There is no need for long tubes with this kit at all. It will make plenty of power with the stock manifolds.

So there will be no extra power from from long tubes where does the turbo connect to the exhaust?

We will be playing around with different headers on it later but there are many cars making plenty of power on stock manifolds with similar setups.

I'm in. Deposit sent and waiting for transport company to pick up. First LS3 car to have the kit installed on (I think). Can't wait to see dyno numbers. I hope the clutch holds...

Me too if you wouldn't mind

And your saying we wont need a beefed up cam-shaft or anything like that to help hold the power this thing is putting out?

UPDATE

Well guys, have first two spots paid for and taken. We have one spot left for the FREE install and have a lot of people interested. The first person with a deposit will claim the spot. We also have our first LS3 car so the kit will be fit and finalized very soon.


I will get the videos cut up and uploaded of the in car ones for you guys.

How long for the install and tune if I brought you the car and dropped it off when you had an open bay?

Lots of people asking about long-tube headers. Don't waste your money if you're going turbo! That's $1200-$1800 that you can put toward the turbo kit.

JT, can we see a few pictures from underneath how the pipes goes from exaust manifold to turbo and then back to the cats?

For better flow, would you recommend LS7 manifolds or Shorty headers?

Thanks!

As soon as we have the kit sitting in a box ready to ship (which is less than 30 days away) we will be able to install it in a long day and then a few hours the next day to tune it.


Give us a call if interested and we can set up a time and date. Thanks!

Exactly!! Plenty of cars are making a lot of horsepower on stock manifolds with this type turbo setup.

We will be posting up full pictures of everything here soon. We are trying to get an engine or a prop engine to bolt it up onto so you can see it out of the car.

haha, well we would never ever do anything like that with a customers car. (unless they tell us to ) which was the case here. We treat every customers car with the upmost respect and it will return back to the customer in better shape than when they dropped it off. See you on Saturday.

Excellent JT, Just like APS had done it before.
Are you guys going to Immokalee track tonight with that Camaro?
If yes, I'll take a trip to see the car. Let me know!

D@mn! I thought I was set on an SC, but those videos are making me reconsider. I like how the blow-off valve is not ricer-like.

Great job!!! MORE PICS'!!!

JT, since the Turbo is way up in the engine bay, there is going to build a lot of heat in stop & go situations in engine bay. Are you guys going to do something to isolate or dissipate that heat from other plastics and rubbers in that area?

There is not much more heat than normal, if any. Our intake air temps at redline (after a full pull) were only 109F at the hottest. When we were driving, they were only 102F. That is simply amazing for a turbo car.

We will post pictures of the next car we do because we changed so many pipes and cut them up and rewelded that we wanted to put up the picture perfect set as we will be doing on the next car. So, more pictures of all the under the car pipes very soon.


Thanks for the great response on the kit. Give us a call or PM me if you have any more questions.
