If he wanted a turbo, he would have said it, obviously he wants mind blowing torque and a huge power band, tell me a turbo has that

turbos make great torque

not compared to a roots set up, and turbos don't kick in till 3,000rpm, and besides, the more boost you want, the higher the rpm has to be to reach full boost. a roots will put you at almost full boost at around 1,500 rpm

also it was around 7-8 psi, it takes a higher psi because of the location and the amount of tubing.

The KB has better clearance than the whipple. But a ball bearing turbo will spool up around 2500 with the LS Gun.

not to shoot turbos down or anything, but in order to run more boost, you change around what rpm a turbo will kick in, turbos are great for race applications where you are keeping the engine revs high and the turbo spooled up.

a big down side for the sts kit is the location (all the way in the back of the car), if you were to fab your own kit and located the turbo right after the y-pipe, you would gain around 2-3psi on the kit, and possibly less turbo lag do to less exhaust tubing in front of the turbo
