I need FI advice..

Hey guys here is where Iím at. I just got my 03 SVTF around 4 months ago it has 80k on it. It had a Borla cats back and thatís about it. So far I have done the following mods Jays Racing 2 1/2 inch High flow cat, CFM 2 1/2 inch Stainless Flex pipe, Custom intake with a k&n filter, CFM 67mm Throttle Body, MSD Coil pack and 8.5 wires, Predator tuned by Tom, Steeda Tri-Ax Shifter with steeda knob, Eibach Sport-System, VF-Engineering Lower Engine Torque Mount. As you can see in my sig I like boosted cars so the focus kind of feels like it is missing something. I found a few different supercharger kits on here and FJ but Iím not sure witch one would be best for me the JRSC with BBK pulley, vortech, and a procharger kit all the kit are around the same price range. The focus is my daily driver, Iím not really looking to make a monster just give the car a little more power. Yet still remain dependable and reliable as my daily driver. Please let me know what you guys think my best choice would be. Thanks.

Either procharger or vortech, procharger is alot easier to install than the vortech and you can add a FMIC to look badass. THe JRSC wont give you alot of power when compared to vortech and procharger.

the JRSC is popular because its reliable, semi cheap and super easy to install, personally id get that. but the procharger is an awesome choice, more power and still not too hard to install.

either way, IT WILL BE FUN! :)

yeah i seen both kits and have talk to both of the guys selling them, just not sure which one i want the JRSC is a better price but the procharger will make more power. the main thing here is i'm looking for something thats not going to be a pain in the ass yet give me some more power. i have thought about a turbo but the price is kind of high. plus i really don't know anything about turbo's and i know superchargers. thanks for the inputs guys

Well if the price is only going to be a couple hundred bucks more why not just spend the little extra cash and get the Procharger? In the end I'm sure you'd be more happy that way.

i hear that, but it's almost a grand after all is said and done. but i'm still think about both right now. i just got a e-mail from tom he said that i would have to get a wideband, j&s, and his tune all together that is around another 1200 buck or more. so who know what i'm going to do. not sure i want to spend 3+grand on my beater(daily driver). either way i'm going to have to talk to tom about my current tune the car has some hesitation when it's cold and some small issues with the idle. thanks for the input guys.
