    You can get it for about $6000, this is a intercooled unit, that puts out 390hp at the rear wheels and this 2004 Escalade is a 2wd 5.3 Liter motor, not the 6.0.

    I love the eyes of surprise when I get a guy or girl (I'm an equal opportunity racer) when they get next to me and they give it gas to get in front of me and I push the pedal a little more and they push a little more and then I just stomp it... THAT'S WORTH IT....

    FORGOT...

    My Escalade with the Supercharger has a California Air Resources Board approval, that means that it passes smog in CA. or should I say KALIFORNIA

    Because the supercharger is an EATON unit, it's used by most car manufacturers because of the durabilty, also this unit starts adding HP at less than 1500 rpm and it uses 1.5hp to run. I got a 3yr/36000 drivetrain warranty for $200 more.

    Also my MPG on the highway at 65 went up to 21mpg from 17mpg.

    that surprises me. you must push your escalade a lot harder than i push mine. i think it handles as well or better than any other suv of equal or slightly smaller size. obviously you can't compare it to some of these new 'suvs' which are just station wagons a little higher off the ground (like the SRX). but all and all, i think it handles really well. maybe i just got lucky with the right setup on mine.
