Thanks but I'm not driving of course! lol at least the driver took this video late with very little public around.
In theory, twin scrolls are designed to give quick spool characteristics without sacrificing top end power. twin scroll turbos use a divided turbine housing with two exhaust turbines to allow air to flow to a smaller turbine and larger turbine. The smaller turbine creates quick spool at lower rpms and then as rpms increase the larger turbine will keep the air flowing. I think thats how they work. I know for sure they work best with a quick spool valve or divided exhaust manifold.

IF anyone knows how to embed videos from imageshack please let me know!

Thanks, I have a single right now. I would've have given up on the twins if I had all of the knowledge that I have now but I'm happy with my single. It cost about 3600 for all parts and tune and I installed myself so no cost there. However I spent about another $1k from trouble shooting and trail and error from my inexperience. Thats why I put together that list so there would be less trail and error for others.

Lol thanks, but unfortunately thats not the BOV, I've got some compressor surge because my BOV is so small. The DSM valve sounds more like a high pitch sneeze. In the car when I let off you hear the bov sneeze and then the laugh/bark/turkey gobble sound right after which is very loud outside the car. My old turbo really sounded like someone was laughing so when I pull pass someone in a race, I would let off momentarily right as I pass to make it sound like my car is laughing at them lol. Im kinda mean and childish at the same time lol

The $5000+ remote kit is for the STS kit. My remote kit cost $3600 because that was the total price for buying each part individually and piecing it together.

No dyno yet, will have it dynoed soon after I add a few more things. I know stock my car made 244hp and 230tq on a dj 224x. I will be taking it to the same shop so I'll be able to post dyno results with stock and turboed on the same chart.

Can I buy the parts and take it to the shop to have it installed or is the sts more cost efficient?

You can do that but I would say if you have the $5000+ to buy a turbo kit, buy it. Any issues with any of the parts would be handled by sts or rx or whoever you buy from. Building yourself you'll have to deal with each manufacturer individually if a problem arises. The only reason why I didn't buy one of the professionally made kits was because I did not have that large sum of money to drop at once. By building the kit myself, I was able to spread out the cost over a couple of months (every pay period I bought about $300 worth of parts on average). I also thought it would be a great learning experience. Now every other car I see, I look to see if I can fit a turbo in it lol! However, if any of the companies had financing options I would've just financed a kit.

I'm in the same position now, deciding if I want to buy part by part or find some financing options

It would be nice if somebody can offer a very low interest turbo financing. Its very hard for anybody these days in this economy to just drop 7-8 grand for a turbo kit unless you just have $$$ to throw. If I had the option to throw 7-8 grand, I think I would choose another route. Maybe a trade in. I could just put a whole build on my credit card but paying the interest back on that would be scary.

Totally agree. If there was low interest financing I wouldn't mind paying an extra 2-300 a month for 1-2 years for a turbo kit with a warranty during that period. As long as the total monthly payments plus insurance is less than buying an SS and the value of losing chevy's warranty, why not. Of course, we could always just save up those hypothetical payments and buy a kit with cash two years later but by that time that money saved could be a down payment for the 2014 alpha platform camaro!

Piecing together part by part is a lot of fun and a great learning experience if you've never done it before. And when your finished, you'll know every part of the system, and you can be proud of your own custom creation. Most people ask where I bought my turbo kit from and when I say that I built it from scratch in my driveway they hardly believe me. When they finally do believe me they ask if I can build a kit for them! Just makes the whole experience feel even better lol.

I know, when a started piecing parts together for my few mods, I did it myself just to get the feeling.

In early October, I will try to update dyno, 1/4 mile, and 0-60 when my remaining mods are installed and properly tuned. When I am able to build boost without spinning and leaving the line, the 0-60 is in mid-low 4's or barely breaking into to the 3's. Thats why I will be installing a mod that will allow me to do this easier!
