So after alot of going back and fourth with which turbo ls car to keep I decide the Volvo is going to stay. It's so well sorted for what it is and it doesn't feel like it's going to kill you like the Fairmont does. So next on my list is cam and springs. New turbo setup and some bigger injectors because I am currently maxed out on e85 with the 80lb injectors. Also it's getting a 6 point cage and it will be ready to so some real damage at the strip.

Thanks! I've really enjoyed it!!! It's also hilarious now when you can do 80mph rolling burnouts on the highway with the 215 tires. Haha

Cam is on the way! Hopefully next Sunday I can remove the old cam, and do a cam and valve springs in it. It will be interesting to see what cam it is, because I totally forgot which one I have.... Also picking up the turbo for it this Saturday. I'm half tempted to see if I can dyno it before the weekend for a base line run and see the improvements from just a cam and springs

Thumbs down

Yes it does, you just have to remove the radiator. On both my turbo ls cars I mounted the ic as far forward as possible just to make servicing alot easier.

Let's see if it's gonna clear the hood! Hoping it does, I measured the height from the exhaust flange to the center of the turbine shaft on both turbos and it's about 7mm taller overall and the center of the turbine shaft to the top of the compressor housing and it's about the same. It would be killer to not have to redo the hotside piping but we will see. Going with dual 44mm wastegates on the crossover this time and a exhaust cutout right behind the front wheel. Once the turbo and cam are installed it's going to a friend's shop for a 6 point cage and then back to the track. Right now with the gearing in the car it's geared for about 140mph at the top of 3rd at about 6500rpm. Last time at the track I was hitting 6900rpm so we will see. But hopefully after summer I can get some more track time with it and see what the car is capable of

I'll let you know for sure, I'm thinking about making a pass just after the cam and spring swap to see what it does.

Thats a baller turbo. The dodge d100 I did a turbo 5.3 setup in has a gtx4294r on it, he fell into a crazy deal on it after his ebay gt45 let go. Traps 130 on 15 pounds of boost at some hideous long bed american truck weight. Any reason you went with that over tried and true s400?

I basically fell into the same situation. Got a screamin deal on it. I was looking at getting into a force inductions s476r t4 but this kinda just happened. I really want to get some practice in and I would love to have this car do 140s in the 1/4. And as you can tell from my video I launched the car so soft off the line. I have a circle d tripple billet in it so I should in theory be able to do full lockup down the strip which will help too
