Absolutely, I love doing suspension mods. The car handles very nicely

Thanks. Im not too worried about it since I have another car for backup whenever I need to build it. I was even telling Ron to push it a little harder (timing wise) We squeezed some more power out of it since the original posting. If I had to guess what it would put down on a dynojet now id say 430wtq 440whp but who knows lol

I was looking at a stock location turbo like the Dom 1.5 or so but this is a nice option for a rotated setup without going too big on the turbo for a daily driver with a nice powerband that comes alive early.
The Tigwerks stuff looks great as well, I'll have to talk to them about the parts they offer.
Yeah im very curious how the gtx3067 would work out, I think it would do nicely. Id predict that it would show almost identical spool on the dyno with higher peak tq, but on the road it would still obviously fell more sluggish. I took along time debating between the gtx3071 and the gtx2867 about 8 months ago before the 3067 was even out, but I can say im happy with my decision.

and where were the ceramic wheel bearings made? EDIT NVM, saw it in thread... maybe i'll get some made for my z06

I would say put the BPV back in and use WOT shift... much better option
EVAP was deleted for more WHP obviously haha jk, really just because I was looking for pointless weight to remove all over (without having to gut the inside at all) and it cleans up the engine bay and the back of the car a little bit. I spent months just cleaning the underside of my car all over along with replacing every bushing, mount, and suspension piece possible. When I took my car to my friends dealer for inspection they were all in shock of how immaculate, clean, and racecar the underside looked on the lift

I keep the car looking stock inside and out to the average eye thoe (except for the bay of course). It makes it so much fun to surprise people on the track
