Question Jackson Racing Supercharger

Im looking into the Jackson Racing Supercharger kit.

Just wondering if anyone has any problems with the kit? "ie need extra parts missing stuff"

If it was easy to install or if you should bring it into the shop and get someone to do it?

What kinda powe gain's are you looken at? "the dyno's they show on the website are one thing"

What quarter mile times you looken at with the supercharger?

thanks

From what I have seen the JRSC only provides moderate power gains, around 195 -215 bhp or 195 - 200 whp and around 170 to 190 btq. These numbers should put the car into the low to mid 14s; if your a good driver you may see high 13s. The kit can be installed in a weekend with basic hand tools and if your mechanically inclined you should have no trouble. Not sure about any other required or missing parts. The JRSC has pretty good potential, you can install a different pully to boost the pressure which will add even more hp, plus being a whipple style system it will have great reliability. And you cant beat the price either.

I am going to get one myself as I am not looking to smoke Vette's or 300HP WRX's. Your probably like me looking for some decent gains out of something reliable and relatively easy to install and not have to rob a bank to be able to get one. I have some experience with supercharged cars as I use to own a 2000 Grand Prix GTP and I had swapped the blower pulley and got a lot more power out of it. Not having an intercooler does kinda suck but if you don't go too crazy with it (IE. install a 2 1/2" blower pulley = blown engine waiting to happen) you should be ok and be happy with it.

Hey, I used to have a 2000 GTP too. That was my first new car. Had it modded nicely, too, but sold it a couple of years ago. Great car; I still miss it from time to time.

I have the JRSC, and for the money I spent for everything I could have put anither grand with it and got Tom's turbo kit. I didn't because I want to be safe, I know that if I had gotten a turbo I would eventually over boost the turbo and blow it up. I do however reccomend that if you get one have it installed, that way if they [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)] it up they will have to fix it. Also, while it's in the shop go ahead and have a clutch and flywheel put in along with the Focus-Central orp. Then go to your local muffler shop and get a resonator, this is a must because your cat will eventually stop up. I got some gauges (air/fuel, boost, and egt), that I reccomend you to do so you can monitor your cars performance. Last, when everything is said and done get the ecu tuned and do away with the power card that comes with the kit, alot of people have problems with misfiring, I am one of them people. I am planning to get mine tuned this weekend, and if you like I will email you amnd tell you how it done on the dyno.

SuperchargedSVT, PLease post your results here ... there are more than a few of us interested on your results. The Jackson is reasonably priced and is the first one out. I did not like the Vortech as it relocate the battery to the bumper, the procharger is not ready for the SVT yet and the intercooler is located way too low. So, what else is there? Back to the JRSC which is easiest to install ..... I heard about the check engine light and the over rich problems, Other than that, has it been mostly reliable?
