Default supercharger question

not long ago i asked about the possible gains i'd get using a turbo-shaped supercharger such as the vortech superchargers.. and it didn't seem like many of you agreed it would be too good... and so do i.. BUT.. what if i got say.. a kenne bell twin screw */c.. the shop i went to a couple days said i should stop by for estimate.. thousands i'm sure.. but i hear this is an amazing */c.. any one think of why i shouldn't do this

Well, I can tell you that the Kenne bell SC will hit you in upwards of 4 grand.

There'* alot you need to do to that car before upgrading a supercharger. It'* not a magic pill for performance, at least not all by itself.

so this badssei would probably have a pretty good list of stuff that would need to be done eh? well i guess my main question is.. would this be better than getting a vortech upgrade? in the sense that it would not have the bad traits of a turbo and none of the good ones?
