Default Kenne Bell 1.7 opinions

I also have a 2004 Mustang GT 4.6 2v. I would like some opinions on a Kenne Bell 1.7.

The best roots charger you can buy IMO. You'll love it as long as you have all the supporting work done (Full exhaust, ect) A nice set of cam's would definitely help out as well. HiTech Motorsport makes some kick *** cam grinds for kenne bell 2V kits, you might want to check them out here:

You can't go wrong with a KB. The 1.7L is a pretty small blower, but it's plenty
for a stock shortblock 2V. It's got enough to twist the stock rods like pretzels.

Personally, I would never recommend a blower application. Turbo is the only way
to go. Now, if you don't have the financial means or don't want a turbo car then
a blower is the next best thing. Nitrous would be option 3 for me.

It'll happen eventually. It's inevitable since I'm not happy with the power
the 2.2L KB is making. I want 800+rwhp.
