Newbie with questions

Hello, i'm new in this forum, and i like some advice. A customer just bought a GC SRT-8, and i just received the Magnaflow cat-back and the Volant air intake for his GC, problem is, this guy always wants more and more power (which is ok), i've been looking at the GSM supercharger kit, BUT... i've seen huge HP gains from other parts like cam/heads, N2O, etc, so i like to know, what are the best mods you can do considering the $7,200/100 hp gain ratio of the GSM supercharger?

Heads, Cam and headers will run you about 4k and will earn you 80 +/- HP

The newly available ASM supercharger 7+k will get you 125 HP with 5-6 PSI on a stock bottom end. If he is like me he will do both!!

FASTmade Ediff & TCM switches, 170 Stant, B&B Catback, Dynamic Heads, FRE Hellfire Cam, Kooks LT's
ARIZONA SPEED & MARINE Vortech SuperCharger Kit, ASM Phenolic Spacers, UniChip,

N20. 100 shot. Just need to switch out the plugs. Quickest/cheapest way for 100hp.

Depends on how often you need to fill it!!!! This would be an expensive route for me. But I am thinking of getting a 25-50 shot just to cool down things during the track days and Saturday night money makers!!

With the amount of heatsoak I saw at the track I know we need to cool down the intake charge especially on a FI. I am thinking just a small shot to cool it down enough.

Your summers are just as bad as mine so you may want to do it also.

Im using meth/water... and wont wear out your motor, and it will activate every time you go WOT.

I was taught that NOS will actually help clean your motor. With lower amounts and not pushing the envelope Nitrious can be very helpful. Could be wrong though.

I ran Meth/Water on my diesel, worked really well. It might be a good option. And cheaper than NOS.

Is that a kit or is the system home built and how much work to install?
