Granatelli Twin Turbo and Cam build

For shits and giggles I'm gonna start this build thread WITH PICS and some video later... for anybody curious about what the hell is happening. Car went in Sun. July 29 to Granatelli Motorsports in Oxnard, CA. What's on the to do list:








LS3 Conversion and Twin Turbos:
  • Lifters
  • Push rods
  • Springs
  • Comp Cam
  • Aeromotive A1000 fuel pump
  • Twin Precision 6365 BB Turbos
  • Granatelli turbo kit and tune
  • Granatelli plug wires
...and while the bumper is off...
  • Oracle color shift halos and fog light kit
See following pics and video. I'll be adding as progress allows.

Update 8/7/2012

A couple day set back dealing with the new fuel system. Here you see the entire rear clip detached. This is to run the Aeromotive A1000 fuel pump with the required custom return line. A fuel regulator is also going in (pics on that soon)

I'll post some "before turbos" video on the cam sound (no tune).
TT install starts tomorrow.
