    My bad. It would be easy to find for a B-body (Caprice, Roadmaster, 1994-96 Impala SS), but I want it for my 1993 Camaro. I don't care what year LT1 Camaro it is designed for, I can work with any 1993-1997 F-body LT1 TT kit.

    i'll go with a turbo, if you have lag from launch just get a 2-step.....problem solved.
    Turbos are alongside the word effiecient in the dictionary.........
    Sure alot of the fast guys run turbos but not all of them, there are alot of bad ass procharger setups out there........centrifugals are good superchargers.
    The fastest cars are running those massive roots blowers, i've yet to see one running a turbo but there may be..........
    In the end i would go turbo.

    A turbo'd ls1 DD sounds awesome to me. Great gas milage with plenty of power when you hit the pedal.

    well, I saw the prices and converted it.............at 8000 Australian, it would be 6600 dollars.....for a twin turbo f-body kit........and I did not take into consideration the 10% that they said to take off if an international order for their taxes. It does not include everything for installation, but it sounds like a good deal to me...............I might have to consider this.........hmmmm.......

    oh my god! I love this thread I can't get enough of it but dear god I couldn't get through all of it tonight so I had to quit half way through so I'm sorry if I'm reapeating something thats already been covered.
    But I'm at the point now where I'll probably be thinking about FI in about two years. So I'm starting to get rid of the primary mods first. However, I'm just about to put FULL exhaust on my car all the parts are in so theres no going back now. I don't know if I just wasted my time. I'm thinking it will be TT but I need to know a few things
    1- I'm a total newb at FI can a regular guy like me learn everything i need to know in a couple years and be completely safe running TT without blowing up my engine?
    2- How much would it cost after EVERYTHING to put on TT on an LS1 compared to a roots SC?
    3- I'm thinking I'll be happy at about 500rwhp, is TT overshooting? Should I just save myself the trouble and get a SC? But above all I'm looking for reliabitly/durability and driveability... so in respect to that should I just dump the cash and get TT anyway. Sorry if this pisses off some people but SC just don't seem as reliable... and more sesceptible to leaning out and what not.
    4- Is there really no way to setup TT to LT headers... because I know its a small piece of the puzzle but it will be a pain in the ass if I'm getting LT's and in two years I dump out half my exhaust because I'm putting in TT...
    5- I heard a bit of talk about h/c not really benefitting turbo'd setups, I don't see why they wouldn't. Can someone briefly tell me what a good turbo friendly h/c setup would be and how it would differ to a more aggresive N/A h/c setup?
    SORRY thats a lot of questions... please do the best you can I'm a real newb!

    im no pro, but i can tell u that you can get to 500rwhp without FI.

    also, as far as h/c combos not working with FI, its because u need a FI friendly setup. u cant ust pick a cam that gives u the highest hp then expect to slap a turbo on it.

    u can get a good FI friendly h/c combo that will still have a large N/A gain until you go FI.

    500 RWHP is a very lofty goal NA on stock cubes.................fwiw.

    Does anyone know what octane gas this test is run on........or what octane premium is in Australia? ..........What HP is possible here on premium pump gas(92 octane) with this TT setup?

    from what i see at the track when i watch the top fuels/pro mods like all of them have roots... every once inawhile i see a beast come out with a TT setup in a camaro or mustang... tear up the field.. run about the same times as the pro mods where i watch them, and the group southwest superchargers run a lil slower than some of the TT's i have seen... so they can hang with the roots till a certain point... i guess its either easier to go roots, or its just truly better idk im just going by what i see at the track

    they have a new webpage setup too
    http://www.ls1turbo.com.au/index.html

    apparently your gas is much better for turbos than ours

    US 92 octane is the same as our 98 octane, they rate it differently thats all

    fwiw= for what it's worth.........Even if it is just stroked, it is attainable, it just isn't easy. I would think anything over 400 cubes you could get their with a decent effort, unless you just throw a huge cam in there to get the peak HP.............

    slowly drifting off subject folks... 500rwhp on 402 ci full bolt ons, M6 is doable, on A4 still yes, but a bit more difficult because of more loss being stalled and being A4

    back on subject
