My camaro mild build plan

Figured I would post this and see what you think of my mild build I'm going be doing or for you to point out things I may be overlooking and not going list clutch or differential and axels but feel free to list what you think is a good value and quality product

I'm going with a agp twin turbo kit with a g force 2 boost controller, hp tuner,ngk tr6 plugs,850 injectors,msd bap(completed), I will be then adding bmr trailing arms, bmr toe rods(completed)(added rear subframe bushings poly, won't do till I get a zl1 rear end set up),then think I will go dashlogic for guages,(completed)and will be rerouting turbo dump tube into the exhaust and also probably upgrade the exhaust to a 3 inch. That is my plan let me know what you think thanks and this is on a 2011 ss/rs vert with a 6 speed manual

(Update added led fog lamps, mr228 rims, and also interior lighting)

Thank you. If I were starting all over, I would do the same thing you are. Stock as possible with a set of twins with fuel and suspension upgrades.

The only thing I would do that you do not have listed are rear sub frame bushings, either poly or solid. I have poly and have no complaints.

Too far gone from stock to remember. When I installed them, I had a cog driven Ysi, big cam, solid engine mounts and headers.

My wife often complains about various noises from her car. My reply: turn the stereo up and sing along.

Even if there is, I consider it a fair trade for the extra performance.

Is the rwhp dyno video listed on your profile your car? If so and what is your current best quarter mile time

All the video links in my profile are of my car. The final turbo numbers were posted in the sponsor thread. I don't think there is a video that shows the final numbers which were around 1100whp. I broke it (engine) shortly after getting it back so I have no times. It has been down since Feb '14 undergoing a lot of transformation. I decided since it was down anyway, I would take my time and do EVERYTHING to it I wanted done in one fell (loooong time) swoop.

What really stinks is the local track closed a few years ago. Topeka (hour away) is basically closed. The closest 1/4 track is around 2 hours away. There is an 1/8 mile track about 45 mins away but it isn't sanctioned by anyone and isn't the greatest track for high HP cars.

So, no, I don't have any times for it. I plan to get some at some point as it will have more than enough power to run single digits but I'll be the limiting factor along with trying to do it with a 6 speed. After a LOT of seat time I might get something respectable out of it. At this point, it is just an overpowered street toy.

That sucks, are you going with a 427 lsx block with twins? The biggest thing I like with turbos you can turn the boost down for street and crank it up for the track especially with the power level you will probably be at, what hp you looking at gunning for,
also watched some nice videos of your car on you tube you where running against some other big time hp cars, also it looked like some of the runs where half mile runs. And also wish you the best of luck on your build

It's a 388 LSx (Darton wet sleeved block - 4.125x3.625) with twin turbos and LS7 top end. I wanted something a little different and something that would live. I figured only revving it to 7200 rpms would make a lot of power and last me a long time (I hope). I'm going to max the turbos out as I've actually swapped to smaller ones for a more fun street car. The turbos are good for 1300hp and that is what I'm going to try and make on high boost. I plan to have 4 boost level settings (eboost2 controller). I don't know what they will be yet but likely 1: 10-12#, 2: 16-17#, 3: 20-21#, 4: 25#

I have never raced my car in any event so unless there is a clone out there...

That sound like a very awesome and sound build that your putting together, and as far as the videos I just went off one of your links listed for you tube and then searched videos from crazyelf I believe was the name and though it was videos of you my mistake,

I gotcha. Crazyelf works for CPR and he and Joe@CPR post all kinds of videos of their cars, customer cars, etc. CPR is where the first AGP setup was installed. Heck, there might be videos of them racing my car. That's what I was (and am) building it for.
