You have the AMS and Eurotech kits to pick from if you want a Vortech
Supercharger based system, these are basically the same kit.  The other
system is the Z-Engineering Supercharger system which is easier to install
but makes less power.
Do not bother with getting a Eurotech system.  They have and are giving
anyone wanting one WAY too many problems that I won't get into on here.  AMS
(kit I have) is basically the same as the Eurotech kit and was the original
manufacturer of a Vortech based kit but their software is a bit dated and
could be improved on.  I have had no problems with their customer service
but have not had to deal with them much.  They do not seem to be interested
in updating the software or making any further upgrades to the kit.  They
almost seem to not even care about selling it.  As far as the Z-Engineering
charger goes you get a easy to install kit that has had 3 generations of
updates.  The updates are a good and bad thing.  They improved the kit but
were also done because of many problems that the kits were having.  They put
out less power but don't cost any less.

The rest is up to you to decide on how much power you will be happy with and
if it will keep you happy.  Don't get me wrong about the AMS kit.  There are
still things that you can do if you want even more power and the regular
software it comes with is ok.  I'm sure that the Z-kit will also be getting
power upgrades as well but I don't think that the charger they use will ever
be able to compare with the Vortech charger being used in the AMS and
Eurotech kits.

With the Vortech based kits you are going to be around 250 at the wheels on
a nice running car.  With cams and a air/water aftercooler you will be 280+
then.  This is measured at the wheels and would be 300+ if measured at the

I think you would be hard pressed to get this much out of the Z-kit without
adding more boost.  I'm not up on the latest upgrades for the Z-kit so maybe
someone else can post up for them.  I do know that the Z-kit has been a self
contained lubricating system where as the Vortech based kits are tapped into
the car's oil system and I would think would be running a bit lower charger
temps..... correct me if I'm wrong on any of this.  I'm not always right
like my GF.
