Yes they are i opted for the dual ball bearing Billet VS racing units. The last turbo performed very well I would assume these will do the same once i get started on the car again. As you can see from this PIC i am very close to starting on the car again probably less then 3 weeks. Acid wash and Stain is next on the agenda after I install the garage doors.

Finally finished up my garage/ Workshop I got a 2 post lift to go in but i got done so fast the concrete still isnt settled in enough to install the lift but anyhow Im rolling along its time for this twin turbo build I pretty much have everything to finish with the exception of the hot side i cannot decided if I want front mount in bumper or engine mount. Thoughts on which way to go?

Ok that is a nice looking garage.
Thank You sir, Its been a long time coming Im thankful for my other garage but it was getting a little tight in there.

Im ready to get back started on this car and see what a set of twin tuurbos can do on it. I know Y2K seems to like running them and has put together a nice setup so Im going to give it a shot as well. Im pretty sure Froush is going to be coming out the gate with a pretty nasty twin turbo car as well this year.

Im back, Garage is done gotta wait till april to install lift due to concrete not being old enough But ive decided to rock out the car anyhow.. I will be installing the engine next weekend and should have the car up and running in maybe 2-3 weeks. I went with a twin kit that is bumper mounted from on3 with my own turbos WGs and BOVS.. Ill start Posting some PICS of the new motor setup and turbo setup Late next week.

Thanks Snorky Since im waiting on a oil pickup tube i started mocking up the intercooler and turbos.. Had to move the condensor forward as well as the radiator so it toook me most of the night just to mock up the inter cooler. Tomorrow night ill finish up the intercooler install and get the headers and such installed on the motor.













And a PIC of my 19 5.0 LOL just had it cermaic coated with Gtechniq and plan on getting the 2V done soon as she gets running in a couple weeks.

tonight I got a good part of the inter cooler finished and the transmission coolers relocated to the front of the car **** is taking 10X longer then I thought. Hopefully Monday night Ill get the motor in after my pickup tube arrives. I also moddified a on3 4V coolant inlet to work with the 2V i may remodify it if I run out of **** to do this weekend.

That looks great! Are you going to run power steering?
Yes sir, I am thinking about running it through my radiator where the trans cooler used to run through. I have to research and see if the TEMP the radiator runs at is hotter or cooler then the PS system fluids normal TEMP. But it would be best for me to run it through there if I could.

That will be an interesting experiment, i have been wanting to mount the on3 power steering cooler. I just havent gotten creative enough or really taken the timeto figure how to mount it effectively. My PS fluid burns, turns black.

I got the fitting installed for the PS relocation Its coming in the transmission cooler on the radiator and making a loop just like the POS factory one. The fluid capacity will double or triple because it will have to fill up the radiator cavity as well so this has to be good for the system.





I should be installing the engine in a couple days I just have to get this small stuff taken care of first.
