Eskle runs 10 on race gas and 8 on pump gas. With the cold air at Atco it was making about 11psi according to the datalogs.

And we all know the Whipple makes great off idle torque. My 1.49 60' says so! Lol

I know I'm biased but I would do the procharger all over again. My D-1 has been on my jeep for about 6k miles now an I have had Zero issues with it. I haven't driven it lightly either. As for a DD it is very friendly, you can adjust the spring on the race valve to close at what ever point you like. Not many people screw with this it seems like but I adjusted mine where it dumps at constant speeds and closes as soon as I accelerate. You wouldn't know it was blown. The install is very simple and literally anyone can do it, took me maybe half a day to install everything. What took me the longest was making a fuel hat setup. If I was to do that part again I would of just made/bought a new fuel hat from scratch instead of trying to make my stock one work. I'm not current with the cost of a routes style blower but I know the procharger setups have a awesome package for a reasonable cost.

It all depends on what your power goals are? Maybe since you just want it for the street mainly what 0-60 times are you looking for? Longevity wise I'm not sure how the routes style blowers hold up but I would think they would generate considerably more heat.

For ease of use, I would suggest whatever your shop that is tuning the truck is familiar with so you avoid any problems. That being said power goals and budget come into play. I'm more than happy with the Vortech w/ powercooler I have on a 100% stock truck forgot Kooks+Corsa that's it (trans, motor, axles, diff/transfer case) other than 295s+t-stat I went 11.66@116 (1.65 60ft) on on 9psi w/ meth. I was a little weary with the heatstroke of the Vortech kits but with the aftercooler and meth I have had practically none. I went 11.73, 11.72, 11.69 then 11.66 no cool down on the truck after an 1hr drive to the track while racing along the way.

My Maggie has been issue free with the exception of an alignment issue soon after the install. I have over 10,000 miles on the jeep since. This includes driving to Florida, racing at Bradenton and driving home.
I've never regretted installing this blower on my jeep. I have however thought long and hard about going with more engine and a turbo. I have since grounded my thirst for more power. I'm going to just enjoy my rig and continue racing and having fun!!
