Your choices are interesting....your gonna use baby blowers on a built motor? And then your going to use tiny injectors on a built motor?

Why a 3 angle vs getting a full cnc port?
Why a junk 2 mani vs custom hi flow plenum mani?

All that money running through an eBay header?

Your list sounds like very little research has been done with no concrete goals established.

My opinion is set a power goal - set the use - set the budget

Once you do that you can actually get some opinions going. Right now I would say it's a Mickey mouse setup for a street car from the parts list.

Yea it's a bit sloppy had no interest in going FI in the beginning hence the 410cc injectors and the eBay headers we're just a mistake but like I posted before I have more parts on hand I have 1000cc injectors stock mani ported I'm going with those FI choices because I don't want any to crazy but you did bring up a lot of good points thanks

At this point, going forced induction with whatever option you choose is almost better to start over since you are going in a completely new direction than when you started. back to the drawing board. narrow down which of the three kits you want, then choose the supporting mods around that main power plant choice. IMO its just better to build the supporting mods around your main power plant.

With a built low comp block turbo seems to make the most sense. If you were stock compression I'd definitely say the Kraftwerks kit would be the best option. I'm running a kw kit on stock block power and reliability has been good.

I agree with Ragin, if you've got upgraded valvetrain and block components you should look into going turbo. You'd have the potential for some serious power. Plus it sounds like you already have some supporting mods for that kind of setup like 1000cc injectors and SK2 fuel rails.

A supercharger benefits from being less heat and more reliable, but you'll be limited in how much power you can make down the road. Still not a bad option though. We have killer pricing on the Kraftwerks kits!
