At one point a company in Europe was testing a dual setup like this that ran the blower to about 3500-4000rpm, then sitched to the turbo. The theory was the blower would build bottom end torque and the blower would carry high end power.

Truth is a properly sized turbo will work just almost as good about every where. As will a supercharger. This Vortech set up is pretty sweet and the room to grow the power is there.

Here's the info onthe reguler non-SVT kit and the SVT kit.

Yes the Vortech is good but the one on ebay is for an SVTF.

I would go with the supercharger, just because they boost the low end power better than a turbo would. I dont know if you can keep your electric turbo if you put on a supercharger.. I have never seen that kind of set up.
