Default Recommended supercharger setup?

Hello Everyone,

I was wondering what are the ups and downs of both the stillen kit and the gtm kit

I have been researching and from what I can gather is that with the stillen kit, in order to make the advertised power, you will over spin the supercharger vs the gtm kit where that wont happen

Can anyone confirm what I have found and possibly inform me about both kits in further detail?

I want to go with the gtm kit but because of carb laws, I would prefer it if I didnt have to pay extra for a smog check(if you know what i mean). The only thing I dont like about the stillen kit is that it makes the engine bay look flashy, I like the clean look of the engine bay as is but I can live with it because I dont look at my engine bay to often.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

OK, let me be clear. The GTM/Stillen kit is the greatest thing since the invention of the automobile whilst the Stillen/GTM kit is an utter piece of crap, not worthy to wipe my posterior with. The Stillen/GTM kit is constructed of the highest quality material where as the GTM/Stillen kit is just thrown together with whatever they had around the shop that day. The GTM/Stillen kit will net you around 500 hp easy but the Stillen/GTM kit will actually rob you and leave you with less power than stock. Don't listen to the GTM/Stillen fanboi's, they are paid to lie about their product. If you don't listen to me, you are probably a nitwit/nin-com-poop and don't even deserve the quality associated with the Stillen/GTM kit....good day!

LOL not sure the guy above me is serious or not, But WHERE did or WHO told you, You had to over spin the Stillen Sc to make the advertised power, That is a BS statement, Their tune is the issue, My kit out of the box 9-10 PSI made 412 WHP, Advertised power,, Just make sure you have the facts right, GTM is a good kit, Still not sold on the MAF location ( Heard some things from some tuners)- I have seen 1 Stillen boom story and that guys was running headers( Not recommended) and a handful of GTM boom stories,

If it where me, I think a changed my mind from before and would have went the way I did, Stillen, Carb legal and will make good power. Myself and EVOkiller are push these to 500WHP or trying anyway, LOL

if you're prepared to spend the extra $$ to upgrade the inferior parts that come with the Stillen kit, then go that way. If i had to do it over again, i most certainly would have gone a different route.

Yes, that guy was racing someone right after the installation while going to his tuner.

From all your post you are trying to start something all the time. You know nothing about the GTM kit nor had even race or sat in one. Not sure why you're always trying to talk down on it for and you're the only one thats been starting drama between the 2 kits.

Come one man how long we been on here, Go back and find some of my old post, Where I said "IF" GTM was card legal and my dealer would have honored my warranty I would have went GTM.. I have talk to same a handful of times and was always helpful.. Never starting any drama, But the IS another choice other than GTM, Each person to their own.
