I had a STS kit on an Avalanche. I had erratic boost when I used the compressor housing as a wastegate reference. When I referenced it to the manifold it held steady. I also had the wastegate going to atmosphere and not back in to the exhaust.

Did you guys see the Hurst/BFG Turbo Camaro for $50,000.00......wow. Keep it going guys. You are making me sway from a V8 to a V6/turbo. Hurts is way off with their price.

Can you post the video without the background music? It kinda defeats the purpose of trying to hear the engine.

Yea I have had a few people ask me why I don't have a single track of music on my exhaust video, and thats exactly he reason why I didn't add music. The engine is the music

This is a long ass thread, but does anyone know if Z Madness put up pictures of the setup post-install? I just want to see how it looks in the engine bay and underneath the car.

There's lots of pictures in the thread. Also, AACS thread had a lot as well. They all look pretty similar. If you want something specific, let me know as I do have lots of pictures. From the enging bay, it just looks like a sick CAI.

What is the normal price for a Turbo kit? Obviously the 6K price tag on these is cause they are th only company making them right now.....and anyone would charge the most they copuld get for them....just smart business....But whats the normal price for a turbo kit....say onces the market gets flooded with more choices?

This was in a post back in July:

This may be do-able for less.. A place in town has a mustang turbo kit that claims its 650 hp capable for $399 shipped! If that thing made it a year it would be soo worth it! Tuning would be $550 from Trifecta (I think). Custom piping is $200 roughly. Cant really think of much else I would need.

Yea but somthing like this....you get what you pay for. So i dont wanna put somthing in my car that is cheap and possibly going to do harm. Especially since this will almost surely void the warranty.

I am Crazy to think that someone will produce a quality system for 2 to 3K?
