Stage 1 or 2 COMPTECH supercharger RELIABILITY?

So I've got a couple questions before dumping a huge load of money on a supercharger kit from comptech.

How reliable is the stage 1 or the stage 2 comptech supercharger kit on the 08 civic si?

Do I need 3 inch piping exhaust or is 2.5 inch piping exhaust good enough?

I have injen CAI and Vibrant catless header so no need to tell me about intakes and headers.

How much faster os stage 1 compared to stage 2 at the 1/4 mile drag strip? Post times.

How reliable is the stage 1 or 2 supercharger kit as in how good quality are the belts, tensioners, bolts, pullys mechanical things, the supercharger itself?

Can a stage 1 supercharger kit with bolt ons defeat a stock evo or sti?

******ANSWER THIS MAIN QUESTION>>> What are the major issues people are facing when having the stage 1 or stage 2???? i'm not talking about the installation, i want to know about any issues after its been installed.....LIST REASONS WHY.

ALL YOUR FEEDBACK IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Are the comptech supercharger kits prone to blowing up the engine with stock internals???

Is stage 2 too much boost for the stock internal k20z3???

Hey bro, well i would try and search first, not to be a ****. but just a quick testament to its reliabilty is that ive had mine CT supercharged for a lil over a year with no problems at all. The first 7-8 months it was a 1 stage setup with the 3.6" pulley, no problems there,and now for about 2-3 months im on the 3.15" pulley(stg 2) on 9psi of boost and not one problem. Im also still on my stock clutch but i dont religously take my car to the dragstrip. All in a nut shell its very reliable and the car will become really fun with the added power. To answer all your other questions u should just search, 8thcivic has a vast amount of info with alot of knowledgeable members on here.

Come on man..

All of us are different drivers, you cant expect to come and ask a question like that when Bobby over there might drive his car like his grandma, while im redlining each damn gear... And still in the end, every engine is different, one might be weaker, or stronger then another one..So good luck with your answer. Im at 4psi of boost, shooting for 9psi soon, sometimes you just gotta look at the mirror and say, who gives a ****, lets have fun while it lasts.

Come on man..come on! Get with it chump.
