    Using headers with turbos is not the best idea... The stock manifolds work a lot better... Check out all the GTO and Camaro turbo builds on ls1tech what do you see them using stock manifolds making big power. You are stepping in a different world from superchargers. Now I wouldn't run a stock exhaust. If you guys are just providing hot & cold side piping, IC, turbos the price needs to be around 5000 IMO... Look at the gto, g8 vette world upp's stepped up and built a affordable turbo kit that is under 6000 for everything you need.

    Thanks for the feedback we will keep this in mind when planning this build. I appreciate the support on stock manifolds.

    I'm interested in a kit also.. Well when I see the price that is lol. I have been planning a turbo build since I got the car but a kit would save me a lot of time.

    You are quite right, it is only proposed to be about 550ish hp...which is enough at this time as this wont be a track car until after I have a certain 2011 coupe in my hands.
    Im still excited to see what you come up with, I just wont be joining in the fun.

    Re: Twin Turbo Kit for V1

    One issue to watch out for is going to be ground clearance. Most of the TT Vs that have the turbos off of the headers have pretty sketchy ground clearance, particularly with the charge pipe coming to the front past the subframe. One possible solution that I've investigated for myself is oval piping. Spintech has good examples of piping as well as transitions. I know the laminar flow of oval piping is completely different from round pipe, but it might be an avenue to investigate.

    I would rather hear a turbo spooling and obnoxious BOV. Would the stock exhaust manifold spool faster than long tubes or is that irrelevant?

    Used Kooks are easy to sell.

    Yes, they absolutely will. Headers dissipate heat too quickly which only serves to degrade the performance of a turbo. In this case, flow takes a back seat to thermal efficiency.

    I completely. Disagree flow is absolutely more important than heat. I have headers on my car and I think it is working out just fine as it is the highest hp V1.

    If u want to make a kit ppl will want the turbos need to go in the engine bay with no electric scavenger pump to fail.

    Thats just my .02

    LS guys make 1300+ RWHP with truck manifolds all day. Turbo headers are over kill.

    I'm saying manifolds have been proven to make over 1300rwhp. There is no need for headers it's an expense you can do without. If y'all are worried about the headers you e already purchased put them for sale on here and request stock manifolds back. They'll sale within the day guaranteed.

    However we are still in the design process if the money is right and the customer is willing to work with us we will build a kit to fit what you have.
