So the time has come to sink our teeth into building another turbo kit. This time Scrappy Doo will get a PT8891 with journal bearings. We will be building this kit 100% in house with our great tech/fab man Jack (I can do anything) Hatler
Lethal Performance C5 Single turbo kit
Tial waste gate 60mm
Lethal Performance Turbo ratchet cam (Pending Ty's piggy bank)
AMS 1000 for boost control
Relocation of expansion tank
And all the misc items needed to make it work
Here is Scrappy getting dropped off at the shop stripped of it's ECS Novi kit which is going on another Lethal C5
So we started off by ordering the turbo. Here she is sitting by a PTE 76. PTE 8891. Twin 76 Z06 project to follow
Then we started working on fabing the drivers side header the other night and we are happy with the result and over time will we become better with each kit we are building. Here are some pics and as progress goes we will update the thread. HP goal is 1100 RWHP but maybe pushed farther

I would say yes once jigs are made and the Lethal team is happy with the product. Progress will be in full force as there are allready 5 cars to do turbo's on. TY's car C5 , Two C6 Z06's with twin 76's/Pro efi and a certain ZR1 lol. So life after the holidays will be very busy.
Very nice guys best of luck I'm looking forward for the final engine look/numbers I loved my old single setup even though it was a pain in the ***..
Relocating the radiator or moving forward ? A2A or A2W?
Any insight to where you're mounting the turbo? I guess secretly I have wanted to see a big single stuck in the factory battery location... How are you clearing the drivers side pipe? Power steering, abs relo?
Nice manifold. Will this kinda be like the kit that CrazyChris and 417 had a couple of years ago?
yup, similar, never saw a lot of footage of crazychris setup but it came out nice,i will def how a lot of video of the car in action on my youtube acct .

Best of luck Ty and Lethal Crew I'm sure we're going to see another 1000+rwhp beast.
Will it be ready for Ti and TX2K14?
Turbo mounted like this
thanks buddy! this was the exact car that I based most of the setup off of but just wanted to take it to the next level and see how fast we can make single turbo vette...We run in Mexico and our roll race events which is what my car has always been built for.
It will def be ready for 2k and ill be present for the action
