Turbonetics kit looks **** good by the way! i wanted to make the statement that anyone looking to do the t-netics single turbo with after market headers should take a serious look at the Alphawerks headers. they fit **** near perfect with this ST kit. there are other headers that have given some t-netics single turbo owners some trouble. i will dyno just as soon as i can to see what this kit did for my power needs. i am hitting around 8.5-9.5psi with an a/f reading @ 10.8. my boost hits arounds 3800-4100rpm. i will try to pinpoint the exact rpm later. i will get the greddy emanage ultimate soon and get her tuned! i am hoping for 400-425hp and 380-405tq

the kit is a tight fit but a very well built and engineered kit. can be a frustrating install but very rewarding once finished. everything mates very well, even to my aftermarket headers. i had no problem hooking up the U-pipe from the header to the Y-pipe. My cusco strut bar is getting modified to fit. the flange on the MAF sits too high so the strut bar would not fit. i would suggest you have a wide variety of tools to tackle this job. lots of tight spaces to get wrenches on bolts and nuts. Patience is very important!! fuel pump modification and injectors were not difficult at all. can't go wrong with this kit, great bang for the buck! more to come, stay tuned!

btw, i paid $4400 shipped through avalon racing! [email protected] was a great help and offered superb customer service. Also i bought my gauges from forgedinternals.com. Shariff is the man! i received great prices and timely shipping. Shariff is hands down the best vendor i have dealt with, ever!!

i will do a photoshoot this weekend so i will have plenty of pics of the turbo and intercooler to post! More impressions to follow!!!

here are some for now

I think this would be the ideal turbo kit for me if and when I finally do it.

Great looking car and setup, man! :clap:

How does it feel just driving it around normally? Any problems or tricks? I'm thinking of this kit for a winter project so my beauty can come out in the spring with a full makeover. :lol:

Images of the Camaro from 'Better Off Dead' are coming to mind. Remember when he finally pulled out the beast near the end of the movie? That's what I'm talkin' about!

the car runs great. no extra creeks, squeals, ticks, etc... the car pretty much feels and sounds n/a until boost. the BOV is loud enough, definitely noticeable. my buddy's vortech makes a lot of hiss and whine noises, it is obvious that a supercharger is installed. not the case with this kit. my friend's stock Z (only t-netics kit) looks and sounds **** near stock. apart from the the blow off valve, intercooler concealed behind the black mesh and the fact that he can smoke most cars, he can easily be mistaken for a stock Z. everytime i pull my baby out of my garage i get the biggest smirk on my face! i can't help it, i love this car! lol
