Hey everyone...i just bought an AU Fairmont Ghia 5Ltr and i want to do sum serious mods....Now i have bought 4 grand to spend.....I heard a supercharger is really good or i could spend the 4 grand on engine work....I rather a supercharger cause i can turn them on and off and take it out when i sell the car....

Does anyone know of a place where i can find a cheap supercharger for my 5.0 windsor motor?

or use one of those cheap electric one's. go with engine work.. forced induction can cause headaches and put more stress on ya engine/driveline

4g aint enough for a supercharging kit.
If you want to supercharge it some time down the line heres wat u do.
go buy things that will suit the superchargered motor. e.g
-extractors large free flowing collectors.
-full exhaust system with high flow cats and only single muffler.
-driveline such as an lsd with good gears if you dont already have one like 3.45 higher e.g 4.11
you will spend 4g quickly on things that will support you in supercharging the car in the future.

Supercharger is best bang for buck. Keep the money in the bank and save for it.

also very cheap

More than a brand new Vortech.
Anything from about 3k minimum, to 6k i think.
Usually around the 4-5k for a spanka.
