Jimi,
Greetings! Read your post, have some things for you to consider during your decision-making process: The Roots-style blowers look cool as hell, some say, but they are noisy, require you to cut holes in hoods, and necessitate an intake manifold swap. (more work)
The "ball-type" superchargers bolt on your existing platform, no intake manifold swap, quiet operation, no holes in the hood, and you can continue using your reliable fuel-injection for everyday use. Carbs and Roots-style setup's can be mighty picking about tuning and sometimes an almost constant maintenace factor. Want something to bolt on and just ENJOY? I would suggest the "ball-type" over the Roots. You'll probably end up much happier....... - Don, New York
