This is the single biggest thing to happen in the v6 community up to this point, so pretty easy to understand we are all anxious for Thurs and the weekend to come!
I (we) very excited to see actual numbers, but getting detailed feedback, pictures and a maybe a video or two will give us so many answers to questions that have been populating around FI and the v6. (Not to mention we want to see how many ponies this will unlock!)
But this is really great - we'll all on the edge of our seats waiting to see what you can share with us!
Thank you thank you for ordering and installing this kit! - (But please also include a list of parts this kit has as their website does not mention anything yet) - Also let us know what extras you ordered (such as the ball bearing turbo option, etc - and share what those prices were if you dont mind sharing)
Main parts are the STS 62 T4E P-Trim JB (601) Turbo, 38 mm 7psi wastegate, 50mm BOV, and Tuning package (Trifecta Tune) and of course all the piping, oil pump, washer fluid relocation etc. which is part of the "Tuner Single Turbo Kit". Base cost was $5,995 for all of the above.
I upgraded to Ball Bearings - $700 and Ceramic Coating - $95.
It is recommended that you install a boost guage and widebanf A/F guage. FYI, don't buy their pillar pod cause they sent me one for a 4th gen. I am still discussing with them on giving me back $52.95 for that. I ended up buying the Fesler dual gauge pillar pod which is fiberglass. Kind of expensive but its the only one that was ready to ship (I was impatient). Cost for that is $125 plus shipping. Gauges can run $200 plus. I have AUTOMETER Gauges that cost me about $750. I know ADM has some cool gauges as well.
I am still discussing with STS on adding a water/meth injection kit (their standard kit is $499) with an electronic boost controller. They have to work out some issues on how to activate the injection and should have a solution for me soon. This should allow me to run more boost and better timing, I hope.
I was thinking about adding the ZEX system seeing how Rod1 ran a 12.7. I was hoping to hit that kind of number with the Turbo. I have been discussing with STS whether a 50 shot would help. Not sure how much our motors can take. Also concerned with the rear end shafts. Anybody know if we can upgrade those. I've seen many V-8 threads where they twist the sh** out of those.
Will get some pics up by Thursday evening (Hawaii Time) and Vid's over the weekend!
