Default Good Blower Company Needed

I'm looking to step up the supercharger for my new engine and would like to deal with a reputable company. I’m a bit leery because the company I purchased the engine parts from were a despicable group that cost me a ton of money in rework.
Currently I have a 671 from Weiand that I ran on my old motor (408 cuin SBC) and made about 9 lbs of boost 4% over driven. The car is a tubbed 57 Chevy street car that I run on pump gas. I just built a DART blocked 434 with 230 Pro 1 heads, bullet cam, JE pistons, etc.
I spoke with someone from RBS Superchargers and they sounded very knowledgeable, but does anyone have any experience dealing with them? Also, they recommended me buying a new supercharger (871 or 1071) with the entire offset shifted forward so that I don’t have any clearance issues with the distributor. Does shifting the blower forward create any performance problems I should consider?
Any help would be appreciated.

I live in New Jersey but I don't think anybody is local to me. I have no problem working long distance though.

You can call South State Speed in Hackensack. 201-498-1555.

I believe they only build blower motors and are dealers as well.

My SBC runs great after 2 years of hard abuse.
