Mounts etc. might not work in the h-body, comes with no tuning medium, they said thier early kits had missfires, no L67 TB, and it just generally dosen't seem 100% complete.

I prefer nitrous or a turbo, not a supercharger. After all, they whine too much

i think nitrous is the easy way to get hp. its too easy to break stuff with nos, and i dont want to refill my hp.

turbos are cool, but there too expensive. im doin my swap and im going to just about break even for the basics, of course im spendin big bucks in mods.

That'* fine, if you want to disagree with me. Personally, I like the appeal of nitrous and a turbo. Granted, nitrous can cause havoc if not set up right or the motor is not tuned properly for it. But if the motor and trans was beefed up and tuned for nitrous, it can be quite a beast. But for quick and low hassle, I would opt for a turbo designed for the 3800.

id rather have a 'real' poweradder as apposed to filling a bottel up...and you cant use nitrous all the time....while a turbo...you dont get instant power...but you can make carzy power....the SC is the best streetablity poweradder outthere
