To Supercharge or not to Supercharge? that is the quesiton!

so as many of you know i have a few superchargers. in fact, i have 2 for the SVT and are both JRSC's. one has a BBK, the other doesnt. both are in good condition. now i was going to sell them, but i'm debating using them on my newly acquired SVT. I picked up an SVT w/ only 39,xxx miles on it! all original, and the SVT is COMPLETELY STOCK w/ the exception of a spec 2 clutch/flywheel combo. Now, i kinda wanna boost it again, as i've driven in plenty of SVT's that are supercharged, now i know the powerworks is by the far the best, but i have these kits ready to go! I mean, they make the FWD cars usless in 1st and 2nd anyways! So, should i boost it? or keep the car stock w/ as low miles as it has and use it as a dd, then boost another SVT when i get a chance? and if so, use the BBK? or the Stock JRSC one?

lemme know what you think!!

MLB

*E-twisting your arm* just DO IT!!! You know it can handle it. It is just a supercharger nothing else *giggles and whispers under my breath* for now. What else do I have to do here? E-break your legs till you finally decide? C'mon you just know in the end we will have a "listen to MLB's whine vid" thread lol .

I think all your options suck , If your going to add boost why waste your time on your listed options

Also in my opinion the pw is second best

Why supercharge? Turbo the damn thing. You'll have one or 12 for sale here pretty soon lol. Just use one of those. You just dont seem like the kind of guy that would go half way like that. Not bad mouthing the sc, I have one, but I think you'll want more.
