3.8 Twin turbo build!

Well I officially started my build today.. I got as far as taking the wheels, front bumper, grill, headlights, and hood off lol. After that I took the upper intake off and installed 49lbs injectors and replaced the upper intake. Pictures are going to be up at the end of the build which will hopefully be done this weekend without hitting any hiccups. Lol

get pics as you go through the build, I know its hard as you want to get it done but its well worth the time to snap pics along the way.

Re: 3.8 Twin turbo build!

Re: 3.8 Twin turbo build!

two turboes on a lil 3.8... I';d say T3's are a good choice. Good luck and keep the updates coming!

Not contesting that. I just meant that with the small displacement and limited rpm capability of the 3.8, the small t3's would spool up alot faster than if you were to try to put a set of larger turbos on there. couple t3s piped and tuned right and you should be at full boost by 3000 or 4000 rpms, depending on what your idea of full boost is going to be.

personally I cant wait to see your set-up

Ahh thats what I thought you meant. But yeah it's going to be spooling pretty darn quick. I just got both of them mounted tonight. I put some oil through them and they were spooling a little bit while it was just idling with and open downpipe. It was pretty loud lol. The only things I have left is finish the exhaust, oil lines, and then get a wideband gauge and a boost gauge

I was thinking about putting a cobra bumper so the intercooler could get more air... But I think I'm just going keep it stock so it can be a sleeper with tint all the way around.

This thread has been dead for about five years, so I'm not sure if any of those members are even around anymore. I'd suggest making a new thread
