based on what?


The Maggie is by far the more popular... Not to say that KB isn't a good blower. just no data on it yet.

As of now Lingenfelter has gotten 600 rwhp on a Maggie TVS 2300

I personally dislike kenne bell cuz I want to hear the engine roar, not a super high pitched whine.

Then again, I like turbos much more. So take what I say with a grain of salt.

Maggies give just the right "Hum" for me the 2010 Camaro takes to the maggie very well. I absolutely love mine, no complaints

Mine is keeping yours company at Lingenfelter. It got picked up on Wednesday. I have been very impressed with everything I have heard and read about Lingenfelter and thats why they are doing mine as well.

WTH are you talking about, have you heard one in person or from just some shity vids? They sound awesome! You have that great whine, but no where as annoying as Kenne Bells. They sound better than maggies in my opinion, not saying they dont sound great (cause they do). To me it doesn't sound like a monster and not my cup of tea if you know what i mean.

Hell no! I love the way they look. Not all flashy and shit. Still fits under the stock hood on all there applications. Also looks like a sleeper.

Here is what it looks like under my hood, It is a very rough mock up for right now. Sorry cam was freaking out. Still in the r/d process and might change some more. I think im not supposed to show this cause its still not finished.

Awesome! Another Positive displacement blower argument.

Wonder how long it will be before STS has a setup for the 5th gen. A turbo setup that is.

the real numbers have been coming from the centri superchargers. if you dont believe me, go to corvetteforum.com and see what the faster cars are running.

if i were to pick from maggie or KB i would go KB.
