How much are we talking for twin turbos, plus installation? And where can installers be found? Sorry, forgot to mention for a 2013 2ss. Is there any difference installing on a 2010 to a 2014?

The good twin turbo kits range from 6500-8000 depending on what options you want. Then the installation and tuning i would guess is between 1500-2500. Its a pretty involved install

$6500-10k depending on options but that is very complete and if you compare it to a blower it is a bargain for the power you get. Install is straight forward, no cutting/drilling or any thing hard, just a lot of parts to put on but they all just bolt right now. Very easy to do yourself IMO or a shop should quote 8-10 hours for the 1st one.

Only difference between a 2010 and 2014 is the oil pump mounting spot because of the electric power steering. Any LS shop should be able to install one.

I can help price out the agp kit to make it easier to think what you would need
Im having jannetty racing do a remote tune for me so i can do the install myself and not have to worry about getting my car to a tuner shop
6700 for base tuner kit
400 for msd boost a pump
600 for ls9 injectors
400 for jannetty tune
So its about 8100 total and you should be good for about 600-700 hp range anything more than that you would need to upgrade the fuel pump and injectors

$7500 full AGP kit comes with BAP and 850CC injectors, and a base tune. Paying $1000 for injectors/BAP especially with ls9 injectors seems a bit much. The injectors they ship are good for ~900rwhp.

Depends on how you look at it i guess because the included tune is just a base tune and most likely your going to end up getting a better tune anyway so im starting off with that from the begining.

Please bare in kind that the twins are only the tip of the iceberg, unless of course someone is wanting to replace broken parts and have a tire spinning champ...

Keep in mind there will be frustration seeing cars with a lot less potential running off and leaving... Driveline changes, suspension changes etc... There is a ton of power to be had but if it goes up in smoke where is the benefit... Sure it's fun... But....

As for the rest of the budget numbers mentioned.. Always allow for more than the estimate... A simple bolt on kit is one thing... But it seems there are always add ons...

As for installers in your area, determine the kit you want... IPS, AGP, Hellion etc... Then speak to them and get a recommendation for your area of one of their approved installers...

As for differences, structurally no there isn't... And for the most part there isn't in the tuning either... We found a difference deep in the computers for traction control... But it won't effect what your asking...

At minimum - add aftermarket trailing arms and toe rods to eliminate the dreaded wheel hop.

Talked to a reputable shop today for a quote on the AGP
kit install. It would be the first in Alberta and the shops first time with the kit.

They said 16-20 hours @ $145 an hour. I emailed Kevin to see what a realistic install time would be including gauges and meth kit.

Canada sucks for reasonable speed shops. Not much for competition.
Hopefully I get a more reasonable install time.

OP there are a lot of vette guys that run the UPP kit, but it is not popular here. Matter of fact I don't even know anyone running it. I've been running IPS for 3 years without issue and many run it. The AGP kit is new, looks good, and is popular. Granatelli/TTI was another but I believe something happened with them and they separated. So just TTI I believe now. The only other kit worth mentioning is Hellion. Those are the choices I would personally look at.

I have a M6 SS 1LE with BMR Trailing arms and ZL1 Toe rods. Even just with LTs I can get plenty of wheel hop. With solid cradle and differential bushings you can make it just about go away. And I hear alignment tweaking can help too.

Yes,in Alberta.The cost of living is pretty high.
Here in my area, labour rate is around 60-100$ an hour.
Actually were 62$ here.
We have an AGP turbo kit here ready to be installed aswell.

16-20 hours would be a lot of beer drinking between steps IMO. Turbos should be on in 2-3 hours, then the rest is hooking up oil lines, intercooler and charge pipes, oil pump mount/wiring, and vacuum lines. That shouldn't take 12+ hours.
