    The Boss 302 Laguna Seca edition comes with many road-course orientated parts that separate it from the GT500. It uses the 5.0 motor and revs to 7500RPM, not to mention it is about 200lbs lighter I think, maybe more. The TVS will not add 200lbs, and I'm thinking it would put out great numbers at low amounts of boost while not overheating.

    For drag racing only and daily driver comfort, the GT500 no question.

    I would probably go with a centrifigual style blower. I'm a fan of the power delivery of the centrifis.

    You make a good argument although I would modify the GT500 with that awesome suspension setup that drops a ton of weight off it. I think it is Griggs?

    Really? Wow, after having a centri I'm totally a fan of twin screws now.
