    Was working a 12-hour over night shift from 7am-7pm, wanted to read some good stuff and up popped another "Supercharger is it worth it" thread. That's about as bad as the "What wheels look the best" threads. Agggh.

    yes they are worth it. if you put supercharger badging or stickers on it it will add another estimated 10-20hp

    yes i think it is, if your willing to get the right supporting mods and pay for premium gas to make it run right. IMO turbo is a better way to go but thats a huge debate not worth bringing up

    I want to lift my truck 3" and idk what to get. I'm thinking spacers and blocks what do you guys think? Also has anyone ever used plasti dip before? I'm thinking about doing my badges and grille and wanted to see pics. :D

    OP, supercharger is worth it, there will be major power gains.
