Default How Much does it cost to buy/install a supercharger to my honda fit?

I own a honda fit, and I love it. It's only set back is it is a little on the slower side. I don't want a super charger so I can race or anything, I just want the choice to gun it if I need too. I have been told a super charger would be the way to go. How much would that cost? I've been told that it would be both worse and better for mpg. Some say that if I installed one, but didn't always drive hard that i would actually get better mpg, and another person said it would degrade my engine faster. Anyone know?How will my gas mileage be affected?

I don't see any supercharger kits available for the fit, but Jackson Racing is working on one. Expect to pay $3000-4000. You can also try to piece your own together, but if you don't know how to do the fabrication work, it is probably going to cost you more than a pre-made kit.Don't expect to increase your gas mileage even if you don't drive hard. If you really keep your foot off the gas, you might see a very small increase in mileage. Anytime you get on it and use the power the supercharger produces, you will get worse mileage.

You DO NOT need the supercharger, you need a turbo. A supercharger is CONSTANTLY turning decreasing your fuel effeciency, a turbo only works as it spools up and releases at a certain RPM (most smaller ones about 2,500-3,000 RPM) If you drive it like you say you are then a turbo would only be working when you "gun" it. Also the guy who said Jackson Racing hasn't priced their superchargers lately. It will be in the $4,000 for the charger and another $1,000-$1,500 for the install. A good turbo kit can be found for about $3,000 and installed for about the same. Another plus with the turbo is its almost infinatly adjustable by changing boost pressure, a supercharger's boost is determined by a pulley and believe me most are a pain in the @$$ to change.
