twin throttle bodies huh? Definitely makes running a twin turbo setup sound more interesting.yeh I kinda of knew that just needed reassurance lol, btw I planning on using a Mark VIII engine which has a twin TB so I need not worry about that, Yeh if i ever run torbos which I plan too some where down the road I definitely need a twin turbo set up not only b/c I want to run dual exhaust but I need my power in the lower rpm band b/c the Mark DOHC engine makes most of it's power up top and doesn't really have lower end power and so smaller twins is my path, but first, i have an engine to rebuild, just needed to get the basics down which I have now, thanks
Most exhaust systems use an X pipe or and H pipe tying the two sides together, which ends up doing pretty much the same thing as running a big single pipe and splitting off to duals just prior to the rear axle. Mine has a single turbo with a 3" downpipe, then it increases to 3.5" just past the starter, and splits off to dual 3" near the rear.I want to run true duels all the way to the tip as my exhaust system so won't I need to run two smaller twin turbos rather than a single large turbo? just some of the thoughts floating around my head for the future
Couldn't agree more, if you really plan on doing a boosted application, get educated first, it'll save you time, money, and frustration later on. I'll be honest, your question today alone means you definitely should do some reading on the subject. Personally, I encourage reading actual tried and true literature so you can tell what is bs out there on forums and who actually knows accurate info to share with you. A must read IMO if you are doing a custom turbo setup is Corky Bell's "Maximum Boost". Here's a pdf file for it:If your serious about doing a turbo some day, then spend some time now educating yourself. A good source of info is turbomustangs.com go there and read for a couple months.
plus a single turbo would be easier to tune than a twin turbo setup, if he's going sequential.you have alot of reserach to do. if you want a turbo under the hood do a single kit it will cost less and be easier to setup. and yes you can have dual exhaust with a single turbo
Ditto.You can have a dual exhaust with a single turbo although there will always be Y pipe with a single turbo.
Stock ford ignition should work up to 400HP last time I've hear. If you plan on going beyond 500hp, then you do...You could fit a single MP70 where the air box is you will also need to delete the ac build custom manifolds and hot side parts. Cold side plumbing, wastegate, intercooling, fuel system upgrades, possibly ignition upgrades and for big power lots more will have to be upgraded it can get spendy
Well, after a little measuring and "dummying up" under the hood, I think it is indeed possible to have two turbos under the hood here. One in the stock battery location (moving the battery to say, the trunk), and one over in the stock airbox location (obviously deleting the whole shebang in lieu of the complete turbo air intake system). Would take some creative fabbing to plumb, but it could cetainly be done. Keep in mind though I'm choosing and using the stock mopar 2.2L Turbo as my own personal dimension guidelines simply because of my familiarity of those, so YMMV for whatever aftermarket setups you may have.You could fit a single MP70 where the air box is you will also need to delete the ac build custom manifolds and hot side parts.
