my turbo build. "Project fastest street 5th gen" UPDATE: 03/25/13
 
UPDATE POST 10/27/13 post #488
I sold my silver fourth gen to start a new project. My 2010 Camaro I have had since new. It was my DD for about 8 months, after that I just drove it when the 2002 was down. Well now its time to spot light it. Trying to make tx2k13. Rundown on what I am doing.

-custom front mount turbo setup retaining everything but a/c but will keep if i can.
-Precision X275 88MM turbo
-Chisled 36x5 air/air intercooler
-Squash performance E85 in tank pump
-G-Force 9 inch IRS rear end (most likely)

I will update thread with pictures as we go.

The car:

Squash performance 1400hp E85 in tank setup. Very good guy to deal with and carries a nice warranty on the pump.

Intake

Finished tearing the car down last night, test fitted the intake. It will work perfect with the stock hood. Might switch to the 6061 elbow though.

Unavowed 12-10-2012 09:25 PM

Love the color. Best of luck with the build.

GaBoy25 12-10-2012 09:31 PM

GFORCE1320 12-10-2012 11:53 PM

Lookin good bud!
Let me know when your ready to bring it down for the 9" install.

Thanks
Chris

WOW what a turbo! That thing will be a beast. A Gforce 9" in that thing will be awesome!

Hendrix-Engineering 12-11-2012 07:48 AM

Looks like one heck of a build for the street! If we can help you out with a 9 inch that has proven itself with the record for the best sixty 1.29 and more 9 second Camaros as well as more miles than any 9 inch on the road,over 50,000 miles!,please give me a call and ill go over major differences and give you a price to make you smile...

CyberPredator 12-11-2012 09:50 AM

Looking great. Can't wait to see it I'm getting excited March is fast approaching!

The_Blur 12-11-2012 09:54 AM

Where are you going to put everything that goes under the hood? That turbo is huge!

WheelmanSS 12-11-2012 09:59 AM

Very Nice,

who is tuning?

Detoxx03 12-11-2012 10:03 AM

Awesome build. Can't wait for TX2K13. I wanna see you and Cyber Predator have a Cyber Grey Shootout.

Be aware that you will probably have to run more fuel and less timing to the rear cylinders because of the way the air flows around that elbow. I have something similar on my 10.5 car but it comes in from the rear and the front cylinders get all the air. Its not a problem just pull all the plugs and compare after some WOT pulls. I had to adjust something around 15% on my car from front to rear.

After I said this I wasn't sure the stock OS allowed this. I have Big Stuff on my racecar and it does. However I just looked and HP Tuners does allow a Static retard vs Cylinder and an Injector Gain vs cylinder. I have never used this with HP tuners and there is a warning that some operating systems can cause high rpm operational problems when using this.

I hope you over built that transmission. Ptc builds a great TC but I had quite a bit of issues in the past running their th400 untill I just it to my local guy and he found quite a few issue and got me squared away. Also if your not running 36 element sprag and drum and some billet shafts it won't last very long with a heavy car.

Stan, any plans to build a crazy fast 5th gen?
Stop by our shop sometime, we moved since last time we spoke.

Thanks

I have already been reading some stuff on the elbow. I guess we will see. This one isnt the super low profile one but if we run into this problem im sure we can fix it. If not, COPO hood and Holley high ram time.

Chris Derrick years ago had a wierd looking elbow that Mike Duffy from OKC built. It looked like a big 12 round air cleaner with a 5 in throttle body stuck in the side of it. It slowed the airflow down and made it come in from all directions. I thought it was goofy back then but now can see its advantages.

Another friend/customer of mine Dewayne Mills had a billet elbow made by someone, can't remember who, that had deflectors made into it to redirect the airflow. I don't think it really worked out that great. He still had to trim the cylinders differently.

Thanks Chris. I have lots of stuff I'd love to do to my 5th gen but allimony payments have put a damper on that for a while. :mad0259:

I will have to stop by sometime, Nice to have a great vendor so close to home.

GFORCE1320 12-11-2012 02:43 PM

We look forward to you dropping the car off for your 9" kit Justin. Thanks for your order! See you in a couple weeks.

Thanks,
Casey

stangkilr 12-11-2012 02:48 PM

Thanks Casey! Thanks for working with me to get me what I need to keep this
thing on the road. Should be a fun ride when finished.

Ivan @ Southwest Speed 12-11-2012 03:20 PM

Stupid sick build....makes me happy inside. Good luck and see you in Houston!

Ivan

JLE58 12-12-2012 12:42 PM

What heads are you going to run? and how fast are you wanting to run?

se7en 12-12-2012 02:17 PM
