First it's not all inheritance money. Since I graduated when I was 17 I have been making $18k a year, (2 years), and this year I will be making even more seeing I get an annual raise of a few bucks. This job is something I could do my whole life and be very very wealthy like my boss. My inheritance money is for me to be in school which it's being used for, my camaro is paid off already and I've only had it 2 years, so really I just want to keep adding to my car, cosmetics are done, and most bolt ons are done, except internals, FI, and major suspension upgrades.

I will most deffinately keep adding HP, cams, heads, the new stroker forged kit Tracy previously mentioned, and by next winter I plan to have twin turbos installed. As I may never reach these crazy goals I will get as much as I can and I will continue to hope that others are as interested and excited as I am for our LLTs and that company's will continue to take cracks at the Bosch ecu and handle the tuning issue.

And as I had mentioned about my work, and being so young, money-wise, I don't have any obligations with money as our home is paid off, car is paid off, and school is paid for. I'm saving money on top of my whole car build, by no means will I make myself poor because I want to go faster , just a hobby. And no I will not take the easy way out and trade up to an SS. I easily could have and still could. But I personally find more fun an enjoyment in modding the first car that I've bought, and would absolutely love to have reached my goals and could give ZL1's a good run for the money . And also nothing is cooler than turbos and the huge blowoff valves

Everybody, THANK YOU, for all this great information. Keep it comin!!

Here's what I would personally do. Considering you say you have quite a bit of money and a good amount of money constantly coming in, I would build this car but do it conservatively. Then I would take what you have left and what your still getting and go out and get a v8 and go crazy with that one. That's personally what I'm doing. I would love to mod the crap out of this car but I'm not going to destroy it in the process either just because I want big numbers. Since the tuning hasn't been dialed in 100% yet, I will probably go with the IPF kit since their tuning seems to be dialed in better than any other out there and keep it conservative. Get suspension as well and keep it at that. If the tuning ever resolves itself, then I would look into a twin kit (this would be my number one choice if not for the tuning). Until then, I go buy a v8 and go crazy with the numbers. Yes it's easy to build a high hp v8 but that's not the hard part, the hard part is getting the power down to the ground. You could have the most hp in the world but if all you're doing is spinning, it's not going to do you any good. A good example of this is member SuperchargedSS's car. His car is a janetty built car that puts down about mid 600 hp but he holds the record for the fastest v8 on stock displacement. Why? Because that build is made to work well together. It was well thought out and put together perfectly. There are a ton of member making way more hp but they still can't run the numbers that they "should" be running. That's what I find fun. Finding the "formula" for a car that performs as it should with the power it's making.
Just my thoughts, take it for what it's worth.

Perhaps you need to go back and re-read this thread. Please look and see that I posted up a very long response to Ryans goals before you ever chimed in on this thread, about certain aspects of this project he REALLY needs to research in depth before throwing his money away.

Its just the way you are stating certain things, and making assumptions that may not be accurate is what I was referring to. Anyways, moving on.

Don't see how your getting these large numbers to produce 600rwhp. Gretchen will stand as my example as he hasn't dumped that much in the LFX to get it to 550rwhp. I spent $7k to make the power I have. Some have more power than me like CJT037 with the STS kit which cost $6k. Tuning is the key and time consuming part. You get you a good tune a some extra fuel and your golden. Also a twin turbo kit isn't needed to get the power. The extra turbo just helps spool things quicker. So that's about $1500 saved that can go into the fuel system. Like I said before, we don't know what the pistons can handle yet. But we all know that the HPFP is the weak link right now. Tuning just takes time as some have perfect tunes and I'm getting there again as I made some changes.

Well said. Waiting to get my LFX down to RX to get boosted.
