LT1 F-body turbo setup

This isn't your average turbo setup for a F-body. I also understand that there are cheaper alternatives out there, but this is probably one of the top 5 LT1 turbo systems ever designed in my (bias!) opinion.

The layout was designed by me and fabricated by LT1 Boost (Jon). Everything is brand new for the most part and has only been mocked up on my 1997 SS. The turbo is used but has been sent back to Precision Turbo for inspection, verification, and new seals. The unit has zero miles since being returned and the paperwork from Precision will be included.

The layout of this turbo setup is very unique and the only system that I know of that allows the radiator to be utilized in the stock location, retention of all factory accessories, retention of front swaybar, and a downpipe that goes through the K-frame on the passengers side (zero loss of ground clearance). The only thing this kit does not allow for is the A/C. There are zero compromises other than that and the routing even allows for easy plug access. The hotside is completely stainless and properly TIG welded using backgas.

Please refer to the build thread for mock up pictures and a TON of information about this system: https://www.camaroz28.com/forums/for...-short-844583/

I'll add more details about the system over the next couple days.

Everything shown in the pictures is included with the sale.

$4500

Re: LT1 F-body turbo setup

Holy "Sugar Honey Iced tea" what size turbo and how much rwhp is the kit designed for? Is a FMIC included with this also?

Haha!

It's a Precision 76GTS turbo (76mm). You can easily make 800rw with this setup/turbo. Quite a few guys have made over 900rwhp with a 76GTS.

I do not have a FMIC. That is one of the only components that I don't have for this setup.
