It works for me. Car never sees over 190 with the AC ON in the Florida heat and traffic. I am certain that other radiators will Work though as long as it comparable in size

Had a lot of fun. Won some, lost some. Had a great time. I was battling some throttle body issues (car going into reduced engine power mode). Switched throttle bodies with my buddys car and let it rip.

they fit fine other than some very very minor clearance-ing on the knuckle top and bottom.

mostly roll racing as i don't want to break the stock drive train.
I am going to switch the exhaust to a bumper exit once i get the materials from work.

although I must say, the car is not that loud inside considering

that's what I was thinking when you originally built it, was that a pass bumper exit may be a sweat setup. get a little more pipe there and push it out the side. I'm sure you get a lot of sound bouncing off the ground back up at you going straight down. glad shes still working for you

s467 or S476? anything smaller than a 70mm may be too small.

You can call CxRacing and just order what you want from the kit. They will subtract whatever you don't want.

S467. 1.25ar billet wheel. I was wondering that myself. But for the price it's worth looking into spec wise

If you get it for cheap enough, run it!

I do however think it will be too small for a v8 as a single setup.

I haven't seen it in person yet, specs he sent me is......borg warner S467 pairs a 91mm OD compressor wheel and 1.25 A/r featuring twinscroll T4 housing and 4" DP...supports 94lb/min in 1.10ar configuration. capable of sustained 35psi.....


I dont know how accurate these specs are, etc, etc. but its brand new, full billet but journal bearing type. and he said I can have it in exchange for a 55 gal drum of race gas from our local supplier. so 600 bucks. its tempting seeing as I'm running a H/C/I ls1/6 atm. so I'm not certain but pretty sure that may put me in the 600whp range easily enough. open to thoughts on it though.

See if you can find a compressor map for that specific turbo and you can figure out if it will work before you buy everything.

Just bought a Turbonetics 7668 myself for the 5.3. planning it to get the motor in the car within a few weeks and then call CX for the kit minus the turbo and radiator.

my friend is giving me his stock LS7 cam, will advance 4 degrees and see how that works. Lots of guys had good success with the LS9 and it's damn near exact specs.

The main difference being the ls7 cam was designed for 1.8 rockers, I believe.
