I dont really have a budget to be honest. Ive had the car for 6 years and am just starting to mod it. Its one of those things where Im going to have this car for a very long time so the money really isnt an issue. Over time of course.

it's when the car goes too lean, and when that happens you breaks rods and sling them through the oil pan and such lol

Gotcha, Ill be running low boost then. Once I get going with everything Ill probably start a build thread. Im hoping to order my suspension within the next week or two and do the brakes in the mean time. Let the good times roll!

You will easily get 45-50. My car before the supercharger might have dynoed 230 or so. And with the supercharger I'm at 350 with over 100k miles and not one problem. Just make sure you take the car to a reputable shop. Also you can't run under drive pulleys with a supercharger so of you're serious about the s/c don't spend the money on them

SteedaBrandon: Thanks if I need anything I will let you know.

MCxQubed: Yea I dont plan on running the inderdrive pulleys with the s/c. Ive been reading a lot of threads and think im gonna go with the procharger. Although, I think its basically just the drive pulley that wont work. The underdrive set comes with water pump and alternator pulleys that should still be able to be used with a s/c.
