Thanks for sharing these pics! I can't wait to see people start to make real projects out of these cars. SOOO what are the plans now that you have the whole forced induction system pulled out, eh?

i'm guessing the "baby turbos" are coming off so they can be replaced by "adult" turbos.

Oh, they're so cute and little. No wonder they spool up so quickly. One GT35R would probably make a nice daily driver replacement.

looks like it's time to go with a single GT-K 500 or 550.

Thumbs up

Very cool of you to post these pics up. I couldn't even figure out where those little guys were hiding in my engine bay.

Depends on what size twins. I think a 35R would be liveable on a high compression 3 liter.

No doubt! Now, can a 10.2:1 all aluminum direct injection engine withstand 18-20psi from a turbo like that on pump gas and stock internals? One can only hope. If so, its time to start shopping for some wider rubber. :rocks:

The stock internals can hold. Question is can the headgasket and ignition system hold up, and can the stock injectors give enough fuel for that much boost?

Saw a gembala Porsche 911 in European mag...

the tuner put 20psi boost and used thin aluminum material for gasket, they said all other material was blown of. If memory recall the puppy puts out close to 700HP.
