Factory should produce about 8 pounds of boost...if you are only getting that much, your boost control isn't working as it should.

You have some serious problems. I'll move your post to 'Forced Induction' in our Mechanical section for troubleshooting purposes.

You do not upgrade to a larger supercharger as a common upgrade like you would with turbos. You simply get a smaller pulley for the end of the supercharger, which causes it to spin faster and create more boost.

Let's have some hard numbers to work with so we can make sure you're making the boost you should. That car should plant you in your seat when you goose the loud pedal.
