Straight from STS. I suck at reading these things but it looks to be about 400RWHP? Looks like im about to be out 6k.

Thank you Z for getting your car on the dyno and sharing your video and report. I have just a few questions. Is this rough curve something that is typical with a turbo or is this an indicator of some remaining tuning issues?

The car sounds great by the way!

Not sure, I sent them an email waiting to discuss with them further details but from what they told me so far it's 400RWHP and just a little over 500 at the crank. Looks like a pretty sweet deal. Z do you have any warranty info? Does it void the cars engine warranty completely? Or do they have to directly relate it to the turbo system?

I'll try to hit all the answers.

The AACS car supposedly ran on 6 psi. of boost.

I have been in discussions with STS and Trifecta regarding the DYNO run and both agree that there is room for improvement. I am working with Vince on more data-logging since it appears there are some issues at the higher RPM's (5000+). STS is working on my EBC and Meth Injection and we are trying to determine what's going on this the wastegate as the boost seems a little low. I am sure we will get this system much higher but I think the best way to look at this is it does work on a very safe level. 100+ rwhp gets us slightly above a stock L99 from some of the actual numbers I've seen. And yes, the Dyno that I used is generally lower that the DynoJets. Best estimate by Dyno guys was that I would have run about 380 rwhp on a Dynojet at the same time (just estimates of course).

So, car is fine as is and can be run all day and should not present any issues as it is currently set-up. Of course, I will continue to try for more but I would say that you can safely buy the kit and get it running with some great results.

As far as warranty from GM, I have absolutely no idea about it but was impressed that you don't have to change much to get the STS kit installed. I haven't taken her in to get any service (1,100 miles so far) but when I do, I'll let everyone know what they say.

Lastly, as I don't have access to a drag strip I'll plan to get a Dashhawk for some 0-60 mph times. I went for a short cruise with a bunch of 2010's yesterday and was pleased to hear one of the V-8 guys comment that my car had some pull on the freeway (not that we were racing or anything.....).

Any more than 8psi of boost on an 11.3:1 CR non forged stock bottom end and your asking for trouble.
Ask me how I know... lol

Are you talking about the pistons? Our rods and cranks are forged.

pistons are going to be a weak point... more specifically, most likely the piston ring landing, the thin part of the piston right above the rings. The pistons are hypertheuretic (spelling?) which means they are durable/long lasting, but they are some what brittle and do not tolerate detonation well... And due to emissions the rings are placed close to the top of the piston.. so you have this thin piece of brittle metal above the rings... under normal conditions they are fine and will last a very long time... but push them to hard and throw in some detonation and you will crack a piece off the piston... and then you are in trouble... i know... been there, done that... LOL
