Default My Turbo LS1 Trans-Am build

Hi all, I'm new here, but wanted to post up my turbo build I'm currently doing for this winter. I’ve had my T/A for about a year and a half now. It’s an 01 WS6 Trans Am LS1 with a 4 speed automatic (yeah I know). She has about 62K miles on her as she sits now. I’ve always wanted to go FI with her, but thought I’d be limited to a procharger as I didn’t want a shop to do all of the work. Where is the fun in that? Well I found a company called Kentucky Turbo Performance that is one of the only current vendors to sell a turbo kit that doesn’t require too much fabrication. The kits the guy puts out are really good from what I’ve read at ls1tech. I'm planning on going with low boost and then pump it up next year when i rebuild the engine or go with a forged short block

Here is a video of what has been done so far.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ahvePLQgvpY

The kit includes the following. Talked to Josh@KYTP today, it should ship in anther two weeks.
Turbonetics TC78 Turbo
JGS wastegate
Tial BOV
FMIC
Hot and cold parts
Clamps, couplers, oil lines, etc


Well the true cost of a turbo build is in all the other crap to support it. Here is a list of the other stuff that is going in.

Finish Line Trans Level 6 transmission (installed)
Chrome Alloy Driveshaft (installed)
Comp Cam turbo grind camshaft, pushrods and springs (delivered)
Dual chain and gear (delivered)
SLP Oil pump (delivered)
Strange Dana s60 complete rear end with 3.73 gear (installed)
DMH electric cutout (delivered)
Lonnies Dual Walbro in tank fuel pumps (delivered)
60lb injectors (delivered)
160 degree thermostat (delivered)
Cobalt gauges(fuel pressure, boost/vac, trans temp) in 3 pod a piller (delivered)
AEM wideband (delivered)
Griffen Radiator (delivered)
Cone Air filter (delivered)
Misc fittings and gaskets
ARP Pro Head Studs
2bar map sensor
Blox Vacuum Manifold
ARP Rod Bolts
ARP Assembly Lube
SLP underdrive pulley
UD Pulley Belts
317 heads
6.0 GM MLS gaskets
Boost Logic T4 Turbo Blanket
Comp Trunion rocker upgrade kit









I still need to get some things.
-Underdrive pulley
-ceramic coating
-turbo blanket

Here is the stuff I did a couple weekends ago.

Rear end is in and settled perfectly. Got the built trans bolted on and have the driveshaft in. Had to modify the torque arm to fit flush with the housing on the rear end. Took the car out and she felt good. Couldn't get a good gauge as to how she drove as I left the catback off. Figure I'm taking it back off in a month anyway and I'm not going to drive it







Anyway, if you have questions, insight or want to critique my build by all means chime in. I will update the thread with how things are going. This is my first turbo build and I’ll be the first to admit I don’t know FI as well as a lot of people.

Yeah man, I really want to hear a critique from this Eagle guy. I read through his thread and I'm thinking "I'm going to run into this or that".

Looks like a great start to a build! Looks like you've got enough fuel to go big (with larger injectors )... so be careful not to push it too hard and kill the motor!

Feel free to hit me up if you have any questions and good luck!

Looks like a nice plan. That compressor side should be good for 1000hp. And the trans built right should last a while. I run the "weak" Ford AOD in my 3700#+ street car. It has held up to low 9's @ 147 with out much issue. Use the right parts the first time and save yourself money and headaches in the long run.

We have that turbo thing in common

I haven't touched the car yet... but I have to get the converter refreshed and go through the turbo. Not sure what I'll be doing exactly just yet.... depends on how much $ I want to blow on the car this year.

Yeah. it is easy to spend money for sure. Not sure if you saw my post in the 2011 upgrades thread. But I already spent a few thousand on stuff. But the game plan may include another $5K-$10K. hahaha

I need a hobby that makes me money. hahahaha

I may have seen ur post...

I don't really want to dump a retarded amount into the car this year. Last year ruined my desire to spend 15k+ on the car.

That is because you didn't run 20#+ of boost. That would have changed your mind. HAHAHAHA

Looks like the beginnings to a nice project. You seemed to have planned it out fairly well so far, not just slapping a turbo on a completely stock car with no supporting modifications.
