Same-ish location but it will be a challenge for sure. Plus two (2) external waste-gates that need room somewhere too...
It WILL however be installed there, if it likes it or not

Git´er done Wally! That´s big boy allright.You could make a sort of Y- connection for the 2 wastegates and mount them a littel further away.As long as the angle of the pipe is in the direction of exhaust flow it will work just like a shorter connection.It will work trust me,aircraft bleed air systems have such junctions all over and there is never a problem with lack of response.

Yeah, it has monster potential anyways. Lets just hope it doesn't take 6K rpm to spool

well thats the double edge sword of big turbo's, it will come down to the flow of your engine.

The twin scroll housing will help spool up that large turbo. It´s like having 2 smaller housings that meet up shortly before the turbine wheel.Exhaust gas energy is a little faster and hotter than with a single scroll.

Coming friday 12th November I will enter a driving instruction on the Nurburgring and as its half November, it might get cold then and its a 3,5 hour drive for us.
So, I have installed heating now in the form of a B1L Eberspächer petrol heater. It works and gives off a LOT of heat!

Great news on the driving instruction. Is this the first course you've taken ?

Yes more or less: I have had instructors beside me a few times before during track days, but this will be the first time on the Nurburgring.
Its not a complete course as such, but its more like that exerienced drivers will drive in front of a small group of 3-6 cars that will change position so that everyone has driven behind the instructor car at one time.
Track is closed for normal Touristenfahrten and also closed (more importantly) for bikes.

Sounds like fun anyways! It will also be a great learning experience aswell and you will be more informed about the dangerous spots of the ring,although each car reacts differently to that aswell,but it will give you a good heads up on it.That would be course I would like to take aswell whenever my car is finished - the ring might be a museum by then

With this turbo, You'll need all You can get.

I allways say that money spent in sports-driving school and in brakes-shop are best spent. Nurburgring is tricky, even when you change speed - 10 km/h more, and that's completely another track. More bumps, asphalt change, and different way of driving. It's most challenging track in Europe, maybe even worldwide.

Go on Wally, I'm with You on this turbo. What is Your horsepower expectation?

I hear you!
BTW The new turbo is not in it yet at all; it may even take until may 2011 probably as I am buidling a 1200 Challenge turbo T1 engine, but/because thats an entirely different 'challenge' for me
The Borg-warner flows about 200 hp more then this Garrett, but i don't expect to be able to use that potential on the current engine. It would be interesting to see where its limits are though.

Tomorrow's track-instruction-day is not only just cold, but probably mostly wet as well. To describe the Ring as 'tricky' in the wet would probably be an understatement...
Lets hope we keep things in one piece.
