    Twin Turbo Progress or lack of

    After the horrible debacle of my rear mount turbo setup. I set about to correct the mistake by putting the turbos where they belong, in the engine compartment. I made good progress up to a few months ago. Other projects seem to side line work. For the last 3 weeks my health has been bad and just starting to feel normal again. On top of that one of the kids sold their house and is in process of building a new one. Which will be done in March. So I have a family of 4 moving in with me. The car is going to wait to finish until spring. Was so close to startup. Some of the parts are just setting in place, no coil pack, the radiator tube is still off. Having problems loading more pictures. Anyway a few pictures of the progress

    Wowser ! Looks fantastic Ken, and I think you made a good decision to put the turbos up front where they belong.

    PS: Are those chrome plated heat shields covering the headers and turbo mounting flanges ?

    Yes the manifolds are wrapped with lava wrap to retain heat. The chrome heat shields should help keep heat from the bottom of the hood.The extra bling doesnt hurt either.

    I shed about 200+ lbs off the car. The turbos upgraded with bigger AR housings. And a really short exhaust all in hopes of really fast spooling. For now just going to run 20lb springs in the waste gates. Later might add the two step and boost regulator if needed

    Not sure I would cover the DIS like that, but in this case, I doubt short runs would hurt. A DIS as-is will never win any beauty contest.

    Very pretty in any case.

    Very cool ken. Definitely one of a kind, I think you'll spool much sooner and have better transient response.

    Looks great, Ken! I'll have to watch my back and the Shootout!

    Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well. I hope everything gets better! Burnouts are the best cure.
