GMS will be happy to build you whatever you want - gotta send the car. Do you want a car that haul ass or looks like a show piece - there is a huge difference

No problem. j/k

There you go 4th gen... JR will build you whatever you want. GMS already makes a great kit for the 5th gen. SSE 4 2SS is installing one on his Camaro. You can see how his runs when completed.

It's hard to void the powertrain warranty when the original powertrain dead stock and it is sitting across the room with a whopping 669 miles on it.

Momentary Thread Jack...

4thGen427CI, i'll be more than happy to report to you how my cars runs and send you copies of the dyno sheets so you can see where the power hits and how far it goes...

Built LS-3 427, forged rotating parts, head work, me and the car, and lots of other goodies... All in prep for the install of the TTI/Granatelli Twins... We are starting with 10 lb waste gate springs, and going up on the boost until we run out of fuel, then back it off just a smidgin... for motor safety... They actually started the tear down of my car yesterday... I'm expecting some pics soon... @$&#$^#$& or someone is in trouble...

Back to your regularly scheduled programming...

sorry Bruce... no please...

I believe the engine is now, but the car is waiting for the differential/axles which are being sent as I write this.

Are you going to run it at ~ 30 psi, or that's just going to be about the limit of the build? OMG... Just the fact it's going to be built to achieve that number is amazing...

I so can't wait to see what this baby does!!!

Built for roughly 2.5 atmospheres ~ 37 psi. The springs/wastegates can range 25 psi. We decided min will be set to ~ 8 which allows it to be cranked to 33 on the fly while driving. Computers recalculate injector duty cycles, fuel pump psi and race gas to pump gas (octane) mix automatically. Two tanks in trunk. One will be C-23/C-16 and the other 93. Hopefully we can drive along like grandma, pull in to a track, put a helmet and suit on, let some air out of the tires, crank the boost and go considerably faster.

I think I'll get an infraction if I post what I'm thinking...

Any insight into how the computer actually does all that or is it still "hush hush" stuff at this point.

Two more things.... and

Kilopascals? Bruce is getting fancy...

33 PSI = 227.52699067455592 kpa.

How many decimal points you going out to? LOL

I gotta say.. 227.52699067455592 kpa boost does sound MUCH more impressive...
