I've been at work on this car for a few weeks now. We built headers and exhaust for this car right off the showroom floor for the customer, BEFORE the title was signed over. The customer has enjoyed the car for two years and wanted to take the next step. He jumped a mile.
My primary build goals throughout the process:
-No cutting or permanent modifications of the chassis.
-Build as an efficient setup as possible while adhering to the first goal.
58/62mm Precision Billet Vband turbos. Went with B covers in order to fit between the engine and frame "rails";
TiAL Q BOV;
TiAL MVS wastegates;
LoveFab Turbo Manifolds - places the turbos high enough for a gravity drain back into the pan;
LoveFab Twin-core Water to Air Intercooler. Only modification to the car is the upper radiator hose.
Hobbs switch, inline pump.
I am finished with fabrication and will begin the full installation today.
Pictures of some of the process:
Bulky stock motor mounts won't do:
Drivers side manifold, turbo, WG, DP/DT combo. Yep, its tight!
Early mockup stages:

I will update as the car comes together. Tuning before the weekend.
