Supercharger

so i was just wondering should i get an aftermarket supercharger and redo the motor or should i just try to find a wrecked SS and slap it into my LT? if i decide to get an aftermarket one, where could i find a good setup?
thanks.

the best way to say this to you is,you might end up spending 6grand,to me you need to rebuild the motor first then you can supercharge it or turbo it.Most will say you can do it by just doing some internal work,but that's unbalancing.Might as well do the whole motor build.

Well, on the flip side, you can bolt on a turbo or super and not do internals, if you are running like 2-3PSI of boost, but it's hardly performance then

trade it in... get an SS. itll be faster look better, have more accesories inside, like steering wheel controls, will be chaper, less work. And you can probably get one dirt cheap since gm is ready to collapse, they dieing for money.

first off you can do it without rebilding a whole motor and just some internal work and its not unbalancing. secondly you could do either a turbo or supercharger on stock internals and run like 8-10psi and still be safe. and thirdly, everyone could all go buy SS's to be "fast" but whats the fun in your car if everyone does that? keep your car. besides, you can take a 2.2 or a 2.4 and make it faster then an SS. especially the superchrager ones.

you can find a wrecked one to pull the supercharger out of. that would be the cheapest route for that. or if you wanted to turbo then check out garrets website

I prefer superchargers, but I would cast my vote for turbo for ease of installation and efficiency. If you get an S/C (especially off of a wrecked SS) then you're in for a lot of custom work.

My turbo lag is your courtesy head start.

yea but why go to a smaller motor if you can fully build the 2.2?

exactly. it doesnt make sense that gm boosted the 2.0 when they have a 2.4 thats available. keep your car and build it. i would recommend turbocharging it after you build it over supercharging it.

motor-2.2L, intake-gmpp, exhaust-2.25" piping into 4 inch tip

---i ran a 10.4 in the 1/8 before the intake and new exhaust.

you guys make me laugh. force induct the motor without any motor build is going to **** your shit up. no offense all but yes you should buy the ss being you can find a mid mileage SS S/c for about 10g's. Hell thats probably less then you paid for your new LT.. and it does make since GM boosted the 2.0 if you read up on your shit you will find out why 2.0's LOVE to be boosted.

you COULD do it, but it sounds like you dont wana build the motor, which leads me to think your not really willing to spend what you will need to. With that said, you will be replacing parts as they brake in time...reliable? no. the SS? yes.
