I say a larger single because its more efficient than twins. What brands are you looking at?

Garrett's a pretty good brand. Is it a universal kit?

No it's specifically for the Mustang GT, but are the universal kits worth looking at?

Still a pretty good deal if the kits new. If you want twins rather than single go for it.

To really use twins, don't you need a built motor? A single can push it past safe HP on a stock motor.

Still need supporting mods to be on the safe side. Also its mainly the tune you have. A good conservative tune gives power and daily driving reliability.

Better fuel system (bigger fuel pump, injectors, etc..) (more air flow=more fuel needed) full exhaust can help with smoother air flow and give you a few ponies. Turbos need suspension mods to fit but that may just be on my model check into it first. And a good tune!
To best safe its best to research research research! I been researching for a sc for 4 months and just now am about to get one.

a 67mm single is all you really need without dumping a ton of money in upgrades to support higher power levels.

I recently put a post up on the exact same topic. I'm also considering a twin turbo (Garrett Twin Turbo by Honeywell). Where is a good place to get one installed in Jersey?
