    stage 3 or rude?

    I have done some searching around and looking at going to a stage 3 charger. the rude is $700 more is it worth it? Or option 2 buy a X charger? If the rude is only going to give me a mph or two better on top I am leaning towards just getting the stage 3. With some other mods I would be content with mid to high 70's with some kick butt acceleration. Any more opinions?

    I would say rude all the way, but if you are content with 76-77mph then just stick a riva S3 on it and save your money.

    In my case, I would like to see them get 50 hours or so on them with no issues. (touchdowns, etc...) Not saying they will have problems, but you never know.

    If you pick up an extra 2mph for $700, I think that is an excellent deal and well worth it.

    Actually the Rude is $1275 more expensive than the S3, or $775 more if you have the conversion done on your supercharger.

    There is a very large performance difference.

    Another option would be an X model supercharger which would fall between the S3 and the Rude

    Do you still have the deal if you send in your stock sc you get like 500 off the rude, or is that no longer possible?
