Just for fun lets compare:

http://www.kennebell.net/pricelist/pricelist.htm

Kenne Bell C5 inter-cooled kit
(Includes CAI, Boost-A-Pump, 38lb injectors, Flash Tuner, 76-93MM inlet)
$6999 Complete Inter-cooled kit ($800 for the vette hood can be used on labor)
$1,114.95 Borla Catback and X-pipe #140280
-------
$8113.95 installed and would make more power (inter-cooled), add $650 for the polished kit.

Do the work yourself (easy) and you can have it a lot cheaper.

Whipple could probably offer a kit for even less.

I foresee complete 5k-6k kits in the near future.

Hp is what the engine makes Rwhp is what actually hits the ground

The one big question, IS IT A FORGED MOTOR? I don't see the power going up or lasting with cast pistons.

Corsa Exhuast System: $1450
CAI System: $395
Tune: $75?

If you just add up the unpolished blower, CAI and exhaust, your looking at $8600, not counting any labor or install costs.

Still, that's not a bad price for the power it makes.
dont forget the name tag on the kit as well. big name = bigger money for the same stuff.

Personally drove the car around the facility today and man oh man does it feel different then the first time I took it out for the weekend. This is how the car should have came from the factory!!!

Comparing Apples to apples... A fully loaded 2SS with this supercharger still puts you around the base price of a Dodge Challenger and you are up 150 hp!!! Great buy!

We will have the units arriving within the next couple of days and are taking orders at this time. Call me directly and I can assist you with any of your questions.

Speak to you soon.

So which is it? I have seen on this forum in another thread (forgot which one) the stock RWHP of the LS3 listed as ~ 348. Here they say 376HP or so. That's a big difference. The other thread said 150 + HP increase resulted in about 480 RWHP @ 6 psi. Who am I to believe?

Someone posted the reason that different stock camaro's will show different HP and torque specs. Different dynos i'm sure is one. BUt even if u tested camaro's on the same dyno you would still see a difference in HP and torque ratings. But i can't remember why it was said you would see different ratings.

A good pro dyno Tune should be around $300-400

still doesnt even come close to the 2010 rustang gt500 price (32k base SS vs 46k base Gt500). And it makes 636HP (530rwhp+20% Drivetrain loss) vs gt500's 540hp, lol. Rustang = fail

EDIT: go with a procharger, since its pretty simple to bolt on u can save moneys on labor
EDIT #2: and u can bolt it off when its time for warranty work
