KB or TT??

Is it better to go with kb blower or a TT??? And then it would be safe to ride at 7-9 psi and i would jus need to get forged internals, thats it?? What are "all" the forged internals??

go turbo. forgred internals would be forged crank rods pistons, and if you want forced induction you might want to do a bit of valvetrain and exhaust upgrades.

KB Biatch
4 minute pulley change
NO LAG
+262 HP at 14 PSI and that includes all you need for the system minus the tune
plus you can get it fast whereas a turbo system would more than likely have to be custom built

KB = Feel the boost now or TT = wait for the boost to build up and then go!

with the technology and advancements in turbos these days, turbo lag is virtually non existance. I voted TT, hp performance TT kit is the best IMO http://www.turbochargedpower.com/

yeah fine then change the boost pressure down to like 9 psi then your running +160 HP
then when you take it to the track throw on a 12 or 14 # pulley and watch your timeslips go down

I'll remember that the next time I drill a turbo'ed car off the line while he waits for help.

KB is my vote. A nice flip chip and a 2 minute pulley swap and you can watch the turbo guys cry.

Yes it does, I mean, when you get into it and it starts whining real loud, it makes the cheeks hurt...from smiling so much Not to mention your poor passengers. Those that aren't car nuts well, their other cheeks start hurting from clenching so hard thinking they are going to die.

Hahaha....like the guy who rode with you when I came down...yelling to slow down the whole time. I was just enjoying the ride. I wasn't saying turbos are superior to superchargers, just that I prefer turbos in some situations. Depending on which engine I end up going with...I'll be supercharged in one situation and TT in the other. Either way it'lll be one fast car.

To quote Shelby, if you got turbo lag you ain't driving it right.

Anyone who can't launch under boost with a turbo needs driving lessons.

Hell, I killed many a ricer off the line or at highway speeds with my 14 psi boosted minivan. Kills them to see it too.

Twin Turbo.

Roots blowers are nice off the line but tend to fall flat on their face at high RPMs. If you size the turbos right, there will be no lag at all. The V6 guys are using Garrett T3/T4 Hybrids size 57mm and are spooling at 2,000 RPMs and making full boost at 2,500 RPMs and make boost all the way up to redline. You can probally add about another 40 horsepower since the turbo won't need to steal power from the engine to make power.

Plus there is nothing like the sound of a turbo spooled up and flying down the road. To everyone else, you'll sound like a jet going by.

boost is how much air is being FORCED into your engine, and if you get a kit it should have a warrenty unless it is custom built

boost is an addition to atmospheric pressure, say 5 psi is 5 more Pounds Per Square Inch, that are in youre engine. regular atmospheric pressure i believe is 14.7 psi. so you would have 19.7 psi which is an addition of 5 psi

You only get noticable turbo lag when you use turbos that are too large. Properly sized turbos would rock about any KB setup.


And boost is actually a measure of restriction. 2 cars with the same power adder and one having high flow heads/headers/exhaust... the one with the higher flowing parts will actually have less boost but more power.

And watch your engine go BOOM....

any time you upgrade to more boost, you should get a dyno tune for it. You could probably do this with a flip chip but ya don't want to push the edge too much.

Personally, I wouldnt get either. The KB for my car, gets full boost at 2000rpm, making it hard to get traction at the track. TT kits cost a lot, and I would have to get different exhaust. For you this isnt a big deal because your car is stock. Im going with a Vortech, and a nice little tune.

You can get traction just fine at the track with a KB, you just have to know how to launch it. You would launch at a lower rpm then with a centri blower.

Go with whatever you really want. People can tell you what they would go with all day long but it's all a matter of preference. Do you want to spend ~5g for a nice supercharger setup completely done or spend 6k plus for a custom TT setup that may or may not work correctly the first time it's tried on your car.

he wouldn't need a custom setup hp performance makes one that works beautifully for his GT. And with that kit, there is nothing else he needs to buy. unless he is going to forge so he can run bigger boost

www.turbochargedpower.com check it out, they make some good stuff

BTW here is an article on turbo v. blower, albiet it is from a somewhat biased source, it is still a good aricle http://www.turbochargedpower.com/Tur...%20Blowers.htm

well the flip switch goes without saying but if you had a good tune for the 14psi blower and forged internals(which he would need either way) then after you make a few passes then you switch back to 6 or 7 PSI
