Hey guys just lurking around and wanted to see what WHP and WTQ you guys are seeing on your boosted 06 Impala's? Mine is a SS and is putting down some pretty good numbers on only 5psi :)

There's a GP in toronto that recently changed hands that was putting 500+whp (cant remember the Tq) that cartuning built...
only dyno run i could find on it was 465/465 though

ACK!!! They dyno'ed you in OD :p ouch


anyway NICE setup, especially for a STS/rear mount kit. Not bad numbers either!
Now, grab some hoosier QTPs, a set of pregen (pre97) GTP 16x8 rims, and get some timeslips ;)

any specs on the turbo? they upgrade the injectors for you too?

Yeah thats what Speed Mafia was saying with 415tq tires will be need to be added.

Turbo Specs i am not sure i know they have the info on size of the turbo and such? Injectors are stock they said at 5psi the injector % was with in spec but anything more 44# will be needed? Not sure what that means but he said 5psi is max for now? I am taking it back to get different spark plugs i guess NGK TR6 somethings? Should be fun when the roads dry out up here.

Thanks for the props yeah i was very nervous and they have a video of it they are going to post the link and send it to me :)

i will share it :) I missed the dyno session so i wanted evidence they tuned my SS :) Not that i dont believe then but good for my records you know.

Very nice! I'm surprised they dyno'd you in OD as well. But impressive numbers indeed.

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?

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 :)

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

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...

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 :oops:)
- What size turbo did you/they use
- Have you invested in a trans rebuild?

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 :)
