Default Vector Single Turbo Updates

Here are a couple of pictues. We expect numbers just past the 2nd week in April.

Fit and finish look excellent.

Ended up using Tial Wastegate and BOV we want the best for you guys. We hope to still keep the price close to our $6000 number.

The new Turbonetics series turbos look like they were made for this application!

We are looking to get 475 HP & 475 TQ on a stock engine. The turbo has the ability to support 575 HP to the wheels.

Nice kit, wow some room behind the turbo as well, fit looks solid. Take it this only will work with the factory manifolds? Just wanted to be 1000% sure...

if i go FI this will probably be the kit i want, looks very simmilar to the single turbo kit on the camaro5 forum. not sure what the kit was called but it used a garret40 turbo and it put down around 540 hp, while i know a supercharger can put down number like it, you cannot beat the sound that camaro made, its amazing.

i think the main reason with going turbo over supercharger is the sound OMG its amazing

LMAO at the lost picture. Random. Love it.

How will this kit tie into the factory (or aftermarket) exhaust?

CARB legal? Doubt it, but thought I'd ask.

Imports...making a 10 second pass is like coming out of the closet. You might surprise a lot of people, but in the end your still gay.

Can't forget the "LOL" or people will think you're an a**hole

Looks like I may have to take a drive up to Michigan. I drove to Buffalo to get cats and exhaust from Solo, so I might as well drive to Michigan to get this from VMS
