I guess that's one way to get parts....

I had a buddy who need some help w/ installing a rear axle and setting up the disk brakes on his Mustang and he had a TC he was using as a parts car. He said if I helped I could get what I wanted. There wasn't a whole lot but I would up w/ another E-6, a second IHI, injectors and rail, and an LA3 ECM. I also traded a friend of his an older Lentech AOD valve body I had for a T-5 tranny he had since the one in the XR7 is on it's way out...

Now the question is do I use the IHI on my Ranger 4x4 or do I pair it w/ the other one I have, build a manifold and try the twin turbo set-up I want to do????? HMMmmmmmm..

What's the only thing better than a turbo?

Two or more turbos!
Did you hear about the Lucas powered torpedo? It sank.

Well since I can't afford a Nissan Skyline (twin turbo inline 6), or a Cossie motor for my Pseudo Coupe I figure I'd try this.

Two smaller turbos in parallel able to spool up to a given boost (as seen at the manifold) quicker as a pair, and should improve overall drivability of the car. Sure I could hang a BIG turbo on it and wait for a week while it spooled up.....

I guess it boils down to the fact that you have your car and I have mine. You build yours the way you want and I'll do mine the way I want. It's not like I said I was going to put a 350 Chevy in it or something....

Chuck, for twin turbos how about one T3 with a .63 and one IHI. Use the IHI for a quick spool to 10PSI then let the T3 carry you to 20. Best of both worlds. It would be tricky to set up the exhaust but not more than what you are already thinking about.

I've thought about the small-big combo too but I thought about using an .82(?) instead of the .63 T-3. Since I have the 2 IHI's right now I will probably go that route first to see how things will fit and such. But who knows I may aquire more turbos in the interim. I'm moving all my crap from the old house to my new one (divorce) and I'm still trying to figure out how I wound up w/ 4 2.3T motors and 3 T-5's(two need rebuilt though)! Not to mention the piles of other stuff.....
