There is nothing like a boosted V8! What direction were you thinking of going?

Best regards,

No heat 'issues' but I bet you'd pick up a little time if you could get it to run colder.

Well if your car is not paid off that could be a big reason to not supercharge it.

Boost is good but id go turboed.. well it really depends on what you want.. do you like the low down instant power or do you like stock power then a bunch and top end pull.

Ive had both on different cars down threw years and either way you go its fun lol..

If you are considering modding the car SC'ing should be considered. If you decide to go the N/A path to achieving high hp numbers with Cam, Headwork, Headers, Intake, etc, etc, in the end you will most likely have pretty close to the same amount of money tied up. The nice thing about a SC setup is should you decide to sell you can always reverse the install and sell the SC kit for a good price. When going for internal mods for performance you are really hurting any future resale value of the car, and loosing all your mod money.
