What do y'all think is the best supercharger with the most power adds for around
$7-8k? How much horsepower did y'all gain from a certain one? And also, what do y'all think is better: long tube headers or NoWeeds diverters/cut outs?

If you are set on a supercharger, my vote would be ProCharger.

Have you considered a turbo? I guess it depends on your goals/plans....

If you are in chackbay, then you need to call Lethal racing in Lafayette. They know their stuff. They will probably recommend ECS centri. They make a ton of power with it, often.

ECS kit, meth injection long tube headers, and your making some HP!!


Lethal Performance can set you up with everything if your not doing the install yourself.

Best supercharger for that price, ECS kit.

Best way to get the most power for $7-8k, turbos.

When I originally bought my ECS kit with meth, I made 641rwhp. I added LT's and hp was bumped up to 684rwhp. That was with the restrictor plate in place. Since then, I've had it removed, added some supporting mods and now I'm at 811rwhp. I'm heading back in the next few months to have heads put on that I just purchased from ECS. Which reminds me, I just sent an email to ECS for a quote. Time to make the donuts.

Complete AGP kit is $7500, and I've seen 2 local cars make 680rwhp with no other mods besides 3" catback. If they wanted more they just need to turn the knob a bit. With a meth kit it should easily do 750rwhp. No headers, no cai, no pulleys, no belt drive upgrades.
