I'm sure it can be done, but 1k rwhp through a 4l80e and an s60 is going to be tough. 1k crank I think would be a more realistic goal for a t4 setup.

1k crank is still a top 99% streetcar.

What space do you have to work with? A restrictive filter will impact performance.

I'm unsure if there is a better way, but guys used to drill a small hole in the throttle body plate to allow some extra air in, and just use the iac to find tune from there.

Being a stock bottom end ls1 I would think 550 whp would be a nice and pretty safe street setup. Will an LSA fit under the cowl?

The big change going from a S475 t6 1.32 A/R to a S480 T6 1.32A/R is really just the compressor wheel. I would guess that back pressure would actually go up slightly, given a bigger (maybe heavier?)...

A billet 7875 will bolt right up to the kit, and make 700whp. For more than that you will need a bigger turbine and a different downpipe for the larger turbine.

6262 of the two for your goals. You could run something like a 5858 or a bw s256 or s257 for that also, and it would spool faster.

The main advantage of most aftermarket castings on a boosted setup is the thicker deck, so they wont push water as easily.

performance wise, they will both flow enough to lift a 4 bolt head.

I see it advertised as 238/242 .595 .595 112lsa.

I dont really...
