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.

I read last night that he has a scavenge pump on it.

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:

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.

that would also be SO easy to do on an MN-12.

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.
