Why NOT...? Heh! The same reasons that folks say they can spool a single large turbo so you don't notice lag are even MORE applicable to smaller twins and they're bottom mounted so there's less heat in the engine bay.

why not ?? my question to you,, when you have that much displacement take advantage of it.

plus to make the same power you are making with 2 snails you would need one big turbo and much more boost that means more lag and lag is not good,,, i love fast spool

the guys at rockland standard gear have the parts you need i just got mine redone after i broke my tranny at the track they even have a close ratio modle of transzilla that will handle 1000 ft lb of torque those carbon fibor syncro rings feel like butter.

They don't list a tranny for the 2010 just the older Fbody... the 'son of tranzilla' would be great if they have one thats a straight bolt in for the 2010. Do they have a TR6060 version for the SS or just the T56?
You sent yours to them for a rebuild right?

Here's a few pics from the SuperChevy show here in Houston a few weeks ago. My car took best 2010 in 'modified' class AND amazingly they gave it 'best Camaro' overall including the fully restored and amazing classics that were there! I'm VERY impressed they had the cajones to give that award to a late model...

Love the EGA's on the sides! I have one of those myself. I put it there because I thought it would make my car just as badass but...I was wrong.
