How much is the STS single turbo?

I cant seem to find out how much the STS Single Turbo cost. I found the universal Turbo on their site for 2k but will that work on the Camaro?

Just give them a call. Base kit is $5,995 but there are other variables. They can help you put together a final kit. Good luck!

It doesn't include all the piping you would need. The 6k kit comes with the piping custom fit to the camaro.

Jim, do you have torque numbers on your STS? I can't seem to find the tq, but I've seen hp from 350-380 at the wheels.

The $8400 for Jim included professional installation. I think he also upgraded the turbo.

I received a quote of $7000 including the basic kit, an O2 sensor, a boost gauge, and a dual gauage A-pillar. It include all taxes and installation. It did not include a dino tune, only the tune that was included with the kit. What do you guys think of installing this kit with just the include tune?

Put it this way.. by car spent 4 days on the dyno to get it right. That tune that comes with the kit need to be fine tuned.

I don't think anyone is ripping him. I know Jim got upgraded turbos, and I am sure it didn't spend 4 days straight on the dyno. Most of that time was most likely used analyzing results.

I was just curious how the included kit tune is. What I am thinking is that I could just put in the kit tune, and do a trifecta tune later. I am having trouble finding someone in the Chicago Area that will do a dyno tune on a V6.
