Supercharger preference

I have seen a lot of differing opinions on Maggie vs. Whipple vs. Centrifugal, etc.
I have a 2011 LS3, with cold air, 1 7/8 Stainless Power longtubes with hi flo cats, and StainlessWorks Retro Chambered with rdp remote tune.
About ready to pull the trigger on forced induction, just want to get everyone's thoughts. I want as much power possible without grenading the bottom end or drivetrain. What direction would you guys recommend?

I'd say get a LSA or maybe a ProCharger or a Kong or a Heartbeat.

Got a Heartbeat couple of years back. No issues with it. 700+ at the crank. Puppy in traffic, animal when you get on it. Reasonable gas mileage (if that's a concern) well-designed and great looking. Lotta people look under my hood and can't believe it's not a factory-installed option; it looks THAT good.
All the boosted guys rave about what they have fitted on their own rides, I'm no different. Bottom line is - boost is best!

With the manual trans, I'd go for a centri (I had an ECS Paxton novi kit on mine, made 623rwhp, only other real mod was LT headers and hi flow cats). It wasn't too harsh on the drivetrain and traction was less of an issue, because boost builds with rpm.

Procharger has a lot of options to choose from and the centri route will definitely be more driver friendly and easier on drivetrain parts.

If you're only criteria is the most power on the stock bottom end, have you considered turbos?

Centri blowers are rpm dependant meaning boost builds with rpm.
Positive displacement blowers are same amount of boost no matter the rpm for the most part.

Not opposed to turbo either, have just always heard they are complicated. I was just looking at the Turbonetics single 76. Is it as simple to install as they claim?

Pro chargers can get noisy but also probably give one of the best options to get more boost if you wanted too.
Whipples seem to be more daily driver friendly

I never owned either just going off of what I’ve heard

I have a vortech v2 on a mustang and enjoy it. Bought the car that way. If I did forced induction again it would be roots style. I feel they look better and keep the engine bay cleaner also.

Performance wise they all are great now. Turbo is always an option but again I feel it clutters the engine

Procharger or lsa but look at how many failures and rebuilds the others have

Turbos are simple and make more power per pound of boost as its not parasitic. Id go with the agp twin kit in a heartbeat for a daily. No changing pulleys for different boost levels, no belt slip issues, and they just sound amazing lol.
