Which supercharger?

If money was not an issue what supercharger kit provides the best gains? I would like to hear more from people whoi have them installed or work on them for real #'s. I dont want the numbers off a websit cause I can find those in a min. I want to know if those are accurate numbers and what the real numbers are for the different kits. ie: vortech, JR, Procharger and others u may know of. Thanks.

There are people who want a supercharger out there for various reasons. I'm moving to an emissons control state in 2 yrs some superchargers are CARB approved. I'm going to go with the Powerworks when it comes out for the SVT. I dont know if it will be the best in the world but the numbers are what I want, installation should be ok and I want to install it myself because I like learning about my car.

Anyhow, I'm no expert to say the least but why dont we just let the guy/gal just ask their question without a bunch of folks coming on here with the age old 'why dont you just go turbo' response. His sig states that he's from CA where he needs CARB approval therefore the easiest FI application would be a supercharger. I'm not trying to rag anyone I just like reading these posts and they are often turned into trubo vs. supercharger which is not much of a debate in emmission control states.

Rural TN has emmission's tests

Well so much for trying to slide by with a race header and a high flow aftermarket cat

I reckon I'll have to move to Mississippi
