    basic sts turbo kit

    Im sure there`s been some talk about the sts rear mount on here and what not. And im considering doing it for a few reasons but i have a few specific questions for my application.

    i have ls6 prc stg 2.5 heads with a tv2,bolt ons like long tube headers etc.

    If i was to get this how would my car act? Would i need another cam? etc?

    Plus what turbo comes with it? It says app specific???
    i seen a gto video dyno`d huge numbers, but it was on a 67 trim which im sure doesnt come with it:[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8oARLy37Qkw[/ame]

    On a different note real quick, i have a ls6 and with this cam its nice as my dd but is a bitch for the first 5-10 mins of driving. If i was to stroke it to a 383, what size cam would it act like compared to a 346?( if you get what im saying) and what cam would act most like my cam now, in a 383?

    thank you very much.

    As far as the sts kit on that Gto, it's sts piping with a different turbo if I'm not mistaken. That's actually my friend Rich's car. He runs Hoods Performance and is a dealer for sts. I'll have him hop on the forums when I see him (should be Saturday since he is having his annual cookout lol) and have him give you some more info about sts

    I have have the GT 67 turbo intercooled kit waiting to be put on my Camaro. It did come with 42 lb injectors but i did not get any specifications on them. Can you ask him if he has any data on the injectors they send out with the kit?
    Thanks

    42-lb injectors seem awful small for a cam/heads car with a turbo on top of that.

    Have you calculated your injector size needed based on your estimated HP?

    That was kind of my point. Most FI applications, even with mild boost, use around 60-lb injectors from what I've seen.

    You don't want to really go over 80% duty cycle.
