re:

For me it's not about the chart. It's about customer education. I really don't time to call every SINGLE TT manufacturer, press 1 for english, and then wait for 5 to 10 mins for a salesman. Plus, I don't want to be haggled by to salesman on the phone or when I ask specific questions they say "Hold on, let me ask somone". I want information presented to me clear, concise and clean. It makes my life easier which we know is the foundation of today's society. Why do you think they have car comparisons online? They WANT the consumer to know everything about the car before they make a decision. Think about it.

Like I said weeks ago, call the manufacture and see what is the latest with their kits. You cant tell me you solely buy a product based off of a chart now do you?

Jeff, any updated charts?

Also, I noticed that the IPS and Hellion kits both have a crossover pipe to connect both cold side pipes into one then route them to the intercooler. Will the smaller(one vs two like TTi) pipe be a limiting factor in making say 800-1000 hp?

I personally don't work on any cars here so the chart revisions (Or lack-there-of) was a decision based on me being the person doing the revisions and not a "Neutral" party (Which I already posted).

Since all the feed-back has been in favor of me keeping it updated and bumped I will be more than happy to do so today

I will update today

All I can say is that we will find out soon We have a LSx 427 w/9:1 Compression and CNC-ported LSx-R heads getting our "Big" turbos as we speak. Same cam that is in our single-turbo Z06 and 15-16psi should make for some nice numbers.

The only thing we are upgrading from the "Base" kit is the intercooler and a dual or triple fuel hat (Instead of the BAP). Everything is staying exactly how we have installed it prior.

I will post results once she is up and running

When you measure the inter cooler do you include the end caps or just the core?
