    Turbo

    Hi guys i am planing on doing a front mount turbo set up on my 02 camaro. The mods i have on the car as of now is cam the specs are 232/234 .595/.598 lsa 112, also have the hardened push rods, new maf long tube headers and true dual exhaust. here is the link to the turbo kit i am planing to buy http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/97-02...mZ190314241138

    I have heard good thing's about those manifold's for a single turbo setup...
    the only bad thing I have heard is if you don't built a bracket to help support the turbo the manifold can crack at the turbo flange..

    and at 7psi your gonna need to upgrade your fuel system and get a good tune on it...

    are you running a stock bottom end?

    I would look at what it could make with that cam and a turbo setup..

    from what I have read and seen the stock ls1/6 rod's are only good for about 525rwhp.. any more than that and your taking a chance on blowing the engine...
    just some food for thought...

    @ 7 psi you'r edoing to make more than 500rwhp if you're at 400 now...

    blow off valve, boost controller, new fuel injectors and pump, new spark plugs, and of corse a tune... you're going to need a different cam also cause that one isn't gonig to work well with FI...
