U added some unneeded complexity with two gates, but overall it looks good.

Also from BC, by the way!
Awesome! I'm sure I'll see you out and about

sure did. I was a little paranoid about boost creep but also love the look

Well I swear I'll have an update soon. But in the spirit of being a complete madman I sold my entire ls3 top end and cam. I picked up some 317s and a pile of cash. Plan now is ls9 cam, summit dual springs and bank the rest. I figured for my goals the l92s weren't really necessary. If I make 30hp less and have a grand in the bank for a spare engine what do I care?

How does my new setup sound. Gen 4 internals, 317s, ls9 cam, summit dual springs, 7875. Hopefully will get me in the 550-600 range on 94 octane. I'm thinking about water meth now though. What do you guys think?

Beautiful car, great work and great imagination! On the power goals and meth, I think you could easily get 600wheel without meth, but I'm not sure of your static compression. Whom is going to tune it? If you said earlier and I missed it, sorry. I think I would try tuning first with just the best octane pump gas and seeing what, if any, knock activity you incur first. If the A/F ratio is the best you can get w/o knock but you still haven't reached your HP goals, then consider Meth or E85. That's just me though.

Well, she's running! Here's a quick little video overview of what I've been up to. The LS swap video I did was really popular and a lot of people liked it so I'm going to make the exact same type of video for how to turbo an LS and explain in a lot more detail why/what I did. I've just been getting killed with time lately. I know this isn't the best video but enjoy!
