Awsome build. Strange not seeing a whipple poking out of the engine bay of your car.

We are down to the wire now. Finishing the final bits and installing the fuel pump controller plus the hood, should start it tomorrow if the shipping gods shine on us.

Well the is the 11th first start since I bought the car in 2004. As opposed to the lat build which was my first big build, this one was handled very well buy the shop. Looking forward to the tuning results.

Just got to say this thing has turned out very special. It is a close call on getting it to Fredricksburg where all can see. I was adamant I want to take it or not go. The Team at SNL sensed that and are knocking their tails off to finish the last minute details so we can do it. I am frankly overwhelmed at their determination. I offered to not take the car to let them go home and rest but they decided they would work all night if they have to. Very few times has anyone done that for me, even for money.

All that work into the whipple and now you bust out another clean great build. If ya dont mind what it run roughly for your twin turbo setup? I like how they did the piping and the power numbers. Was looking between a procharger or twin turbo setup.


Also what radiator fan setup are you running?

Fact is the Whipple couldn't hold the power. Every problem involved a machine shop fabricated fix that just got too cumbersome to deal with. Having said that, they seem to have learned a few lessons since we started. Going to the 170 mm TB and crusher intake will make the 4.0 upgrade for the COPO a winner. I don't see them making more than 1000 to the wheels though.

We don't have all the bills tallied yet. Some elements of the build were add ons to deal with the increased heat and horsepower. I would say that I was able to sell the Whipple at a good price as well as the supporting mods to come up with pretty much enough to put the Turbo together. Changing stalls, bigger fuel pump, boost controller, and Fast 102 are a few of the added cost items. To build from scratch with drivetrain, suspension, engine, and so forth would be well north of what a good C6Z would run. With the previous investment I was able to add between 12-15k to come up with the turbo setup. That is just a guess. I promised myself I would never add it all up. Radio can probably quote you a price and for the turbo kit itself I am reasonably sure it would be very competitive with other options out there.

Fundamental difference in this build and the Whipple is the amount of custom CNC work required. The turbos needed nothing but welding and so forth. very little actual machining was necessary. It took some time to assemble everything but they were able to blast right through the entire build in about three weeks. It took a few more weeks to straighten out all the mess we had made of the wiring for electric water pumps and all the other stuff we had on it. One thing about the build here is we did it so nothing except the battery, ECM, and coolant reservoir were affected.

We had our first dial in session at the track the other day and learned a few things that are going to take a week or two to sort out. Nothing major or having anything to do with the build other than just not planning properly for things like the converter, wire routing and so forth.




Not disappointed in the times at all. One of the turbos failed during the day and this last pass was on a sick turbo and a stall that was too loose to really support the car. I feel like we are going to have a really good session when we get those things straightened out in a couple of weeks.

Is the failed turbo one that sucked in some junk prior to coming to goatfest?

Thanks Thomas, I know you are no stranger to quick cars. Hopefully we get this sucker dialed in right we can put in a respectable time.

Looking for alternatives to the Precision Turbos, any suggestions would be appreciated. I'd just like to learn more about the alternatives for comparison.

After the shakedown, we detected a few things that we needed to improve to realize the full potential of the car. That includes a two step, boost controller, new stall, driver's side turbo, screws on the wheels for the slicks, and new front runners. We are hoping to get a GForce1320 modified cradle and solid bushings installed. Lot's of progress being made and hopefully we can get it together before the tracks shut down for the seasn.

New Stall


Screws for the wheels


Turbo Housing


Passenger side turbo remounted


Boost Controller






Two Step


Replaced the aftermarket radiator and changed the transmission cooler, added fan to the cooler
