I'm not an LS1 owner, (mod motor guy :secret: )but I think your FI tech here is excellent. Long time lurker, first time poster. Figured you'd all appreciate the pictures

Thanks again for everything to Jose@FI.

Dr Turbo and Jose were both easy to get ahold of when I ordered my TC76MPS.

Now after the sale jose was tough to to get hold of, but Dr. Turbo was easy to get ahold of here on tech and answered any question/concern I had. Excellent customer service.


Now back to the post...Awesome looking S78 and project. Keep the progress pics coming and feel free to post away at anytime. No reason to keep our ford peeps on lock down.

Jose has been pretty busy but when I haven't been able to get in touch with him DrTurbo answered all my pm's pretty quickly. Were you able to find out about the vband clamps and flanges for the compressor outlet and downpipe?

Glad you like it. The S series units so far have been un-matched in power for the size. By far the best turbos we have dealt with. The internals on them are so good they will also withstand a nuclear blast...lol.

I'm itching bad to get the truck finished and see what it'll do. I'm a little concerned about spool, but I kept my nitrous kit around just in case. :devil:

Hopefully I won't need to spray it every time. Just when I feel so inclined :jest:

What is the exhaust housing A/R on the unit? I know the production s400's are like a 1.32, when I ordered the unit over the phone I asked him for the smallest exhaust housing available, I believe it's a 1.10 or 1.08 right?

It should have the 1.1A/R on it. All mine have come with them. Looks like your truck is going to fly....lol

Probably sometime near the end of the year. Unfortunately once all the fabwork is done, which should be by the end of this month, I still have to setup the ford gt computer and harness in the truck to run the twin injectors, and just deal with what seems like an infinite number of little details on the whole thing. Once it's ready though, you'll definitely hear about it. :)
