Next Gen Built Performance Single turbo build

Post by ReeseyCup » Thu Feb 07, 2019 10:42 am

Howdy everyone, I’ve only posted once here say hello and ended up back here looking up some info and figured I’d share my build.

When I got my Caprice I drove it around for about a month or so before I decided I needed to do some boost. So I contacted Next Generation Built Performance because I saw his twin turbo Caprice on Facebook. After a conversation he told me he has a single kit about to come out based on the G8 so I decided that was the route I wanted to go.
While waiting for the kit to be ready I decided the DOD needed to go and to do a turbo cam to help the build. So I asked Next Gen if they could help me out with that and dropped the car off...
They did
-Melling HVHP oil pump
- Billet timing gears with IWIS chain
- ARP headstuds with LS9 headgaskets
- LS7 lifters with new trays
- LS2 chain dampener
- Trunion upgrade
- BTR .660 platinum spring kit
- custom turbo cam (for future build)

I decided to still keep stock exhaust for now so it was kind of a sleeper at this point. The car ran strong and the cam was pretty choppy for a turbo cam. But the idle sucked gear because of the cam. So then I decided to start buying parts for the turbo kit. It’s a custom G8 kit built from Next Gen Built Performance.

So I picked up
- fast 85 injectors
- kenne bell bap
- circle D converter

So then the plan was for them to build the kit and then I was going to install it I wanted to save the money and I wanted to feel like I built some of the car lol. So I put a deposit down on the kit in July I think and waited, then waited, and waited some more. Finally got the message that the kit was ready but they needed my car to custom fit the intercooler and stuff.

So I dropped of the car and they got to work on fabbing. Once the fab was close to complete he made sure I wanted to install the kit myself and I told him I did because I didn’t want to pay for it. He came back a few minutes later and offered to install the kit minus the injectors, bap, and converter for free to be sure the figment was exact and I would be happy with everything. So as bad as I wanted to do some work myself, I can’t complain with the free labor and aim to please me.

The turbo kit includes

-Driver side Schedule 10 Stainless steel Turbo header
-Schedule 10 Stainless Steel cross over pipe ( OEM flange pass side to v band on drivers side)
-3 section 3.0" down pipe from turbo to trans tail shaft area (has 3 v band break outs for ease of install and servicing) 3.5" splits into dual 3" at trans tail shaft area for catback hook up)
-3" aluminum turbo charge pipe to intercooler
-3 to 3.5" post intercooler charge pipe( for SS factory maf housing)
-Comp Turbo Billet 76/75 T4 Turbo (Billet wheel anodized to your color choice) Ceramic coated turbine housing and a polished or powder coated compressor housing
-Tail Q50 Blow off valve( your color choice)
-Tail MV-R 44mm wastegate (your color choice)
-Massive high flow 18"x12"x4.5" intercooler
-couplers and clamps
-replacement engine mount bracket
-oil feed and return lines
-replacement washer tank
-replacement coolant reservoir
- 02 extension harness
-main power post relocation bracket
- single bar mild steel replacement bumper support

So they tuned the car so I could gently drive it home. Then my cousin was nice enough to give me a hand at his shop and we installed the circle D torque converter and bap. Then drove it to work and installed the injectors and planned on installing gauges and hooking up the loudvalve but got too busy at work and had the car towed to Next Gen so Bob could tune it.

The tuning went pretty damn well for not a ton of timing and stock cat back exhaust with the dump not even hooked up.

Is this forum a bit slow to move? I feel honored I got to park next to this car once.

It looks so good :,) I can't wait to see what kind of power it makes. Where did you move the power steering reservoir to? and was it difficult to move?
2012 Chevy Caprice- VSR80 turbo, BTR stage 2, 3.45s, camaro wheels, meth injection (racecar/ weekend car)
2007 Honda Civic SI- Sedan- intake, exhaust, Skunk2 short shifter, shift bushings (wife's daily)
2005 Chevy tahoe- Cold air intake, everything else stock! (The family car)
2000 Honda civic Hatchback- lowered, rota slip wheels. (My daily)

From my non-welder eye that exhaust looks nicely put together.

Everything else looks quite tidy, thanks for the pics.

The reservoir was moved to the passenger side up by the firewall. They moved it when installing the turbo kit so not sure how hard it was. It made 666hp at 12psi on pump gas. Can’t wait to do E85!
