Default Bone stock to 1000hp plus UPP twin turbo build!

WELL HERE WE GO GUYS!!!

Ive Been getting parts ordered up for a few weeks now but i have most of every thing in the shop ready for install Ive built a few cars of the last 15 years ( c4, 4-c5's, a c6 and a c6z) mostly big cube nitrous or supercharged cars but never a turbo car...

CAR- 2003 Tourch Red c5 z06 - BONE STOCK

POWER ADDER- UPP- I called around to several places and wasn't getting to far until i got on the phone with UPP!!! Of course i Had several Questions.... but they were so helpful. We worked out all the details with my plans of what i needed in this project fairly quick!! Here is the Awesome part they put their entire fab department on my project due to the dead line i had of 3 weeks, They didn't even balk at the idea!!! Well They over Performed!! I paid in full on 2-2-18 and i got the tracking number for the kit on 2-8-18! Delivered 2-13-18!! Seriously unbelievable!!! Every other company gave me a 6-10 week wait period!!! Bottom line The guys are Great and said to call anytime or email for any issue during instal i may have l!! Turbos are 6182r's

Motor- LQ9 6.0 390 - Built by Grimes Machine in Atlanta Ga with all the Good stuff for up to 1000hp plus !

Clutch - Monster lt-1s (Not Here Yet)

Drivetrain - Tr6060 Trans rear swap etc

Air/Fuel- ID1300x (carlyleracing) - A&A Stg3 Fuel System (shipped) - Lingenfelter in tank - Ls3 Intake-stock Rails

Wheels / Tires - Weld s77 15x10.3 (carlyleracing) Weld alumastars 17x4 (hinson) I Powder coated the wheels gloss didn't want to look like every other wheel!! - 275 Mickey Pros

Suspension - Carlyle racing Full 15' Rear Conversion - ADJ Coil overs.

Misc - Eboost2 Controller, Lnc 2step/timing tuner, Mgw Shifter, Wolf 6point roll cage, mighty mouse front wheels spacers, Dewitts Radiator, Kooks 3 inch x pipe to mate to turbo down pipe, Rear exhaust to be determined... Need help in that area

Lets pop this car's cherry and begin the Install !! Here are a few pictures but Ill update with more as i open the box's etc and the install progress as i get the motor swapped this weekend and started on the turbo kit (2-16-18) !

Assuming they have gotten the fitment issues worked out on the c5 kits you should have a beast. A member running their kit on a 390 motor made well over 1,000 yesterday

Good luck to you! Its a ride no doubt about it.

Not sure if you have had a cam spec'd yet but Pat G did a great job on my setup.

Looks like its gonna be a monster! Grimes did the machine work on my RHS engine (before I owned the car). They are right up the street from where I live actually. We will have to meet up when the car is finished, I'd like to see this beast!
