Sorry about that but do you think that it would be worth it

the new powerworks supercharger will be using an intercooled M62 for both the zx3 and the svt. you'll probably save more money by waiting for the powerworks supercharger, no guesswork involved, bolts right up, and has decent tuning

how does the powerworks supercharger compare to the vortech with an aftercooler??? there is an obvious difference in design, but which one could produce the most power???

yeah, centrifugal blowers always ended up making more power per lb of boost than roots/screw superchargers. the roots/screw blowers provide more useable torque across the rpm band - that is to say, you get a lot of torque down low because it doesn't have to spool up like a centi blower. the powerworks will have a water to air intercooler similar to the vortech, but instead of sitting where your stock intake box goes, it'll be sandwiched between the blower, which is basically in the same location as the jrsc would go, and the head.

the Centrifugal blowers usually have a higher total output because of the design.
however the powerband is more up top than down low.

however, the Powerworks kit can support 250+fwhp on the zetec with a near linear powerband from idle to redline.


it's a trade off with either.
you have to wait for the power of a Vortech but once it hits is comes in like gang-bangers! :P
a Roots blower will not have the ultimate output of the Centrifugal unit but it will have a much more usable powerband.
