Another option is to simply trade it in for a Colorado or Canyon that comes with a V8. It was an option, so you might be able to find one. It's a 5.3L that makes 300 HP.

dobey, thank you I went to Vortech's website. They have the V-5 supercharger g and f series, websites says the kit is made for engines as small as 1.4 and large as 4.3 max hp up to 500hp I believe the g series boost at 15 psi and f series at 14 psi. Looks like the f series is built to be mounted anywhere where the g series is to be mounted in a specific location. From what I gathered anyways.
Awesome info for us who are just beging.
I guess I am in the majority with wanting tune up a little engine the vortech 2.9 i4 that my truck came stock with is a lil bad ass has great torques and hp for its size.
I am set in my mind that I want to keep the stock powerplant just add componets to it.
Not only that v8 v6 for the most part gobble gas my 4 not so much. Also a 4 suped up runs alot different then a big ol v8.
I know the mod I am looking to do is alittl race oreinted but really not looking for that if I was I totally would go with a v8. I am just doing for personal enjoyment and to zip pass vehicles and for people to be like why the hell is that lil truck passing me.
I live in a small town in socal everyone thinks there a racer and to just get into the lane to turn inot a store or to get to a side street involves hauling butt.
For instance this morn was in the right lane it was about to end in a block. So i needed to lane change the kid in the prius next to me looked over and stepped on the pedal basically blocking me. I downshifted and openned up on him a lil bit flew past him changed lanes and made the light.
At the end of the day thats what im looking for granted im already there with the mods I have done but what if it was stock stang, bmw, benz etc....
So with this 2500 supercharger I could be like f your beemer f your couch and blow past them!
Score one for the lil guy! lol

People everywhere drive like idiots and like they're the only one on the road. You're little corner of SoCal isn't special in that regard.

Look I dont race dotn wanna race, I dont even intend on it. I would however like a unique truck, A super speedy truck with a total stock look other then bigger tires.
I get it you dont like the wanna be fast and the furios people, but #1 its not up to you who can do what with there vehicle. #2 You have no idea how I drive.
The fact that I want to be able to pass someone blocking me in, sometimes slowing down is not an option. Why is being able to pass that person baad???
I mean if were making assumptions, there is plenty that can be drawn form you pitbiull pic. I am sure you are aware of the sterreo type that come with that dog and what assumptions can be drawn from it.
Lets not be that way. have a good one.

Yes, people do suck, and there are more people driving now than there ever has been, with more people not paying attention to their surroundings, or even the road. If there's a particular road, or set of particular roads, where drivers are especially bad, then it might due well to call the local police and city council to inform them of the increase in poor driving in those areas, and better if you can say specific times when it gets worse. They'll put a policemen or two out there a few times, maybe one of the speed gun trailers that shows drivers their speed, and council could pass a bill to lower the speed limit, or raise the fines for speeding, in the area, to help get people to slow down and drive better. There will still bee the idiots of course, but these things do help, and don't increase the risk of accidents or worse, that giving everyone more horsepower would.
Besides, what will you do if you install a supercharger on your truck, and then all the *******s in the blue BMWs go do the same to their cars? You'll be back to square one, and wanting to go faster, instead of slowing down, but already be near the breaking point of what your engine may be able to handle.
