    BTW...I watched their vid yesterday when I got the alert and couldn't help but notice the front radiator protectors he fabricated and installed. Obviously they're behind the front bumper/fascia/inserts but I think they look GREAT!!

        Nothing wrong with OEM LT2 rods for the 495 HP, 470 package GM created for us. When folks however start to massively increase power levels, no surprise that there will be parts failure(s). Kind of like when one buys a boat rated for 1,200 pound capacity, then has ten (10) football players climb onto it, e.g., severe consequences become possible.

        GM always engineers for some additional functional capacity, such as the stock DCT being rated for 590 TQ but when those engineered limits are exceeded, at some point there will be negative outcomes.

          The engine sounds good and seems to run well, unlike Emelia's engine which always sounded like **** after she installed the turbos - her engine was doomed from the beginning.

          I wonder if with these guys you get something similar to the Lingenfelter 3 year/ 36,000 mile warranty.

            I really do like the guys that push the limits and do it responsibly. Would I do this to my C8? NO, but it's still fun to see guys/girls out there modding their cars.

              It's amazing to see all the video's of the C8 whooping all the exotics and Demons/Hellcats from dead stop to 1/4 miles. Out of the hole, the C8 can't be beat - with only 495 HP.

              But in all the "rolling starts" at 40 mph, the C8 gets whooped every time.

              I guess there is an advantage to having 200 to 300 extra HP in the exotics and the Demon!! Of course, the C8 starts at $60k !

                We wait until the Z06 kicks them all up to 120 MPH or more, rolling start or not.

                  If I remember correctly LS1 engines could go up to around 500rwhp without internal changes. Stock they produced around 315 to the wheels so that's quite a significant increase. Of course, as stock engines become more powerful, it will be more expensive to make them and their accompanying transmissions be able to handle that kind of increase though.
