Default FRPP Whipple vs Kenne Bell vs Roush TVS?

What is the best choice for a daily driver aiming around 550-600 rwhp in florida (if weather matters)?

I have been looking quite intently at the mammoth 2.8l through Kenne Bell. Claims that due to larger size, it can produce more power more efficiently that the others at a lower psi. =Less strain on the motor. The 2.8l on 93 octane with 10psi is approx 610 rwhp. I am in Florida as well, as we know during summer months it rains a sh*t ton. One concern I have with the Kenne Bell is the relocation of the CAI. Being in the fender in front of the tire could be exposed to water.

VMP TVS kit! You get a Roush CNC ported blower, VMP High flow elbow, options to upgrade your heat exchanger and injectors.

So its basically the same as the roush but ported? What exactly does porting do, increase efficiency and reduce heat?

Looks like it has a few other useful options too.

Just increases airflow.
What makes this TVS kit so attractive is you get a better heat exchanger than what most other kits offer. This will definitely help with heat soak. And you get a choice between ID725 and ID1000 injectors. IMO, this is the best 2.3 PD blower kit available.

We offer either the FRPP Kit at a great price or in your instance where your just looking for 550-600rwhp I'd recommend the Magnuson TVS for quick easy install and drivability...we can order you one at a great price and also since you live in Florida we can do the install in a day for you at $700. (1k for the FRPP kit if you'd like us to get you one of those instead) Hope some of this info helps...

There is the link on the site! Mid 600's is easily achieved. We installed one on CFM Performance's 5.0 (auto car) that makes 620rwhp & is consistently runs 10.70s. The kit goes on with no cutting whatsoever and no grinding of the front timing cover. If you have any further questions please ask!
