00' Harley... how to super-charge?

I just bought a 00'harley with 37,000 miles for ONLY 21,000 dollars... I want to kick it up a notch and super-charge BRUCE (that's what I named him). Can anyone help me getting started with the supercharging of my truck? How much am I looking to spend? And is really worth the money? (i mean will I tear the socks off every truck in my little hick town that has never heard of SUPER CHARGE)

Any help will be greatly appreciated and taken full advantage of.

Thanks

00' Harley... how to super-charge?


Generally speaking, there are two types of s/c's available for street use - the centrifugal (Paxton, Vortech, ATI, etc.) and the positive displacement type. A full explanation of the theoretical and practical differences would fill many pages. But it should be sufficient to point out that the positive displacement systems are often superior for use on the street, for towing, and for heavy vehicles such as SUV's. Twin Screw can be very effective in a street/strip application. That said, for an all out racing EFI setup a centrifugal supercharger or turbo is probably the way to go.

The Advantage of a "Positive Displacement" Supercharger

It's really very simple. A positive displacement system produces huge power gains from just off idle all the way to the redline. This offers an enormous real world performance advantage over a centrifugal system. Boost is produced much earlier and peaks much more quickly.
As a consequence there will be much more low and mid range torque with the positive displacement. Even on a setup where the centrifugal is producing more peak boost and hence more peak power, the Kenne Bell setup will often be faster. This is because acceleration occurs over time. The amount of time spent in the lower rpm range, where the pd is producing more boost and more power, is greater and hence the average acceleration rate is significantly higher and the throttle response will be superior. I suggest using a twin screw set up. Your lookin at 700 bucks for everything. Look into a company named kenne bell.
