8psi turbo launch in the Z71
This was my first turbo (STS rear mount
kit) o the truck and my first night at the strip with it. The truck would
NLOT stay on the line with that much Boost. It would simply overwhelm the brakes
and just pull forward. There was so much bouncing off the line that I could
not get beter than a 1.8 60' even in 4wd. The intake pipe would blow a band
clamp at about the 1/8th mile mark too so I couldn't finish the 1/4. Pretty
fun first night despite the problems. It eventually went 12.13@110mph with
this turbo at 13psi and 5250lb
Chevy Silverado w/ STS Turbo and Diablo Tune (in truck)
A few hours after we did the install, we my took my buddies newly turbo'd Silverado for a test drive. This was the
results. Don't mind the comment about the BOV, there was a little confusion
on the vid before this because we ran too much Boost and a coupling came loose.
