Which superchargers work with the stock intake?

Like the title says, I'd like to keep the stock intake and supercharge an SVTF. I'm looking at the PC pics, and it's not possible --but I *might* be able to do so with a PWSC or an JRSC --anyone done it?

And on a related note, which cams are best for a blown SVT?

Most superchrges have their own replacment intake. If you want to use your original air intake , it probably would be very easy with just a slight modification with some hoses and couplers. It will vary dependent on the SC.

If you want to keep the stock intake then only the ProCharger or Vortech will work

I would go turbo

I'm going for an OEM+ look in the bay. A turbo would require getting a lot of RS parts to use an airbox and factory-ish manifold.

If your looking for just the airbox and snorkel the JRSC will work as well.
