THANK YOU! I was starting to think I was the only one thinking about that I just really begin to question a company making claims when the testing seems skewed; of course, I could just be interperating it wrong...

As far as the 20 psi test, I didn't really have a problem with that test. The KB was clearly superior - no question. Where I questioned it a little bit, is whether-or-not the 2300 was designed to be running at the 18,000 or 20,000 RPMs I think it was running at, and it didn't even get to 20 psi if I remember correctly... I mean, if I don't have an intention on running at 20 psi (and it isn't even designed to be spun that high), I don't need a blower that goes that high, so I'll be less interested in it. However, if I'm running at 15 psi, I'm certainly going to be looking at it's efficiency and power consumption at that level and lower RPMs. I'm all for having enough headroom, but it's not like I need a Top Fuel dragster-sized blower - even I know that, lol. I just want to see conclusive testing, under the same conditions, apples-to-apples

Were Glad you guys like it..

Hey All,

Some of you may know our compay from other GM KB products, but some of you may not.

I have been working closely with Kenne Bell since 2004 designing the LS based twin screw kits. We became involved with them on the original C5 kit, and have continued to aid in design and R&D since then.

When it comes to this kit, and the system in general, we are probably the most knowledgeable in the industry. That being said, I will be more than happy to answer pretty much any question yu may have. Chances are, if you call KB, they will refer you to me anyways.

BUT, this kit is a COMPLETE redesign from the ground up. From the lower manifold, to the new patented head unit, to the anxiously awaited redesigned inlet manifold. It carrys nothing from the original C5 kit (For a few reasons.) Lets just say we learned ALOT from that system.

Although originally we had anticipated a final release on 1/1/10, we have had to push back the release until right around 2/1/10. This has nothing to do with the kit itself, we are just waiting on a few shipments of some gears, and 100 of the inlet manifolds. But the lkit is 100% complete, and the car is actually sitting on the dyno. The instructions are written, and final. We did have to make a few changes for the automatic at the last minute, but that has already been addressed.

I will be installing the very first production unit around the first week of Feb, as well as showing you guys the 3.xH on the dyno. We have a purpose built 416 stroker that was built to pop... What do I mean??? well, were gonna kep turning the wick up until she blows. .Were gonna start with the 2.8, then go to the 3 and 4L head units. we want to show the capabilities of each unit in a purpose built application.

I can tell you this though. In the production kit, in order to keep the bost low, we had to run a much larger pulley. We were seeing 600rwhp when properly tuned, on a STOCK setup. Well, the pulley was so freaking large, that it was hitting the hood, so we had to run a slightly smaller pulley. This upped our boost higher than we wanted for our "Manufacturers Tune" kit. So in order to make the kit completely safe, we had to detune the spark tables, and a few other areas. This allows us to run a safe street tune, and clear the stock hood.

What does this mean?? It means with a few keystrokes of a compitent tuner, you will have a much more powerfull car by doing NOTHING.

Although pricing has not been publicly released, it is slated to run very very close to the other kits (Challenger kit). So expect them to retail in the mid 6K range. You CAN upgrade to the 3.XH, for a small fee. It should run right around 400-500 plus polishing. The larger head units are currently not avail in black, so if you had a black 2.8H, and wanted the 3 or 4L head unit, then it would be the cost of the polish, plus the upgrade. Hope that clarifys a few things.

Be looking out for new dyno sheets very soon, along with videos.

Please feel free to ask any technical question you like. Also, if you are interested in having one installed, hit us up. Theres no better place in the country, then the place that helps design them.

Both my company and Kenne Bell are in the process of becoming supporting vendors of this site, so dont hesitate to let us know your opinions. We will do our best to help in any way possible.

The kit is completely done. If you called and ordered one from TPE right this second, it would ship the first few days of feb.

We will be installing the first production kit in the coming weeks. This is not one of those kits where its being released without being avail.

Due to the holidays, there was a delay on some gearsets from europe, as well as the rear inlets. We are expecting to have the inlets in the next few days, and the gearsets shortly after that. Then, they need to be assembled.

1) Yes, the TB is a major restriction. The inlet was designed to be modular, and accept a variety of different size TB's. Currently, we have TB's all the way to 110MM's. But the largest restriction of all, and the part that was given the most possible attention, was the inlet. Now, its a monster. It flows like no tomorrow.

2nd question) No..

The big question is, do you have to cut the hood or drop the engine?

I know I'm interested in the results you find when you run a production unit. It'll be interesting to see how dissimilar/similar the results will be with other SCs out there. Can you tell me if it's going to also be run on a 100% stock SS?

Thanks and I look forward to the upcoming information

This is where the new patented design comes into play. YES, there is still an intercooler

Think of it as 2 cooling circuits. The first circuit is designed specifically to balance the head unit temps from back to front. By keeping these temps stable, it allows for a better operating, cooler head unit. The temp differential from back to front, is huge. By adding the head unit cooling, it balances them out, thus aiding in a cooler discharge, much greater life of front seals, and better overall durability. If you think of thermal expansion, then factor in bearings at both ends, plus add in rotors, you will quickly understand why it is so critical. Especially when you ingest ambient air in the rear, then compress it, and heat it up, finally discharging it at the front.

The 2nd circuit is for the intercooler itself. This is an air/water system that sits directly below the discharge port.

So with both systems you get a much cooler, much more balanced system.

The car is 100% stock.

Its a stock SS2 RS, with about 1500 miles. We are installing cutouts, but they most likely wont be on at that time.

Yes, injectors will be changed, but that comes with the kit. The WW reservoir is replaced, and relocated to the other side.

thanks

Are there any plans on making the 3.6 and 4.2 in black? I'm not really into the polished look.
