest. And all his kits come complete with everything needed to run at full strength for the price. After he is done with my build, every big install or performance jump I make will be done by him. I'll take that 450 mile trip with no issue.

Just a word of warning and a rule of thumb - have the cash for a new motor on standby before you pull the trigger. You don't want to throw all your money into a blower, finance on top of that, then crack a ringland or spin a bearing and have to take out a loan just to get your car up and running again. It may be unlikely, but you're always better off taking the safe road.

I have another motor already. I found one used with 2500mi for $1800 so i jumped all over it. I was going to flip it, but I may hold on to it.

Tracy offers a warranty for something around the $300 range can't remember. But your point is true, you have to pay to play sometimes!!
