How much RWHP can I get to with $10K?

Just bought my 2011 SS/RS LS3 tonight...
How much power can I add with a $10K budget, and which kits would you recommend?
Should I bump my budget up a bit higher for a better kit (if so, which)?

I am looking to get to 600RWHP+

turbo kits can give u anywhere from 130wheel to 170+ stock boost-6500$-7500+ range, or a magnacharger can get you 130wheel for around $6k then get a g6x3 cam from lg motorsports can get u i believe 70+wheel for $500 plus i believe u need springs lifters etc.. so with a combo if there with headers and a tune u can be right below or above 600wheel. if anything i said was incorrect please feel free to correct me

The TT kits seem to be cost effective for big power.

Any pros & cons between the Granatelli and IPS twin turbo kits?

The IPS TT kit is looking very promising! Great power gains. Not sure the price of it though. But I am partial to the Garret turbos. I have seen the GT35R's they are using put out some serious numbers on other vehcle applications and if I had the money this would be the kit I would be getting!

Our complete turn-key twin turbo kit is $7995 and includes everything needed to make 600rwhp at 6# of boost. If in the future you decide to build the motor and turn up the boost you can simply turn the knob on a boost controller. No need to drop an extra grand on headers or swap pulleys and belts to make more boost. Search Hellion on here and you'll see some very satisfied customers. Please PM me if you have any questions.

Thanks! - Jeff

Any of the turbo kits ie. IPS, TTi/Granattelli, Hellion, Turbonetics can be had for less than 10K and all can make 600rwhp on the stock block. If you want to turn it up later the TT is the perfect platform but you should build the engine to handle the extra power if you want 700+ hp.

Going the TT route myself. The upgrade path is much easier and cleaner in my opinion. 10K is plenty to get you there. Although you are going to want to beef up the suspension shortly after but you can do that in stages.
