The Magnachargers are the best priced for what you get IMO.

Then you also have the centri blowers like the paxton, vortec, and pro charger. I personally like the procharger. In fact the 2 fastest stock rotating assembly SS Silverados In the country are D1 procharged both with stock heads.. They are running 11.0X 1/4 and weigh in at 5200+ lbs.

Turbos are cool but a total pain in the ***** to tune and get running right unless it is a full out race effort, but on a budget the blowers just down right work!
