Yes very soon. We will have full pictures of the kit on and off the car here very soon. We want to finalize the location of the wastegate and make sure it holds boost rock solid before we show the pictures of underneath. Can't wait to hit the track with this thing!

Even though we had a couple delays that set us back two or three days, dyno and track times will be next week for sure!! Can't wait to see how she does in the 1/4 mile.

We have made this kit so it bolts onto the stock manifolds. We have done this on other platforms and it works perfectly and keeps the costs down a lot. Dyno and track time very soon!

Do you use a single CAT or relocate the factory CATS?

The HP tuners, for those of us looking at other mods down the line, is there an option to upgrade to the full HP tuners suite? I personally want to upgrade to a custom VVT cam which will require special tuning of its own?

You made reference in an earlier post to a properly sized single turbo having less lag than a twin turbo setup....care to offer some more thoughts on that?

How are your components different than what STS uses (other than the location of course)

Well,...I'm watching this thread closly

No need for a header upgrade at this point. Many cars with this style setup make plenty of power without header upgrades. We will probably offer a complete turbo upgrade package including new headers, downpipe, turbo, and a few other things that will be good for 1000whp+.

Turbo lag is all due to the size of the turbo housing vs engine displacement. I didnt say that all single turbos have less lag but was saying that this turbo will have little to no lag.

I am not sure exactly what components STS is using on their Camaro kit. We are using top quality proven parts though so there will be no issues.

Thanks for the interest and we will update this thread a lot in the next week.
