Ok now i need to make a decision.

Ok thank you guys so much for putting up with my stupid questions and stuff i really appreciate it, but now im in a pickle. i have a choice between a supercharger and a turbo. i was looking at that roush turbo for sale on our forum and i was considering that but then i ran across this.

http://allentown.craigslist.org/pts/1366241852.html

Now would that fit in an svt and besides a tune i want to run at low pressure could i be on the stock headers and injectors? you guys know better than me so thats why im asking. Thanks again.

well you wont be able to run a turbo with the stock header.

but turbo would be a better route.

supercharger if you dont want alot of power, and just something fun to daily drive.

and that dude on craigslist pulled the whole "previous owner said./.." line. which is usually scam city. so thats a toss up if hes legit

You are showing a SVT , but the jrsc is for a ZX3 so wont work , The Roush turbo would need some changes made to the piping to work on a SVT

turbo will help you with mpg's if you get the right trim and stay out of boost.

Turbo is better for power sc not so much and produces a lot of heat.

Edit: btw if you plan on purchasing something to this nature, buy on here where people actually know what they are selling.

its not really worth it till you get boosted. you seem like ur shallow on the cash flow, so you might wanna piece together some parts and then get tuned.

but to answer the 2nd part, it comes with instructions.. and the handheld hooks up thru the obd port
