Default Which Supercharger?

O.K., which supercharged car offers better acceleration. The first series 1 w/ 205hp, 260ftlb, the second series 1 w/ 225hp, 270ftlb, or the series 2 w/ 240hp, 280ftlb. I've heard that the second version of the series 1 is best because it reaches tourque at a lower RPM and doesn't have much less power than a series 2. Is this true? The reason I ask is because there is a 95' LSS supercharged on ebay. It seems as though there are a lot of people selling their supercharged cars on ebay lateley. I wonder why- gas prices maybe?

Many of the series II cars are heavier. I'd say get the 95 if it'* good and you're looking for it. The series II has better support for internal parts, but that'* for serious people really. Still have options for series I internals anyways.

The series I feels stronger around town, series II a little better on highway. These are all subtle differences too.

Yea, there is a 95' LSS supercharged up in St. Cloud for sale. $3,300 w/ 127,000 miles. Do you think that its worth a test drive?

Not a bad price. The coupler may make the nose rattle some, but that'* a cheap fix, otherwise just go through the normal things.
