HPS 2012 LFX TT BUILD!!!-PICS

Ok guys, this is a badazz project HPS has going on here. This will definatly be a LFX to be recond with. I had a customer contact me from California about building him a turbo kit for his 2012 LFX V6 Camaro. After a few conversations, we decided upon a setup and the customer shipped his car to us all the way from California! HPS has mounted the turbo's on the bottom on each side of the tansmission bellhousing. Also being from California HPS is retaining all the factory catlytic converters as well.
Customer vehicle is scheduled to be picked up February 1st.!
I will post more pics later next week.

The build:

Swapped out his V6 Rear end assy for a SS Camaro V8 assy.
Rearend has all BMR Suspension Products and Bushings.
TWIN PRECISION TURBO'S!!!!
Turbonetics 38mm wastegates(2)
Autometer AFR Gauge
Autometer Boost Gauge
Converting nitrous kit to a intercooler spray bar setup!
Professionally Fabricated in House and Installation
Professionally Tuned by Chris@ HPS

Chris, if you've been paying any attention at all to Gretchens thread about his TT LFX, then you should know this is exciting stuff! I'd love to see you guys work together on any improvements or ideas.

Will be watching!

Thanks Guys,

The car is 99% complete and will be driving it and tuning it for the turbo's this weekend. With just the rear end swap to the ss assembly, really woke up the car alone! With these precision turbo's, this V6 is gooing to scream!

The two LLT builds they did were in the low 400 RWHP upper 300 RWTQ range. I would expect at least 50 more on the LFX.
