Did you not have those turbos in that location on the last build or was that some other car I saw? I get the builds mixed up on here. I know you used the 20g turbos but wasn't sure if it was the full kit or custom mount.

I had the 20gs with the stock greddy manifolds hogged out.

I was hopeing to get these new turbos next to the block but they just wouldnt fit unless I ditched power steering and flipped the alternator around and put in front of the motor. Even with doing the motor plate it wasnt enough room.

VTR's car has em like that.

aesthetically, that location is awesome and really cuts down on the cold side piping. just need to be able to fab forward facing manifolds. Based on VTRs pics, actually looked very simple.

performance wise, prolly no different than SP/SFR header placement. And i'll keep telling myself that

Since you have to make custom manifolds, will the down pipes rund under them (new manifolds)? If the manifolds are built more "upwards" there may be enough room to run some 3" down pipes on each side. On the passenger side you would need an oil filter relocation kit, but that is no big deal.

Or, you are just having short pipes and no exhaust.

plenty of room for mufflers could even have them cross over so driver turbo exits passenger side and vice versa just an idea lol

This is pretty much what im doing except the downpipes are going to run on top of the manifolds. With no motor mounts in the way we have plenty of room for both. Manifolds will go low and to the turbo, downpipe will go over frame rail and motor plate across the top of the manifold and out the back. Or we might just put it out the hood.

Awesome!

That also makes more sense...to run the manifolds low and the DP's over the top. Hope to see a lot of pictures on this build.

Weve got a bunch of fab to do to get everything in the car along with mini tubing the rear.

Will have some pictures of the turbo manifolds today after we get them tacked up.

I tried looking in a couple of your other threads and didn't see this mythical motor plate you speak of. Any pics? Super stoked to see your progress.

Here is a picture from when we were still working on it. I can take some more once the manifolds are complete and the front end comes back off.

I really dont know if I am a fan of the motor plate. the mounting points on the engine are to close together to handle twisting of the engine. Not unless there is something I am not seeing to spread the load out. I would machine 3/8 off of the bellhousing put in a motor plate.

Like i said that pic is when we first started mocking up the motor plate. It has two more mouting points kind of above the alternator and PS pump that going through the plate and into the block.

The car has a mid plate too if that it what you mean.
