Think he said he deleted his H-Pipe and resonators.

Drink some beer, helps focus.

Would he need to remove any exhaust components to help flow to spool the turbo's up?

I will pop a top as soon as I get home from work!

I would dump the hi-flow cats for the same reason you gutted yours. I would go with 2.5 inch pipe behind the turbo for at least 12 inches (I don't remember if the IPS kit comes with that section or not). Other that I think he's good. I have no cats and run the stock h-pipe with resonators back to MRT 2 mufflers. I have not seen any sign of back pressure issues.

Anyone have twins installed on a 2013 LT RS with pictures of the install?

If you are ok with the expense twin turbos is the way to go. Very few ways you are going to be able to get close to 500hp to the ground and you can goto the website and see the install of a 2012. The silver Camaro is on the forum.

Hey!

So I ordered this Kit, IPS Twin-Turbo. I'm good friends with our main tuning shop up here in Wisconsin, And he said that this system is badass and raw in power. I am a daily Driver, and will be using this on a daily driver car. You want to keep your gear ratios stock if manual, the lower gears, the more torque/acceleration you will get. Your engine will be fine, as long as your not beating the hell out of it. If you decide you want to, upgrade your pistons, fuel pump. You will need a high performance clutch, or you will burn yours out faster than candy. However, stock v6 camaro w/ vmax throttle bottle and twin turbo, you will be faster than a stock SS, any v8, as well as just as quick as a ZL1, while getting 30 MPG highway, 22 city!

You on the money! My twin kit has been on my car since March 2012 and car is still rolling. And on stock internals and transmission. Only problems I've had was with the kit as it is custom, but all good now. But using any FI system isn't bullet proof.

Do you have a manual or automatic? With a manual it should be no problem. With an auto you cab do it, but you are at the ragged edge of the hpfp. With a good tune you should be good, but I.wouls dial it back myself.

Very nice numbers. That's about 630 hp at the crank, which is where I ran out of hpfp. We could have gotten a little more with the meth, but I wanted that just for safety.
