I recently upgraded from my 76mm rear-mount turbo to a bigger 88mm and a larger front-mount intercooler . The motor is a Cartek 427cid , I also installed an RPM 4L80E trans conversion . My best ET on the old 76mm with a Cartek 388cid was 9.33 at 149 ,driven to and from the track on drag radials , car is going to be tuned by Cartek soon . Here's some pics

That is some sick setup.
So to get it staight the blowoff is exiting on the four exhaust tips? and the main
exhaust is dumped into the drivers rear fender?

The wastegate is venting through the tips , turbo exhaust dumps through a 5-inch Burns stainless muffler out the drivers side rear of car .

That is one stout C5. Congratulations!!!! :thumbsup:
Those 60' times with stickies are spectacular with a Vette's IRS
What rear gear ratio you are running ?

.....If I tried to launch like that ,my rear case would probably split in half.

I spoke with Cartek a while back and they suggested I exchange my C6 rear for a C5 unit because they're a bit stronger. I really did not want to do that (too much cutting/hacking to fit it in).
I do have to say, yours looks like it handles the punishment you are giving it with those tires... :devil:

I'm waiting for the cast steel rear case to come out before I try a launch like that .:cheers:


Enjoy that beast and be safe
