Turbo to Supercharger

I turbocharged my car and I'm thinking of switching to a supercharger. Any recommendations for a supercharger? I got an oil cooler, catch can and a fuel pump already installed

I guess reliability and heat issues. Cant seem to run ac in the summer without causing my car to overheat and even with the ac on it only blows hot air.

What turbo kit do you have? Summer in Toronto isn't exactly brutal and there are guys in Texas running turbo kits with AC working.

Thats pretty weird. I run same turbocharger here in FL and my AC works fine without overheating. Did you heat tape the radiator hose below, near the headers as well?

I haven't put it on the Dyno yet, still have to finish up e-tuning and want to replace my stock overpipe/fp. Also want to get a vented hood for the heat but don't like the verus vent option and the Carbon Fiber is too flashy so I'd have to get that painted, plus it rains too much here so my engine bay would get dirty quick. Then I'm buying a house as well so my expenses for the car are being pushed back.


How much psi are you running?

Looks pretty normal. I would recommend you get hood vents. Also are you running on waste gate spring pressure or what PSI? You might need an ac recharge...
