Cool Best Supercharger?

I'm about to buy a supercharger.

I was thinking: http://www.focussport.com/supercharger.htm

The intercooled one.

Will I notice a huge difference? I'm going to order it in a week or so.

Any better superchargers?

Good luck with that. I wish I had the money to afford one. There are many others but this one looks like one of the better ones to me. You could also check out these.

( This is one I was thinking about. But I am probably going to go turbo with mine.)

The best supercharger is really based on your budget and your needs for your car, so that is kind of a loaded question.

Powerworks IMO, because it comes with all the bells and whistles. If you haven't purchased other mods such as 65mm TB, CAI, Intake Mani, and chip I would say this is the best choice because it comes with all that...Again IMO.

Make sure you have enough money for an exhaust system though, best gains would be seen replacing header all the way back.

Last but not least is replacing your rear mount, if you throw the SC on you might rip the OEM mount (and a bunch of other stuff) to shreads.

~6,000 bucks and a long weekend and you will have one KA focus.

it all depends on how much u want want a spend. if u dont have alot of money the jrsc is great, and u can up grade that thing alot.

but the other are good if u got money 2 spend. they are better in power but hard 2 up grade them.

for im im putting down at much at the powerworks and im not cooled yet.

so good luck on ur fi

If you dont have to deal with emmissions testing go turbo, huge torque and highly upgradable.

BUT if I had to choose a SC, it would be Vortec.

Procharger maybe, but tuning needs to be addressed.

Powerworks costs way too much for a intercooled eaton SC.

JRSC is limited to how much power it can make, due to cooling the charge air, but it is a very good and cheap way to become FI'd.
