Some people just prefer to take care of the little things first. The boltons aregoing to allow your motor to breath better which will only help with the blower. I personally put in all the suspension i needed and got a good set of track tires and a built rear with 4.10s as well. Theres nothing that makes me laugh more than a guy showing up at the track with a blown car that is running mid to low 13s cuz he hasnt done the right things to make it hook, while im going 12s with a bolton car.

it all depends on what your goal is with your car. when i bought my car it was bone stock and i wanted to some day have it over 500rwhp, so i started with all of the bolt ons, then i built my motor, with blower cams because i knew someday i'd have a s/c, and i just bought my supercharger setup (had the car almost 6 years now), but it's going to pay off in the long end. if you want quick numbers, go with the forced induction, but if you plan on keeping the car and going big with it, stay n/a, build your motor, get your bolt ons, then when you do put a s/c or turbo on it, you'll get much more out of it. just FYI, my car with a forged 302 stroker, 10.5:1 compression, stage 2 heads, stage 2 cams, full exhaust, i put down 331rwhp and 368rwtq, but it cost enough money to buy a couple superchargers to do it lol.

In the debate between N/A vs F/I, I say take the best of both worlds and grab a bottle of boosty juice, that way you can have the everyday drivability of a N/A car and still be able to have the smile inducing power of an F/I car.

A centrifugal blower car is VERY STREETABLE. The power doesn't kick in until 2500-3000rpms. The average driver does right around 3000rpms give or take so around town it's totally fine. I can tell you because I have one.

But.... F/I will definitely make more power for a lot less $$$. As far as cool factor... "I" think anyone can bolt a blower on......hahaha

+1 I love n/a motors like the new boss 302 motor spinning to 8k is just sick, but at the same time a I think a Tork tech 2v is sweet too lol ( I compared apples to oranges I know) it just depends on what you like and what your budget is

If the 2v had the output stock of the 5.0 or boss it would be a bad *** n/a ride and if it responded to bolt ons like those motors did to that would also be bad ***. But we all know in comparison how the 2v responds to bolt ons or how much it can cost going the na route and the gains you get from it.
