Hey Jeff. Do you think it'd be possible to use this kit to make a twin-charged setup on a zl1? Got to ride in a friends twin-charged hellion Cobra and it was amazing. Wondered if it was feasible or not. Thanks!

I want anyone concearned about these kits for Daily Driving to stop worrying!

My wife put over 10k miles on our last Camaro with the higher end kit and she has never been down a track EVER!

When I was teaching my daughter how to drive, she drove the car with no issues and I would feel comfortable driving the car across country.

I never had an overheating issue, I always ran the AC, I didn't have ANY drivability issues and until I stepped on the gas you couldn't hardly tell it was there (that was by design for my wife)

This kit is the reason I bought a Camaro... when I was watching them do the R&D on the first one of these kits I told them "you guys are going to make me buy a Camaro" and sure enough I did, and I put the kit on.

Entry level or high end version these kits are better than you can imagine and the quality and reliablity are amazing!

If you are on the fence, call the shop and schedule a ride along with me in mine (when the weather gets better) you won't be sorry!

Not quite done yet but here is where it is at thus far. I couldn't find Mark's "Best" graph from before but at 8psi is here a comparison:

Red: Entry-level Kit
Blue: GT3586



EDIT: Once she is 100% done I will do a few over-lays of various Supercharger Kits and SC + Cam set-ups etc etc.

If it doesn't quite equal the number (Of our GT35R-based Kit) it will get very close once boost is the same and tuning is done. Then we are going to add a cat-back just to see how much the stocker is hurting power.

Auto's make quite a bit less so the 6-speed car we do next will jump that number up quite a bit (Should be up 50ish at the wheels).

Jeff--If you have the entry level kit and wanted more power, how hard would it be to upgrade to the ball bearing/billet Garrett turbos? Would it be as easy as changing the turbos and downpipes out or would there be more to change or fabricate? Also would a boost controller help spool the turbos up faster? Thanks.

On another note, is the T3 the only option? Could the downpipe be 3" on the T3? Asking because I have a 3" exhaust.

This kit is T3-flanged and 2.5" off the turbo but will still work fine for those having any a/m 3" cat-back systems. Our other kit offers V-band and 3" downpipes by comparison. The power ceiling will be lower for sure but as long as testing continues to go well that ceiling is looking like it will still be plenty high for 95% of FI buyers right now (SC or TT).

If I would have seen this a few months ago before I started building mine I would have considered this. Looks good. Maybe I missed it but what size are the base turbos?

Does this kit come with any tuning?

maybe I missed it somewhere but does this kit come with any canned tuning? It would be for a short while but my tuner is 180 miles away and it would be nice to have a nice fat tune to keep everything together on a three hour drive. Thanks.

Just for testing, we wanted to see what a Cat-back would add (And also what the stock Auto exhaust was robbing since it is VERY restrictive) so here are the numbers with the cat-back removed:



Here is the over-lay with and without the stock exhaust:

I'm more impressed by how much the slope of the graph increased

Me too -- without that restriction the power ramps up much sharper for sure.

Moral of the story: It is well-worth the money to spring for a 3" cat-back if you have a 600whp FI car

Power numbers look great! I can't wait to see what the M6 car does. You guys are going to make me swap my single turbo for twins!

Sorry about that. We have done very little in the past (Supplying tunes with our kits) but we can make a "Base" tune available with kits for sure. I am a HUGE proponent of having the car tuned by a reputable shop as opposed to a "Mail-order" type of tune but for instances like you described I understand the need.

Awesome numbers Jeff!! Not sure if you missed this question that I asked before, but can you upgrade the turbos in the future to the billet/HTA Garrett turbos without much problem or fabrication? Could you just swap the turbos, upsize the downpipe, tune it and be done? Also, have you done any kits with the NPP exhaust? I have that exhaust on my '13 and wondered how restrictive it is. Thanks and great job!
