The returns on the turbos are lower than the pan. And with the crossover tube, and all the other crap in the way, it just worked out a little bit better with a pump to return the oil.

Yeah the perspective from the pics made it diffiuclt to see that. I guess you do what you got to do

your exhaust wasn't crossed over was it? That's a common problem when people leave the exhaust sides isolated. energy in the exhaust manifold (velocity, pressure, temperature) drives the turbos, if energy is the same... and the outputs are also connected (ie one throttle body)... they are going to work in tandem.

Just like in the JDM twin turbo legacy. *COUGH* like mine *COUGH*

kastle had that problem with the FAT TT design.

What numbers? The ones that haven't been posted yet, or the amount of times the car will overheat with that tiny ass radiator?

I've had my car overheat because of a small radiator so I think I can post my feelings about it. Thanks!

You're one to talk. You really stepped it up a notch and proved your point by calling someone a '***'.

Kienan, I was wondering this too...gorgeous build up and I'm waiting for the response to be something along the lines of keeping AC or not moving alternator...
probably6+ feet of piping could be removed and almost 180* bends from each pipe (less flow restriction)...

a/c was already off of the car at the time, could of been left on with this setup without that much trouble,as far as rotating the intake yes could of been done to eliminate the piping just was the way it was chose to be done,never know next alteration to it may involve that never was a power project,was more of a something different deal,car sounds great so we ll see what it does,lol it always seems to end up being a power project we all know that none of us can ever just leave it alone and have fun

I'm thinking the difference would possibly do with a potential marketable kit opposed to a one offer. As it stands now it could be in kit form. Once you rotate the intake and eliminate the AC things turn towards the more dedicated power user.... and less towards the daily driver.

yeah, that's true, but there are ways to make a marketable kit with a reverse manifold that keeps the factory bits...the manifold being the part that allows you to keep it all...you can even keep AC using a reversed stock manifold
