How our turbo works

Just thought I share on how our turbo works being that it's twin scroll n bov is housed in the compression side. Let's just say I'm bored at work..but pretty interesting

This is pretty cool. You wonder how long before they come out with an aftermarket solution to upgrade our manifolds+turbo.

That requires more $$ than I'd like to spend on power right now. Already feel like I've got plenty for my current skill level.

I don't even want to add up on how much I spent on the car already.,and all that's left for me is an exhaust. Don't even know if it's even worth it.. 1200$ for that or spending the same amount on lowering the car? I was out of the car scene for 10 years n something keeps bringing me back to waste more money hahaha

I'm done with mine- it's plenty peppy with the Dinan stage III and Dinan free flow exhaust.
Hell it's a convertible, not a fucking Veyron

I'm sure if we spray some nos with our meth then that extra 10 horses will hit 400 hahaha but don't blame me when the motor blows

Am I missing something? It looks like it's just an improved single turbo made from better and in some cases lighter, materials and better geometries?
