I think the Blue '04 regcab you are refering to is Parish8's. He post alot on LS1tech.com, but he doesnt have the STS. I believe he's running a T-76 turbo with a 75 shot.

Correct, he's running the Combination Motorsports kit :read: I think the STS is a good kit, but even though they claim that an intercooler isnt necessary, I'd probably have to find a way to rig one in :crazy: Or maybe Alcohol injection

Parish also has a built 4l80e, 6.0, and a HD transfer case...

Just how much lag will it be. All that piping. It's bad enough using exhaust pressure. This system adds more lag coming all the way from the back. I also hate the filter mounting. Just what you need is some tire to come up and knock it off without you knowing, and then you're stuck with crappy air going in. No like!

Where do we find CM? stuff.
The STS kit is cool for a number of reasons.
There are No Oil lines
There is much cooler temps from back there.
THere is lag, but every turbo has lag,
The system is only set up for 5 psi.
It is able to get to 15 psi with proper mods.
INstall is super easy.
but it is only for the street, the location of the Air box is not quite sutable for off road.

GUys that have it, say they hit full boost by 1800 rpm, that is not much lag,
The radix does not hit full boost untill redline!!

i have a friend that is running an sts turbo on a bone stock 5.3 and he just ran a 12.8.his sts setup was sending 13lbs of boost right out of the box. i happen to like the sts setup a lot. if your looking to use it for street only, the rear mount is a LOT cooler...no intercooler needed, plus the air under there is a lot cooler and the filter is open to more air. the sts turbo also spools quickly.my friend also has the ONLY new dodge hemi in the nation with a working turbo, and its an STS. From my experience, the STS is a lot better setup than the under hood ones.

just my $0.02
