You are definitely an inspiration to all of us with the V6 engine.
Thanks, I used StopTech on my LS1 and thought they are great brakes and were cheaper then Brembo or Baer. They are 6 piston fronts, 4 piston rears, with 12 inch rotors. Should look great once I get my Forgeline Rims installed.

Z, did you have any problem mounting the front fascia over the intercooler? Do you have any pictures from the front of the car after everything has been put back on?

Where does the oil come out of on the motor when it gets pumped back to the turbo?

I was definately impressed with Rod1's 1/4 mile time. But I must tell you, this Turbo sound is definately different (and noticable) compared to stock. Sound will be posted soon!

No problems with front facia. If you look at the pictures, its inside the bumper support and above the bottom support, which the facia goes right around. Actually, there is a lot of room in there.....wonder if GM had plans for this space??? I'll get a picture when I get home of the front. Right now I have the stock facia and just took off the lower "grille" to show off the bling. I am actually waiting for a custom front facia from Unrestricted Motorsports which has a bigger lower opening which should show the intercooler nicely through a mesh grille. Check tomorrow for pics of the stock bumper.

Right below the oil filter is the pressure sensor and you put in an included t-fitting. From there, they provide a 1/4 in. stainless steel line that routes along the center of the car (with the wastegate hose) and the after you get over the rear, the stainless goes to the top of the turbo on the passenger side (wastegate on driver side). The return hose goes from the bottom of the turbo unit and up along the passeger side (like the intake piping) which is then hooked-up to the STS oil pump which is mounted in the passenger front wheel well (I think I included a picture). You then attach a line from the pump back to the motor and the oil is returned via a modified oil fill cover (you should be able to see this in one of the pictures I posted).

Looks like your daughter is going to get one heck of a car!

Yeah, might have to rethink that one. Depends how good the Z28 is. Might just stay with the v6. Lol

Here you go. I really think the Unrestricted Motorsports front will work with this set-up. And please don't mind the dirty car, been in the garage for a while.

Unless your changing out the front bumper soon I would get rid of the front plate holder you will get more air flow to the intercooler

Thank you so much Z. I'm just waiting on the dyno report and some videos from you and I'll be placing my order!

We've heard so many broken promises and hype over the last year, and I can't tell you how extremely happy I am to see that you had the courage to take a chance on this install. You've returned a lot of hope to the rest of us. Thank you again!

P.S. I grew up in Hawaii, on the island of Maui to be exact. I lived in Lahaina and then Kahului (near the airport). Aloha and Mahalo.

I strongly recommend you do some research on the STS turbos for performance and reliability or any other product of major investment. Just my $.02.

Wouldn't that be better advice before he paid for it and installed it?
