I should be getting more pics of it soon. Like I said those were development pics so the piping isn't finalized yet.

The 62 mm compressor is good for more then 600 WHP so we'll see what they come up with. I know they are trying to keep it reliable and CARB compliant so we'll see.
VERY COOL!! Would like to see the dyno and numbers and if it is CARB compliant. 625 at the crank is still gobs of horses at the wheels. Like you said, about 550 or more RWHP sounds about right, IF it has 625 at the crank.
I'm gonna guess it's going to be closer to the 7 psi range with pump gas. Keep us posted please! THANKS!!

I absolutely will. I can also tell you for sure it will be CARB compliant. Turbonetics end of lifed all of their non-CARB compliant kits last year and won't produce any new kits that are not.

That's for sure. I've never had a car there but I have been in a few mags before. They are all long gone now along with most of the economy but I still have copies of my issues.

Back from SEMA finally. I'm posting pics tonight of the kit if Sam hasn't already. Car and kit look amazing. Final numbers won't be released for a bit as there is more tuning to do.

Updates the first post with pics from SEMA. Final tuning is still being done. The base tune (first test tune) was making ~530 WHP at 7 PSI but that is certainly not the final number. The car needs to have final tuning done.

Hey Will, I think you might be the right person to ask this question. In Corvette world (the world that I came from), anyone who wanted to do Turbo, would do a TT. Having two smaller turbo would yield to a quicker response and less lag, especially for DD. There were only a handful in C5 that did big single turbo mainly for drag racing.

Now, with the new Camaro, I see more and more "Single turbo v.s. TT (only one company does TT). My confusion is, we are still dealing with the same V8 LS3 in Corvette, so why a large single turbo with lag v.s. TT for Camaro? Is it because of cost cutting? As someone in Turbo solution, wouldn't you agree a TT would be better and more responsive in low RPM?

Thank you in advance!
