Procharger choices

I was doing some looking around, thinking.
I am going to procharge a BB Buick. It has the low compression and i think a decent cam to work well with a blower.
I don't want a big screw sticking out so i want to go cyntrifcal.
Now i have been looking at different manufacturers. Powerdyne, paxton, vortech, procharger.
Do i want one with self contained oil system of pickup off the motor engine oil.
I want like 8-10lbs of boost, for now. ITs carburetter.

Do i look for an enclosure, or use a carb hat. I might not have room for an enclosure, so im looking at the carb hat.
What mods to the carb, Solid floats, different jetting, modifying the metering blocks???

More important, What size can i get away with? What kind of flow #'s will make the head unit make power but not kill the bank. Can i get away with a procharger p-1sc or do i find the d-1sc. A v7 ys-trim from VTech or a v1 t-trim? Looking at the HP numbers on the V Tech, the v1-t-trim looks to work fine for me. But am i wrong?

I found bb chevy systems using the D-1sc and the v7 ys-trim. They show like fitting 1000hp motors.

Anyone able to shed any light on this or point me in a direction to make some decision's?

I have done a little looking at these types of superchargers and it seems that the prochargers are the best as far as power goes. The thing that procharger really has on the competiton is efficient intercooling. One thing that I like about the self contained superchargers is that you dont have all the junk that is floating around in your engine oil also flowing through your supercharger. I dont know if you have seen this, but the procharger catalog has a lot of really good info.

As far as what size to choose, that depends on what kind of hp your motor is making without the supercharger. This chart should give you and idea of which one to use.
