Greetings Everyone,
My name is Matt Holm. 5th Gen SS said that this forum was one of the best, so I am glad to be here. I have read through the thread, and rather than quote each and every question and misinformed statement, I will just let each of you know that I am here to answer any and all questions.

Seriously, your set up is sweet and I want one but what kind of power gain can I actually expect to achieve. Without meth, even though it sounds like I wont need it at all.

Thank you VERY much for the praise and compliments.

We are shooting for comparable numbers to the LS3 Vettes. I will have true numbers for the Camaro as soon as production run returns from the coaters.

Here is what we did with a stock LS3 vs STS Twin system at 8.5 lbs

I honestly cannot see any reason why we won't be virtually the same. We will see first thing next week! I will debut the Dyno run here on Camaro5.

Have one scheduled for tuning in mid Sept. The basis of the system will be similiar. The biggest challenge is tuning...ect. There is a demand-It will be made I promise.

I bought a LT specifically for your system. Ever since I saw Gearz and the Copper Armour All Vette, I planned on my new Camaro to be a "Modern" Muscle Car.

STS Turbo and ZZ Motorsports have been working together to develop a special offer exclusive to the Camaro 5 Forum.
The special offer will run until October 10th!!
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...600#post852600

A big THANK YOU has to go out to all the folks at STS for putting together this offer, and for developing a truly awesome Twin turbo system for the new Camaro.

Besides the price, what is the difference in turbos and superchargers?
Thanks.

That has got to be one of the most popular kits we have-besides the Camaro.
And thanks again for the kind words guys and girls!

The other catch is that they are using a turbo which is CAPABLE of 750HP. There is no way the stock LS3 is going to handle that power for more very long. Also the dyno chart was shown at 8psi or so....

As for the twins...it is CAPABLE of 1000+HP, and it comes with everything that you need for install. I would also bet that at the same boost level, the STS will have a higher HP...Just from a cooler intake charge.

I hope that helps you a little in the decision process.

7000 is quite a bit. but i would also expect twins to put out more power than a single

What we were talking about is the capabilities of each kit, and the contents of the kit...These HP capabilities are more than most people will ever see...more than most drivers can handle...and definetly more than the stock LS3 can handle.

People need to be sure they are reading these posts correct.
Be sure of which numbers you are readying...."capable of","HP","RWHP"

They are VERY different!

Are there any plans for CARB exemption? It was my understanding the LS1-car kit was exempted (or there was at least an attempt) so I'm hoping STS might try to make this available to us worried Californians

Thanks

Emissions are a breeze...The #@&*Q^@#(&*!@ CARB has taken years off my life. I will get the details from Mr Squires himself about the process on Monday. All is not lost with CARB, it has just been a nightmare.
Details to come
