By the time testing is done and jigs are made and all the pieces/parts are sourced I am sure it will be a couple months. We are going to do a few installs here in the mean-time to aid in providing pics / info for the install instructions so if you are interested in getting one done sooner shoot me a PM!

Are there install instructions for the GT kit available? I assume they are pretty similar steps, no? I would probably just install the kit myself and it would be nice to wrap my head around what needs to be done.

My six speed goes to IPS for this kit next Saturday. They're going to use it to make the rest of the necessary piping for the kit. I'm also going to get an AEM electronic boost controller and fuel pressure gauge, a dual fuel pump from Livernois and 81lb injectors. I can't wait to see what it does!

Progress on getting some of the parts in has been predictably slow but a lot of it has been on our end due to having so many R&D projects going on at the same time over the winter.

Mark's Camaro left Friday with his GT35's back on and we are working on the kits for the next two cars now (6-speed and another Auto). Once JIGs are checked and fitment is solid we will start ordering up all the components in the necessary quantities to start stocking the kits and talking ETA's.

Yes it is. I know a few costs have crept up a bit but hopefully we will be able to trim others to off-set once everything is said-and-done. We will have final pricing and the kit added to the website once the final two prototype cars are done.

My Whipple does its job, but twin turbos would be awesome.

Mine is the 6-speed that Jeff is talking about. I'm hoping to have it back by this weekend *crossing fingers*.

That would be an incredible price point, any idea what you guys would charge for install?

Ohhhh boy. For 6K, I'm a buyer. Looks like a badass kit.

Keeping an eye on this.

Are you guys going to start taking some money down for pre orders?

My 6-speed SS is over at IPS getting the "prototype" entry level kit put on. Once they get all of the measurements done, I believe they'll start building the pipes. I assume they'll start offering the entry kit to the public within the next month or two. I know they don't want to put it out too soon and get something wrong or forget something.

Been driving mine around for the last couple of weeks... Put almost 1k miles on it, went to Myrtle Beach SC with it and have spanked everything that's tried to pull up beside me. Been to the beach, in the rain, and both me and the wife love it!

If you aren't getting in line you are getting left behind!

You should have stopped and said Hi on your way through.

You said the biggest difference is the turbo's used to save some money. What would be the biggest impact? Spool time, life of turbos? etc..

smaller garrett turbos, but still quality turbos so life expectancy should be good. spool time is actually a little better but potential is limited to ~700 rwhp. so if you are not planning on modding past that, entry level kit is for you. if you planning on building your engine and running more boost than go with the v-banded kit.

Sounds like a great kit if not wanting to build a forged block. I would love to cam that may push things a little far although boost could be adjusted. Anyone know a rough estimate for someone to install forged internals? I guess at the point rebuilding the upper side would be done also...
