Most practical SC kit out there?

Like it reads. When I say practical I mean in regards to normal day-to-day driveability and ease of installation. Meaning you dont have to modify the car beyond being able to put it back stock if need be, atleast on anything big.

I've had my eye on the PowerWorks kit for a while and am considering saving up for it. It generates so much more power than the Jackson, according to advertisements, I would like feedback from anyone who has there SVT SCed. Seems like with what you can spend on all the bolt ons for keeping the car NA you can get way more power for only a bit more money going FI. Thanx for everyones comments and suggestions.

Really. hmm, only place I have seen online where you can buy it is on the CFM website. They have a picture there and it takes up the entire space where the battery and stock air box sit. Where does the battery go when you have that setup??

The powerworks is the easiest to install, with the least modification.

You kidding right ? You can install the ProCharger in about half the time

I'm actually still deciding between the powerworks and procharger myself, but they both seem like good, practical kits that make good power. I guess it's just a matter of where you want the power, from what I hear the procharger doesnt really do a whole lot till like 4k rpm (please someone correct me if I'm wrong), and I'd imagine the power works would get going in lower rpms.

Both kits are good for daily driving right? I mean they aren't to crazy to handle under normal drving conditions. Thats what I want, to be able to have a focus daily driver than can smoke a normal SRT4 but still be able to drive smoothly the rest of the time.

Also Tom, with the prochager kit what do you do with the battery? I would think I would want the cooler setup with it, which someone said thats what takes up the space of the battery. Thanx for all the response so far.
