Re: Twin turbo kit for camaro or firebird!

thats a pretty wicked looking set up man! for a twin turbo with an intercooler, 990 bucks isnt bad. how much hp does it say it will add? a procharger will almost double horsepower but it costs like 3,500 bucks! i love the way turbos sound, but u will most likely need to change the cam and stuff by putting that on to get the most out of it. and thats another $400 at least! not bad tho.

Re: Twin turbo kit for camaro or firebird!

turbos will be through the hood, so you'd have to cut holes in the hood without a doubt, i'd pass on it. no where near complete.

Re: Twin turbo kit for camaro or firebird!

Not to mention the made in taiwan junk parts.

Not necessarily in this order, but expect to have the following happen causing damage to your engine and or requiring you to replace the items in the kit.

1. Headers to crack, they are made as cheap as possible and will not last.

2. The turbos to seize up or just flat out frag

3. The wastegates to get stuck open or closed, one possibly costing you an engine.

4. The Bov to get stuck open, or not open, the latter causing #2 above.

Re: Twin turbo kit for camaro or firebird!

I have so many people say that you get what you pay for. If you were to buy a decent kit like this it would cost at least five grand if not more. If you do buy this kit and last a year I would be suprised. If this were me I would not buy this. Save your time and money. Its made with cheap parts that break to easily.

and u know this how? have u ever used this stuff, or u just going by what u read on the internet and heard from other ppl

those turbos are good for about 450 hp each,and as long as u break them in,and have proper oil feed and drains u wont have issues
the inter cooler is really to small for the kit
and like the other guys said the turbos will be threw the hood ,those headers would be for something liek a full size blazer or pickup truck etc
the wastegates work just fine unless ur an idiot and try to grease or oil the valve stems on them
and the blowoff valves work just fine .

the boost controller s on the other hand are known to cause bad boost spikes, get urself a turboxs mbc instead there 50$'s
