Default Going rate for used blower?

I'm looking for a used twin screw for my LS1 in a 70 nova, either a C5/C6 kit or GTO kit. Just a cathedral port head kit. What are these setups going for used nowadays?

They use to be cheap. I wish I would have bought as many as I could have. The supply/demand was right in front of me and I didn't take advantage. The last one I sold, I sold for $900 with the lid. Now you normally can't get the blower for that. At least now, there are better injector options than stock or ID1000's.

I was offered $5000 for my old TVS2300 kit from a complete stranger. Theres one on CL in my area now for $4000. Worth the money IMO. very low maintenance. just bolt it on. the torque and response is something that never ever ever ever gets old. I have a turbo car now and I miss that sound and response, although the turbo has its perks as well.

Well I actually ended up buying an old magnacharger MP112 kit to get my feet wet. $1500, and it is about 90% compete. I know itís not the best blower, but it will be me started, and I help me figure out boost before I get carried away

Are you talking about the CTSV-LSA superchargers? If you are they are not screw type superchargers, They are standards roots type.
And yes they were cheap for a little while, I snagged one new in the box for complete minus lid for $1400. Even the lids were much cheaper back then, I paid $350 for a new lid and now they are almost double that price.
