it will have meth injection before i do any pulls, but i haven't made a kit yet.

i will probably stay under 8lbs, maybe up to 12 lbs if i am feeling froggy.

i will be happy with anything over 650 rwhp.

The more open your exhaust it post turbo the more efficient it is going to run and the quicker it will spool. If you have the room do go big or go home.



Would pin the throttle. :p

Werd, less back pressure the more power per psi. Just saying, jeebus

triple check your fuel connections. 40 miles after my complete rebuild, I had a large engine bay fire. wasn't even a fuel line I had unhooked.

also, fuck paying the ls1 tax.

i stick with the cheap old school shit



LS1 shit is not that bad man, especially if you are fabbing everything yourself. nice build though. The opti gets a bad rep, i had 180k on my old lt1 and went through 1 opti, the factory one that let out at 104k. setup looks killer, looking forward to more vids.

Holy crap, I just noticed that there's not an LT1 in there- saw the water pump and thought the opti was under there- so is this an L98? I see a distributor in the back of the engine.

L98 swap into a fourth Gen is ALL the rage.
