Because I can’t afford a hellcat I got the Caprice for a fun 4 door daily. So I after I got the Caprice and drove it for a little while I noticed the motor made some small noise every time the DOD kicked in. So I decided to look into a DOD delete kit. With work being so busy and not having a garage I decided to just have Next Gen Built Performance out of Elmhurst do the work. So I dropped off the car and they got to work.
A simple cam swapped turned into
-Melling HVHP oil pump
- Billet timing gears with IWIS chain
- ARP headstuds with LS9 headgaskets
- LS7 lifters with new trays
- LS2 chain dampener
- Trunion upgrade
- BTR .660 platinum spring kit
- custom turbo cam (for future build)

I decided to still keep stock exhaust for now so it was kind of a sleeper at this point. The car ran strong and the cam was pretty choppy for a turbo cam. But the idle sucked gear because of the cam. So then I decided to start buying parts for the turbo kit. It’s a custom G8 kit built from Next Gen Built Performance.

So I picked up
- fast 85 injectors
- kenne bell bap
- circle D converter

So then the plan was for them to build the kit and then I was going to install it I wanted to save the money and I wanted to feel like I built some of the car lol. So I put a deposit down on the kit in July I think and waited, then waited, and waited some more. Finally got the message that the kit was ready but they needed my car to custom fit the intercooler and stuff.

So I dropped of the car and they got to work on fabbing. Once the fab was close to complete he made sure I wanted to install the kit myself and I told him I did because I didn’t want to pay for it. He came back a few minutes later and offered to install the kit minus the injectors, bap, and converter for free to be sure the figment was exact and I would be happy with everything. So as bad as I wanted to do some work myself, I can’t complain with the free labor and aim to please me.

The turbo kit includes

-Driver side Schedule 10 Stainless steel Turbo header
-Schedule 10 Stainless Steel cross over pipe ( OEM flange pass side to v band on drivers side)
-3 section 3.0" down pipe from turbo to trans tail shaft area (has 3 v band break outs for ease of install and servicing) 3.5" splits into dual 3" at trans tail shaft area for catback hook up)
-3" aluminum turbo charge pipe to intercooler
-3 to 3.5" post intercooler charge pipe( for SS factory maf housing)
-Comp Turbo Billet 76/75 T4 Turbo (Billet wheel anodized to your color choice) Ceramic coated turbine housing and a polished or powder coated compressor housing
-Tail Q50 Blow off valve( your color choice)
-Tail MV-R 44mm wastegate (your color choice)
-Massive high flow 18"x12"x4.5" intercooler
-couplers and clamps
-replacement engine mount bracket
-oil feed and return lines
-replacement washer tank
-replacement coolant reservoir
- 02 extension harness
-main power post relocation bracket
- single bar mild steel replacement bumper support

I still need to go pick up the car to finish with the stuff I need to do and then get it tuned. I will be switching to a squash performance fuel pump so I can get dat E85 tune, just not sure if I’m gonna do it now or spring. I’m hoping for mid 600’s and lots of fun.

And the money shots










I also had them connect the exhaust to the stock exhaust but with a loud valve for that sleeper effect.




And the sexy camera pics

This car is perfect. Just needs to black out the lower intercooler for stealth.
