Check out this article on sccoa.com to learn a little about the subject.

What kind of supercharger you use can also depend on what kind of gains you're looking for. The stock Eaton blower for the SC's will do 12psi max with the stock pulley on it. Your other alternatives include Whipple, Allen, Vortech, amongst others.

I'm sure someone with more knowledge of aftermarket blowers will chime in.

It's an MN-12 thing... you wouldn't understand.

Did you read either of the links I posted?

You're going to have to upgrade a few parts to handle the stress and compensate for the increase in air flow. How far you take it is entirely up to you.

Try a few forum searches, I know there are a couple others who have done what you are trying to and have no doubt posted about their experiences.
