I would say both are GREAT in stability/ reliability never herd of one going bad.

Powerworks better performance.


Jackson Racing will only get you 50whp thats with the uprgrade kit.

Don't forget about the Procharger!
Very reliable, very easy to install, very easy to go back to stock if you need to.
Great power gains!

Powerworks has air to water to air aftercooler (to add more boost safely), & if you can find them a pulley kit to increase boost from 10 to 18 psi. ProCharger is good for peak power, but the roots has excellent power deliver for street.
