yea my coolant was a little low and that would make sense about the blown head gasket because I can barely get enough compression to start the car. How much should that cost for repair??

roughly $600 plus in labor, plus cost of gaskets, tax, shop supplies, EPA fees, etc...

might not be directly cause of the supercharger because I haven't even been getting into boost. I was waiting till I got it tuned.
