All Turbonetics kits come with a ball bearing turbocharger. Turbonetics hasn't ever produced a full turbo system without one. In fact all of their kits use a Ceramic Ball Bearing water cooled center section. Fastest spool up, lowest heat. Also Turbonetics doesn't produce any non-Cali legal kits anymore. They discontinued all of them. This kit along with the Mustang GT kit are/will be fully street legal including a CARB EO (for those Cali folks who know what that means with me)

If you look at this pic from the test car:



you can see that the kit hot side piping starts after the resonator which is behind the manifolds and cat. As long as the header doesn't go past that point there shouldn't be any issues running it. If you remove the cats obviously that will not be CARB legal as you cannot move or modify the cats and keep CARB legality. If that's not something you are worried about then go for it.

GOODBYE MAGGIE... HELLO DOLLY!!!
That's my buddy Reggie and he is the man.... He's absolutely on point in that video. CARB legal, 650 WHP, 9 PSI, complete kit with tune.

Can you verify with Turbonetics if Meth kit can be added since the MAF sensor is so close to the engine?
Thanks!
A meth kit can always be added. It would have to be after the MAF of course but yes it can be done. On other cars I have used Throttle body spacer plates to inject at the throttle body or you can tap it directly into the intake manifold. In fact Turbonetics/Spearco makes a water/meth injection system I used on my Turbonetics 350Z for a while. Link:

The performance numbers would be less but in terms of reliability wouldnt it fair quite a bit better?

All Turbonetics kits come with a ceramic ball bearing water cooled turbo. This kit will come with a 61 mm (HP61/T61) turbocharger with a ceramic ball bearing and water cooled. All of the water cooling lines come with the kit too.

Yea i know, that was a nightmare. It was just wrong timing.

They will be putting a meth kit on my car. So i am pretty sure it could be done.

I think ts going to be a 63mm size turbo. the 61mm ones are on the mustang. This motor is bigger so they are going to make it with the next step up turbo.

Could have been worst. You were lucky to get your [brand new] car in one piece. But it worked for the best.

I've had several turbo cars before, and this design looks very nice and clean. I like how the return exhaust get split evenly before going back to muffler. As much I like PD S/C, I love turbos! It just gives you a different feel. Sometime I press the gas a small bit and hold it and watch how the turbo creates more power, but from that power the turbo spins more, generating more. It's like a snowball effect, and I'm still holding the same on the pedal. You won't see that with S/C. But the CATS put a real drag on the turbo.

I'll check with Reg and Tyler but when I talked to them week before last it was a 61mm. Maybe that changed.

They did one for Jay Leno's car and Turbonetics has indicated a V6 kit will happen if they can make it CARB legal.

BTW, is there a dyno chart for this kit yet, running with stock manifold and stock exhaust? I like to see the TQ curve.

Thanks!

I should have a dyno sheet next week. The head designer and tuner was out the last half of last week so I should have more info tomorrow when he gets back. And yes Turbonetics is doing all their testing and tuning with the stock manifold and exhaust.

Could you please clarify (as I've made two pointers on the picture) what is the diameter of the tube from Turbonetics that connects to the stock system? The reason I ask, is if someone already has a set of headers that are 3", will it work? Or if someone is planning to get headers, they should match this size.

I don't recall the ID off the top of my head. It will be whatever the factory ID is as that should be the factory b pipes coming off the header.

Miaplaya, sorry if this has been asked before, but what is the price of the turbo, is it available for the LS3 yet, and is there some group buy that turbonetics might do?

Thanks

I don't have any pricing info. I'm not a vendor so I wouldn't even be able to give you a vendor price other then the Turbonetics posted MSRP. The kit is being wrapped up now. Last I checked they were getting finished parts for the car so they could do final test fitting, testing, and confirm the tuning. I'm going to call the Marketing Manager tomorrow and get some more details.

I sent them an email last week and got a reply saying that it would be sometime this summer for a release. Don't know if anybody here can confirm this or not.

So just a few updates that I got from Turboentics on the kit they have been working on. Turbonetics for now is going with a 72mm compressor instead of the 61mm they were going to use before. The 72mm compressor is good for 850 CHP of air which is quite a bit higher than the 61mm. Turbonetics is mocking up the 72mm on a Camaro they just bought. The 72mm is what they are using now but it may change later from what I'm told. Pictures of the current mockup 72mm below:
