    Ok...which Super Charger?

    I sold my home in NJ and I am moving to Anthem Arizona at the end of June to my new home. I now have cash to buy a Super Charger and thought I had a choice of 3 (DR, Trilogy or a KB) now I see there is a ProCharger setup so my questions are...
    1) Are the power outputs about the same? 450ish RWHP?

    2) Ease of installation.

    3) Price

    I am a mechanic by trade and I know superchargers so you won't have to dumb it down.
    I am now reviewing past threads but feel free to enlighten me.

    This will be interesting, but FYI there are a little more than the ones you mentioned. DR Air-to-water/Vortec, DR air-to-air/Vortec, Kenny Brown Marauder-S conversion/Procharger, Trilogy-Roots, FIT/Procharger, and there is also a Turbo Kit that no one has posted that they have, but its out there. I'd go and get the numbers from the respective vendors, because this is a very touchy subject.

    Here are two links that I think are relavent: I also think that it's best to keep in mind that PEAK HP isn't the only thing that matters when it comes to any modification making your car faster, since the power levels at 3,000 RPM's and 4,000 RPM's are just as much a BIG factor in propeling your car down the track or stretch of highway (if not MORE so) than PEAK power numbers are....

    Look around at all of the threads pertaining to superchargers (avoid the arguments).
    Ask the members who have them (preferably by PM).
    Choose which one will keep a smile on your face (that will be the tough decision).
    Let us know about it, too (we will be happy with what ever one you choose).

    Just my .02 and then some.

    Call 1-800-FORD-788 and press "1". Have the last 6 of your VIN handy. You will get the numbers for FREE. You'll pay $$$ for the certificate.

    MM traded in 8/9/13 @ 128909 miles. It was fun for almost 8 years. I met airmercpun on 1/17/14. He was the new owner of my former ride. -Now gone.

    Update: back in the game with a late build 03 GMGS with some MM add ons like Escape audiophile radio w/Sirius sat radio, rear sway bar, catback exhaust, and header panel.

    See my garage file for part numbers and whatnot.

    IMHO, this site- the members that I chat with- and the ones that I now Hang with- are like my 2nd family. There is such an ongoing welcome feeling here that even members who don't or no longer own the MM can feel.

    Not fair how you all have all those choices for S/C but us (Crown Vic people) only have a few!

    Updates and corrections to what's posted ^ there:

    No such thing as a Kenny Brown supercharger kit, however, the Marauder S uses a Vortech V2 in S trim.

    Member "Turbo Ernie" is installing his PTK turbo charger kit as I type this. I have it on good word that another member here is also buring the midnight oil with a turbo kit, but haven't confirmed this.

    www.VTengines.com is alive and well.

    Careful you don't spray any more ether on this fire.

    From the sounds of what I have read, all of the superchargers are good... though perhaps at different things.

    I can't imagine you'll get much new information without really stirring up a fuss... so I'd review the existing threads & talk with the vendors. Seems to me that several have an excellent reputation for working with Marauder drivers, and they haven't earned that by just selling stuff without making sure its the right stuff!

    Best of luck & have fun!
