1: I was worried about being able to use it as a daily driver, as I've seen a couple guys with superchargers that can barely drive it lower than 10mph without them stalling. Though I have a feeling it was due to the cam they chose.

2: The primary reason is budget. It's not just the cost of the supercharger itself. But, it's also the added expense of all the supporting mods to do it right. (axles, transmission upgrades, forged mains, ported heads, etc.)

I just don't have the $15K - $20K it would take to do it right. Especially since I only bought the car in April and it'll be at least 4 years before i pay it off.

From everything I've learned, it seems that 500HP is the magic number. If i stay around 450 - 470HP, I can get away with not having to upgrade so many tertiary components. Thus, making it a lot more affordable for me to upgrade the horses in my pony car.
1: There is absolutely no problem using a supercharged car as a daily driver. You won't even know it's there until you mash the throttle. Like I said, it drives like stock. As for the stalling, that was either the cam or more then likely the tune they had.

2: If you are just going with a supercharger, there is no need to get all those upgrades you mentioned. Going with just the supercharger kit alone and nothing else will cost you mid $6k-7k. It's not until you start getting into the 600+rwhp range that you should start worrying about axles, trans, forged internals etc. Remember, it's all in the tune and how you drive it, more then rwhp numbers that determine how long your car lasts.

You sound like me when it comes to buy stuff for your car. I agonized for 2 1/2 years over wheels before deciding on a set haha.

The only hang up I can see, is the fact that yours are cat-back, and ours are axle. The mufflers are slightly different, but I don't know that much about all the different models that Flowmaster makes. What do you think Scotty? You've done your homework.

I do know that they make a different cat backs for V8 and V6. Mine is also for cars with ground effects. Not sure what the difference is, but I think it may have something to do with the size of the pipes. Of course, I could be totally wrong.
