They are super reasonably priced and a reputable company. They sell a lot on ebay. I've never heard anything bad about them. I would try to push 20lbs and 1000hp or anything but for anything under 15lbs it's perfect.

They have T3/4 kits for under 500 on there. Oil filter sandwiches help when you run the oil lines. No drilling and cheap.

Turbo is great recipe for fun. I am in the middle of a supercharger install, and a coming soon turbo install. Not together, but I could.

I'm doing a turbo 5.3 ls swap this summer. Using a t70 from cxracing at 5 or 6lbs. Should be so much fun.

I witnessed a Silverado 5.3LS ebay single turbo. That is mega power. Not pump gas, but 1000hp.

Yep. Jracing unit is upgraded for 10 psi. The turbo is probably going for about 10 too. Both vehicles matching year model. 255walbro, 310cc injectors , pump gas, and maximum road ability.

Are you familiar with OBD tools like scanmaster for pc , torque for android phones, and crome?

It is some pretty amazing stuff.

The ability to track live timing and fuel system is very good.

Yea i want to be able to turn it up when needed. I like the bigger turbo cause it will push 5psi on the street with no problem. Then on the track I'll can her up a little. The t70 seems like what the majority of the ls1 guys use.

Efi live is supposed to be the best thing ever for tuning. I've heard nothing but amazing reviews. It's big in the diesel community too. Guys with stock duramax's can pull 5-600 horses with ease with efi live tuning.
