The HeatKiller 3.0 is getting good results, as is the Apogee GTZ

From the tests I've seen so far, the HK is out in front while the GTZ and the Supreme are about even. The Koolance 350 is another option. The Koolance and the EK are more restrictive blocks than the other two.

Ah sorry, I missed that you asked about the LT

Here's a good test done by HESmelaugh at the RRT forums.
