IPS "Entry Level" Twin-Turbo Kit
 
We are still in the testing-stages right now but here are a few pics:

The goal for this kit is simple: Chop a considerable amount of cost from our current kit without sacrificing reliability or longevity at all. To that end 90% of the components are the exact same (Including the Tial WG's and BOV and 4" FMIC) with the big change being the turbos. They are still 100% genuine Garrett, but not billet or ball-bearing which saves a good deal of money. The A/R is smaller at .82 but we are still testing to find out what effect this will have on "Bolt-on" applications. The other necessary change based on turbos was the use of T3 flanges and 2.5" downpipes. Obviously this kit will not prove capable of making the "Big power" numbers our existing kit does right out of the box but we think for those looking for a simple bolt-on kit capable of making 600+ whp it will fill a nice role in our offerings.

Mark (Carlyle) was kind enough to "Donate" his car for testing and thus far in 2 pulls we have made 560rwhp and 565 ft/lbs through the stock Auto on his bone-stock car. Injectors are being upgraded and we will get final #s today or tomorrow.

We are still crunching numbers but the "Goal" price for the kit is $5995 if everything works as it does on paper. Once we have this confirmed the kit will be added to the website and available for ordering :)

This will make for an awesome entry kit--especially for that price. How much boost were you pushing to make that power on Mark's car? Also, is it possible to upgrade to the ball bearing/billet turbos in the future without many problems or fabrication? I'm hoping to be over at your shop with my car within the next month or two getting a kit installed!

It was pretty abbreviated (All of 2 pulls) because we were curious what it might be able to make on 100% stock injectors. With injectors in it today we plan on running 8-9psi like we did before to see a true apples-to-apples comparison to his "Old" GT3586 kit that we will then be putting back on and doing a final tune.

Our hunch is that it is going to be pretty close in terms of power and a little better response at the sub 10psi boost level.

What is the growth potential for this kit? I am eyeing the 650/650 range so on a LS3 it seems like this may be doable.

Also are you looking at the same install time?

:popcorn: Those numbers are pretty much exactly where I want to end up (for now anyway). Have you guys had a chance to install this on a M6?

*If* the kit ends up pretty close to the 600rwhp # on an Auto car it will make 650rwhp on a 6-speed car with no issues at all. The plan is to sell this prototype kit to a local client so we can then dyno it 100% as-is on his 6-speed so we have solid #s for both.

The install time will be slightly less than our "Normal" kit (Intake doesn't need removed and oil lines are much easier to install) by comparison.

My god amazing

Y'all are killing me. In a good way. Just when I decided I couldn't afford to go TT you come out with this. I really wanted your other kit. I was ready to 'settle' for headers and cam. Now this. I hope upgrading wont be to difficult if I decide to go big down the road. Please don't take to long to finalize this because I'm not sure how long I can wait. :drool:
