My dream is becoming a reality

Some people that have been following my build thread know whats been going on but for those to haven't, here it is. I bought this car over 10 years ago now. It has been supercharged, ZE swapped, and turbocharged in the past, but I have always had this dream, which I am finally fulfilling.
My twin turbo KLZE.

Proven setup being removed.


Work commences... at my work.













First start:

Building a little boost:

Im currently stuck because I ran out of gas for my MIG while building the y-pipe, which is all I have left to do. I hope to procure more this week so that I can finish hooking up the exhaust and drive it this weekend. Vids will be posted. Tata for now.

Daily When I go for a drive, I leave life behind. Friends, work, everything. Its just me, the car, and a twisty road. The exhilaration of being on the edge of catastrophe is something that I will never be able to give up.

Other then "cool" factor why twins?

Glad you are realizing a dream but as far as technology goes twins are basically obsolete. Single turbos spool quick now and still make as much boost as you want.

Just putting this out there...Ford, BMW, Audi, Mercedes, Porsche, and McLaren seem happy to run twin turbos for whatever reason on a multitude of engines. They could all run single if they want.

Exactly (and other reasons). Not everyone wants 500hp. 300 from twins is more efficient, and provides a more usable torque curve for a daily driven car.

The plumbing to run a single in a Probe is an exercise in heat loss, poor design, inefficiency due to unequal manifold secondaries, and fitment issues.

i have to stop looking at this post and watching the vids while im at work.
walking around with a bulge in my pants around a bunch of mechanics is considered uncouth.

That is a really clean setup, reminds me of an OEM style setup. Very efficient packaging for the turbo. I imagine that rear one would be a pain to replace if it blew.

False.

Emissions mandates will make twins far more common than ever before. They are the furthest thing from obsolete, son.

Another interesting one is the LF3 in the Cadillac XTS. Very cool intercooler packaging.

Back in the day (late 90's)

Caterpillar started using twin turbo's on their diesel engines to escape having to conform to emission stuff. Kinda neat.

I worked on a project for Deere doing that... generally with the diesels it is for high high EGR when compound turbos are necessary (>30% or so)... which specifically targets NOx emissions at a cost of BSFC and all other emissions increases.

For the gasoline twins these days... it's all about catalyst light-off.

Without twin turbos and pre-turbo cats, turbos were threatened to be stamped out. They're a big heat sink and takes too long for them to light off from a cold start, so the EPA was wanting them gone. But... twin turbos to the rescue.

OP... let us get some more updates. I am anxiously awaiting more photos and info here!

well, I think we should get back on track - this is pretty much classic PT. Guy starts/finishes amazing project, and most of the comments are PTers bickering amongst each other about irrelevant drivel.
