On my car I don't see full 8 Ib of boost until around 4K. I was on KB site and they say they have full boost at 2K. Are you really seeing full boost at 2k with the KB if so this is a major gain also?

I do not have a KB so I am not really in the position to say but, I would think the KB would respond similar to how the eaton responds, except at a much more powerful level. I remember Stracer saying its cool watching the boost go up with the rpms. So, just like how the eaton will give 1/4 or half boost instantly and then works up to 8 by 4-5krpm, the KB probably does the same except it might start at around 8psi and then go to 13-17psi or whatever your running. I wouldn't think the KB would run 22psi at 2k rpm. But like I said, I probably shouldn't have even posted because I don't have one :)

I need to get a KB who has the best price on them, I talked with Strictly Performance in St.Louis and he said if I bought 2 he could do 3400 each, is that a good deal?

My understanding is KB requires strict adhearance to pricing on their blowers so anyone saying they will do it for less is asking for trouble with KB.

OK. Now this threads gotten real interesting. I'm in the market for 2 KB's, and any savings I can get would only help. 2 KB's for less than 7K is right up my alley. Any PM's for me??????

there is one thing to think about when ordering kb's. How fast do you want them. the fastest and most cost efficient way to get hem is through pete at pj's performance. he is the largest distributor of them and gets them on a regualr basis. I have a friend that orderd and paid for one about 2 montyhs ago and still has not received it from kb when it took me 4 days. they cost like 3600 or something like it. that is the best way to take care of it in my opinion. besides when you have q's you will want to talk to him and kb is always buisy.

Pete said he drop ships right from KB and that decreases ship time and cost. Also Pete is a very busy person as would be expected. I called a couple times this week and you don't get through every time on the first call sometimes you will get a busy tone. So just hang-up wait a couple minutes and try again. When I did get through he came right to the phone and was very friendly and talkative on the phone and in no way tried to rush me off the phone and actually does the opposite we were talking about different options and even the board. Go anyway you want, but I am going with Pete and his prices seemed very reasonable to me.

I got my setup including bassani catback and catted x from pete as well, and the KB is drop shipped but still took 3 weeks or so, not petes fault of course, kb just gets behind sometimes.
