Wow that's one hell of a hiss! Good numbers too! I still prefer the whistle of a good supercharger though...

Im not an expert here but how would the stock Brembo brakes equipped on the SS handle this massive power increase? are they good enough? should we upgrade the brakes too?
thanks

Isn't the stock Tremec only designed to handle 600 ft-lbs?

love the performance gains, hate the way it sounds. It sounds like an electric car or something. Supercharged cars sound way better imo.

I don't care how much power it makes, the sound alone is worth the price!

Amazing. First thing I said when I looked under the hood of the SS was how there is plenty of room for a nice turbo or two This kit looks really clean, and the price seems pretty reasonable to me.

Anyone on the fence about this...do it. I can't tell you how much fun my '98 turbo SS was. You won't regret going turbo!

Hmm well let's see. The car is silent with stock exhaust, so it makes sense all you can hear is the turbo spooling...

Except the turbo spool is so loud you can't even hear the tires squealing...

Sounds like a fighter jet turbine, and this baby gets up and goes. I'm personally looking for something a little bit quieter. I'd still lke to be able to hear the v8 rumble.

Do you guys have any videos of inside the cabin during pulls? Thanks!

i like the turbo yall have and the power that is makes but over the turbo sound i would go with sts. and plus there twin turbo setup is gonna cost just as much as your single turbo setup. so if im gonna spend 8k i would rather on sts twin turbo setup. and still have a true dual exhaust and twin turbo with a nice sound to it.........

good job though. yall beat everyone else to the punch...
