    Re: Twin Turbo Kit for V1

    I would love to see what you are doing. I have some ideas for some exhaust mods and other things but I am not a fabricator much. Plus don't have the tools in my garage for stuff like that. I work at Firewheel and drive down 78 like everyday. Let me know where you are and I can stop by.

    I just saw that LG motorsports is putting in a place over on 75 close to my parents. I love my car and want to make it a toy for years to come but she is a DD for now and needs to stay civil!

    Louis said if we can get 3-4 cars really interested that we can start planning for this build. I would prefer a little more Interest to help everybody out on cost.

    Thanks, Jason

    A build like this will take a little bit of time.

    Thanks for the interest

    Re: Twin Turbo Kit for V1

    1,300 hp? What all are you including? I'm assuming that if it's all-inclusive it will include a turbos, piping, intercooler, WGs, BOV, fuel pump(s), lines, rails, injectors, valvesprings, head studs, gaskets, oil pump/chain, pistons, rods, crank, clutch, transmission, driveshaft, diff, half-shafts, boost controller, and a reprogrammed ECU?

    Call me skeptical, but it takes, what, 35 psi to get 1,300hp out of a 5.7? (Unless it's 35 degrees out)

    Call me crazy but I'd say anything past the crank is on you.

    The kit is supplied to the end user. If they want the whole setup- turn key, that's a option, but it's not cheap. Usually, they source everything else, we just build the kit to be capable of that power.

    On a 427, with billet 62s, it takes 26 psi to make 1300 rwhp. Definitely a serious combo.

    The base kits, up to 800 rwhp, will come with or with out a fuel system upgrade and injectors. The engine can handle 650-700 all day with proper fuel and a good tune.

    Re: Twin Turbo Kit for V1

    This might be a silly question but what about a single turbo setup? I know the lag will be more pronounced but is it possible for that to happen? Just wondering.

    Right now we're focused on a twin kit because there aren't as many on the market. If all goes well a single big turbo kit wouldn't be a bad idea in the future.

    Interested as long as price is right instead of doing a custom setup

    The more people we get lined up the easier it will be to cut costs.

    What price range were y'all hoping for? Be realistic this is a bolt up twin turbo kit capable to whatever power level you have in mind.

    Re: Twin Turbo Kit for V1

    I would be looking to make V2-level power, like 600WHP so that I can retain the stock fuel system, etc., and could keep my stock 4th gen rear end. Anyway, any more than that and I don't understand how street tires could hook. The turbos could give you that and retain relatively reasonable fuel efficiency.

    As for price, if it's really a bolt-on, then you could probably stay around Maggie price-range. However, as you are a small shop without a track record, you would have to do better than that, I think.

    How are you guys thinking you could make this a true bolt-on kit?
