    Car is looking great. Crazy power with the new setup? Looks like it should freakin' shred the tires.

    How do you feel regarding the supercharger vs. the turbo?

    Stop light to stop light, the Whipple was more fun. Above 50mph, the turbo shines over the blower, pulls ridiculously . Absolutely no flat spots in power production with the turbo till red line. If I had to do it over, I would have at least tried a 100 shot via a plate kit on the Whipple to see how it responded. I was missing/desired more top end when I had the blower and was already maxing it out.

    I can blow the current tires off at any speed imcluding highway speeds....fun and scary. Gonna switch it up with some 15" radials for traction and safety! Later on, hope to have some custom beadlock rears and 17" front runners.

    Glad you are getting it out and driving it. I remember when you pulled it apart not long after you finished it. I was baffled. It looks like you are liking the turbo setup. So, are you all setup up at your new place then?

    btw, are you using hp tuners or efi live for tuning? Or something different. I'm planning an ls swap and want to see which is preferred.
