FI with DD

im going to be putting a supercharger on my SVTF, but i was curious as to peoples views on the powerworks supercharger. i use my car as my daily driver, commuting about 100 miles a day. they seem legit to me. they have a steep power curve, and theyre very decently priced. i know every body who responds is going be say PROCHARGER ... but lets be open minded a little hmm? hahaha.

thanks in advance ..

powerworks 4 life. haha. i have a PW'd daily driver zx3. it makes a tedious drive fun. roaring under overpasses, the occasional random encounter at stop lights, back road twisties, etc. i have a very hard 10k on my car since the kit was installed, definitely worth it. no problems, all fun :).

well thats great to know. ive only got a couple thousand miles left on the warranty (waiting for my tob to go out) hahahah.

the cai will go bye bye when you put the PW kit on. i have the borla center exit cat back (threw a svt rear bumper on), cfm flex pipe, and obx long tube headers. last time i was on the dyno i made 231/199. but you'll be way above that. do you have a trustworthy mechanic to install it for you? or will you be attempting this your self? iirc, you can view the instructions online in a pdf. order it asap, and get it on there lickity split. there is nothing like the first time you hear that whine come from your car. to me, it felt like i had a totally new car, since i over doubled my whp.
