NEW TRUCK FOR RXP-Opinions....
Hey I am going to be picking up a AWD Trailblazer SS in the beginning of Feb and want to add some boost.
Would you go with a Vortech or Kenny Bell
Turbo? I figured if i have to get an SUV to tow my ski...I should get something with some nuts..

why not just go all motor, heads, cam, intake, headers, full exhaust and a tune?
if you are going blower, i would go vortech or procharger. from what i have seen and experienced LS motors do not respond well to a twin screw style supercharger.
if you are going turbo, HP Performance, Pro-Turbo Kits, Lingenfelter, STS Turbo. there is quite a few options.
i would personally do a blown 427 stroker... something with around 9.0:1 compressiong running on 12 LBS. of boost

Radix on the TB hands down!!!! Be nice to that tranny, expecially with an AWD. You may be calling Finish Line for a built unit pretty soon.
On a side note if your set on a turbo.. Stay away from the butt-turbos (STS) aka gutter suckers. Combination Motorsports has a bad ass front-mount setup!

The jeep is more expensive and I already have a car-can't afford it, not to mention for the money considering I leave nothing I have alone and stock, the SS is a better choice.
I had a Mustang Cobra with a vortech pushing 430 to the tires. I know all about stangs and vortechs. That hobby cost wayyy to much at my age.
I am thinking of just slapping a vortech or Procharger, some new injectors, MSD, exhaust, intake and fuel pump. I think with low boost settings it will be fine on the LS2.
Thanks for the input fellas. I may go NA too....that's always fun.

Take it from me, Ive ran 18lbs of boost on a LS based motor makin 987RWHP, ATI is the way to go. I have a AWD Tblzr SS to tow stuff with when i want to drive in the rain. But a cam, and GOOD tuner and produce 440 RWHP, and Ive seen them. Thats $2000 for that power, but be ready, your trans, or front end WILL FAIL, they all do, I see them at the dealership all the time.
