Default LS1 STS Turbo Kit bought.

I 've decided to leave the miata boosted, and just turbo the Camaro.

I picked up a upgraded STS Turbo kit with intercooler, meth injection, 60LBS Injectors, 67-1 turbo, electronic boost controller, etc.

The intercooler is huge.

I can't wait for it to get here.

I talked to LG performance and they said we can push the car to 671hp with those injectors and mabe a little more with the meth injection. But I don't want just a few or one bought run. I want to daily drive it.

He said for a weekend toy he would push it to 550 rwhp. Or for daily driving 475 to the ground.

I'm going to probabaly have it tuned for 550hp, and bump the boost down.

The tranny and everything is stock, so I'll keep it in the 400's.

But since a few guys on here are stuffing LS1's in miatas's, I thought they might be intrested in the boosting side of the LS1.

I Can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And we also picked up a Powerdyne Supercharger for my brothers 97 LT1 WS6 TA, 6 Speed. It already suposed to have 375hp with the mods he has. He suposed to get a 120 -150hp jump.

The LT1 is wicked. But if you want to boost a 350 in a miata go Lsx. Anyone will tune it. We are probably going to have to stick his LT1 car on a dyno and email dyno results back and forth to a guy in Oklahoma City, to get the proper tune. Or just pull the car all the way there.

You don't have headers do you? Alot of people swear against headers on a rear mount setup. If you look up zombie in the forced inductions section of ls1tech he has alot of info of dos and don't for rear mounts. Basically stock manifolds are good and exhaust wrap is your friend. I did alot of research into it while ago in hopes of building a rear mount ls1 miata

Cool Thanks,

Yea have stock headers and Y pipe. I'm concerned about the cats though. They say leave them. I would hate for a chunk to blow through and damage the turbo.

Hahaha. I've heard horror story's of the body tweaking at 550rwhp, and a T-TOP blowing off.

The guy I bought it from had a built low end, ported heads and 602 rwhp. He said he had to put $3000 alone in the tranny.

Before we sold our Z/28 we got the trans rebuilt for $550 dollars and it was supposedly good for 500rwhp. I miss the torque of that car.

3k sounds about right for a good rebuild with cryo and stuff and a good clutch

I'm going to put a upgrade kit in it. And stay pretty basic since it is a daily.

They say it adds 3mpg. If you keep your foot out.

Thanks!
I'm going to finish tunning the T3 begi miata and sell it to finish the Camaro. I kinda hate to sell it. It is clean, mod suspension, roll bar, standalone computer, fuel pressure gauge, exaust temp gauge, motor with around 40,000 miles. The JDM motor has just been installed.

I guess I'll have to turbo my girlfriends green 1.8L miata. LOL

whoa whoa whoa....you never said anything about selling a boosted miata to fund this project in the beginning. Bad idea, burnouts and going fast in a straight line the miata.

I love it.

I've only seen 1 guy do a rear mount on a miata and from what i could read he blew his motor or something.
