Okay, forgive me if this has been talked about. My internet connection is 24.0 kbps, so searching the web for hours just isn't my idea of fun.

I am looking at superchargers and was curious as to what internals are needed or advised to get when one does a supercharger. I have been reading a lot about Turbos and the safety involved with your internals on those but what about superchargers? Do the internals need to be looked at as well when one wants to go this route? I am not looking for too much more then 400 hp to the wheels preferrably but I don't want to have to always be fixing a lot either. In other words if I go FI I want to do it right the first time and not be like Going Deep did with his Turbos.

Thanks for your help and again I'm sorry if this has already been asked.

So are you saying I would be better off just getting a turbo kit and setting it to it's base settings? Would this be better for the engine? But don't I have a better chance of hurting the engine this way?

Okay, well my ultimate goal was to be super quick off the line. I am going to get the 3.9 final drive but I thought a supercharger would have low end power vs a turbo's high end power.

I was looking at Vortechs supercharger and HKS's supercharger. It sounded like HKS's is made to run off stock parts so any upgrades I do could do more harm then good. So I was leaning more towards Vortechs. I guess what I'm trying to ask is would it be a good idea to do internals with a supercharger?

So if I am spending the money to do the internals I would be better off just saving and getting a TT system instead? Wouldn't I have better acceleration power if I had a supercharger though? I don't have much need for top end power, I just want to be able to smoke people off the line. I guess I should look for what makes the best torque gains though on the lower RMP band. I guess I have a lot of studying to still look into. Thanks for everyones replies.

That's a good idea. I'll see what other SC'd owners say. And yeah I don't really plan on stopping with just a CH'r. If it can be done, I want it basically, except Nitrous. :biggrin:
