    Over here in australia we have lots of roots style blowers from reputable companies, Many of them export to many countries for a good price. If you want pm me for more info.

    Ive have drivin many cars with roots type blowers, But nothing can beat the rush of turbo's.Ive just installed a twin turbo kit to my ls1 and nothing can beat the power delivery.

    Good luck with whatever you choose..

    You won't find a roots type blower that will fit under the dash of a 4th gen fbody. Some people have done it though. It takes some fabbing up, you have to do some cutting, mainly to the windshield wiper support etc. IMHO I'd go turbo, that's what I want to do, when the money permits. Goodluck.

    Eaton has one for the LT's, they might have one for the LS's or one in the works.
