    Re: Twin Turbo Escalade

    The electronic boost controller, meth kit, oil pump and blow off valve are installed. The fabrication for the exhaust piping is all done and is at the welder getting welded up now and should be done on Monday. I am Hoping to drive it this week and start the tuning process. The only issue I am having so far is determining how to wire the Kenne Bell BAP, so I have to call them.

    Driver's side is done and installed. The welder won't be done until Wednesday with the passenger side so I'll put that in Wednesday night.

    Kick ASS!

    Once you start modifying them, they are never the same. Especially if you want to make that kind of power!

    But if you got the dough and time, more power to ya!!

    Re: Twin Turbo Escalade

    I was not planning on doing anything with the driveshaft or rear. I will not be running slicks so that should help. It seems the trans is the weak item with these and that is taken care of. I guess we will see, I'll do what I have to do.

    Re: Twin Turbo Escalade

    Well, it is getting close. I have been driving it for several weeeks now and logging it and workling with the tuner via email. The tune is very close now and I am going to try to meet the tuner on Friday to finalize the tune and get it dynoed. As long as that goes well, I am going to the track on Nov. 20th.
