Daily Driven Twin Turbo SS (In process of building new forged motor)

Finally decided to make a build thread..

When i was younger my parents had a 67 camaro that they were going to hand down to me but at the time i was to young and stupid to care about it so i told them i didnt want it and they eventually sold it. About 3 months after they sold it i started getting into cars and realized how dumb i was for passing up a camaro so i was determined to get one when i became old enough to drive.

I bought my car on March 29th 2013 after months and months of looking for the perfect one. Its a 2010 ABM 2SS/RS with sunroof. I am the second owner and when i got it the only mod it had was skipshift eliminator, and it didnt stay like that for very long…

So we ran into some problems...when the car was on the lift getting ready to install the turbos they saw that the rear main seal was leaking oil and a motor mount was cracked... so while the tranny was off to replace the seal we decided it'd be a good idea to put in a better clutch while its apart,i ordered a level 3 monster clutch. clutch should be there by tuesday. hopefully we dont run into more problems...

Any up dates on your install yet? Let us know your take on the system once you get a chance to test it out.

I got the car back a couple days ago, I installed a new clutch because they had to drop the tranny to fix my rear main seal leak and I figured I might as well do it since the tranny will be off. So we didnt dyno it yet because they wnna break in the clutch first. Its tunned for driving around but not WOT. I'll be going back soon too dyno tune it in a few days. but its running great and sounds amazing. ill post a video in a little while

Not such a great video but it's the best I have for now, I'll have better videos after we dyno it
The first part if you listen closely you'll hear the turbos whistling and a little bov noise but nothing big
