If you have the money get the kb. No question about it. On3 is great I hear but as a past kb customer with auto, you'll be glad you went with a roots style blower

I was watching some vids on the Kenny bell guy had full exhaust and the 1.7 car moved pretty damn good! I've thought long and hard about what I want to spend and get down the road with this car and 400 wheel horse power is plenty! I wanted more but that more comes to the tune of around 16 grand and at 41 years old there's other things to throw that kinda money at. Damn look at me sounding all grown up! Lol

16 grand?! Holy cow. I built a motor and put a supercharger on my 2014 5.0 for less than that. Couldn't imagine you couldnt build a motor for these cars for less than 1/4th of that. I just bought a long block 4.6 out of an 05 grand marquis for $500 with 60k miles on it. Could easily take the heads off and clean them up and slap a cam on it and pop those rods out and upgrade for dirt cheap. Maybe I'm crazy though.

I would stick with the On3 as well. Didnt you mention you were going to pay $5k out the door, tuned and ready to drive for that? I remember thinking that was a great price for what you had mentioned a while back.

Steve 5k turn key for the turbo. I have the kit now minus a k-frame. Was just thinking about where I really wanted to be power wise and that kinda money Iam not going to dump into a car again. That's why I thought about the Kenny bell and exhaust and just call it quits.

I forget that you aren't trying to do any of the work yourself. So yeah 5k to install a turbo kit that you could install yourself sounds pretty common. I know plenty of guys who have spent a boat load on labor, and some prefer it that way. I try to do everything on my own except things I want to look professional like paintwork or anything that requires welding like a cage and such, but that's just me
