Hope you tried house of boost i have tried the rest pretty much do a Dsx flex fuel you have plenty of e85 in your area. I wouldn’t do a ess kit based with a Paxton or vortech supercharger. Also do at least a d1-sc

Why is that? It has a far superior belt routing design, its 10 rib and has better intercooler. Plus you can get it fitted with a range of different blowers from 650-1400 HP.

I would do a P-1X or D-1X over a P-1SC. That will give you plenty of room to grow to as much as around 1000whp (D-1X).

When you want more power (and you will), just pulley the blower down.

Some people don't mind paying for a name. They do have a good product but it's overpriced.

To answer the question about pricing they both are in the ballpark, they aren't gouging you.

If that’s the cost to have someone else install a centri blower kit and tune it, I need to open my own shop. Glad I do my own work.

I used to do side work when I had time years back. Even at $50 per labor hour I made good money and people saved. I understand the overhead though. Running business is not cheap or easy. Glad I have the skill set is all.

Definitely helps especially if you’re a car junky. If I only had time, and knew how I’d save a ton of money with all my builds.

I would do everything but tuning. I spend a lot of time with my tune. Not sure how tuners make money if they spend hours dialing it in like I do.
