I'm lucky because our tracks don't close down unless its a rainy day. I'll have new times next weekend.

Well it's hard to compare from the six speed to an auto.That Maggie time was impressive..it would have been great to compare if u still had the stick I bet the et wouldn't be much different

I converted my SS to auto because I lost my left leg when a truck hit me on my streetbike, it made 686 rwhp on ADM's dyno, my ZL1 makes 850 rwhp on 91 octane on the same dyno. The turbos get way better gas mileage & make way more power, the Maggie had a harder hit off idle but the turbos catch up fast & pull harder for much longer. If you price out this AGP kit its way cheaper than my Maggie was, I had the LPE 14 rib rear setup, 8 rib front setup, larger heat exchanger, smaller front pulley for more boost, ported the blower to match the LPE heads, ADM cold air intake & a super tensioner. Add in on top of all that ARH long tube headers & the blower is way more than this kit & it doesn't make the same power, its also maxed out. Want more power with the turbo kit & you just buy bigger turbos for not much money, sell your old ones & its barely any money at all. I'd recommend this kit to anyone because of price, power & drivability. AGP has awesome customer service also, I called them with a few questions & they answered all of them without me feeling like they wanted off the phone, Kevin the owner of AGP sent me a pm with his personal number & offered his help if I ever needed it, offered to spec me a converter, gave me tips on drag racing/launching a turbo car because this is my first one, very cool guy & company! All my cars will be turbo from this point forward, I'll never go back to belt slip or needing to buy additional mods that add up to the price of the blower to get the potential out of the blower unit itself.

I just bought this thing and im already thinking twin ball bearing turbos 4 core intercooler etc etc. Oh wait i just watches the fast and furious. Oh well. Still looking into it also. We will tap out this maggie and move on to better things. This thing pulls hard but falls off up top unlike turbo power.

Well im sorry for your accident ,thats why I sold the wife and my bike,idot drivers are every where..And no offence but you did have a ton of extras on your Maggie build for such a small return. I currently make over 800rwhp with my Maggie on pump gas with nothing other than an 8 rib and a good combo. Like everyone I guess you get hung up on this big number and you sure wont see that with the Maggie or whipple so its got me looking hard at this kit. I would like 1000rwhp and my Maggie aint gona do that.What I don't wont is a 1000rwhp dyno sheet and run a slower ET than my Maggie does. So far I have yet to see these big HP turbo cars ET.

No offense taken at all, don't get me wrong I loved my Maggie car, it was/is a badass bitch! If your building from scratch this turbo kit is hard to beat for the money. I'll have times for you very soon. As far as turbo cars running fast times, last time I checked Darth Emmas car had twins & is running down in the 8.40's & is the fastest 5th gen. ADM built SS Magnas twin turbo 5th gen & he runs 9.50's or better.

Actually we have the record back with the ARH/Farks car but im not talking a 1 off auto drag car,i mean something you would take out of the box like a Maggie.I also im looking for stick times .

My car is a manual and I don't have any plans for an auto conversion until the tr6060 breaks or it needs a new clutch. Regardless, I am only after a 9 sec et and not after records. Just an overpowered street car is what it ultimately is.

Call Kevin, he should know. Tranny lines are for the cooler to plug in OEM style so if you are doing your own cooler/etc then you may not need them.

I don't see why it wouldn't work with a 4l80 but Kevin should know. It would work with certain th400/350/etc the issue Matt had was the transbrake solenoid was hitting the wastegate. That could be modded fairly easy to fit or if you don't have a transbrake it may not be an issue at all.

I have been told by Kevin last week there is not a solution yet, but he has ideas in the works. My assumption is that he needs a 4L80 car there so he can put something together.

As per my TH400, with the deep pan and the transbrake the cast wastegate extensions were the issue, so that could have been worked around with putting the gates off of the manifolds or further down the line.
