Default Best cost effective, Positive displacement (ie Kenne Belle) combo you've seen ?

Hello All,

Looking at an LS swap in a 2008+ Jeep 4 door...because of space considerations, Turbos may be ruled out, whats a good cost-effective positive displacement blower combo (like the hellcat, CTS-V or ZR-1 Vette) to make a reliable 600 + hp ?

CTS-V has the 1.9 blower that works on any LS3/L92/LSA square port head. They sell for around $700-850 all day long used. You still need the fuel rail $250 and stock injectors for another $150-200, and the lid/intercooler that bolts on top $100-150 (or a ZL1 lid for $300). There are then the brackets needed and and upgraded pulley on the snout. With a cam, headers, and upgraded pulley (more boost) it will make an easy 600hp. Instant low end torque.

None, they're really expensive and take extra fuel to turn

I am doing this now because fitting a turbo with full exhaust, and keeping a/c with a front mount ic is not a easy task in a daily driven s10. I am not saying it can't be done, just not in the time frame I can bolt on a factory supercharger.
