z, thanks for the dyno runs and videos.
So far so good; that power output is good considering the psi its running at (roughly 18-20hp per psi?!). Sounds like the key component is what kind of psi can the v6 boost to before running too lean. Is Trifecta making any comments on where boost could be upped to safely on the stock set up? And yes a boost controller is a must.

I would suggest a single stage manual - simple yet effective because it takes alot of variables out of the equation in the event something goes wrong. Also, if the wastegate is adjustable, then you can adjust the wastegate to its 'factory' setting, then adjust your boost controller to the desired psi. All of this will need to be done with an acurate boost gauge of course - thats too bad the autometer isnt working right - I wonder if maybe it just isnt hooked up right. But the gauge will be important to monitor while going through trials with the boost gauge on the street.

I guess I would just see what Trifecta thinks you can safely run boost up to, then get the boost controller and boost gauge working right, do some driving around to get it dialed in, and then maybe back to the dyno to see how everything is sync'ing up.

Just a note on your Dyno numbers. It is known that a Dynapack reads 8-10% lower than a Dynojet does.

Straight from STS. I suck at reading these things but it looks to be about 400RWHP? Looks like im about to be out 6k.

Thank you Z for getting your car on the dyno and sharing your video and report. I have just a few questions. Is this rough curve something that is typical with a turbo or is this an indicator of some remaining tuning issues?

The car sounds great by the way!

Not sure, I sent them an email waiting to discuss with them further details but from what they told me so far it's 400RWHP and just a little over 500 at the crank. Looks like a pretty sweet deal. Z do you have any warranty info? Does it void the cars engine warranty completely? Or do they have to directly relate it to the turbo system?

I'll try to hit all the answers.

The AACS car supposedly ran on 6 psi. of boost.

I have been in discussions with STS and Trifecta regarding the DYNO run and both agree that there is room for improvement. I am working with Vince on more data-logging since it appears there are some issues at the higher RPM's (5000+). STS is working on my EBC and Meth Injection and we are trying to determine what's going on this the wastegate as the boost seems a little low. I am sure we will get this system much higher but I think the best way to look at this is it does work on a very safe level. 100+ rwhp gets us slightly above a stock L99 from some of the actual numbers I've seen. And yes, the Dyno that I used is generally lower that the DynoJets. Best estimate by Dyno guys was that I would have run about 380 rwhp on a Dynojet at the same time (just estimates of course).

So, car is fine as is and can be run all day and should not present any issues as it is currently set-up. Of course, I will continue to try for more but I would say that you can safely buy the kit and get it running with some great results.

As far as warranty from GM, I have absolutely no idea about it but was impressed that you don't have to change much to get the STS kit installed. I haven't taken her in to get any service (1,100 miles so far) but when I do, I'll let everyone know what they say.

Lastly, as I don't have access to a drag strip I'll plan to get a Dashhawk for some 0-60 mph times. I went for a short cruise with a bunch of 2010's yesterday and was pleased to hear one of the V-8 guys comment that my car had some pull on the freeway (not that we were racing or anything.....).
