Kevin,

Have you guys developed/installed the bodykit yet? All I see are sketches on the website.

I need to re-read the MM&FF article with the KB vs TVS comparo'. It was a 2.8 to a 2.3 and the KB ended-up performing better under circumstances, but I don't recall exactly what. I know that at the end of the article I felt the test wasn't exactly objective but I'll report back after reading it again and getting a fresh take. Like you said though, it seems like these TVSs are doing well. In every test I've seen it doesn't seem like power is trailing off at the top end at all. On the LSA/LS9 peak power is reached at cuel cut-off and the curve isn't starting to flatten-out at all; similar to all these Maggy' tests.

Very encouraging

I'm sorry about that:

ARH - American Racing Headers

pretty cool to think if you pick up a 1ss used in a year or so and install one of these mostly yourself, you can have a pretty nice ride for really cheap.

QFT

They want more power, less weight, and a lower price. The Camaro is one of the cheapest cars when you compare HP & $$.

I would definitely buy one in about 4 years, I just don't know if GM is going to be here that long, or even make one by then. Worst case scenario, I buy one of these used in 2 years or so for myself, after my wife buys her new one

Regarding the warranty....I'm reading this to only include a warranty on the supercharger and components. And I'm assuming that the GM drivetrain warranty would be voided by the dealer/manufacturer if the car ended up with a hole in a piston. Is that correct?

Remember LPE can sell you a base kit as it is provided by Magnuson for 7450.00. IN regards to the TVS/Screw comparison, the screws are all hype...the ONLY thing they have over the TVS is size, and the 2300 will support 1000 BHP if you have the supporting mods to back it up.

the extra 2k is worth the extra stuff if your going to spend that kind of money on something might as well go balls to the wall, though still too much i'll wait...

Impressive. But the question I will raise is:

Since the stock Ls3 is not a forge internals engine, how much can the stock internals, and drivetrain take before it goes....B O O M ?

If I have calculated this correctly, (I could be a bit off) those numbers should put you at about..610 Flywheel. that's a lot power running through stock components. And with GM's current situation, I somehow doubt highly that would be covered by a warranty.

So how much can a LS3 safely boost ?
