Does it really fit that bad in the bay that nobody has tried this yet? It's such a nice set-up for twin turbo, but there must be some gains n/a too I'd think.

It should save 20lbs easy. I'm going to do mine someday, but with valves. Since Ti is so light, you can have a somewhat restrained system with loud on tap when desired without weighing 60lbs. ...

I've found over the years the blower cars seem to be the least sensitive to exhaust set-ups until they are big power. They can however make similar power at lower boost with a less restrictive...

It's a pretty close match. Props to Ford for upping the game. Odd how the R doesn't put any more power to the ground of the 21 claimed more horsepower. Not like Ford at all.

I think it's still plenty robust.
I thought I just read a review that said it was less than 200lbs lighter?
Either way, lighter is better. Seems impressive with a 3.9-4.0 0-60. I like the looks....

The work that will go into that cradle, he won't make any on just 3. The jig alone will likely eat 20 hours to build right.

I picked up 65whp from a GPI VVT cam that was spec'd for my upcoming turbo build. Blown away. I don't see why 75 whp isn't possible on an n/a spec cam.
Bang for the buck is incredible.

Yeah, it's a touch lumper than I thought it might be, but I'll get idle turned up, and the turbos will likely help too. Gets lots of attention though. It stalls here and there, but that will go away...

Yep, should be a riot. Worked on a few. One has an old iron 302 making maybe 300hp, and it's so fun. I couldn't stop smiling after driving it. Been on my brain ever since.

They are bumper support replacements. Lightweight, and better airflow in the front for cooling, etc. These Ti ones weigh just over 1 lb each....:biggrin:
