Put it this way...Any way you slice it you can't go wrong with the ST1 cam.

You can absolutely reach all your goals with the ST1 and then some so Don't go bigger than ST2 simply because you Don't need to.

The bigger cams are going to give you some nagging issues that you really don't want or need to deal with, like the car dieing when you turn on the AC or surging on deceleration.
(don't take my word for it, look it up on clubGP or other Wbody forums)

What are the real benefits anyway? A Lopey idle?

The only reason why I'm in a ST3 is because I got it for a hella deal. I wanted a ST2 but they were "sold out"

I just bought everything from my initial list. After I get the cam and all the valvetrain parts installed, I'll buy the turbo, wastegate, and BOV.

Alright, I added some money to the fund for this build.

I'm looking for a Precision 6262. I've opted to not get the ball bearings.

Can somebody give me a good brief explanation/justification for certain housings? I was going to get the 4bolt T3 .63A/R but only because I've seen others with it.
I also don't know anything about the different cold side housings, E cover, S cover, and anti-surge...

Also, where is the best place to buy turbos? Any website generally cheaper?

For turbos you can purchase them through ZZP or http://www.stattama.com
Not sure of any other sites because I don't normally venture past vendors that are not in the 3800 market.

Well scratch that looks like stattama is sold out.

I was kind of hoping that somebody on the board was a vendor/distributor for Precision or know somebody that is.

Call precision and ask for the racer discount. Won't likely find cheaper than that. Precision dictates the price that people can sell for. If you can find it somewhere for precisions racer price, with free shipping, that's probably as cheap as you will get.

Wow, they have really gone up in price. I bought my 6262 for 899, now it's 1075 everywhere I see.


Ported S cover will help keep it from surging. I would suggest a v-band t3. Either a .63 or .82. The new turbine wheels flow so well that there are not as much issues with back pressure as the old turbos have. The v-band outlet is 3" where as the 4 bolt outlet is 2.5", either way it will be the same T3 inlet flange. In general the smaller the turbine housing, the more responsive the turbo will be. Larger housings will allow more horsepower in theory, at the expense of spool. However my "tiny" 0.63 t3 housing seems to be working quite well and will be lots for your goals and beyond.

Why does this crank bolt have to be tightened down to 5000 ft lbs?!

I'm not having any luck with my limited tools. Electric impact didn't touch it. Three foot breaker bar didn't either.

Just keep trying!

I got it!

I used a piece of chain to hold the flex plate and a leg off of my cherry picker as a cheater bar.
