Where Did You Hear Of thirdgen
Im planing on upgrading my car its a 89(not 92) IROC Z and i would like some help/input. im planning on replacing the engine with a 572 crate dinotuned to 809hp at 6300 and putting dual turbos. im going to put a racing clutch in it and was wondering what else would need to be done to make this work. I would like to take as many percautions to keep me from screwing my car or the 20k dollar engine up. I really want these upgrades. Any help or suggestions/ideas to better "The Beast" (the car) are wecome and greatly appreciated

Where Did You Hear Of Through an internet search.
Since you are saying that you are going to be getting 800hp out of the 572, I'm guessing that you are getting the 572R (race engine)? If you are I'm going to ge ahead and tell you that you aren't going to need a turbo/s. A friend of my dad has the 572R in his '69 Camaro race car, and it will pull the front wheels off the ground when he leaves the line, and that is straight out of the crate! So, I like to see that you've got such a great project in line, but turboing a 572 could be a little too much.
