very well said... and i agree with you 100% :shake:Back in 2003, I thought 350rwhp and a 14 second time slip is all I would ever need. The radix was the best kit for me 4 years ago and Magnacharger sponsored me. I gained 120rwhp the day Magncharger installed it and it had a CARB number. I think for 500rwhp, the Magnacharger is the most complete kit to get you there. I always say that.
And for most people, that is enough. It is us in here that always want more and more, and unfortunately with the radix, there are limitations and effeciency issues that arise as power levels get higher. It is not as easy as bolting on a bigger turbo or turning a knob to crank up the boost to make more power.
I never knew I was going to get this far into it, nor did I have the knowledge to put together a good turbo system. In hindsight with goals to make over 500rwhp, I would step to a front mount turbo system. I think I have maxed out my radix combo which should be good for 500rwhp with full supporting mods. It has excellent driveability, can tow, and will still get decent gas mileage. Hoping for the lower part of the 12's the next time at the track. I am hoping suspension work and weigh reduction will get me into the high 11's.
my buddy has a shop here locally, he is in pretty tight with kenne belle and installs alot of their products. hes told me about fitment issues, and that the intake is kind of "ghetto" rigged. supposedly they are working on the fixes.What bugs? This is a kit that I would willing to sell my radix for...
