Default LS/VTEC OR JUST SUPERCHARGE MY LS

I DONT KNOW IF I SHOULD JUST DO AN LS/VTEC ON MY CIVIC OR JUST SUPER CHARGE. I LOVE TO LISTEN TO A CAR WHEN THE VTEC OPENS UP AND THE POWER YOU GET IN A SECOND BUT I'VE BEEN HEARING SOME GOOD **** ABOUT THE JACKSON SUPERCHARGER ABOUT HOW IT GIVES YOU 40 PERCENT MORE POWER BUT IS ONLY GOING TO BE AN LS WITH A SUPERCHARGER AND 75 SHOTS OF NITROUS. IF ANYBODY HAS ANY SUGGESTION CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ME OUT. AND ALSO CAN ANYBODY GIVE A NUMBER OR A WEBSITE WHERE I CAN FIND A GOOD STOCK B16 HEAD JUST IN CASE I GO LS/VTEC.

If I had and LS I would go with the LS/VTEC. Man those things have good torque. Forget the supercharger and NOS. Superchargers in my book are for domestics and NOS is the worst you can do to your motor because of the strain you'll put on it. Just go the VTEC and upgrade the internals and get a good turbo kit.

Between the LS/VTEC combo & the supercharger, I would go for the supercharger but without the nitrous though. I wouldn't go that extreme adding supercharger & nitrous without building the internals. It's not safe running both superchargers & nitrous with stock internals.

It all depends on the boost (how much?) and what size shot of NOS you will use.

If you keep the boost below 10 pounds... and something like a 50 to 75 shot of nitrous you should be alright. Im not to knowledgable on Nitrous... thats NTX's department.[sm=smiley2.gif]
