I am looking to install a supercharger & I am aware that 2K US dollars is a ballpark range for pricing. It's the *sarcasm* small price to pay for your addictions. What I'd be curious about is how much tech support, howto's, tweaking, etc... you'd get to do during & after the installation. I like monkeying with things too much so fine-tuning is what I like to do.

How much of a "pro" do you need to be to get a supercharger in and fine tuning it to get the max efficiency/potential ratio?

What company has the overall "essence" of supercharger down?

I might end up with a vortech but I am still open to other manufactures if they have a better overall quality rating.

Wow. Another Fresnan. Small world. I'm near old-town Clovis, but I used to live at Cedar/Olive. Maybe I've seen you around? Who knows.


Anyway, wuteva...

I'd get it installed at a tuner shop. It takes someone that has done it numerous times. Its not like putting a pc together or something.

I believe the Vortech and Jackson Racing Superchargers go for about $3 to $3.5K for new.
You might be able to find one used for $2K.

As far as install, the JC looks straight forward and the Vortech requires relocating the battery and not sure what else.

But to assure that the install is done properly, I would take it to a tuner shop like Infra3sv said.

ok so I'll slap on another K, why the hell not! It'll take me a little more time to save up but well worth it in the end. Is there a way ("www.lalalala.com") to find a decent mod shop in my local area? I have yet to find a club in my area as well... Not surprising for FRESNO, the armpit of CA!

Where will be a good place to start looking that will show who's who in my land?

INSTALLER

[thumb] The shop I'm going to use (jackson Racing) is located in wesminister, ca but thats the closest one I know of next to you...... of corse thats only if you get the jackson racing one, I MIGHT get the Vortech Supercharger its like 3,500 installed so i think that vortech sould be the way to go, I just don't know of any install centers for the vortec kit, and the vortech kit is not evan available yet, I called about 2 days ago about it, (I CAN'T WAIT)
