Nice setup and numbers. I was curious as to what I’d make with my setup from him. Those cam specs are exactly what my cam is as well. That cam will drive great. With my convertor locked even at low speeds, it didn’t buck at all. You’ll enjoy how it drives.

I picked it up Thursday a d have to say, it rips. The power really comes in strong around 3k and feels like it would keep pulling to 10k if you wanted it to. Driveability is great, but the clutch already locked me out after a 1-3 pull. Haven't felt it slip per se but I'm already ordering a clutch. I'm probably doing the LT1s because I'm a fan of the oem style clutches. I just don't think any of the real aftermarket stuff can compare for driveability.

The Drivability of the MMS RPS BCII Lightened with the steel flywheel
is really close to stock. Unless you are daily driving the hills & streets
of San Francisco (LOL) you are doing your Z06 & Mamo Top End a
disservice and it would likely be the last clutch you would ever need,
they wear like Iron (ask Darth) and they are rebuildable. I had one
on my SBE to get used to it/break it in before my 396" install in my
99 C5. The revability/throttle response on my SBE was noticeable.

I have an aluminum RPS in my car and itís very similar to Stock. The car has a 7/8 tick master and itís unesessary and makes it worse. Stock hydraulics workmwell with the RPS

Just finished a Mamo build, and my clutch went within first 4o miles.
Picked up an RPS BC2, and all should be well in the clutch dept.

how's the noise with the mamo clutch? did it add any bucking or other drivability issues being that it's significantly lighter than stock? My understanding is that this is a typical trade off with lighter clutches.

Just to update this thread, the n/a power only lasted about 2 months. So I bought an A&A v3 Si and alkycontrol dual nozzle kit. Looking for 6-7psi and low 600s come Wednesday.

It's almost like it was meant to be with that cam choice lol. Now I'd sell that intake manifold and intake track and make some money back. Add another 1-2 psi to make up the power difference.

I'm hoping that by keeping the fast and 102 tb the car will still be very responsive and retain all the great things about the n/a build. Also hoping that itll help retain the awesome flat power curve it had. Plus not to sound like a loser it looks better too.

FAST and boost don't have the greatest reputation together, and with a blower you'll have PLENTY of part throttle response without the lag of some turbo setups.

Early Fasts didnt have great luck but that's changed. Hoping only 6-7 psi wont be a problem but we will see. I still have all of my stock parts should I have issues. I can only imagine the ported fast will have some power gains throughout the rpm range over an ls6.

Meh, I haven't seen any back to backs on boost when swapping intakes that proved gains, but even if there was a few hp gain that can be made up with 1 psi (typically 25-35whp) isn't worth $1000 to most people. To each their own.

yea I hear ya, I was in the boat that I already had it so it wasnt anything extra for me. I'm pushing the limits of the pistons anyways so if I can make the most power on the least amount of boost I think it's a better plan. When I do a shortblock I will likely go back to the stock ls6 intake.

If you want to make it live, you would be better served to drop that compression ratio down. As it is, I think you said you were shooting for 11.45:1. Hopefully that meth kit helps cushion everything.

Car ended up making 655rwhp/557rwtq on 7.8lbs. Tuner left it at 11.2-11.3 and only put 16 degrees of timing in it. Super happy with the car. Dont mind the boost spike at the end.
