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

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.
