Default Looking for new blowers, any opinions?

I'm starting to do some work on a winter project. I'm trying to find the best way to go with Blowers. I know a lot of guys are going to PSI's which are an option for the, the only problem is they make the engine so tall you need monster scoops. I know there were some cool looking ones at the boat show but really don't want to be a Guinea pig again. If anyone has had good success with something that makes big power please let me know. I want unbiased opinions. I know some of you motor guys try everything!

How about the new 5.0L Whipples? I know Gary Taylor has a done a few motors with them recently with really good success.

The PSI looks so cool along with the power as well.

What about something like this? Low profile and Tomcat tested it at Sterling at something like 1800 hp. http://www.rtechperformance.com/biggun.html

I agree with Patriyacht. The R-tech stuff is the real deal. Got a buddy of mine that was part of the original prototype and the boat/motor is amazing

Thank you for the responses. I saw R Tech at a show. I will call them today. The new Whipple may be an option. Thank you.

Have you looked into turbos, they are capable of making incredible horsepower
