428rwhp TT sleeper

Most people would say this motor looks nowhere near indimidating, but they dont know what lies beneath

Holy ****.. that would fool me if I met it on the street, providing he didn't have some fat rubber outback. Maybe seeing the rest of the car I would think it's got something - but I wouldn't expect twin turbo.

Wow

yeah, and another guy who goes by _J_ on v6p is starting a tt project with two garret t3's, which is what I had in mind for my project later on. I've also been considering a t3/t4 hybrid since my block will be built to handle something like that, but I dont know yet. Times are a changin and the v6ers are starting to get some respect

Some people will never respect V6 performance unless it has a Buick nameplate on it, or is a FWD SC car.

Those people are weird.

That motor looks great. Just one question, couldn't really tell, but how do the oil drains on the turbos work being that low? Not a critisim, just curious.

From the webpage link:

Quote:
Because the turbos are mounted so low I have to use an oil scavenge pump. Its double rubber insulated so no vibraton is transmitted through the body. The pump cost about $200, its a shurflo pump with upgraded seals to handle oil and the higher temps.

You can see the top of it in the pic above directly below the upper radiator hose close to the radiator.

Id thought about doing my setup underneath like that but with the size of turbos that I want to use I dont think it would be possible, but I think I have a good location in mind that wont be too visible.

i agree, there isn't much room and for the work and effort of putting two small turbos instead of two larger ones, i just wouldn't do it.

well he had a previous twin turbo kit utilizing two t-25's and that pushed him into the 11's on a stock motor, so Im pretty excited to see what this one will run. I believe he's still got a stock motor there, better turbo setup now. Its amazing what potential they have with twins.
