You can expect this kit to cost around 6999 just like just abotu every other kit out there.

I can get you a kit. I will have access to some of the very first kits released.

I love what STS has done on some other vehicles, and I have driven a few of them!! You will be one happy Camaro driver!!

STS has been producing rear mounted kits since 2003. Alot of people (including myself) questioned how good a rear mounted turbo would work. The results have been good and I get alot of good feedback from customers. As mentioned on the last page. boost starts to come on in the upper 2000 RPM range. And from there, the tach quickly starts to sweep to redline. I've installed a number of these and had one on my '04 GTO. I later sold that car and the next owner took it to the next level with a head/cam upgrade. I believe he was around 600 rwhp.

Alot of people ask about water getting into the system. You have to be driving through some pretty deep stuff to have an issue. I wouldn't recommend driving through water that deep even without the turbo. STS had a video of a truck driving through water on a beach. No problems! Pre-filters are available. They are pretty much like socks that slide over the filter if you want added piece of mind.

I need one now though. An I only need 427rwhp or 454rwhp (which would be freakin' SuperSweet). STS please support ZZ. Do I have to beg, because there are some things I'm not above when the need is great.

Your very welcome! It is pronounced t-burn I've been talking to a local customer about possibly having an STS kit installed here after it's released. We need some more turbo cars in this area!

STS is a great option if you are looking for a great performing, and mild installation difficulty.

I am confident that STS is going to come through very soon.

We prototyped and built the only (as far as I know) STS setup for the 3800 market a few years ago on a Grand Prix. The setup works and produces some good power. I believe with the universal kit before intercooler the normally 162 fwhp Grand Prix GT made about 320 fwhp and went low 12's on about 9psi.

With the addition of an A2A intercooler the owner has added some more boost and is looking to improve on those numbers. The only problem for vendors wanting to make their own rear mount kits is that STS holds the patent for rear mounting a turbo and their license fees can be expensive.
