supercharging my focus which one

I have a 2.0L zetec been wait for 2 year for this day time to supercharge. But which one ? my Engine is pretty much stock, have done little things to improve preformance and pepared for this day eg. racing headers, sports exhaused, lighted flywheel from focus sport, cold air induction larger throttle body from jc racing & a duel friction clutch rated to 500bhp. I have my eye on two complete kits. 1 focus sport vortec supercharger kit look easy to install in less then 8 hours or 2 power works eaton style supercharger kit, this kit take 16 hours to install why so long I ask, does the engine have to be taken out or is it a complex installation. Which one guys?

Of the two you mentioned, your only choice is the Vortec for a complete kit. Powerworks is no long making kits for the focus. They have a few kits left for the SVT, but none for the Zetec.

I have to agree, I think the ProCharger is far better than the Vortec kit.

The Focussport system is nice ... complete kit - injectors & tuning are included. Also was relatively easy to install. Only drawback is no intercooler, but Water/Meth Injection can be easily added.
