supercharger: power VS price

im going to super charge my car, i know that for sure. but i dont know what kit i want to get, iv been hearing alot of good stuff about the power works kit, and iv seen a few about jackson racing. i want to get the best bang for my buck. i seen the power works kit for 3000 and it said it put the hp up to about 220? what are prices on some other kits and the HP it adds?

The PW is probably the best option for you car. The Jackson is less expensive, but doesn't come intercooled. The Procharger has the potential for more power, but it comes at a premium over the P/W. You'd have close to $1000 more into a Procharger and that's before tuning.

I would have to agree. I think the PowerWorks is the best bang for the buck at the moment.

techincally, yes it will...i put down around 206 to the wheels with mine...
but that was running the blower at damn near redline for the M45.

I switched to the powerworks because of the M62 blower with an intercooloer..and I do plan on hitting the 300 whp mark with it.
