I kiiid I kiiiid, I love turbo's! I've played with turbo's, N2O wet and dry, H/C, etc., but I've never played with or been in a centrifugal/Procharged car before. I sold my 98 turbo trans am awhile back with the intention of taking a break from cars....that didn't last long when I came across the cleanest F-Body I've ever seen in person inside and out and the price was right so I jumped on it. He has all the original documentation from the window stick and SLP order sheet, to the mods receipts with dyno graph. Current mods:
Futral F13 cam with titanium retainers, Patriot double valve springs, etc.
Pacesetter coated 1 3/4" headers
Borla catback with the bypass plate, I may add an electric cutout at some point
LS6 intake and SLP lid
new BTR 660" springs since the old springs had 20k miles on them
TA girdle for the 10 bolt
The previous owner went back to back 11.9's in the car back in 2009 or something. According to him the car always had trouble idling with the cam and surged including during the test drive. I did a complete retune of the car and she drives like stock now (minus the slushiness of the stall). My wife has no issues hopping in and driving it. I finally got it to the track a couple weeks ago and had all sorts of traction issues, but still managed an 12.1 so I feel comfortable that its solid enough for the blower to go on.
Here's a couple photo's:
I'm keeping it clean and going with black cold side piping and a black FMIC with black vacuum lines. I'll be putting a filter on the bypass valve to quiet it down a bit. Build list:
CX Racing 31x11x3 black bar and plate FMIC
Black 3" FMIC kit with black couplers
D1SC kit bought from a member on here that included the 8 rib upgrade, a 4.5" and 3.4" pulleys along with fuel pumps, bypass valve, inlet, filter, etc.
Siemens 60lb injectors
Prerequisite ATI balancer that costs a million bucks lol
I'm going to use 2 LT1 fans and make a shroud so I can keep them as "stockish" pullers cause stock fans rulle
I'm also going to fit the stock LS1 coolant crossover under the LS6 intake (not going to argue this, I think it helps and to each his own)
Let the build begin!
