Solid build, keep us updated!

I'd like to see how the spool is on that thing especially with the smaller top mount to keep lag under control.

Can you use the Dom 3 without removing the TGV's?  I really would like to consider this turbo next year, but don't want to have bad cold start issues by deleting the TGV's.

From what I understand, you only need to do TGV deletes if your turbo inlet is 3". Since I bought the APS inlet (which I believe works with the stock tgv's) I decided to go with the TGV deletes only because the IM will be ripped out anyways. Didn't Sleeper run his GT52 with tgv deletes? You might have to ask him about starting in the cold.

Why didnt you go with the 3" inlet if you ended up doing the TGV deletes anyways?  Doesnt the APS turbo inlet pipe provide a 3" silicone turbo inlet adaptor?

Ya, I'll ask Sleeper about cold startup once putting a bigger turbo on my car becomes a reality.

If you are willing to come up to Cold Lake, you are more than welcome to help out.

I went with the APS because I didn't want to mess around with collapsing inlets. Yeah, the APS came with two adapters.

Sean had brand new 07 tgv's that he didn't need so I bought them and sent them off for porting. This is convienient for me because I wouldn't have any down time. The extra flow that the deletes provide can't hurt the hp/tq ratings. And like I said before, since the IM is gonna be taken off, might ass-well save time and do both mods right away.

Ya I hear ya.  If I had an extra set of TGV's I'd send 'em out to get ported too.

So why didnt you go with the 3" turbo inlet on the Dom 3?

It tapers down to 2.4" anyways after the turbo inlet cone. Plus it saves space in an already tight area.

Word!  I can't wait to see what kind of numbers your car puts down.  What's the plan for a tune?

Got a start map from PDX on the accessport. From there I'm gonna send datalogs back and have them revise the maps until the car is running somewhat stable without grenading the motor. I hope Sunny will be able to fine-tune it using street tuner when it's released, if not, he can use romraider. I'll still keep the Accessport and I'll end up getting a final tune at Rocket. My next trip back to BC will be at Christmas time, so I hope I can get on the dyno with winter tires on.  :D

It's quite the process, lol, but so far this is the easiest and safest solution i've come up with.

If you are getting tuned with Sunny, you don't need one.

Ya, my plan is to get the "race" version of my protuned map from the guy who protuned my car(Ed @ EQ Tuning), then make some changes to my setup and then get Sunny to work his stuff with the street tuner.

I'm kind of surprised he hasnt mentioned anything about this yet.

I'm really hoping that he can use the Street Tuner software so us Accessport guys don't have to sell them.

I would guess it would be like going from one operating system to another. It's not a question of can, it's having the time to learn a new system. I no Pat at Rocket tunes on all software so I'm betting there is allot of similarities.

I think the biggest difference between RR and Streetuner is the way the data is presented.  Tables are tables, but how the actual information in those tables are represented is not always the same.

sweet.. more ppl helping out with the build.. hehe.. I guess I'll be teaching a few ppl then.

I'm guessing for the complete install, it'll be the better part of a full 2 days.  Just to make sure everything is removed/installed correctly with some extra time for small hiccups along the way.  This will be the third time I've done a install similar to this one with a complete intake manifold buildup, so, I'm pretty confident in being able to complete the job on time.

but, any extra help is ALWAYS appreciated.

TGV = Tumble Generator Valve - This sits between the intake manifold and head. It has a butterfly valve that is closed during start up to "tumble" the air fuel mixture for better burn while the cats warm up. Purely an emissions thing.

I modified my own this summer. Top one is factory, bottom one is with the butterfly removed.





BCS = Boost Control Solenoid - A valve controlled by the ECU to regulate boost levels and operates in bleed mode. Prodrive, GMBCS, etc are BCS that operate in interrupt mode allowing for better spool characteristics, as well as holding higher boost (>~18psi) levels better.

Hope that helps.
