I am looking into doing twin turbos on mine. What would the difference be with your single turbo kit? I see you are in Florida so you are only 4 hours away from me. Thats a great price installed for the first three kits. How many have you sold so far?

It sounds like you've built a pretty efficient intercooler setup there then if you got IAT's that low! Nice Job!

What was ambient outside temperature (in the dyno room or near the dyno) when you had it on the rollers? What type of dyno do you use?

Why do you want twins? I know that on the Corvette's, they use twins because it's easier to package the turbo's because of space. From the looks of the dyno sheet, unless you're going for 1000+ rwhp, this setup would ROCK on the street!

I thought that they said they sold one kit installed already, but might be mistaken!

If I had a New Camaro and wasn't worried about warranty, I'd buy this kit in a second........Especially if it had free installation by the company that built it! You can't beat that deal with a BIG stick! 600 rwhp would be ALOT of fun!

Thanks! We have some more updated info and dyno video coming today. I actually got to drive the car around for the past day and it is FAST!!!! Yes 109F at redline, the efficiency is unreal of the setup. Ambient was around 90-95 in the shop.


We made a new 636 HP and 660 TQ !!!!! ( 530whp and 550 wtq ) on 8.5 psi. For the low cost on this kit and the amount of instant power, you really cant beat it.

More to come later.

wow guys.. i don't know how I didn't see this thread before. Killer #s on the kit. Makes me want to have $7k available to put this bad boy in there. The installation even looks like it could have been from factory. You can tell that you have a lot of experience with Turbos. Are you guys thinking of taking the car to SEMA?

Oh yes, you can at least add 3% to the numbers for the LS3. We are editing the video as we speak and will have it up by the end of the day. The car just sounds amazing!



More to come soon. Thanks guys!

Actually first thing in the morning we will have a new thread up in the vendor classified with full details, a complete list of parts, dyno sheets, dyno graphs, video on the street, video on the dyno and some other treats for everyone.

I will link this thread to it when I get it up.

Many people have been bolting up single turbo kits to the stock manifolds for a while now and really are making serious power this way. We will be doing some more research on this when we do the upgrade turbo to see if it helps.

This helps to keep the overall cost of the kit down. The kit so far has been making well over 25 horsepower to the wheels per pound which is incredible so I cant imagine a lot to gain at these power levels with aftermarket headers.

Thats ZR1 territory!!!!!!!!!!! I'm liking the sound of a turbo setup a lot more now than a s/c(If I had a Camaro and wanted to race it). No need for a LS7 swap either. Just maybe some forged internals after a few drag strip passes LOL

Haha, we debated it but decided to go with it this way. Figured there was a lot of turbo sound on it. Such a fun car to drive. Let me know if anyone has any questions.
