Hey all, I am looking at getting a supercharger and I just can't decide what to get. I have a deal right now where I can get a centrifugal vortech/paxton that'll put out around 470 rwhp for about 3k. The cheapest I can find a screw type Whipple or something is for around 4500. I used to have a Lightning with an Eaton screw type. I really love the supercharger whine and everything about screw type and I have never heard a stang or anything with a centrifugal. I know that you cannot really go past 450-475 hp on a GT without needing extra mods so this would be right up in the perfect zone.
I have two requests, one, what are your guys opinions? Also, does anyone have a clip or youtube vid of a stang at WOT with a centrifugal. I just don't know if I should wait and save up some more or buy the vortech/paxton right now.

I don't think you will be dissappointed by getting the paxton...but I think you should consider what your final goals may be? And make sure you don't buy something that may limit you for future power potential...
I overlayed two dyno curves, and a twin screw running 8 psi with peak numbers of 425 hp / 410 tq has more power below 5000 RPM then the Brenspeed Paxton kit. Basically, you can have more "power under the curve" with lower PSI on a twin screw.

This will always boil down to application and personal preference! I say Whipple ...why because I have one -so many of the opinions you get will be biased. Regardless of what your choice is you will be happy and welcome to FI in advance! J
