IMO....I dont think you could go wrong with the 2013 GT500 Eaton 2.3L Roots-type supercharger with what your current goal is in mind......and some extra power to work with in the future.

Have to go with the TVS if you’re looking for 650 RWHP. Can get there with the Eaton, but would have to go very high boost, cams, long tubes, aggressive tuning, and tons of cooling mods.

There were various iterations of the 2.3 TVS. Better flow tends to follow the historical chronology as follows, for an "as cast" housing:
FRPP TVS
VMP Gen I
Trinity
VMP Gen 2
VMP Gen 2R

I would agree but swap the Trinity and Gen 2. The 2R is king of the 2.3 TVS with the Trinity second IMO.
They’re great blowers for up to 750-800rwhp.

Note, I said "as cast". We're not talking ported or aftermarket elbows. Gen 2 doesn't have the bolt on elbow, so it wasn't as restrictive. I had Jay port my Gen 2 and it was more like a 2R when he was done with it.

Lund has phased out the 07-09 GT500 anyway. I recently spoke with them. They no longer tune it or sell the Ngauge, which is what they tuned it with. They no longer support SCT Tuners either. He said they are concentrating on the 13+ cars

Good to know. I have talked to many who frequent this forum about their unwillingness to work with tunes you are not quite satisfied with. It all boils down to their time and profit margin. So where does that put the consumer? In a position to start over with someone else, which is disgusting. All your time and money down the toilet through no fault of your own. They must not believe in 100 percent customer satisfaction. Like I've said countless times, take total control and learn to do this yourself. It is not rocket science! I was a mere missile engineer so I'm not that smart.

Lund won't touch 3 valves either. Heard that on Alex Flores YouTube podcast. He just laughs when people ask him if they will tune a 3 valve.

I knew they stopped supporting the 07-09's. They had no issue remote tuning my 2010 and it runs great, zero issues. They did tune my car with the nGauge I've had for 2 years. I've used them since 2015, when I had my 2012 GT with a 2.9 Whipple. If for some reason they stop supporting my car, I will just switch over to BJ.

I had Lund remote tune my 2010 in 2019 while stationed in Italy. No issues at all and service was quick. This was using their nGauge as well.

BJ is very good. He knows these cars very very well. He walked me through my Gen2R build-up and answered many many questions before the swap, during and after he tuned it. He'll keep it safe and reliable.
