The twin-screw kits Herrod are selling look pretty decent.

CAPA have their centrifugal kits.

Give them both a ring. I am sure they would be happy to demo if you are nearby any of their shops...

BPT have done a positive displacement unit on their GT. Pumps out a little over 500rwhp. Very tidy. They are a sponsor of this site too, so will more than likely be very willing to help.

Cool thanks will check them out too.....was also looking at one advertised in Performance Ford Mag,it was about $4000...All I have done to my XR so far is a K&N Filter and a twin sports exhaust system,will most likely add a set of extractors once we fit the supercharger....
