We switched back to the stock exhaust manifolds, and used JBA cat-delete pipes. You could use their shorty headers and be legal in California, but you would need to have the stock cats on the car.

with most cams you need new valve springs, i assume this would also be the case here. what else would you need to do to make sure its durable? is it a single bolt?

Yes, you will definitely need new valve springs with a camshaft upgrade.

Cam, springs, and install kit (3 bolt cam sprocket + chain damper)

Would 3 inch pipe after the turbo hurt you any?

It would definitely help. We will be taking the resonators and mufflers off soon, and going with straight pipes to see how it sounds. Right now it has way too much 'rasp' around 2k rpms when cruising around town.

Would this kit "bolt" up to the Stainless Works Retro 3" exhaust?

I'm guessing from the install pics you would have to cut at least some of the SW exhaust out.

What about using Solo High Flow cats to cut down on the rasp?

I understand that the kit is set under 8PSI.. so its at 7PSI.... How much PSI can u increase the boost to so that gives more HP but is still safe ?

How much power are you wanting to make?

We are running about 10psi, cat delete pipes, and a mild cam, as it sits now the car is making about 625hp to the wheels . There is also a LPE fuel system, and the tune has been checked multiple times to make sure everything is OK.

I seen the video at YouTube that shows the stock LS3 engine on a dyno with 360 rwhp after the turbonetics kit I believe it showed 560 rwhp .... I'll be happy with about 580 rwhp so what is safe boost to use ? My car will be bone stock except for the turbo kit I will add..

Plus I live in California and the reason I'm getting the turbonetics out is cause is 50 state legal... When can owners of the kit get proof that is CARB legal for 2012 and 2013 models ?

I would strongly recommend a boost a pump or a larger fuel pump, a aem boost gauge( its programmable too) set it at 7lbs and with a good conservative custom tune you should make over 550rwhp for sure!!!

Do you guys offer a complete kit with all the parts needed. Specially with that same cam? I have same set up T76 Tnetics kit currently running 5.8 stock tune. My plan is to do 8PSi and retune with new cam and valve springs
