The best supercharger on the market in my oppenion is the PowerWorks kit. I have driven one, and riden in 2 other, I have 2 friends with the kit one on a svt, and the other on a zx5 they love the kit. You will not need any upgraded kit for the powerworks sc, out of the box it pushes 12 psi, Its a little more then the vortech but well worth it. Talk to Tony at newedgeperformance.com he can give you the hook up on one.

depends what budget if any you are on. I was alittle constricted so i went with the JRSC, if i had the money i would either get the Vortec or Powerworks, preferibly Powerworks. Cost alittle more but would be worth it.

11 PSI on a Vortech without the intercooler ...................IMO bad Idea. I have heard over and over after 10 PSI you need some sort of I/C to be safe. As for which SC, if you are going to go JRSC but have the money for a Vortech (non-intercooled) why not look at the other kits on the market. I'm not a bandwagon fan of the Power works but I have driven a few and must say compared to my Vortech I liked them alot.

Raise your hand if you are shocked by this


I was thinking this. If you are going to spend all that cash, would that cash put you in the same price range as Tom's Stg1? and if you are looking for the big numbers why not just skip all that and do a turbo.




Yes someone kick me I did say something along the lines of "get a turbo"

Im not going to spend $4000-$5000 on something that will give the the same hp gains as a $500 nos kit.
