Was looking at eBay Turbo headers but the way the cross over runs I may just make my own pass side with a merge from the drivers side and go from there. I am more the willing to see how long the bottom end hold up with decent forged slugs and really good flowing heads on 15# of boost lol. A wideband, a modded 750dp. And the biggest expense will be an MSD 6AL2 box. I know from digging through some past posts on here that not everyone agrees, but making 600+whp with 8.5comp, real good heads, and 15psi or less is not rocket science. Making it live, and the parts behind it live may be a different story lol, but I will fix and upgrade as its needed.
my twin turbo iroc was built after the grenade thread , all stock stuff pushing 23 psi of boost with an added nitrous shot ontop of it never an issue, infact ill be re regeristing that car end of this week now that the weather i s getting nicer , and ill drive it with that engine in it till i finish the sb 427
i also just ordered one of the ebay gt45's for my silverado 2500 those turbos even if u have to pay the full price of 300 bucks a unit are outstanding turbochargers and have been proven to be dead reliable
dont matter what u put the turbo on wether its a stock engine or a fully built engine, tune it right and the thing will last forever
