unfortunately no a supercharger wont get you anywhere near the 10s. tom was making over 700whp and 10.95 was the best i know of that car going. however he never really launched the car for all it was worth to avoid breaking axles and other things that can be quite nasty to replace. i think he always used DOT radials as well. with that in mind had he launched the fool out of the car on SLICKS i bet he could have gotten into the 9s but like i said that would likely break the snot out of something. the most ive seen a S/C SVTF make was just over 300whp. i believe launching the fool out of the car with good slicks and suspension setup you could reach 10s with 500whp but you wont get that without turbo or a crap ton of nitrous piggybacked onto the S/C.

tom's first time in Vegas? PRICELESS!
