Hey everyone.... I am new to Camaro5, and just subscribed to this thread. I just got my new Camaro and am definitely going to be going this route. I have read all the 14 pages of this thread lmao and appreciate every bit of it.

As someone recently said earlier, I am going to wait until my 3 year warranty expires before going through with this mod. A couple of questions though, and forgive my ignorance because I am just getting into engines, but what affect does this have on it being street legal? This is the only car I have and have to make sure that it can get me back and forth to work legally.

Also, this may be better for a different thread but I am sure someone here can help, I am looking to start with an exhaust as was recommended, but don't know which is a good way to go. (Again new to working with cars.) I have been looking at Loudmouth but any recommendation/reasons to go any other way?

blitz work very well but are a bit pricey. my buddy has one in his and it takes a few to get used to it but it works damn good and has some awesome features.

First of all welcome. Secondly, the impact on the car being street legal goes one of two ways:

A) The state of Virginia has rules about aftermarket mods which forces the company to have a specific certification to sell the part as street legal.

or B) The state doesn't enforce rules regarding aftermarket parts and the kit is street legal without any certification.

In California, every aftermarket part needs a CARB certification sticker/number in order for it to be legal to use on the street. It severely limits my options for a forced induction kit because only a few companies want to put forth the time/effort/money to get certification for their kits.

Virginia might be the same. I would suggest asking your local DMV or a law enforcement officer.

Thanks Mindz... I also have to pass inspections with whatever exhaust I go with. Any personal favorites? I was looking at Borla and Loudmouth.

I have set up sooo many boost controllers in the last 5 years or so. I have done Blitz, HKS, Greddy, Turbosmart Eboost, Apexi, and tons of others and the HKS EVC6 is the easiest to teach the customers how to use and actually uses a "Closed loop" boost control to always try to reach the boost level you set it.


The common problem I see with electronic boost controllers is that they all set the boost with a Gain and Set gain to control it. This will change and make more boost in the cold weather than it will in the hot weather. This gain is set off wastegate spring pressure.

The HKS EVC6 actually sets the boost level off of psi and thats why I love it. It dials in the set boost year round and can be set up by rpm, speed, throttle, ect.


Some more updated info coming on the Turbo kit that is going to be some great news!! Will explain later this week.



Also, Tommy, good to see you again. Im trying to build one of these 2010 Camaros to take down that Black SS you have. haha

I did a little research what about the new HKS EVC-S? Its small design would look good mounted to the left of the steering wheel on the colored strip. Would make it real easy to see and adjust on the fly. Says its only 11 mm thick so wouldn't stick out far. Jeremy see if you can get one of those for my car. 4 days and counting before I make the trip to FL to drop of my beast. Going to be the badass in GA if anyone dares to compete. Keep up the ass kicking guys.

Thanks man. I will look into it today and see what I come up with. If it is the same exact thing but with a smaller screen then that would be even better.

Looks like 11.2 might be wishful thinking based on the vortech results which i believe is approx. the same horsepower as this setup. They got 12.33 at 115mph and this was with a cat back and drag radials


Does anyone have any track times with this turbo setup?

I'm gonna chim in here,and say JT and the guy's at the shop have been very busy on my car,But when I pick it up which will be sometime next week,I will be making a pass very soon there after,And I can promise you it will be faster than 12.30's or I'll push it off a ****ing cliffI personally think he just needs some more seat time with that 12.30 run Learning to launch and such,I want have that problem cause I,ve drove many to the 330 on the bumper

Hey guys, sorry we have been busy here working full time on these couple. We could have already had both of these cars done at the shop but we are making small changes and making the kit better and better every time.


We now have found a way to go around the AC lines so the factory AC lines will work with out changing them at all.

Get a good driver behind the wheel on some tires and this car should go low 11s all day on 8.5 psi. Turn up the boost and it will be much faster.

We are aiming to bring the perfect single turbo kit. We have the design all complete now and perfected and almost ready to ship. Dyno on Tuesday for the L99 and probably later that week for the LS3 even though we are adding a few more things to that car. Thanks for all the positive feedback and more updates really soon.

It will easily be done. just like I stated in my previous post. We offered the free install on the first few so we could make minor changes that have already been done now. Thanks!
