Got started on first phase of getting the twin turbos installed.
This is going to take a long time and will include fuel system upgrade as well
so be patient but watch for regular updates
I will try and post LOTS of pictures for all you picture crack heads
Parts to be used:
Ceramic coated BBK shorty headers
Garret T3/T4 60-1 turbos .48/.71 AR
dual 2.5" down pipes
Twin 38mm Tial wastegates
50mm Tial BOV
Treadstone Performance TT intercooler 6 X 26 X 3.5" core.
All going on to 357ci - 351W @ 9.5-1 compression and 12psi of boost.
I've started tearing the engine back down and cleaning up some
wire routing and test fitting where things might go.
Right now I really like the idea of the turbos being mounted down low
and fairly hidden to the causal glance. It would also make fitment to the headers
a butt simple straight shot to the turbos.
They are just sitting on the sway bar right now, but will be mounted up
and slightly forward from current location. Black rubber elbow is to mock up
for turbo CAI tubing.
I will have oil return issues that I need to talk to my performance shop about though
so we'll have to see .................... they just designed a kit for the '05-'08 GT's
using low mount twins also, so I think they have a solution available for oil return.
If any of yall have had any experience with low mount turbo oil return, please feel free to chime in
