I dont know anyone who regrets a supercharger, but many who regret the choice of shop installing it, so do your homework, and then enjoy.

Installing a Maggie was fairly simple. Looks great, plenty of power when I want it. It's been rather expensive though.

I've gone through a set of tires in about 1/6th the time it took me to get through the last set. I haven't been able to figure out the root cause of the issue yet.

Other than that single pesky problem, owning the blower has been great. Wouldn't change a thing other than the size of the tires I'm using. lol

The whine or whistle of a FI car makes everyone look your way. Therefore, never dance around and sing in your Camaro because someone is watching.

I went from 444 hp at the rear tires that was completely useful to 623 that I had no control over even after suspension mods. Plan for bigger tires / wheels and you'll be fine.

I'd do it again the exact same way.
