Rebalance rotating assembly
Install whatever Turbo cams I buy
put the motor back together
Complete Transmission overhaul with new converter to match cams.

Button her up and reinstall the motor.

This should complete all my motor trans work then off to the next phase

Fab up my own exhaust from the downpipe back
Precision Ball bearing Turbos " size to be determined
Tread stone TRTT series intercooler

SUBBED!!! Can't wait to start reading the epicness that's about to unfold.
Im building and buying more then I want this time instead of building and maxing out what I have.

Its going to be a project over the winter months, I decided to break it up into 2 phases in case I change my mind on something Im not sitting here with a garage full of parts I don't want again. Also I get into a hurry every time I have to much on hand so im going to milk this since I have till spring.

This is a project thread that will happen.
38mm wastegates are cheaper and will work just fine.
If you don't have a teksid block now would be a great time for one.
This will be the first CG twin 2v kit I've read about. I was thinking of getting one myself just so I'd be able to see my turbos when you pop the hood, but my setup works to well to make a change.
You'll need to get some high load valve springs in the 120lb range also.
I was waiting on you to offer up some info!! here are the springs im currently running
PAC 2v beehive spring, 1.650 install height, 110lbs seat, 265 open.

I am pretty happy with what I hear about CG and his work which is why I decided to go with his hot side minus the exhaust part cause he just don't make it.
The turbos, wastes gates etc will be the last thing I buy cause the motor is getting 100% done first.
What size turbos do you recommend?

Don't mean to thread jack Pate but I see you're changing from I beams to H beams. What's the advantage of H compared to I beams?

The Forged I beams I have are rated at 750 the H beams I bought are rated at 900 or 1000!! I don't want to have a rod at its expected maximum capacity so I decided to upgrade them. My motor only has about 6000 miles on it.

Awesome! What kind of numbers are you expecting when it's all said and done?

So this CG Fab TT Kit mounts the snails in the engine-bay? You should put twin 62mm on it and shoot for 900whp+. What piston rings are you running currently and are you going to swap while it's torn apart.

Not really sure to be honest, but more then I currently make on E-85 I would like to see on pump gas.
I would get better valve springs. You need the seat pressure in the 120's.
You will want the smallest turbo that will support the hp you want.
These are what I use.
Turbocharger, Garrett T3/60-1 with Stage III turbine wheel and 60-1 compressor wheel, journal bearin : atpturbo.com
Thanks ill look into these, im assuming they have very little lag. The main reason I have chose twins is to eliminate Lag.

im not sure about the rings yet once I get the motor out Friday ill be taking a look at what I have an seeing what needs to be replaced. My rods arrived today, so im ready to tear aprt the motor and send it off for balancing so I can begin the reassemble.

Well at least ill be able to beat you while you were blown. lol. Good luck with the build man. Sounds like you have a pretty solid plan to put some serious power down.
Thanks Froush it'll be a nice lengthy project but one well worth it in the end.
