Comments: Beautiful kit and puts out excellent power. Probibly one of the best designed kits I have seen. The instructions (even though I really didn't use them that much lol) were very precise and to the point. The parts were quality pieces and worth every penny I paid for the kit. Excellent customer support too! I can't say enough good words about this kit. Honestly there isn't a thing I would change with this kit, aside from throwing in an O2 extension with the kit, it is perfect. It is a little pricey, but considering what I've paid for other things it is worth every single penny spent.

Kit Name: Vortech Aftercooled Supercharger (zetec)
Cost Rating 1-10: 7
Support Rating 1-10: 6
Quality Rating 1-10: 7
Price: $3900
Comments: It is a nice kit and put out good power. Installation is definately not for the easily discouraged or the non-mechanically inclined. The instructions are to the point but I did notice mistakes in them when doing the install. A battery relocation to the trunk should have been included in the kit rather then installing it behind the bumper. The air to water to air aftercooler is a very nice setup, although they could have went with a slightly larger heat exchanger for the bumper. Tapping a fuse for the water pump was also kind of cheesy, but that was easily fixed. All in all it is a good kit with good power. For the cost of the kit you should not have to make any modifications to make it more user friendly. With a few minor modifications though it could be a much better kit.
