    Walk away. You'll end up spending more in the end.

I know itll probably get a ''its whats best for you'' or ''depends on what your lookin for''answer but am just curious as to what all the guys think?

    If you want quick inexpensive HP, Nitrous. A full kit is about $1000
    If you have the money, a Blower is the way to go. But that can run well over $5000.

    Don't forget filling the bottle. I'd probably never have a full one if I had nitrous.

    That'd certainly help. I'd still be making weekly runs to Summit for refills though. I gots a heavy foot.

    well here is the thing, its a complete base kit for 1200, i cant afford a procharger kit and i feel like Nos is the easy way out i would much rather be all motor or blown, at least for as long as possible. To be honest if i had 6k to spend on a blower id just get a brand new crate LSX motor

    Like others have said just walk away. In the end you will probably spend enough coin for that LSX crate motor to get it to work properly.
