Good Lord! Indeed!

Man, just when I've conviced myself that my car is fine the way it is, you go and post more photos of that monster! **** that car is going to be sweet! I hope to see it at the Motorsport show. Do you think it'll be done in time, and would you bring it?

TT Nos...

Are you sure that's enough, James?

Gives a new meaning to "Twin Turbo Z"...

Looks good, real good. Most of the TT cars I saw in Japan used separate cores and pipes from each turbo feeding them. Then on the outlet of the I/C's, they were joined to a common manifold plenum and returned to the Throttle Body/Surgetank via a single large tube.
I really like the intake manifold, looks real clean. Not a stocker, that's for sure.

Hey, run dual pipes back with bot resonator and pre-mufflers so it's real quiet...
That will suprise those V8 guys...

So my kid says...

He says, walking by while I'm looking at the photos "oh, that's an intercooler for a turbo.

next photo he says "TWIN turbos?!?!?!? Oh, man!"

so I ask him "What's that right there?" pointing to the nozzle before the TB.

"NOS?" I say 'yep!'

"Oh man, OH MAN! When can we go for a ride in THAT one?"

Only nine, and he knows....

Oh yeah, I forgot!

I remember the RS Okinawa Twin Turbo car. I don't think I ever took any photos. A Shame, you felt that car come by! And talk about "Ricer Tips"? You know those 5" tips on the cans that are popular nowadays? That's what this car had, except that was the size of the exhaust pipe under the car! Christ, it looked like they ran drainage pipe for that thing!
They had cut the radiator core support out and angled it at t 45 from one side to allow all the I/C and turbo tubing to go up front, with the radiator alaid down almost horizontal, bottom breathing like in some of the new cars. Really impressive.
I think they were running either 100 or 125mm exhaust tubing. I hae NO idea how they tucked that up into the tranny tunnel (it was a 77 Fairlady Z so it was the wide tunnel). I had a bitch of a time fitting my 36" resonator upalongside my tranny last night, without hitting the tranny crossmember.
