Seriously though, if you are serious about a kitt style SC setup, you may at least want to consider the RIPP. Being a centrifugal type it will have lower heat soak and discharge temps than the positive displacement types (such as the Whipple) which I imagine might be a reasonable consideration where you are. Colder you can keep your air intake the more efficient your boost and less heat stress on your engine.
If you straight out prefer the positive displacement style, another option might the the Edelbrock e-force. One of the local forced induction shops down here in Melbourne were in the process of bolting one onto their bosses Jeep SRT last time I checked a week or so ago. Will have to chase them up for their results. I was given a very rough quote of $12k for this installed & tuned, which is possibly a bit cheaper than the Whipple by the time you add exchange rates, shipping & GST...
