Fabberge Twin Turbo Kit for my LFX Camaro

Hi everyone,

Fairly new to Camaro5... figured I'd start a thread now, but I made a deposit on the Fabberge twin turbo kit for my LFX using the group buy discount. I've been following various threads for the last year and finally made the decision. I spoke with Brian today and they are getting everything together for me. I am looking at some local shops here in Colorado to do the install. Can't wait for the kit to arrive!!! I'll post some pics of my car later today.

-Nick

That's the one, works great for me. You'll want an air fuel gauge too I run the aem one so they match.

Damn I didn't know you were running nitrous. What made you want to change? And I had 32,000 miles when I put my kit on.

I've never owned a turbo car before so I was intrigued when I saw this kit. Also, some of my friends have turbo cars and I love them. Plus, I don't want to run nitrous on the street. I'm only running a 75 shot though.

Jantzen,

What inlet fitting do you have on the MM can? It looks like the 3/8 hose barb from the pics.

Ordered the B&M 70273 SuperCooler... hopefully there is enough clearance to mount this above the intercooler

You might have to get creative with the trans cooler mounting. I looked at the cylindrical frame rail mounted ones a while back.

Your RX can single valve? You coming to the fest? Let me know how much you want. I cracked a fitting on top of my RX can.

MagnumForce tried a couple different tranny coolers up front, he prob has a good idea what would fit up there. I probably need to do one too for the strip but honestly I don't see that high of a trans tempature.

The cans that come with the kit are dual valve cans, but I'm pretty sure you can just plug off one of them and it works just like the single can. I tried selling mine and didn't have much luck. If you want to try it I would just give it to you for whatever the shipping would be. I have no use for it, i only ran it for 3k miles.

I believe the trans cooler I ordered is the one MagnumForce uses. I've never been to the fest before but would love to go, idk if I'll have the time this year...

Have you ever taken your car to the drag strip stock and/or with the nitrous setup?

Bone stock was 14.2-3 in Michigan... I didn't get the nitrous until I moved to Colorado so elevation affects my times, but the time was around 14 seconds... I'll have to dig up the time sheets. I'll def get some time sheets at Bandimere Speedway once the turbo kit is installed. Do you have any new times?... It would be awesome to see that 11.XX time slip
