It really dep[ends on what you are looking to do. The headgaskets are notoriosly weak on MN12's so be prepared for that eventuality.

get high flowing exhaust and some headers and you could probably handle 8-9 psi safely...the boost dont come on as quick as the eaton roots type...

Unless you just want a bit more power out of your current 3.8, I'd go with the Vortech. But if your looking to make alot more power, then I'd find a 3.8 SC engine/transmission, build them up to what you want, and then drop them in. If I had the space, time, and money, I'd do that with my 3.8, but I don't have any of the three at the moment - atleast for that sort of project.
