i don't exactly know... no one does, but the prophesies have fortold that by a week shy of the end of the 3rd month, in the II (or 11... there's a little debate as to the actual number) th year of this millennium, one chosen shop, who's been guarding the power of the twin screw til now, will break forth the glorious news of the era of distribution for Touched-by-the-hand-of-God LS1s around the world!
and so yeah.. .i just spent the past hour talking to Jeff @ TPE (the vette shop in Vegas), and he basically gave me the breakdown on why a KB blower would be the one to go with. great guy & definitely knows his stuff - he actually's the one who did the R&D/development for most of the Kenne Bell GM stuff.
all that topped off by a comparable price (which, by some quotes, is even cheaper than a Maggie after buying a hood) has just about helped me nail down my decision.
the best advise i got from the conversation, though, was about how to go about my build. and (especially considering he's got TONS more experience than me), i'm probably gonna listen to him. instead of doing the whole "stages" idea, i'll be better off just waiting it out a bit longer & doing the cam/headers at the same time because it'll save a ton in labor
from the citation: "...you may have the defect corrected, then contact your local county or city law enforcement agency to have the correction certified below. You must pay the local law enforcement agency [$____] for this service. You may then mail or present this affidavit or compliance along with [$____] to the Clerk of Court..."
so from the way that reads & the way it played out so far, maybe i won't have a processing fine either
