TT Inferno [COTW 9/26/16]
20 Attachment(s)
On 8/05/13 I purchased a 2013 IOM 2LS with 37miles on her. I am working with Tracy Lewis, from Tracy Lewis Performance, Will from Overkill Motorsports and Justin from BCS Auto on building the car around the true street class. The goal is to ultimately have the fastest street driven 5th gen 3.6L DI DOHC LFX camaro.
Will from Overkill Motorsports is known for his overkill supercharger kits within the LLT/LFX community. The only bolt on FI kit on the market for v6 guys. In addition to the centrifugal supercharger kit, he also supplies 80mm throttle bodies (stock is 72.5mm), flex fuel kit for the LFX and tuning services.
Justin is the owner of BCS Auto and he carved time out of his busy schedule to start a company that catered not just to the camaro community in general but also provided support to the v6 owners. BCS Auto is conducting R&D for various projects; LFX cams (fuel lobe), electric water pump, LLT/LFX stroker kit, etc.

JE Import Performance in Baltimore, Maryland for performance; built the first and only mid-mounted twin turbo setup for a LFX that is gravity drained (oil is teturned to the oil pan under gravity and does not require an oil scavenger pump). However, due to lack of communication, missing deadlines (multiple events such as camaro fest and camaro nationals as well as some grudge races), back burning the build (went from 2 months to 6 months) after paying for the work up front and supplying the parts, not working with me when I tried to host a camaro/muscle car event at their shop and they stopped sending images of the progress I decided to cut ties with them.

I recently dropped my car off to the shop to have them install the hood pins, clear coat the carbon fiber and convert my bowtie emblem into a flowtie.

Still working with JE on the twin turbo build......however, in the mean time I had Carrera Auto in College Park, MD install my ZL1 front conversion with a tow hook (black; stealth mode). She is a new Beast and looks badass now!

Just picked up Inferno from carrera auto with new wheels wrapped with some nitto tires.

I had them install Factory reproductions style 41 ZL wheels based off the ZL1 wheels however, in drag spec and wrap them with sticky performance tires.

Fronts - 18x8 wrapped with NT555
Rears - 18x11 wrapped with NT05R

And update on the turbo build............all the parts are in and im blocked off to drop her off August 17th. Waiting impatiently to turn on the boost

No problem. I highly recommend this setup. Its a straight bolt on and it took my shop 3.5 hours to mount, balance and align.
