Thanks I'll probably go that route it's more badass

The only problem with the KB is trying to keep the tires from breaking loose. With a procharger the power is made up high which promotes traction because it doesn't come on until about 2500-3000rpms. With a KB your power is low to mid RPM range which can indeed make a fun street car but unless your rear end is built you're going to break something sooner than later because your rear isn't built. The other thing is that on the top end it doesn't make much power. On a centri blower that's not the case. I don't have to build my rear end because I'm not going to be hardly straining it when I launch and when I'm racing the top end from the centri blower is going to help out a lot. The other thing is blower whine. I don't have anything against a KB but I don't like the way the blower whines. It sounds like a pig getting slaughtered to me but I know to someone else it must sound like a beautiful melody to their ears. You can see how a centri blower acts by the video I posted below. I have some Nitto 555R's on and all they do is chirp and I'm making 383rwtq at the tire. Given this video is a little dated because I've had this blower on a while it can show you how centri blowers act at the drag strip.

where did this idea come that KB's are gods of all blowers? I guess when people see them on termi's making 700hp...

Like said, its all in what you want. If you want to roast tires than go for a KB. If you want to make more power with rpm than go centri.

procharger im a little biased, but couldn't be more happy with my decision to get the D1SC. like people stated, makes power higher in the power band, and as we all know it is hard to keep the tires from breaking loose.
**the kb whine is sick tho...
