Default What the Best SuperCharger for my 2006 Acura RSX under $1500?

I'm looking to give my car that extra kick again! *laughs* I don’t want some cookie cut turbo that’s designed for all cars I want something designed for the serious driver you know? I don’t want to spend over $1500 but if it cost more and is worth it than by all means let me know what the best Turbo out there! I will pick best answer.No its a stick Who in there right mind would put a turbo on an automatic?

you're puting a turbo on an automatic ?with the 140 hp engine...( yes I realize the speedometer goes higher...but will the tranny ???) Think before you act...think...if the tranny goes, there goes my warranty. (and about $5000. to fix the engine...)

For $1,500 all you are going to get is an intake, header, and exhaust. If you want forced induction go with a turbo, not a supercharger. The best 2 kits on the market are the Greddy, and the Turbonetics kits. These two are vehicle specific and have everything needed to install it in about 12-14 hours. They even come with all the fuel stuff, and electronics, so there is NO external tuning necessary. They are set to run at 8 PSI for a stock internal engine and will take you from 125 HP at the wheels to the area of about 230-250 at the wheels. Both of these kits will run about $3,500.

I think it's a really bad idea.First off, adding a super charger will void any warranty you have on your car.Secondly, it will depreciate your car. No one likes cars that some boy racer has messed with. It scares them. So if people find out what you've done, they will pay less for the car. So you lose any money you spent installing the turbo, and the car also loses some of its value. Of course you can not mention what you did when you sell it, but that opens you up to get sued for non-disclosure.Third, adding a super charger will invalidate your insurance. So if you have an accident, they will use it as an excuse not to pay out. If you injure someone you could find yourself facing all kinds of expensive legal liabilities.Finally, your car was designed with a certain amount of power in mind. Adding more will stress the transmission, and the brakes, tires, and suspension will not be designed to take the extra power. This could affect vehicle safety and shorten the life of your car that no longer has a warranty.Seriously. Save your money, buy a faster car next time you trade.
