    Re: sts-v mods?

    anyone? Is it to early to even aske this? Im not sure....

    Can anyone or does anyone know the blower model, for example eaton m12, that these northstar's have?

    I read that they have 12psi from factory, and the stock boost gauge, which is REALLY trick, shows 15psi max..... so can we say more boost?

    How about any suspension parts or stiffer shocks parts? Drove the vehicle and it was amazingly ast, but drove a bit to soft.... also, the trans felt a bit restircted between shifts...

    good ride although im still unsure...

    Re: sts-v mods?

    I don't know the model designation of the blower, but it is an all new Eaton unit displacing 122ci with a 2.1:1 pulley ratio.

    The only mod I've heard of thus far would be a spray bar on the intercooler. I'm sure others are possible, or will be soon.

    That's what I heard, I believe in an early popular hotrodding article. You'll want to doublecheck that because for all you know I'm just some idiot on the internet.

    Re: sts-v mods?

    Hello,
    Well we are in the process of developing a new computer chip for the V-Series STS. We should have some HP & Tq figures within the next 4-6 weeks. Please let us know if there are any questions.
    Thank you,

    Re: sts-v mods?

    Hello,
    Initial testing resulted in double digit HP & TQ gains on the V-series with our new intake system! We will have additional updates soon.
    Thank you,

    Re: sts-v mods?

    Please do keep us updated. I for one will be interested in purchasing at the very least, a chip, intake, sc pulleys, and exhaust when they become available.

    Re: sts-v mods? (Updates!!)

    Hello,
    We thought we would go ahead and post some of the dyno figures for the V-Series intake system we are working on. Please note we have made an increase of 17.71 HP & 16.89 TQ!!! You will also notice there is about a 23% drive train loss for the V-Series. Figures were taken at the wheels. We will continue testing new components and developing power for a 500HP Package (at the crank). Please let us know if there are any questions.
    Thank you,

    23% driveline loss? That's hard to believe.
