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!!!

Out of curiosity... What gears are you guys running. I'm talking about a good street gear that would work well with the paxton centri. I'm not even sure what gear comes stock in my ls3.

Stock gear is 3.45 on the LS3. The centri style blower works well with a nice gear because it acts like an NA car down low anyways. I run a 4.11 in mine. Hopefully others will comment their setup also.

Jannetty built "JRE/LPE" 3.91's... Dead quiet and strong down low, should be a good combo with a centri... I bought mine right before GM released their OEM 3.91's which to the best of my knowledge are made by the same company (AAM). My impatience cost me...

My car rips, I don't even know why I am putting a blower on...

Good info. Thanks! Did you do anything to the rear to make it hold up better? Or do I even need to worry about this?

Some say just drop the GM 3.91's on the stock diff. Ted at JRE told me that this set up (Eaton Posi) would be a more durable.

The Eaton is a badass unit. You can beat the crap out of it all day long and it'll still come hard. It's a good investment if you can't afford a 9".

You shouldn't worry about swapping out gears unless you go FI. Even then you can still use them, but hooking up would be a bitch.

Is it in a casing where you can swap out the actual meter for something else?

Yes. Gauge and mount are two different pieces.
