Stay tuned we'll have final numbers soon , we'll be adding the boost controller so we can kill some down low torque and start bringing in a bit more boost upstairs. We will be limited at one point by fuel system but so far so good at our current power levels!

Definitely different than a blower car. I knew you would love it.

Winter project? Shouldn't take more than a day to bolt it on. Drive out for a weekend and drive home happy. We can do it in my garage if you want. Easy enough.

Vanquisher knows my pace...

In all seriousness it sounds pretty easy to install, the Maggie only took like 6 hours of work time, but like 4 days total. Too many "meh I'll get to it" breaks.

I did start changing spark plugs 4 hours ago... 4 down 4 to go

Squash, call Kevin. He needs a fuel system on the shop car so I'm sure he would be willing to trade fuel for turbos

We have 40 miles on the new motor, so the motor is still breaking in. Here is a preview of the dyno chart and a video to go along with it for now. Tomorrow we'll have the final numbers on break-in, then Matt will bring it back to us when it has about a thousand miles on it for the final dyno and any tune tweaks.
damn that compression is low LoL
incredible TQ.. cant wait to see the power when u actually rev it to 7000rpms..
gonna add more timing or boost?

Are you going to buy a clutch and fuel system and a bunch of other parts too? The kit is no where near 10k.

GQ4Life, Laguna blue z51 stingray on order. The day is shows up it gets torn apart for the same exact treatment. Badass cast OEM quality TT kit for C7s and 2014+ trucks on the way.

AGP already has a list of C7 guys who all want TT ASAP. When it's done right, everybody wants some.

It is what it is... We just used what was already used in the original motor build, it was already an excessive cost for our end-user on having to pull a motor and redoing it when it was just done.

However, we're going to add a boost controller, ramp up some boost upstairs, and go from there. We have fuel restrictions and the owner is not looking for a million HP. I can tell by his text messages tonight that is he is quite happy with the build and kit
