    If it came off his Mustang and you have a mustang to put it on, then buy it. but if it came off his GSR and you have a GSR, then don't bother. buy a turbo.

    I think that you would be alot happier going with turbo other than supercharging your car.

    But if that's your thing go for it.

    lots of people buy used sc and turbo's. ive heard about caster oil leaking from some root superchargers, but that is very rare. if you want the sc, go for it.

    all mecahnical and "turbo is better" issues aside...

    getting a used setup that is complete is going to be a near impossible task. there's 100 odd parts that are NOT the actual SC unit...
    so, say 1-1.5k for the used piece, and anywhere from 0-500 more in misc parts, hoses, lines, fittings, exahust, fuel modifications...

    for 2k, you can have a newer turbo setup.

    How mutch does he want for it? installed? why is he selling it? we need more info. If its off of the car look for burnt oil in and around any friction areas, also give it a spin if you cant turn it with your hand it is definetly worthless, it will just put more parisidic drain on your engine.
