You haven't even seen where the filters go yet. The mock up photo doesn't have the inlet pipes. Plus, you would have to totally submerge the filters to have an issue. Water spraying up on them won't cause an issue.

Thanks Matt.
The $$$$ might scare me though.
The parts looks first class for sure.

It really won't though.. Yes its more than the centri-style blower kits, but right in line with the PD blowers actually.. Remember you are getting TWO turbos, TWO wastegates (Wastegates arent even on supercharged cars as a bae kit) ...

I have pricing, just have to PM me for it!

Actually it comes out cheaper than blowers if you want to make 600+rwhp.

No need for headers, no need for CAIs, no need for pulleys, no need for overdrive cogs, no need for 8 ribs, no need to do anything. The base price maybe a bit higher than a blower kit but if you figure blower+headers+cai it will be cheaper.

It makes sense to be honest. If the kit will support a stock 6.2L to a nasty 416/427 combo. In the long run it would be cheaper kinda.Just need to by a better drivetrain to support the extra power. lol.....

This is going on our shop car 417ci combination, 10.7:1 compression. These are the AGP S256 upgraded turbos from the base just to try them out on a A/R .63. The base turbos will get you into the 1k HP range no problem, just trying these out. We'll be trying a bunch of the turbo combinations from AGP on this particular car.

Kit looks awesome. I was leaning toward the Granatelli kit... but this one may sway my opinion. Interested to see how it turns out.

As per the air filters, they are located off of the turbos, but they are turned up on a good angle into the engine bay. AGP has been able to test the kit through heavy AZ rain and never had a problem even in standing water. THey found it to be less efficient running a long tube cold air system back up to the front, so that's why they placed the filters turned up off the turbos themselves.

Pictures of the filter placement would be very helpful also.

I have prototype only pictures right now here.. So you'll see their prototype intake tube in these pics, not the finalized tube with the nice black wrinkle finish!

I'll get you some when Kevin @ AGP returns.. Basically they are on a 45* up off of the turbo, far enough up that they do not pick up water at all in standing 6" puddles and the AZ rain

Are the filters closer to the exhaust manifolds. If so, will they be sucking in hot air?

That is why it has a crazy huge intercooler. Testing shows it hurt more to make cold air intakes and the fmic takes care of the heat. The compressors make enough heat. The intercooler is massive and intake temps post fmic have been almost ambient.

Results, like Matt said it made 680 rwhp 740rwtq on a stock l99 with only other mod being 3" exhaust. Manual would have been 710-720.

The FMIC is really big.. We'll be doing testing without and with methanol also to see what additional IAT's we can control since we are down here in the FL heat!

I'm mostly sold. What supporting fuel system needs are there? The booster pump or replacement unit? I am still not sure how I feel about the booster pumps. I'm assuming changing injectors is a given.

Kit comes with injectors tuner etc. Of course that can be customized. It all depends on how much power you want to make.

I saw two turbos with another shops name on them on the shelf yesterday. I want to see what that does but can't ruin the surprise.

Stupid question.
Can I guy run hi flow cats after the turbos for emission reasons or for state inspection?(low boost or a drive with grandma).
Then built a second set of off road connection pipes when you stay at your local state and play at the track?
Should have some room between the turbo and the x-pipe,you would think........
