The mid range throw you in your seat is what I'm looking for. I don't need boost to smoke the tires off the line if I want. By the sounds of it I think I will be happy with the novi. Thanks man.

For the most part by what I've seen here the centri guys and 2300 guys boost for boost and running roughly the same at the track. I will say the centri is easier on parts because of how it comes in.
You bring up another point that helped in my decision. The fact that it is a little easier on the drivetrain not hammering the car with all that boost down low. I'm not looking to build a race car, just a fun street car. Thanks for the reply.

Looking at some of the dyno graphs I've seen I will have at least an additional 60 hp or so over stock in the low 2000 range and it only goes up quick from there. Not too bad.

I just want to have fun but I also want to have a nice setup. It's not like the car is a dog down low to begin with. I'm starting to think that maybe all that 2300 boost right off the line would be a waste anyway. I will be driving this around town and don't need all that boost every time I leave a light.

All opinions aside you will like the kit. This is an overlay of my old G8 GXP with intake and LTs(same drivetrain basicly as my SS) to my SS:

Post an update once it's installed. Yours will probably be done before mine.

I think for what I'm looking for, it's the best deal.


Jeff

Well in that case, sounds like a great deal. I have the 1500 and love it, but with the rebate and your goals, you made the right decision.

Mine is not a DD so I will be putting the car away soon. I bought the kit knowing if I waited any longer my wife would have found better use of the money... I will install and tune early spring.

OP, I chose a centri because I have gears and wanted a more linear torque curve than with the PD blower. I chose my cam with drivability without giving up any low end, as well as possible FI compatibility in the future. The future is now...

I have a hard time thinking that going a centri over a PD will disappoint on these cars, both make ridiculous power. As has been said by TornadoSS and others, in the right gear boost will be there.

Good luck!!!
