Car was picked up and drove home 600 miles last week. I dont have any other pics except whats in my avatar at the moment but there is a bunch of pics as the process was happening on RDP's facebook page along with a lot of other amazing builds.

I am already enjoying the boost !!

How much heat is there under the hood after a typical drive? I am interested in putting one of these kits on my car but am concerned about that.

They heat wrapped everything near the turbo or pipes but I will say there is for sure some heat under the hood. After driving around cruising and a few full throttle runs within 20-30 minutes I stopped and you could feel the hood and front facia area was definatly warm to somewhat hot. I dont think its going to be an issue and never touched that area after driving before but I assume its hotter know.

We've extensively tested the Camaro with Turbonetics turbo system on a race track with GM engineers. Of course, this is in addition to countless hours on the street (ahem, closed street) and on the dyno.

You will not have an issue on the street or on your favorite road course.... at least not anymore than a stock setup. As with any cars on a race track, make sure it's prepped properly and keep your eyes on the coolant and oil temperatures.

Anything else you have experienced since the install that is worth mentioning?
Did you get a custom dyno tune with your install or just use the included programmer? What were the HP numbers?
Also, did you have any other upgrades done or just install the standard kit?
I want to put one of these systems on my car to run on Hot Rod Drag Week next year.

We still have a couple transmission issues to deal with on tuning as it was raining the days before I got the car. Mostly it lugs in upper gears when normal driving.
Power is great if your foot is in it and I can also manually shift it.
We used hp tuners software and on 6lbs of boost running 520rwhp.
RDP exhaust, snow meth kit,2800 edge convertor, catchcan, didnt use airbox installed a cone filter instead, extra heat wrap on everything near the turbo or pipes, 1400hp axles, hotchkis track pack suspension kit, boost and aeroforce gauges with twin pod and then I ran out of money !! LOL
I really think once the transmission is finalized the car will be an amazing street car with plenty of power that I can drive any where. Even at 6lbs of boost with traction control on, the car wants to go anywhere but straight.

Thanks for the info.
Did you find that you needed the meth kit to run 6 lbs of boost?
What was the catch can used for? (I see you have the Tnetics washer/radiator overflow reservoirs in place).
For starters, I would prefer to just use the Diablo tuner they give you with the kit. anyone here use that with good results?

dont need the water meth kit for 6lbs and we can certainly do the diablosport predator as well as we are a cmr tuner

There isn't anything wrong with the stock diablo tune. However, it is very conservative and rich, so a custom dyno tune would definitely maximize the power received from the kit.

That's what I was thinking . I still need 50 state legal because I'm in Cali, but I had my car dyno tuned. Hopefully it will still pass. The tune is still a little conservative but much less so than the stock diablo tune. If we use an aftermarket cone filter with the kit instead of the stock air filter, is that not carb legal? I'm assuming I'll just have to swap the stock one on when I get a smog check?
