Looks great and like your rims also, I have wondered what they would look like.

I was curious about the bumper components myself. Also is this the HP performance kit? Are the turbos ball bearing models? How is the driveability? how big of a hit did you take in fuel economy? Stock bottom end? If so how many mile on it and how much boost are you running? Reason I am asking so many questions is I have seen the HP kit and have become interested in it. Just wonder what all I should prep for to start with to limit drivetrain breakdowns.

Looks sweet, extremely professional. dont have any videos of it running do you?

What's up guys, we did the install and tune on Ken's car. It is an HP kit and all of the bumper supports were in place when it left (I think he took them off for the pic). The turbo's are twin 57mm's, non-ball bearing. This is the third HP kit we've done and once again it required quite a bit of modification. We ended up using a scavenge pump on the turbo's b/c of drain back issues. Right now he is running on the stock block and tranny w/ 72k miles, so we were a little conservative with the tune. Using wastegate springs only (9lb springs) we saw 6.5psi on the dyno and with 11* timing saw 497rwhp and 47xtq. Driveability is like stock and possibly quieter than when he brought it to us. I'll let Ken talk about money if he wants, but we did a little bit more than just the turbo kit...but if any of you have any questions or would like a quote on a setup like his, please feel free to PM me. Im not sure if we'll use another HP kit after this one, but we're up for any challenge and will most likely have our own custom kit out in the near future.

Thanks again Ken for your business :thumbsup:

ps--Ken, take a shot of the engine bay when you get a chance, there are no extra wires present and no visible vaccum lines, we were pretty proud of that :D

I will post more pics after this reply. As Torrey said, the install was a pain in the _____, and he explained most of the kit. The car is stock when it comes to drivetrain, but it was set up to be able to turn up the boost when all is ready. Therefore, the cost was higher than the normal install. They also upgraded the entire clutch set up. The car all in all remains roughly the same. The fuel economy and the drivability remain roughly the same. It does however come to full boost very quickly. By 3200 rpm I am seeing full boost, which is close to 9 psi under load on the street. So yes, it hits very hard. As far as prep, I did none, I wanted power now. The car is very easy to drive, and if tuned right, it should last. Of course, like anything, if you beat on it, you will pay. I drive this car everyday, so it is possible to have a daily driver 500 RWHP car that has a stock non forged bottom end, stock T-45 and 28 spline rear:eek: (although my car does have the Auburn in it, it is still 28 spline) I would recommend turbos to anyone, and I would definitely recommend MM Performance. They took there time, did it right, and kept me informed.:thumbsup:

I just wanted to thank these guys for the great job!!!! It is a very clean install, and the drivability, for what it has in it is INCREDIBLE!!!!!:thumbsup:
