Jackson Racing Supercharger: (CARB certified for emissions)
New for about $2300
About 150HP/130TQ at the wheels.

Buying used is OK but ask questions.
Why are they selling ?
How many miles ?
What is included with the used kit(Chip, ECU flasher, belts, etc.) ?
Any Instructions provided ?
Is there any signifigant wear or damage ?

Also, no drilling or tapping of the engine block required for oil return like some kits.
It's a pretty straight forward bolt on with basic tools.

^^which is not bad for people who are on budget and want a really reliable sc. Plus then throw on the other bolt ons and your running close to 200 horsepower at the flywheel, probably around 170 at the wheels.

Just shop around. You can find the JRSC for about $2200-2300.
Check with the FF sponsors or google 'Jackson Racing Super Charger'
You can also now get the Ford Racing big boost kit for around $400-500 which also comes with the ECU reflash. So, the tuning is provided for you. You mail them your ECU and they reflash it and mail it back to you.
This would be the way to go if you are looking at the JRSC. Install the big boost kit while you're installing the stock JRSC kit.

fyi-
I looked around and the cheapest I found was $2270 ==>HERE

Not sure if that's with shipping included because if you click the Buy now with Paypal or Visa, there's no shipping cost. Total cost is $2270.
