From a pure acceleration standpoint, turbo.

A turbo is exhaust driven so it will come up on boost very quickly at relatively low RPM. A SC is driven off the crank so it builds boost much more linearly.

A turbo car has all of its torque available much sooner... that's a good thing.

If you're going to track your car then it becomes not quite so black and white as linear power application becomes your friend. There are plenty of great turbo'd track cars though, it all depends on how the system is designed.

Even if there was a bit of lag this engine is strong enough on its own that it wouldn't hardly matter.

What do you have in mind for max boost? Is the system being designed to work with the stock converter?

Probably 6-7 pounds on the basic kit out of the box. The stock converter should be fine with the turbo size we chose. The turbo will easily be good for 20 psi and high 600s whp with no problem at all. Can't wait to get it on the dyno.

Hate to ask a stupid question, but here goes. Purchased extended warr. on my Camaro, will adding turbo void that and the orginal factory warranty? Already removed the stock mufflers and replaced with stainless pipes and was leary about that. Hate to have something fail and not have it covered. Thanks

If you wanna play you have to pay. Power adders not supplied by the factory are not covered in your warranty.

But will only affect the warrantee on parts of the drivetrain. IE, if your window motor stops working it's still covered.

We have built a lot of turbo cars with less engine bay room with the turbo in that same spot with no more heat issues than any turbo setup really.

As far as the warranty, with the final design of the kit, we are trying out best to not have to move or modify many of the stock parts. This way the turbo kit will be able to be fully removed without any trace of it ever being there. Not saying that you should turn the boost up to 35psi and try to blow your engine so you can get it replaced but we all know that factory cars have some smaller parts break and the warranty department usually frowns on serious aftermarket parts and turns people down.

Results coming soon plus some more pics!!!

Bump for updates- as for my heat question- I don't mean in comparison to other systems, rather, would it get to the point that a vented hood would be recommended and/or using heat tolerant accessories?

Thanks, piping is pretty much finished, we will have some pictures up for you soon. We should have it all completed here pretty soon and will have the final results. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me on here or send me a pm.


Thanks guys!!

Also, as far as heat goes, I really don't think it will be any kind of issue. The underhood temps might rise a little bit but nothing to have any concerns on. We will do some stock vs turbo under hood temps for comparison.

Our website is "under construction" and we will have a splash page completed very soon. As a matter of fact, a member from this site contacted us about having his company do our website and we have agreed to having them do it for us. Just our way of helping out the Camaro5 community.

For now, all questions can be asked in this thread or PMed to JTinFL and we will try to answer them daily.Or you can call if you like. We are right on schedule with the Turbo Kit(actually a little ahead of schedule) and will keep everyone posted with progress and pics.

Thank You

Wait I just realized that you guys are just up the road from me. You should brig it down to one of the cruz in's down here in Naples. There is probably some good potential business at the meets.

new 2 turbos

again maybe a silly question but this may help many others:
the turbo is run off the exhaust, so is a single turbo run off one side of a dual exhaust? If so does this not reduce exhaust pressure off one side of the engine and may cause problems with balancing of engine wear?

Is there a plan for twin turbos and any concerns for a daily driver?

thanks so much

We will be making an announcement very soon, which will consist of our pricing and introductory offer to the first 5 customers. This introductory offer, you will not want to miss out on. Just hold on a little bit longer, it will be worth the wait. We are very meticulous about our Custom Kits and we won't put them out to the customers until their 110%.

I'm no turbo expert, but every single-turbo'd vehicle that I have ever seen has had a crossover pipe that routes exhaust from both banks through the turbo.
