I have the same set up and it has been flawless.  They aren't in Ca. though unless they have relocated from Canada.  My only problem has been input shafts.  The input shaft is a weak point even on a stock ls4.


www.cartuning.ca: there are in Canada.

I'm running a air/liquid intercooler with radiator + ice box. You can see the pictures on previous page.
I know you want to help me but the turbo kit coming from cartuning.ca and they sold over 100 kits to LS4 owner's. The wastegate is always located at this place for this kit and nobody ever reported a problem.

where is your wastegate? are you going to just run those small breather/filters off your valve covers and no oil recovery tank?

If you look at the last picture you will see the wastegate at the end of the downpipe.
Do you think those breathers won't be enough?

I foresee some problems with your wastegate location depending on how much boost your running. More than likely you will get a puff of smoke coming off the throttle plus some oil eventually comming out of those filters. Your engine will have crankcase ventilation problems.

Your setup looks really nice but I would consult with some other boost minded people on just a few things. Me personally, your wastegate is a little too far away but its hard to judge from the pics. Also from the looks of the position you FPR its real close to the alt, could be some concearn.
 Boost away~~~~
BTW- are your running a air/air or air/water intercooler?

I'm using a 4t65 e hd transmission with compushift and paddle shift  system + a push button selector.
The input and output shaft have been changed.

I didnt see a pick of your chassis. What you got to hold the body together that engine looks like it could twist a body pretty easy.  Curious what you going to use for a transmission also for it?
