I'm a drag racer at heart so I'm curious how fast is this setup? I feel they should be in the lower mid 11:xx ETs with good suspension and tires. I'll have to see what my new setup does for me this fall and may have to try twins instead of my current nitrous setup. Hoping the new setup will put me into the 11:xx ( probably upper 80s /90s I figure ) ETs this fall, only time will tell. Keep up the great work I'd love to see more low 12 high 11 ETs LFX out here.

Should improve MPG while cruising. I plan to get this kit and my Camaro is DD. I'm saving up and upgrading a few other parts in the meantime, might pull the trigger next summer.

This is amazing in what this set up does for the car. GRRR >_<
I want to get into FI but I need to save up for it. Well time can be my enemy or my friend in this. All I can do is wait and see what happens while I save up my nickels and dimes.

If this kit is not easily affordable for you, it is not for you. In the long run it will not only cost you the initial investment of the kit + install labor, it will also cost you powertrain warranty and eventually things start to break faster because of the extra power. Expect to be replacing things like axles, wheel bearings, clutch, etc... much sooner than you would expect on your current power level and none of it will be covered.
I'm not trying to discourage anyone but when people start talking about how they have to save up just to buy the parts, remember that does not include install + future parts + future labor installs.
Most people don't take this into account. I know someone with a supercharged SRT8 Jeep Grand Cherokee and all he does is complain about everything breaking, his is a daily driver and he does not ever go to the track so his power is really just wasted on wasting more money and time, making the vehicle less and less reliable.

Would one turbo be more reliable than two?
