Need Help..Super charger decisions...

Basiclly i have the bug again and this time its for some F/I

if you had a choice of these 3 SC's which would you pick..

1. Kenne Bell
2. Pro charger
3. SLP TVS 2300
4. centri, paxton novi

I guess what im looking for in answers is who has them, what do you think, which one would be best (most reliable), easiest install, most power for the dollar, im not looking to spend alot of time at the track, its a daily driver...

Thanks for any input on this...


i have a list of mods to my car

3.73 gears
3200 TQ
ARH 1 7/8" headers, HF cats, X pipe
Borla S type axle back
Ported TB
Roto Fab Intake
Suspension:
All Hotchkis, complete Trac pack, w/strut tower brace
Dyno Tuned by Tune Time Performace..

And would you add anything to this set up that i dont have already and not a cam and heads...(although that was option B intead of SC)

I have the SLP TVS2300. I think its the easiest to install(from what everyone is saying). I made 515rwhp with just a LSR intake. Race Proven Motorsports is doing install n tune for a really good price. They are in Delaware, not sure if thats too far for you

With that list of mods you're gonna want a centri blower. You have to much gear and converter for a pd supercharger. The ECS kit would be perfect. Your car is already set up for it.

Why wouldn't you recommend a twin screw or roots s/c with his setup? Im just wondering since i have almost the same mods as him and was looking for a whipple s/c after i get her up and running again

It'll hit to hard with that converter and gears. You will seriously just kill the tires. PD cars need a converter in the 26-2800 range. Bc of the instant power anymore that that and you won't be going anywhere. Same with the gears. Low gearing is a torque multiplier. PD's have insane instant tq. It doesn't need help. And if you want to drag race not only will you struggle getting off the line you will be shifting in 5th before the traps.

That gear will also cause your car to shift so fast you'll really kill you 60' times bc you'll shift the 1/2 at about 40' and slow yourself down.

Def centri for you. Otherwise factor in a gear swap and restall.

If you go with a centri blower your gears and the converter will work.

If you went with a PD blower you would need to change both out. Need is a strong word. You know what will happen in that situation.

def looking at ecs now, my next question with all this power, how do you get it to the ground and not waste it spinning tires and getting sideways, i mean i can do that fairly easy now...imagining almost 150-200hp more my car would be silly..

i mentioned i have work done to the suspension but what else is recommended to help get the added power to the pavement?

it is a daily driver...
