    I don't know if you know, or if this is a joke, but the message from Elite Vette regarding the use of a supercharger is 80% incorrect!

    I am heading up to Tenn on a recruiting trip... I will not be able to check this till late Sunday at best. Just be very careful if you listen to 95% of the people on here about the Superchargers.... They are great I love the way the sound.. Although the supercharges are ran off the belt which means no matter what your cars is having wear and tear done to it. If you use a smaller pulley and you have 6-8 pounds of boost running to your car you will see the small gain in horsepower. You car will be around 410 hp - 440hp at the flywheel. Faster than a stock Z06 up to 2004.

    You will spend at less 5 k on this set up. (It is not worth the horse power) The supercharges will give you a 3 years 36,000 warranty... After a few years you may have to have the supercharger rebuilt... If I were to buy one I would have a Vortech.. That is what I had on my Saleen...

    Also to include depending on what supercharger you get you will need to have 2 fuel pumps, new larger fuel injectors, boost retard and boost gauge at the minimum... You will be giving up your MPG if you run 10-14 pound pulley which will give you around 150 + horse power depending on your pulley size.

    I use to hate NOS cars... Although after spending 25k on building a motor that was designed to king of the streets... There will always be someone out there that will spend more and have a faster car. You want 500 hp on a stock motor... You want it to be safe, if you do not want to lose your car from being a daily driver than buy NOS!!!! I am not a vendor on here selling a package... I am someone who has learned from my own mistakes in life... Think about it before listening to people who (A) never owned a Supercharged car, and (B) vendors who are selling products.... Best of luck
