So I have a question

With all this pretty stuff under the hood, y'all think its worth the effort to pull the stock turbo to get color matched too? Send it to the kit supplier to break down and coat...

Could I get away with an S475/stock setup on stock injectors and a light skinny pedal?



Also, switching to a "standard" Bosch Cp3 would be good enough or would I need an exergy model...or a stroked setup...?



I'm eyeballing the SDP twin setup

I ran my lml with stock injectors and the cp4. Trans didn't like me tho lol :D

Heck as much as I drive it I could get away with it for sure!

Do the twin kit
Save some more
Then upgrade fueling
Save some more
Trans it

Be done :)

I am thinking when I get my twin hit I am going to go with a semi to flat black coating. This will give it more of a stock look. These motors just do not have the beauty of the older motors when fixed up.

Whatcha getting??

I'm on the fence still

I talked to Scott at SDP and got a price on his twin kit but I'm wondering if I should just go ahead and do the CP3 conversion first.....

All of his piping, air intake, y bridge, IC pipes, what ever you call that pipe that go in place of the ugly throttle body piece lol. Should be looking pretty close to this but in the color I'll be doing everything in

I was looking at that too, and then I saw the twin setups....and you know how that can go nono

Researching Cp3 conversion right now, and talking with Scott at SDP about his twin kit....

Trying to swing doing them both together.....or at least buying together.. As long as his pricing on the twin kit stays what he told me I'd knock the cp3 conversion out and not stress on the twin kit just yet :D

Twins would look sooo good but once I start going the performer route I won't want to stop lol.

Is SDP making a cp3 conversion now to?
