  • So turbo is going on my Camaro in January.

    So told my mechanic to pick a weekend in January to help me install my turbo kit. So hopefully it goes smoothly, I’ll post pics of it of course and after that the paint will take place.

        Yeah, I’m going to get my hood and roof on my truck painted before my Camaro, it’s getting pretty bad on my truck. That way I can see if they do a good job so I can let them paint the Camaro if they do good. Only problem I see on the turbo install is the waste gate my Tial might be too big, height and wise, and I got rid of the one that came with the kit.

          Emailed the Company that sold the turbo kit, $95 to replace it so I’m getting another one.It’s set at 8 psi. So that’s good. Went ahead and got told my mechanic anytime is fine, since I have the money.

            Got the wastegate and it’s as big as my Tial , so my Tial should work. The one that first came with the kit was smaller, so emailed the company again to confirm that this will work with the kit. My mechanic also said that he won’t be able to help me until the first of the year.

              I heard back from the company they said it will work, so I’ll use my Tial wastegate and keep this one as a back up.

                Got my turbo water lines routed , so should be able to keep my heating for the car while cooling the turbo.

                    Lol. It was turboed for alittle while back in 2012 , lol had the under K setup. Before that from 2002 had the Powerdyne supercharger to about 2006. Then ran nitrous for alittle while. I’m getting there, had a few setbacks, Stroke and divorce but still going strong. If I was smart I would of got the FFF kit or the Cartunning kit.

                        Yeah have to either cut the newer metal hose and hope the silicone holds or go back to the plastic stock hose end . Since no a/c and using a ribbed pulley and shorter belt , the new metal coolant ends get in the way. But I think it’s the flowing into instead of flowing out. I’m up north in Az , so we get snow, it still gets pretty cold.

The very first vehicle means a brand new responsibility, and a new chapter of life to enjoy. There is no doubt that many people would be practically frothing at the mouth with excitement, as there is nothing quite like purchasing a new car!
                          That said, the responsibility that comes with buying a new vehicle is immense, which means...
