Big, big difference. I just slapped a kit on my car. Took a Saturday and a Sunday. These two have been at it for a "bit" longer than that.

BUT, you also can't just overdrive the S/C and get much (if any) better numbers. The set-up as it is just doesn't work like that. That's where I was heading.

Gretchen has gone into the R&D side of these (with Aaron of course) way beyond many. Forged pistons, etc.

And now for a sneak peak into one of the latest mods for these turbo cars:




And all controlled and monitored as far as blade position, angle, rate of flow, etc.

This allows the boost to build even quicker and this car has a 50shot of nitrous that is on a boost referenced controller to come on at 1500 rpm and off at 3000 to further spool up instantly.
This is a 2010 LLT...I think the qucikest LLT in the world right now (FI)
Of course the same EFR turbos we are using as the top end option and that Gretchen has on his new LFX .
Will be releasing more info shortly as far as price, lead time, etc.

Up until now I have had people tell me that the C5 looks like an exotic space ship from the outside. Looking at those gauges I guess the same can be applied for the inside.

Sorry thought Grechen was an RX build, anyways with the tunability of the LFX we should be hitting higher levels of boost.

The original Gretchen was....she is gone and Dereks new car is an LFX and I think they only reused the intercooler, BOV, wastegates and turbos for the most part. All was fabbed by Dereks team and they did awesome....and are not finished yet!!! (he needs more power).
