I love my turbos but if your supercharger kit can hold 1k whp then what is the point of switching?

If I may.....

Your "sc" choice is basically a glorified turbo set up anyway without some of the hang ups of a conventional turbo install..... No scavenger pumps..... remote feed lines.... heat issues etc..... the wow factor of turbos is fun... (one day Ill tell you about a Nasty G37 with Twins) but the daily driveability becomes questionable. you picked a direction you made everything bulletproof and over engineered .... Why give all of that away?

Just MY OPINION

Twins all the way. No belt and all the issues with slippage and tensioners.

If the goal is 1000+rwhp I would go twins all day. You can get there on pump gas and a 110% street car on relatively low boost (16-17psi).

Being able to adjust from 3-different boost settings (So the car isn't always in "Race" mode) is a nice bonus

Splash in race gas and turn up the boost into the low 20's and make 1200+rwhp or pull it back to 10psi and roll around on "Only" 700rwhp.

twin turbos.. I loved the turbo stuff back when I had my mustang..

Took me from a 300rwhp to a 600+rwhp on lower boost.. then probably tripled my motorhorsepower at 23 or so.

Therein lies the dilemma. My D1SC is maxed at 5300 rpm with belt slip and is too small anyway for this big breathing motor. I can get a custom TT setup for the same price as switching head units and upgrading the inter cooler. I just have no seat time behind a TT.

Turbos would be the max to match the engine you built every thing else will just be short of and you will be there eventually. If I had that motor it would be turbo for sure. MAX it out or you will never be satisfied it is a disease that only wants more power to push our heavy weights down the road or track and to kick that fox body Mustangs ass.

+1 I'm not in that league (1,000 whp), but I run 3 different boost settings, from 620 whp street to 760 whp by just flipping a switch, I've been driving my tt for over 3 years now, turbos have never been an issue......just make sure it's a well designed system and use good reputable brands which looks like your builder is already doing

Had to pick up my broken LS3 and aeromotive eliminator pump, speed controller, and my old LPE dual pump setup as well as a other miscellaneous odds and ends. This motor with SNL V3 cam will be built and go into my '83 K10 4x4 eventually

Anyway, Steve the owner and Dustin the lead tech talked me into a custom Twin Precision Turbo 6766 setup.

Im running the little D1sc on this big breathing HKE LSX427 with Mast LS7 6 bolt heads and its over tasked and major slip at 5300 rpm.

So my options are F1r with big race intercooler, new tubing and BOV or twin 6766 turbos custom built.

SNL will custom fabricate this system for a pretty good deal since my car has pretty much been built by these guys.

Car is almost 100% street car and will see the 2.5 mile road course a few times a year....probably never will see the 1/4 or 1/8.

Not a daily driver, just a nice retirement present... The 700rwhp now is insane but this motor is capable of so much more. Might as well get the most out of it.

So, F1R, F1X with race intercooler and new tubing or custom TT setup running twin PT6766

My goal is a good driving street car that joins the 1000rwhp club here on Camaro5. Read my sig line for mods so far.

HELP!!!!!!

All I can say is I love my tt set up. Absolute power in any rpm. The idle and street manners are better then stock. And the quiet sleeper approach is awesome, until you hit the pedal, and hear jet engines. I am in love 1 yr later like a married couple.

Does anyone know if the f1-r is a good street head unit?

Im thinking, nothing ventured nothing gained. I may just try the TT route. My shop is using all quality parts and will coat the units and manifolds and the piping as well. They are going to use Precision Turbo 6766 turbos and should allow for future endeavors if i feel the need. The 3 different boost levels i did not know about.....does this require 3 different tunes? I have the EFI Live AutoCal that can store 5 of Pat G's tunes.

Thanks guys.....what ever became of Darth Emma's twin build?
