Why not the centri units out now?

If at all possible, I would go with a good single or twin kit but since the tuning is just not there yet, I would honestly say to go with any kit that has good tuning behind it. That's the key to everything.

Amen, the tune is the key ! If its a Bosch ECU need to make sure the tuner is familiar and has good files. Otherwise little glitches show up like stabilitrack errors when there's none.
There are people out there just mucking there way and will never get an oem type tune.

1.) Cost More

2.) More Maintenance

3.) Less Low end torque, (where its needed to move these heavy piggies)

1. Cost More? They are the same price.

2. More Maintenance? How?

3. Less Low end torque. Yes but too much low end torque and you're just going to be spinning anyway so what's the use. I would personally love some more low end torque but I already spin my tires pretty well, I can just imagine how bad it'll be with another 75-90 hp.

1.) Install takes longer, means more $$$ to the shop.

2.) More parts means more parts to break.

3.) Completely disagree with that statement. You might as well ask why Chevy makes makes a torquey V8 for the Camaro then.

We don't know how the roots kit is going to be implemented so we don't know how much install will be.

We don't know how many parts the roots kit will have.

You also have to take into account that a roots kit will generate more heat than the centri.

With the roots kit the super chiller wil be a practical option as well.
