Blower?

Just want to put this out there for opinions. I want to put a blower on my 4.0. I just want another 25 ponies on the ground. Good or bad Idea? My personal preference is blowers over turbos.

I'm by all means not an expert, but I think you can get 25 more hp by doing other performance mods. That being said, will it look cool under the hood? I think so.

And because I'm a nice guy, here's a link for a company that build blower kits for most Jeeps:
https://www.boostedtech.com/

Completely disagree with ability to add power any way other than forced induction, but if I did want to do it SC would be the way and boosted tech is probably the best value option out there for that.

I am seriously considering it also. I think there is someone on here that is involved with a company that does it also. I think but am not 100% sure that his screen name is CobraMarty.

I thought about the V8 option but just cant get that done over a holiday weekend, and my jeep is my daily driver.

Thanks for the inputs. Boosted technology looks like a good deal and I can do it myself. Will keep you posted on the end result.
