Has anyone here installed this kit? I know this is not as extensive as a L67 swap, and overall seems a bit expensive, but it also seems like a well-engineered kit for something that can be done in an afternoon.

The only reason I would consider this is because I wont be racing the car and I don't need balls-out power mods. I've gotten responses on other boards that say do the turbo instead, but as silly as it might sound, I'm not nuts about the noise a turbo makes. On the other hand, the whine of a blower is something I've heard but never owned...so it has some appeal on that level.

For a bolt-on kit that will easily deliver another 60hp vs a complete top end swap with all the pulleys, brackets and balancer, it feels viable, even if it is a bit pricey. I guess I've got certain limits to what I'm willing to tackle in the garage, and pulling cylinder heads on an engine still in the car is not my first choice.

If it were me (and it almost was a few times), I'd be trying to find that LIM for sale used for less, along with the special fuel rails. You can get the blower elsewhere.
