I take it no one knows?

Well no one really knows the limits yet. We will probably all push the 600whp level and see what happens for a while. I am sure people will push the limits a little more and more to see what it will take.

Ouch. Wouldn't want to be the owner of that car! I know I'm going to be getting your kit. For certain. Why? Because you are giving the same amount of HP as Hennesy and Lingenfelter for far less cost. Your personal service seems to be on target as well.

I just wish that I wasn't so adamant on keeping the drivetrain warranty for at least 3 years. That said, should I decide to start doing smaller modifications...what would I be able to do that will be compatable with this kit so that I don't waste money?

For example...I don't want to get a CAI if its going to go to waste when I get your kit down the road. Same thing goes for headers since your kit is going to be running off the exhaust mani.

Would I be stuck with just doing like a cat-back for now and maybe non-engine things like the suspension?

Do non-engine mods build it from the ground up..and remember power that you can't get it to the ground is useless!

+1 or also you can do things like a full exhaust.


I would leave the car stock or add an exhaust and then just wait until I put a turbo kit on it. Anything else would be a waste of money to me.

Now when you say full exhaust...do you mean headers-back? Or cat-back?

I'll do the Pedder XA coilovers and short-shifter anyway at some point. Just wanted to know what sort of engine / drivetrain options I had available to me given the intended build up with your kit.

Thanks for the prompt reply as well. I'm really tempted on buying it now and sitting on it...but I'm sure you'll have another sale in the future.

Thanks! I would do a full cat back exhaust system and thats about it. Our turbo kit will bolt right up to the factory exhaust placement so it will fit as well on the aftermarket one. Give us a call if you have any questions.

No problem. Stage 2 cams will be a great combination with our turbo kit. Can't wait to see the results!

Well guys, we have two L99s and two LS3s so we are good on the developing cars. We will have some updated information very soon and have a few more Ultimate Performance single turbo kits running around.


We might even have a couple cars coming up that want to push the turbo a little more and show you guys what it is capable of on an otherwise stock engine. Then just turn the boost down and ride around on low boost.

JT I would like to drop in to your shop in November around the Rib Fest. We are from Canada and visit my mom in St Petes every year. I am waiting for the convertible (its been a long wait so far) but want to plan for a great turbo upgrade. Looking for personal advise and direction. Yours sounds like a great way to go!

We offer a couple different boost controller options for our turbo kit. We can install and set up all of them for you if we install the kit here and can walk you through it if you have any issues if you install it there.

***UPDATE***

We at Ultimate Performance want to take a second to thank all of all the customers that we have met and spoke to through this great forum here, www.camaro5.com. We hope that when you have called, that we have helped you to the best of our abilities and answered all your questions. Due to the high number of calls, we have had to call a lot of people back and wanted to say sorry for the short delay.

We would like to say that all of the orders taken will be shipping out in around 2 weeks. We are getting that shipping time down shortly, as soon as we catch up, and will have kits sitting on the shelf ready to ship.

Also, we are finishing up our "1000HP Upgrade Kit" for all the people who want to step it up in the near future.

Thanks again for all the support and THANKS to Camaro5 for all the help.

There are some Very Cool boost controllers out there. I believe that one called the e-boost will control boost by gear too. It allows you to have the boost set lower through first and second, then turn it up in third and then put the coals to it in fourth or however you want to set it. If I were to set up a turbo, I'd use this! It's reasonably priced, especially for the features that it's got. I have no affiliation with them, just passing on some info.

Here's some info on it:

I am a big fan of the HKS EVC6. I have used it in so many cars and it works right every time.

We will be installing one in a car that is sitting here and will show you guys all about it.

HKS EVC, and Blitz work well, Justin- Have you tried the new EBC from ARK Design yet? They work great and you can put them anywhere.
