welcome to the forums gtr....you can go with many choices, if your set on superchargers..then powerworks seems to be the most popular as far as ease of install and reliability, then their is vortech which from what i heard is a bigger pain to install but gives more power, and jackson racing was the first one offered, while very reliable it had the lowest hp/tq gain....it depends on your price allowance and preference...but remember all forced induction can be dangerous for a motor if not properly installed and tuned....good luck

powerworks by far from what i hear. and if its a daily, dont set up boost higher with bigger pulleys or what not. but you still want to get a tune and all that fun stuff. now i do know that a company (not sure which) offers a supercharger with a built in clutch allowing you to disengage the supercharger when you want to save your mpg. you may want to look into that if your daily driving

If I had a Zetec, I'd go with Powerworks.

Powerworks is the way to go. its really reliable and backs a nice bunch. Jackson Racing makes one but its dinky and isnt worth the money. you should also check out the ones by Vortech. C-F-M built a drag car with the Vortech supercharger and it runs 12s. But my money would be with the Powerworks, unless you want some more fun, look into a Turbo.
turbo=more fun {in my book at least}
