Get a Jackson racing supercharger. Seen used near your budget and you won't have to worry about breaking parts.

If they don't make that one for my car are there any other superchargers I could get?

They don't make any superchargers for our cars. If you only want to spend 1500 on a kit you need to look for a used one going cheap but u still would be looking at about 2000.
New turbos can cost 1500 by themselves so thats not an outlandish price.
Kits like Fswerks and Topspeed are made to fit and perform with great quality and detail.
When i first built my custom kit i used a cheap-o-turbo and it only lasted a year on 8psi! So you really get what you pay for.
My advice is save a little more money, go quality because you have a daily driven car.

Don't boost if 1500 is your max budget, 1500 in some cases barely buys the turbo and/or manifold.

In all seriousness, you boost your car for 1500 you'll end up fixing all kinds of BS and at least another 1500 overtime fixing all the first 1500 mistakes.

Thanks for all the tips. I'm gonna just wait and save more and then probably go with the stage 1&2 from FSWERKS.
