which turbo kit? Rousch looks nice

OK, heres what I'm trying to do...I want to boost now lol, I was on the all motor/nitrous kick, but it won't give me the gains I want, nor can I spray or have the power everyday like I'd like to..

sooooo....since your kit isn't out anymore, I've been contemplating on either getting the hiboost or rousch turbo kit. I was going to think about going w/the precision, but i've found out they dont' make anything either anymore......but anyways, the rousch kit seems to have a really smooth delivery where as the hiboost has a big ass torque spike then torque falls on it's face....i'm not sure if that was a tune or what. Ray says he likes the Rousch kit, but i'm still trying to get some more incite, especially being I have til Spring to figure everything and get my money straightened out : )

but anyways, kit for kit, which one has more potential? and would have to be done to either of those kits to actually make legit power, when I say legit, i'd like to see somewhere along the lines of 300+whp if I could......I will build a bottom or go w/a low compression svt, but I haven't decided yet...

anyways, what's the better one to go w/. I want something that has reliable parts, and a kit that can support the power if I can......let me know what you think

btw, i'll be running the FR head, 2.5" flex-2.5" exhaust, pullies, FC TB, 00 ported intake mani., Fidanza cam gears, 8.8lb flywheel, and i'll probably go w/the boost grind cams Ray has made up : ) I know i'll need to get a J&S, boost gauge, and a better clutch, if I have anything else i'll need to get let me know also...

thanks

JRS
