Sorry I haven't had anything to update. I did receive the charger yesterday. Kris at Jannetty rattled some chains at SLP to get them to send it out, thanks Kris!!! Installing it tomorrow night after work. Read through the directions a couple times and compared to a Kenne Bell I installed a couple years ago on my C5 vette, this will be a cake walk. Kit is nicely done. It says 6 hours, will be happy if I get it done anything under that. Ted already sent me my tune so as long as the install goes ok I'll be driving it home same night.

Baseline dyno with the LS9 cam compared to dyno after Maggie would be cool to see.

Installed charger last night. This SLP kit is great, easy install and simple instructions, highly recommend it. Also install the MSD BAP which was included in this package from Jannetty. Runs very well but have not gotten on it yet. Waiting to send a datalog to Ted so he can give me the green light to give her hell. May remote tune from a shop that has a chassis dyno just out side of town, but will do a quick one first to see if Ted thinks the dyno is necessary.

Not really anything new. Car runs great thanks to Ted from JRE! I did 3 datalogs for him and he sent me 3 updates on the the tune, got better everytime he made an adjustment. We are to the point I need to get a wideband on the car and strap it to the dyno for WOT pulls. I'm in a dilemma though, I either rent a dyno for $350 minimum here in town and remote tune with Ted, or spend 5-$600 at Karl Chevrolet and get a full tune where someone can sit in the seat and make necessary changes that maybe Ted can't feel thru the datalog or over the phone. Not trying to take ANYTHING away from Ted at all, top notch company as everyone else has said, just looking for personal experience from any of you that have done either or.
One thing I've noticed also is the lack of monster torque down low like the roots style blowers are known for. Car drives perfect otherwise!! Can tell it makes good power but haven't really gotten on it yet, only a couple low and mid RPM pulls for datalogging for a very short burst. Sweet piece of machinery!!!

I did the remote tune with Ted and would go that route again. Ted can read the data logs and get it right where you want it. No question there.

As for the lack of low end - The Eforce blower I run is very torquey down low. (but it IS known for that). The first blind JRE email tune was much better than the Edelbrock provided tune but it took 2 more datalogs to get it really crisp. You might just need to have Ted tweak it a bit.

You're not going to have quite the low end torque running a cam with a 122.5 lsa. A little different cam would have made a big difference there. Can't beat the price and it is smooth though

Talked to Ted and today and he wants to finish the tune off himself. Assures me he can get it right on and I believe him. As for the low end power he thinks there is more left on the table to be had. Ordered a 3.4" pulley from Jannetty today also to lock in the 600 rwhp I'm shooting for. Next Wednesday I hit the dyno just outside of town for the final remote tune with Ted.

I will be interested in what you get on a dyno.

I am also running a ls9 cam with edelbrock supercharger. However, I went with Texas speed heads. I added better springs just i case I wanted to swap cams later. Living in cali was my main reason on a LS9 cam it is an easy gain for a cam that will fall under the radar .

Made 570rwhp on 8lbs of boost and bad gas during the first dyno session. Lack of time has hindered me getting back to finish it off. Runs great though. Couldn't be happier.

That's awesome! What about drivability and sound, how different is it from stock ?
