Lol, Mark, good times. I wish we could have lined up. Are you talking about your C6?

Here are the two original threads:

I've had centris, turbos and n20. They all have their place and limiting to 700rwhp a centri would probably be fine. However if you're like most of us once you hit your goals you'll want more.

Turbos are more complex, generally speaking and I know there are forum members who have no belt issues, however with turbos there are no belts to break or maintain and if configured properly adjustable boost is very convenient.

Thanks for all the input guys. After much consideration I've decided to go the twin turbo route. Also decided today to switch back to my 3:42 diff since I'll be making so much more hp and tq.

In the TT or switching back to my 3:42 diff from my 3:90 diff for the build? Fortunately the 3:42 has C6Z internals. I've got 305s (Pilot Super Sports) on the rear so hopefully I won't be doing to many unintentional burnouts.
