Anybody see this thing? It's funky. The turbos replace your mufflers in the back of the car. Sounds like it might actually work well. It's about 8 grand though. I caught the very tale end of two guys garage where they did an install. http://www.twoguysgarage.com/home/ Check it out.


Sorry everybody, I fixed the link!:crazy:

The link works... you just have to get rid of the ":smokin:" part after the URL. He just put the emoticon too close, that's all.

That design sounds very interesting... I wonder, though, if putting the turbo's that far from the headers would allow for resonant backpressure in the exhaust to mess with the boost pressure and turbo response? Typically, you want the exhaust passing through the turbo almost as soon as it exits the exhaust manifold or as close as possible. The compressibility of the air/exhaust mixture and the backpressure in such a long distance to the turbos in the rear of the car is a big concern to me...

I saw this episode on Speed. I was skeptical at first but after seeing the demo and reading the forums of vette owners who have this system...I want one. BAD.

I saw that episode too, had a nice C5 Z06 with twin turbos and it sounds sweet. I have also seen a similar setup on a late model Camaro too. The systems definitely works.

At first I was concerned about the pressure lost that one might have with the air traveling that distance, but in the past few weeks I have been definitely convinced by the STS system.

Yeah let us know, I am curious. I don't have the money for it yet, but I'm half way there, I will have to decide which power adder to get pretty soon and this looks promising.

Nice, let me know how it goes, I am really interested. And if you don't mind tell me what the final price was. Product plus labor.

Hey guys, just wanted to add my 2 cents. The STS system is great and can produce some amazing numbers. The install is not that bad. My install is here. :cheers:

Bad news... My friend took his LT1 back from the shop... Turns out hes not going to have the money for the turbos and the install so he ended up buying a vortec super...

Sorry guys! I really wished it could have went through but its not my money! :D
