Yeah, me too. Hard to believe that it is pulling down those times. Those 80's camaro are heavy sleds and the 5.7 version are known for not being the fastest platforms. After supercharging my C10 , I believe anything can be pretty quick with 10 psi and a BTM.

Does the meth inj keep it from detonation or add acceleration when you spray?

were using the meth injection to keep air temps down,basically chemically intercooling.for him its a saftey tool more then it is a power adder

most ppl use it to knock down air temps and increase the amount of boost and or ign advance they can run in turn making more power

he should be able to put down almost 400rwhp and 500ftlbs with this new turbo @ around 15psi, i have the old school 60-1 turbo on my car which is the same size just old school turbo tech and it is just shy of 350hp and 430ftlbs at 9 psi, the gt35 is basically an updated more efficiant design of the turbo i run

figured i should update this with a pricelist for anyone thinking about doing it

All these prices are shipped and mostly from ebay.

Turbo. $118 shipped t3/t4 hybrid
Blow off valve. $29 shipped JDM cnc
Wastgate. $37 shipped 38mm external w/8psi spring
3 Bar Map sensor. $40 shipped
2 silicon reducers. $17 shipped 4/ply
All materials for oil lines. $85 shipped
2 Turbo exhaust flanges. $32 shipped
Innercooler. 27"x7"x2.5" Intercooler $55 shipped
2 1/2 '' piping for charge pipe and exhaust. $40
Misc. Items such as 90* bends, t-fittings, argon/co2. welder wire, colder plugs $120
28Lbs GN Injectors $35 shipped
AC Delco #214-474 and Pigtail $45 shipped
Tuning equiptment from moates/G1 Kit, Burn2 $130
ALDL Cable from aldlcables.com $50

(Walbro 255LPH Fuel Pump $100)
(2800 stall converter $110)
(Exhaust heat wrap 2x100ft roll $35)
(delta camshaft 260 grind w/lifters $118)
(Ported heads myself, and gaskets, valve springs..exc) $100

Total cost without the stall converter, heat wrap, and fuel pump: $788

Total cost with the stall converter, heat wrap, fuel pump, cam/heads: $1151

so for around 1200 invested

u can take a mid 17 second car and turn it into a high 12 second car with relative ease

ill have to update that price list with the new setup which will capable of 11's but it wont be much more then what he started with since u wouldnt buy 2 diff turbos and some otf the other parts

great way to make stupid power and have a totally well mannered engine.
my advice to anyone who wants to start playing with turbos is to do it on an engine u dont care about the first time around be it a 4/6/8 cyl it dont matter.

7 out of 10 ppl will blow up there first turbo engine if they have no prior experience with them and or tuning

i used to be a huge n/a type guy then i started playing with turbos i will never build an n/a engine again with a turbo is just so easy to make power even on a bone stock engine. and its not as exspensive as everyone makes it out to be if u can do ur own fab work

Very interesting. I would like to know how well the new turbo holds out, looks like a godspeed "ebay" unit.

u are correct, and the previous turbo was also an ebay unit which held up just fine.my car ran one of thos eunits for 4 years before i upgraded to a garrett/fullrace turbo. and i have 2 ebay units on my twin turbo iroc.

ive never had a failure of one of the ebay turbos that wasnt my fault, and even at that ive only had one failure due to a kinked oil return line.

i look at the ebay turbos as a nice cheap way to get into turbocharging with the option of upgrading to a beetter unit down the road.

i would not put these on some high buck race engine though, on a mild engine or stock engine who cares if it blows up

Thats great news, I've read nothing but horror stories on people using turbo's from ebay.

Loving the thread so far....keep it comin

Do you run any kind of oil restrictor in the turbo supply line? Also, is your buddy running an adapter for the th350 trans?

5-6 years ago i would have to agree, but these days failures of these units are very rare, except int he case of user error like improper oil lines or overspeeding the turbo and having the shaft break, but they just blame the cheap turbo instead of themselves.


i will say any of the ebay turbos that are infact ball bearing stay away from, the bearings look like they belong on a skateboard wheel and most who have tried these units have had the bearings go out in very very short time

as far as updates should have a few more this week his local track may still be open next weekend so maybe he can get a few runs in before the track closes for winter
