and
on stock engines Their product is decent and appears to be improving as time moves forward but personally I do not like the company because there complete lack of customer service

The stock 4T65E is not a strong transmission even in the HD version which come in the 04 to current SSs Im not sure if boosted06 as upgraded the trans but every impala that I know that is boosting over stock levels (04/05 SS has Supercharger boost) has invested into their trans and usually from Triple Edge Performance which specializes in the 4T65E

Boosted06SS No real updates just enjoying the car and weather when ever I can.

As for the kit, I am not sure what sixe the turbo I know STS said it is a T60 and I have not had any issues at all. As for why, I believe it was based on budget to horsepower. The STS is super simple and easy and makes great power the more I beat it up the fast it gets and it being in the back it cools down really nice and I am ready for more racing

But I am avery happy and no issues to report. what turbo are yopu running

CaStylin This is pretty nice and its cool to be one of the few turbo impalas and those are pretty nice numbers

But i do have couple of questions
- What made you want to go STS instead of a under the hood set up?
- Have you had any issues with the STS scraping? (my Front mount intercooler has hit something and or scrape more then once )
- What size turbo did you/they use
- Have you invested in a trans rebuild?

04DetroitLS if you have any extra $ lying around, buy these, get them shippd to whom ever is doing your car, have them install and retune, you'll thank me later

http://intense-racing.com/Merchant2/...Code=3800_Fuel

Y I know theres only 6 injectors, call intense, Im sure they'll sell you 8, they have better spray patterns than the 42#s, and you wot have to worry about running out of injector anytime soon , and they're only $40 more than a set of 42s (based on 6)

GMs are notorious for voltage drop, this hlps with it, not 100% it will work w/ your app, but someone @ intense will be able to tell you...

Thanks for the Kudos, not sure how the front will drive will like more boost in the future but my car has about 50k miles so i think 5psi should be good for now till i turn it up next year to 12psi

I just got off they phone with them they didnt have Over Drive on when it was tuning but they wanted to make sure on the last run it could handle a top end run but it was on the dyno for sometime

Also they had to turn off the traction control as well and said if i want to get on it hard to turn it off as it freaks out?

I like how you can hear the turbo spool up sounds sweet from the outside!
