HA. I wish I could. It doesnt say if it fits on a bonnie, they just have it fitting on W-bodys, which is due to the FWI that is included. I would wait for someone else to try it and get all the bugs out first.

IMO, for $3k + installation I would rather get a manual trans.

yeah the manual tranny would rock, and you also gotta think that if that turbo makes the #* they claim, our trannys arent gonna hold up very well anyway, so you might be getting a new tranny either way

IMO they have the boost set too high, I would be more comfortable with 6-8lbs. 10 is pushing it.

not to mention you would need to make these engines flow alot better to get rid of the KR.

wow, interesting... that upgraded 61trim seems a bit much. you'd probably be able to take a nap before it spools. seems like it would need more fuel management as well

That would work great on the L67 cause of the low compression. I like how they use the existing blower case with the snout pulled off. I'm sure that cuts costs a little bit. You won't need a new intake manifold.

i looked on clubgp to see if anyone has bought one yet, and the general consensus was that you should get a GTP, put L36 intake manis on it (upper and lower) with an HV insert. THe GTP already has the better trans and the engine built for boost. This will help INTENSEs sales of their turbo cam.
