Squires Turbo Systems

So I'm giving serious consideration to putting some extra air into my 6.1, and have been looking seriously at the ProCharger Midnight Edition, but I keep coming back to turbos as an option.

The last post I could find on the forum about Squires was over 3 1/2 years ago. Has anyone had any indepth, and fairly recent experience with STS?

If so, any information that can be provided will be greatly appreciated, good, bad, or indifferent.

Avoid the STS kit.

What are your overall goals?

My opinion is bias, but Stage 6 all the way! STS can't touch their kits. The power difference is huge!

Bad quality, poor design, weak turbo, etc.

The STS kit was one of the first in the game, fortunately for us there are so many other great options out there now.

Check out the custom Whipple kit SRTJAKE has for sale, can't beat the price. But If you are dead set on a turbo then go S6 or TTC.

The sts kit was poorly engineered.
That being said, Chris Bronkie was the first jeep in the 9s and did so with rear mount turbos.

Like others have asked, it depends on your end goals.

Stage 6's kit speaks for itself and has the timeslips to back it up.

Twin turbo creations kit (which is what I have) is also well made and put s jeeps in the 9s. Petersrt8 has a ttc kit on his 9.0sec jeep

Ttc is a little more involved and costs more. It s better if you want the stealth look which is what I wanted. The shop was also very close to my house so I didn't have to ship my car.

Stage 6 is a little easier on the wallet and top notch work as well. You also
Get the BOOYA!!! Opportunity when you pop the hood.
And you can harass Harrison 24/7

Can't go wrong with either one

gonna ask here, so everyone who posted, who has FIRST HAND experience with the STS kit?

i personally have a TTC kit and couldnt be happier, Stage 6 also hands down builds a good quality kit and would never say different.

we've done in house 4 vettes, many gmc suvs/trucks, F150 limited (business partners), and built a remote style on a 1st design 3.8 V6 hyundai genesis coupe (6psi made 430whp, great powerband and retarded fun to drive)

aside from juans (F150 limited) the kits were on, performed flawlessly, made big power and were overall quality pieces that did exactly what they stated.

juans F150 problem was that it wasnt fully released yet and pushed for them to send us the kit and just the wiring harness had some quirks however when they sent the new harness things were 100% as they shouldve been.

as stated the first jeep in the 9's was a remote style setup and the remote style does work. the TTC kits might as well be considered remote cause with where the turbo's sit they have the same amount of piping distance between them and theyre close to running high 8's (PeterSRT8)
