Thumbs up HorsepowerFreaks Stage 3 The Awakening - Videos and Pictures

Stage 3 has Awakened... This one with SMG! This "new" stage utilizes all of the bad to the bone components of our stage 1 & 2 turbo systems with a few "significant exceptions".... This motor has been stuffed with high strength rods, pistons, rod bolts and main bolts and assembled to meet any boost requirement we feel like setting. To create insane boost pressures while maintaining quick spool, our stage 3 is upgraded with a 74GTS dual ballbearing liquid cooled turbo. To expel the burnt gases, we included an arm swallowing 4" stainless steel exhaust complete with four titanium tips.

Here's a video of the first "Stage 3" beast.

Video......


We're going to turn the boost up to around 800rwhp, and we'll decide at that point where we're going to leave it. Below are pictures I've never shown before of a lot of HPF components.

Take care,
Chris.

very nice, was anything done to the SMG tranny to handle all this power, what do you think the limit of the SMG tranny will hold before it blows?

Beautiful job Chris, what a sleeper! Chrome wheels, black FMIC, automatic (lol).. is the driver retired too? What is that box full of O2 sensors after the downpipe? How loud is it with the wastegate dumping out to the atmosphere? Must sound awesome.

in other words it looks like its a system capable of 1000 crank hp.

The SMG and 6spd transmissions are identical with the exception of the computer controlled clutch and gear selector. However I'm sure at this amount of power the tranny has to be stressed quite a bit.

I will be honest, when I first heard the price of the kit, I thought It was over priced.

But looking at individual components and the quality of each part, I looks like its worth every pinny. It takes alot of hours and effort to design and engineer a system like this. Very nice work guys.

Thanks for the feedback everyone, and thanks for the "new" mp3 Kurt. I just updated the video to include a much more appropriate song, and increased the mix ratio at the end so you can better here the M3. I also timed the music better with the images.

Very nice Chris. Hope to upgrade soon. To everyone who hasn't seen this kit in person, It is worth every penny. Best purchase I ever made hands down.

The car comes with 4 from the factory.

I believe the kit includes a wideband so they may be adding a 5th rather then tapping an existing one. And there could also be an IGT sensor.
