id say the pros and cons are pretty much the same for any turbo or supercharger kit. pros from my experience with the TT kit so far is turbo lag and just like any FI kit the increased wear on the engine. i love the turbo whistle but unlike a supercharge kit which is always putting wear on your engine, the turbos are only there for when you need it

remove the breather at idle (don't drive) and see if it goes away, you need a lot of evac in these motors

well first, I wish I had gotten the powder coat black instead of polished. and the second video sounds like the oil pump. mine doesn't have a high pitch like that pump but I recognize the sound pattern.

Do what Sycraft said. Take the engine cover off and remove the breather while it is running. Then use your hand to cover and uncover the filler hole. If it goes away when air can move freely through the filler hole then is the breather or another part of the evac system (I'm not sure about how the whole setup looks).

Yep when I take my hand and cover it, the noise comes back again, and exactly when I remove it the noise goes away.

Yep, need to have more evac and ventilation, remove check valve in breather, you should really research evap systems to be sure you do not blow a seal.

Its actually not letting enough air in, its pulling air in around the seals. Under boost I would be worried about pushing a seal out, especially the rear main

Trust us... Take the check value out the breather cap. Your engine will run and perform noticeably better. Do this, run the car hard with it then run it without. You will see the difference. We have all been though this. If Clint didn't tell me about that check value I think I would of blew my seal my current power level. Because my engine was straining at times.

Ah damn. The problem is everyone's camaro looks like.... a camaro. Also what did you do to remove the check valve. Just snap it off? I'm still using the original breather. Mine never whistled.

Mine didn't whistle the engine just started to feel like it was straining to perform after awhile. Actually it was Matt (FSP) who told me to pull the check value. A pair of pliers will do the job. Just grab the nipple on the inner bottom and pull it. It will pop right out.

if you put an aftermarket exhaust on the car it will definitely help you as well

Well pull it out and it will pop right off! Our engines don't need the breather cap. It was a bunch of bull Tracy from the former RX company started saying people needed. It ended up causing more problems that anything. Some even had their dip stick fly off because of all the unwanted pressure.
