What do you have as far as suspension? If it consists of Control arms, subframe connectors, springs, k member etc you should be gold. I would do a H/C/I combo. Also set of long tube headers, x pipe, exhaust. Then if you have cash leftover get a kenne belle or vortech supercharger. I personally would get the kenne belle if you have the cash.

Well i would say if you want something that will add more power, and a little more effiecient. I would say get a turbo charger. But if you want something a little easier to install i would get a supercharger. Turbonetics has the best supercharger kit i in my opinion. And for supercharger kenne bell. But if it came down to it and they were both the same to install i would pick a turbo anyday.

Most definitely. You would need a turbo kit, some nice turbo headers, exhaust, but you would need to upgrade your fuel system, injectors, maf, throttle body, fuel pressure regulator, fuel pump, rails. You should be able to do 12's no problem. Don't quote me on this but i think depending on your mods you can gain anywhere from 9 -15 horses for each pound of boost. So if you're running about 12psi with all the supporting mods you should gain well over 100 horses.
