V6 STS Turbo Install

Check out this V6 Camaro getting the STS Turbo treatment!

STS Turbo has designed a very cool turbo kit for the V6 Camaro. This kit uses an STS turbo running at approximately 6 psi of boost. It includes all the necessary hardware and accessories for a great fit and finish. Jim's Camaro retains the stock driving characteristics until he mashes the gas and the turbo spools up making an additional 120hp to the rear wheels. That is extremely impressive considering that the car came factory with 300hp. We also installed a single Auto Meter boost gauge with a single pillar pod along with a Turbonetics T4 turbo blanket to keep the turbo spooled with heat and protect the components around it.

Customer's impressions"The turbo spools up very quickly and is awesome on the highway when I mash the gas, the car is so much fun to drive".

MTI Racing and STS Turbo put together a great combination. Please call or visit us at (770)919-7774 www.mtiracing.com

hmm what were the final dyno numbers? everyone seems to be getting around the same as the SS for wheel horse, I thought STS was saying 400 + but i guess its because of tuning problems right now getting it to go past 5 psi.

Did you guys change the spring or use a boost controller to get the 6 psi? Also, no A/F gauge?

I thought people were only seeing 5 did you really achieve 6?

The 5 is because of the 5spi spring in the wastegate. You can up the spring if you like. 5psi is reached rather quickly.

Z Madness...or anyone who knows about turbos. Is it the tune or the size of the wastegate spring that effects how much psi you can boost to? If it is the spring is it simply replacing the spring to get more boost or do you have to buy a boost controller?

You can use the springs alone or with a boost controller. Using a stiffer spring ups the boost.

Gretchen,

Thanks for the info. I think I will keep the boost at 5 PSI for the moment until more testing is done so I don't have to change out rods, pistons, valve springs or tranny from stock. I'd rather err on the side of safety when working with stock tolerances/capabilities.

Any chance we can see a dyno graph before and after?

Looks Real Good guys.

That is why I feel safe keeping the psi at 5 rather than increasing the boost. As of right now there are very few upgraded aftermarket parts (rods, pistons, tranny etc.) and I don't want to surpass the tolerances/capability of the stock components. I just think more testing needs to be done to be able to increase boost (beyond 5-6 psi) to a level that the stock components can effectively handle without breaking. At some point in time if you keep adding in power (FI) you will eventually have to start upgrading to parts that can handle the total power output.

I've got a before, but it will be on a different dyno and location. I'll try to get another before we start, but mine is going to be a quick turn around. I can't remember if Z posted a dyno before the turbos on his (thinks are a little harder to get on the islands :(, so it's been a lot harder for him.).

I think we can get rods, but they may not be too big a problem. Definitely want to replace the bolts. Pistons are a totally different matter. These things are funky to deal with the DI, so it will take a custom set. I'm saving for that now. As for the tranny, I'm considering complete replacement but I'm not sure how that will work with these new type controllers. That's going to take a bit of research. There's a guy locally that says we could rebuild it ourselves, but I think he's assuming there are parts available.

Anyways, I starting at 5-6 psi, too. I'll do lots of logging as I work my way up to 8-9. I think she can handle it, but probably not much more. I'll working on some stuff to lower the compression a bit, but that's going to take a while (and money) to do it right. Some may be possible with custom pistons, but probably not enough without decreasing effeciency of the DI setup. Biggest think will the to tear it apart at some point and see what it really looks like in there.

one thing's for, i would really be nervous with the turbo being that low to the ground. i would be cringing at every single puddle no matter the depth.
