The next big step for my car is going to take place in just a couple months now and I am debating my options. I want to see what feedback yall have in regards to a few different ideas I'm currently circulating. The car is going back to Texas and will finally be tuned with 93 octane again. The guaranteed performance changes that will happen no matter which option I go with are the new tune and the install of the Meziere w/p..

Option 1: Simply retune with the 93 octane and add electric w/p. Should hopefully yield around 500-515rwhp for the time being. Continue to save money for engine build so I can finally turn the boost up on the blower (should take about 6-12 months)

Option 2: Retune with 93 octane and add w/p for same results as above for the time being. Save for about 6-12 months and buy twin 67mm turbos and sell the blower. Run the twins on the stock block at low boost for about 12 months until I have enough for a motor build, then crank up the turbos.


The reason I am considering turbos now is for their unmatched efficiency at higher boost levels (which this car will definitely see) and their amazing torque. Ultimately, I would love for this car to sit around 650rwhp with similar torque and I feel that twin 67's could make that happen more efficiently than my blower could.

A negative for the turbo route would be that it would take a year longer before I could build my motor. I figure I could get 3-4k for the ported Saleen blower which would help offset some of the costs of the turbos.

Feel free to throw any feedback my way. I would love recommendations on turbo kits, other necessary parts, etc. Trying to get an idea of costs for everything that would be needed. Thanks guys!!

i vote option 2. you have a saleen blower right? well those will only spin so much before they just start pushing hot air. twins would be a much better choice.
I do have a Saleen blower and it's ported as well. It will be making over 500rwhp at around 7psi which is quite efficient. I know this blower will have no problem making the power I want but I am trying to decide if twin turbos would be the better option. Obviously the biggest drawback is the cost of the turbo setup and I also have to find out if there are any local tuners who know turbos well enough for me to trust them.

I now realize the twin 67's would be overkill after checking out a few kits after my initial post. Looks like 57's would be the way to go. ForensicSteve, this car is mostly a street toy that will make random visits to the track whenever possible. It will never be set up primarily for the track as it will see normal street driving 95% of the time.

Anyone have recommendations for kits? Any idea on pricing? Parts? Etc? Thanks for the feedback

I would get the built engine first and see how far you can push the blower before looking at different power options.
Thats another option as well...see what the blower does with the built motor and if I am not satisfied, then switch to twins...

twins are sweet for sure but a single will be cheaper man...there are 76mm in the 8's
No doubt I could easily obtain the power results I want with a single turbo. However, if I am going to go through the trouble of switching out my blower for something else then I am definitely going twins no matter what :yes

I would rather have my ported twin-screw over a single turbo...but I would rather have twin turbos over a ported twin-screw..

I really want to see what this blower will make power-wise when cranked up...**** 500+rwhp with less than 7psi is a solid start....who knows what kind of power the car will make with 20 more cubes at 14psi :D I think it will see mid 600's without issue

Here is a dyno comparing the 3.8" pulley to my current 3.6" pulley...if you look at the boost at the bottom you will see it made these gains with less than a 1psi increase

+47rwhp
+46rwtq
