I did a search and didn't find a LOT on superchargers. What is a ball-park for one intalled? I'm guessing $4000 - $5000???

I don't want to install one, but I am very intrigued by them. Anyone running one?

T-Dizzy has one installed on his EXT. IIRC he made 550hp on the dyno.

I been looking at them. If I could I would go with the Magna Charger (http://magnacharger.com/sc-gmtrucksuv.htm) A local shop will charge me $6,300 installed (polished)

The place I work sells them. Not sure on the brand but they go for around $4,000 not installed!

That's not too bad of a price. Does it include a reprogramming? I remember having the speed limiter removed that was fun. :thumbsup:

Not that im aware of. I just got a basic price since im not ready to blow that kind of money in a super charger.

Don't waste you money. They are the worst (or should I say ) the best heat sinks around. Why do you think that the stock intake is plastic? It is what all performance cars use today. Go SC either a Vortex or a Procharger. Not as cool looking buy much much better performance. Unles you live in Alaska.:histeric:

I really find this thread amusing. What you are getting is a lot of money spent for very little. If you don't redo the bottom end of your motor and cut the compression while making everything stronger, you can't have any substantial boost. Under 12 lbs of boost is truly meaningless and a stock bottom end won't take any more, if that much. I've been through it. True it will sound like a blower, but it won't give enough extra performance to merit the cost.

I don't know what everyone is smoking but Magnacharger makes a awesome setup! I used a radix on my 04 Silverado SS and the extra 100 - 200hp really woke the truck up. Very noticable. Can't wait to supercharge the 07 esc.
And it has been very reliable too over the last 30k miles. I'm very hard on all my vehicles.

A supercharger is a neat gadget that 6g's will buy. but without proper headwork, headers, and bottomend beef-up it's not at it's potential. I believe in "do it right or leave it be"
