There were several guys on here with the STS systems. Some of them were making HUGE power (900+HP). Unfortunately, most of them are not very active on this site anymore.

Unfortunately Bob, some of those making "huge" power were also having 'huge' problems with their STS system (according to a number of pm's and e-mails I received). Not a knock, I'm just saying....

Lack of quality and design
I have seen several of them where either the blades broke or the seals failed causing the engine oil used to cool the bearing to leak through and that oil is now in the total exhaust flow including the return side to engine.

Remember you have to hack the car up to install this and does not help if you want to sell or return the engine back to NA.

thanks for the reply, are all the problems you have heard about just the sts systems or all turbos? just getting use to this site, and not great with a computer either?
i have heard some good things about the s&s system and bad reviews about other systems? i do not want to break my new vehicle when i have only owned for a week now? so any other info or choices i might have would be a great help? thanks frank

Re: STS TURBOS

I moved this whole thread from the C5 Z06 Forced Induction Section to the C6 Z06 Forced Induction Section as user FTF3rd has a C6 Z06 (2007).
