In your experience with turbo LS1 cars, which setup is better for the daily driven race on the weekend cars. The Rear mounted turbo, or the front mounted turbo??
Thanks,
-Sean

Front mounted turbo's benefit more from exhaust heat energy. They tend to spool faster and make more power, Generally. The only upside to rear mount is ease of install. Both make boost and both can serve daily driven or race car purposes. In my opinion the front mounted setup is better.

Any difference in price? Could Solid-Tech Fab a front mount kit for the price of an STS kit ($3,995) or cheaper? Thanks for the help, +rep man.

We can not match an STS price. I wish we could. Cost of parts is more than the STS kit lol. If price is what you are looking for go ahead and get the STS kit it does work and works great for what it is designed for.



We are planning on a ride along day this summer. Also throwing around soem way to do a customer appreciation day where I will be letting customers drive the cars.

Sean,
Why is my car slower that Seans, no wait - Shawn, no wait - the white Camaro, I meant the Sean with the White Camaro. The one that is turbo charged. No, not that one, the one from Solid Tech. Oh Hell Just forget it. Who the hell really knows what is going on around here?

Of course I'm going for price lol, who isn't?

Alright then maybe a rough estimate if I provide the Turbo, wastegate, intercooler, and header flanges. All i would need is the headers fabbed, downpipe fabbed, coldside fabbed and a tune. Oh and oil drain and feed lines. i can't weld or i would do the shit myself lol. You can give me a really rough estimate too I know its's hard doing this over the web lol.
