MAPerformance 5th Gen Camaro Turbo Kit Development and Progress Thread

At MAPerformance we attribute our success in the turbocharged sport compact market to having a passion for the platform. Our staff was hungry for knowledge and driven to extract performance; not only in the workplace, but also in their free time as they owned the vehicles themselves. With that being said, when members of our team started to move into new platforms that ranged from the Pontiac GTO to various LS swapped chassis' including an FD RX7 and multiple S10 trucks our next endeavor seemed pretty obvious.

Shortly thereafter we acquired two new platforms from which we would begin our journey; A 1969 Chevrolet Camaro (which will require a separate thread entirely) and a 2010 2SS/RS LS3 Chevrolet Camaro. Our 2010 project started with the basics which have now become our Stage 1 and Stage 2 packages, but the end goal was always forced induction. At this time we intend to develop two kits; An "Economy" kit for the budget minded consumer and a "Race" version for those seeking 4 digit horsepower numbers and single digit 1/4 mile times The purpose of this thread is to share development of these kits with the community and perhaps garner some insight along the way.

Development will start with the "Economy" kit which is already underway, please feel free to share your comments and/or suggestions!

Finally, another single kit on offer aside from the turbonetics. Does this use custom turbo manifolds or does it plumb after the headers/cats? very interested.

The driver side manifold is replaced with our custom manifold, the passenger side manifold stays stock and a crossover pipe runs into the backside of the custom manifold. I should have more pics and info tomorrow. We need to uninstall the cam currently in the car to get baseline numbers for our kit installed on a totally stock motor.

I could run my car over if you didn't want to tear a cam out. I'm only 10 miles from you guys.

Little More progress today, we are working on the fuel pump and injector setup. Here is a few pictures of the almost finished engine bay work. BOV still needs to be welded on and then to the dyno it goes.
