supercharger

I am thinking about installing a supercharger in my '97 F150 (4.6L). I was just wondering, as fellow F150 owners, what kind of supercharger do you think would be better? (centrifugal or roots) Personally, I find the modular engines to have a relatively "weak" low end, thus, the roots type would help with that. But the centrifugal blows in cooler air because of its mounting location, further away from the engine. However, like a turbocharger, its power comes in mainly at the mid to high rpm range. Any way, I would appreciate it if you could help me out. Thank you!

This is the guy you want to contact. I had asked a question about superchargers and exhausts. His answers are exact, full, and to the point. Do your self a favor and contact him. That's about as much as I can tell you.
