Being the Gearheads that we are here on Lightning Rodder, which would you choose to make your truck shoot down the 1/4mile like a real bolt of Lightning??
Have Fun Voting!!

are you serious!! that is gona kick ass mancamcojb said:I voted KB because the Whipple isn't out yet, although I do expect it to be equal to or better than the KB.
I ordered a turbo kit for mine, no more screwing around.
From these guys:lightninmike said:
Pretty true as far as pricing. That kit I'm going with is $5795. so that makes it nearly double a KB set-up. It will probably make 100+ more rwhp at the same boost though, plus it's going to be quieter exhaust-wise which is a big plus for me. As far as longevity I'd think a turbo will dramatically outlast any of the blowers out there. Now if the supporting hardware is up to the task remains to be seen. Plus I think they're easier on the motor boost for boost. At any rate I'm looking forward to getting this setup and you can count on a full write-up on the performance with dyno results.[email protected] said:
JJ, you know your my boy and all but I'm gonna make you bite your toung on the MP statement. Remember I had the second MP blower ever built. I laid down 24 lb of boost on JDM's dyno.[email protected] said:KB for me and for most of my customers.
Whipple, not out yet and is prettier than a non painted/polished KB, but the inlet and "kit" form doesnt appeal to me yet.
Magnum, Why bother if your using your rotors and the Ported Eatons are running just the same if not equal ET's/MPH's.
I've heard " I got it for the whine, you cant beat that Magnum Whine", but thats alot of money just for sound IMO.
Turbo's, for the most part they will be out of reach for most people dollar wise and installation wise, also the daily driveability of them has yet to be proven. I'm sure it can be done, but most are being purpose built just for racing.
Spend 3k, get a KB, Paint it or polish it, bolt it on without having to make up a "kit" and relocate stuff and your done...
Its all good G.JJ, you know your my boy and all but I'm gonna make you bite your toung on the MP statement. Remember I had the second MP blower ever built. I laid down 24 lb of boost on JDM's dyno.
This year we went 115 lb of set presure on my valve springs to handle the bigger boost I plan on adding once my bugs are worked out. I am going to be runing the stage 3 cams this year with my little extras. I have all the bolt on except a single blad TB and an e-fan.
I can't wait to see what my truck will do! I have to admit I have one other secret weapon (God)
