Just wanted to get opinions on supercharger or turbo kit for my current set up between these 3 kits kraftwerks, ct-e, full race turbo

current mods:
k20z3
Ebay headers
Skunk2 76mm exhaust system
Custom 3" intake
Rdx 410cc injectors
Skunk2 fuel rail
Skunk2 72mm manifold
Zdx throttle body + spacer
Supertech valves, springs 100lb, titanium retainers
3 angle valve job port & polished
wiseco pistons low compression 87.5 1.5 over CR brian cower rods 800 hp rated I believe

Many more mods too lazy to list sending from my phone

All thoughts and opinions welcome

Your choices are interesting....your gonna use baby blowers on a built motor? And then your going to use tiny injectors on a built motor?

Why a 3 angle vs getting a full cnc port?
Why a junk 2 mani vs custom hi flow plenum mani?

All that money running through an eBay header?

Your list sounds like very little research has been done with no concrete goals established.

My opinion is set a power goal - set the use - set the budget

Once you do that you can actually get some opinions going. Right now I would say it's a Mickey mouse setup for a street car from the parts list.

Yea it's a bit sloppy had no interest in going FI in the beginning hence the 410cc injectors and the eBay headers we're just a mistake but like I posted before I have more parts on hand I have 1000cc injectors stock mani ported I'm going with those FI choices because I don't want any to crazy but you did bring up a lot of good points thanks

At this point, going forced induction with whatever option you choose is almost better to start over since you are going in a completely new direction than when you started. back to the drawing board. narrow down which of the three kits you want, then choose the supporting mods around that main power plant choice. IMO its just better to build the supporting mods around your main power plant.

With a built low comp block turbo seems to make the most sense. If you were stock compression I'd definitely say the Kraftwerks kit would be the best option. I'm running a kw kit on stock block power and reliability has been good.

I agree with Ragin, if you've got upgraded valvetrain and block components you should look into going turbo. You'd have the potential for some serious power. Plus it sounds like you already have some supporting mods for that kind of setup like 1000cc injectors and SK2 fuel rails.

A supercharger benefits from being less heat and more reliable, but you'll be limited in how much power you can make down the road. Still not a bad option though. We have killer pricing on the Kraftwerks kits! :thumbsup:
