About a month ago I contacted STS about a kit for our trucks. I never heard back from them so I figured they were just too busy or didn't have anything in the works. Anyway, I just got off of the phone with them. They actually took the time to call me and let me know that come late August they will have a TBSS in shop with a full bolt on kit with Diablo programming soon to follow. Apparently they have seen a HUGE demand for a kit from them, so now there is a light at the end of the tunnel for the guys looking for some boost.:eek:

Thats cool. I wonder how much boost our 10.9 cast? internal motor will hold. 6-8 psi should see another 150hp or so.

We typically go 6-8PSI on LS2's, this is good news though I bet STS beats everyone to the FI game since Magnuson dropped the ball so badly ;) I'll buy one if they prove to be as good as they have on other platforms, hell that and a converter would be brutal!

STS is a good company they "lost" my gto turbo but they sent me a brand new one so i wasnt mad.:)
if they make one for the SS id buy it as long as the air filter is in a safe location. my GTO sucked up water all the time even with their "snorkel" kit it would just pull water droplets from anywhere underneath the car and out of the air if someone was in front of me on a wet day.:(
to me a AWD ss that cant drive in the rain or snow would be totally useless.

I know it's early to guesstimate how much it would cost but what's been the range for their previous kit for LS2?

Just wondering.

And way, way faster than my puny H/C plan... I sense a battle coming for who has the quickest SS on 23-mile.... :) :eek: :eek: :)

This is what I received from them today. They suggested the tuner kit at first but I expressed more interest in a complete bolton solution.

It is definitely on the radar for consideration. We may have some updated information on if and when in the next few weeks.

Where are you located? I will make sure that my rep for that area has your information.

Thanks,

with all the upgrades needed for safe operation of the 04 GTO kit it cost me about 5400 the kit itself was a little over 4000. im gonna guess the TB SS kit would run about 5-6k. hopefully for that price it would include everything needed to run safely as thier normal "tuner kits" dont that is why they are tuner kits you have to add your own fuel and tuning.

Yeah, Stage 2 parts and price are on top of Stage 1, so you have to add it.

BTW, with that $5500 quote, was that with twin turbos, or with a single?

THATS BULL CRAP :mad: ! Maybe we can get a group buy discount. Like half off!
Heh... that's almost HALF of the price I paid for my TBSS. :crazy:

Yeah, thanks but no thanks. If that price includes a forged 408 buildup then I can see it.

But, they are one off custom kits, so you pay the price to play I guess.

with all the upgrades needed I added up to around $4300 from STS, with a universal kit..how much more could installation be? $1000? if you ask me it doesn't look all that difficult for a handy car guy..not even a need for air tools (although that and a lift would make it go much quicker)
