    I was wanting to know if there was ever a supercharger made for the ZC. It was rumoured that Jackson racing made one then discontiuned it. I just want to know if anybody makes one now.

    no problem, just my opinion..... but you should look into a turbo instead :)

    Yea, I like turbo. and If I did I would run low PSI because I hate lag. but I want my engine to last for a while. and I've always heard super isn't as hard on the engine as turbo. Even with all that parasitic drag.

    Ok I read it, and understand it a little bit(enough). So there would be no lag difference between 25psi and 7psi?

    you would still hit 7 psi at the same time on the same turbo.

    turbine wheel, bearings, motor's VE, motor's intake cfm, motor's combustion chamber, manifold design, timing, blah blah... theres 1000's factors.

    98% of which will only effect you in first gear in a race. after that, you're above 5k 99% of the time.. if you're not- its tire size and gearing issues- with a load placed on the eld, which will induce spool. , and lag is non existant if you know how to drive and can shift quick, the turbo won't loose but a couple pounds or so give or take all of the above.

    JR did make a ZC blower, but I don't know if they still do because I don't pay much attention to Oscar. Anyway... A good low lag turbo for the ZC would be an IHI RHB5 VJ11 or IHI RHB5 from a Ford Thunderbird Turbocoupe. You'll see full boost by 2700 RPM with that and the right size charge piping and DP.
