You'll need to adjust your sensitivity on your right foot pressure.

No blower installation for me today. This weather is reeking havoc with my instant gratification thing.

We'll try again in a few weeks.

After going back and forth and resisting peak HP numbers from a centri blower, I decided to go with the Edelbrock Eforce. It helped that Edelbrock reduced the price on the blower.

I didn't know they built these to order and were way backed up. I got "the call" from Chris at ECS and the blower finally arrived this morning. Waiting now for the scheduled install day(s). I'll drive up early and drive home the next day with an additional 150HP. The instant torque with the top mount will be insanely fun.
