I know everyone hates this, but "sell your car and buy a terminator"...this is real world advice, not magazine reading BS
I am so sick of this type of answer, if he wanted a terminator he would of asked, "how much is an 03/04 cobra?" i mean come on if the answer was terminator all the time we would have no need for the tech forum.

OP... my opinion go KB it looks nicer and i believe will grow as the need or want for more hp arises.

i have the kb 9psi kit and love it, i've talked to others who weren't too impressed with the non-intercooled kit, save and buy it all when ready. my factory fuel pump handled the 9psi but the maf did not, it really leaned out the motor at the end of the 1/4 mile and really backed fired hard!!! also definatley get it tuned i found several problems with my kenne bell tune (fuel curve not very good, engine running hot) after tune no more hot engine and safe fuel curve with better torque throughout.
