    a little warning

    I had a little problem with my stock cats on the STS kit. I sucked out the insides in to the turbo. Now I am attempting to get ahold of the company to let them know to warn others. But other than that the kit is super fast. I ran 150 shot wet kit of NO2 before and this kit blows it away.

    Dang. That sucks (double entendre' intended).
    Keep us posted, we run the system also.
    How many miles did your cats have on them?
    I agree about the power, it is quite nice for a bolt-on that is always there (unlike nitrous).

    the car has 84k on it. But it did destroy the internals of the turbo now its gonna cost me between 350-500 to fix it. But on a positive note I raced a guy with a vortech supercharger (5psi) with an intercooler and an aftercooler and destroyed him I was only on 5 psi. I have the spec 3+ clutch and I would recomend it to anybody grabs hard but hold good.

    What does spec 3+ clutch mean? What's the diff between that and the stock one?

    Any idea on what your afr was when the cats came apart? Usually the cats coming apart is more due to the tune than anything else. What sucks is that if your tune is off, and the cats come apart, there's only one direction for that crap to go!!

    I knew this was going to happen sooner or later. Years ago we got in a Ferrari 308 to work on. It had a turbo mounted behind the exhaust system, someone had made the kit, or someone back then was building them. The catalytic converter had self destructed and ruined the turbo.
    When the STS turbo's first came out, I use to warn people that this could happen. I think people got tired of me mentioning it... Bob

    I had the nelson tuning upgrade with a moderate tune. But right now I am talking to STS they are working with me on how to get it fixed or upgraded. I will keep everybody posted.

    Hi,

    An Excel spreadsheet for calculating turbocharger performance can be found at Lulu dot com, as a download available for the book, "High Performance Fieros." The Excel spreadsheet gives fairly accurate results (horsepower, torque, airflow, and temperature rise) if you set the input parameters (such as VE) correctly. VE is the most difficult one to get right. VE parameters for LS1, LS2, LS6, and LS7 engines are calculated in the book. Also the description of how to use the Excel spreadsheet is in the same book. This spreadsheet was set up while we were turbocharging a 3.4L engine in a Fiero, but it should work with a turbocharged LS1, LS2, LS6, or LS7. If anyone tests this Excel spreadsheet and has any comments, please let me know.

    Thanks,

    Greg Wagoner
