look through the supercharger forum, alot of people here have knowledge about cte and jackson racing eaton type superchargers for linear power, and if you want to go with big power then go with rotrex type chargers so it all comes down to how you want to spend your money and chosing your power is base on your personal preference

to get the same power as the kraftwerks kit, you'll spend more on a ct/jr kit. they have different feel and power delivery though.

The Kraftwerks kit is also designed to produce linear power in a unique and useable way. This results in reduced cylinder pressures, less strain on engine components, and increased reliability. Rotrex superchargers also operate much cooler when compared to turbochargers and other supercharger systems, which reduces the engine’s intake air temperature as well as its risk of detonation.

We have awesome sale pricing on the Kraftwerks kits right now. We also have a JRSC kit in stock as well. Feel free to send me a PM for details.

Plus, Kraftwerks is really, really slow. You'll only beat almost everything on the streets. If thats all you want to do, then maybe the slow KW is for you.

PS: I own a KW.

PPS: It is not slow. The first sentence was a joke. Its all the power I will ever need from this car.

PPPS: Vit has developed a Boost By Gear setup for the car. So traction isn't an issue at all. And he can tune you online. I don't have the BBG yet, but its my next purchase, and it should be beastly. Spinning tires is fun and all, but hooking up is where you'd decimate people from a dig.

Skunk2 header and 70mm exhaust

Boomba motor mounts and fuel rail

Walbro high pressure fuel pump

Grams Wideband

Exedy stage 2 clutch with ACT streetlight flywheel.

Should be putting around 370 whp... At least that what most people get. Pending altitude and such and every car is different too

Do you DD your car? I had an Exedy stage 2 clutch on an Integra once upon a time and it sucked for driving in traffic. It would chatter pretty bad when released slowly with light gas. Is it the same on your Si?
