Alright, after reading this thread for the 2nd time, i am starting to waffle over to the AGP kit vs a custom fabbed setup using PT6766 units.

Couple questions though. After much research and brain picking, I have figured for my goals (up to 1200rwhp, but 1000-1100 initially) that the PT6766 or similar sized turbo is what i need to not over task the turbos. No E85 available here but i do blend in Torch for intank octane of about 96 and my compression ratio static is about 9.4 to one with -23cc Wiseco coated pistons

So what BW unit is similar to the 6766 that has 66mm inducer 87mm exducer on the compressor side and 67mm exducer and 75.5mm inducer on the turbine. I was gonna go with .96A/R T4 turbine housings and 4 in inlet and 2.5 in discharge on the compressor.

Also, with my Mast black label 6 bolt heads, the OEM manifolds will not work so i need custom built manifolds or maybe 2" shorties. What are the options with the AGP kit? Love the attention to detail that seems evident with this kit.

I am hoping to get ADM to take this on.

Good decision to use ADM over over SNL (Monster Clutches). Andy will take care of you AND make 1100 rwhp. I also think its wise to use a kit that is proven versus a "custom" kit that is new and unproven.

SNL has done a lot on my car and have been outstanding. This agp kit has me pretty impressed and I know Andy is a vendor and is a great shop with experience with it.

Bull, I was told the s261s will absolutely support 1200rwhp. Ben mentioned custom setups. I'm sure you could probably send turbos back in for a wheel size change if you wanted to. Or just talk to Ben and see what he recommends per his post

Bull, I have the pictures and some of the info you were asking about, but I'm inclined to agree with you on this possible decision...

If I was starting out rather than neck deep, I would almost assuredly go with the AGP kit... I'm in houston right now with no access to send the pics but I'll take care of it Friday....

Basically 51mms should max out around ~900rwhp, 56ss ~1050, 61s will do 1200+. Then Ben can do the bigger ones if someone really wanted 1400+.

For manifolds you would have to do something like Emma did and do ARH shorties/etc that keep the stock cat location. CA2010SH is the part number. Direct fit to factory cats so they should work.

This thread needs a bump.

Anyone know the estimated loss of pressure between the compressor and the intake manifold given the design of the IC, tubing size, number of bends and size of bends etc? I assume it should be no more than 2 psi.

We've been working on a dual cold air intake kit that has no down sides. I just finished testing the current design and will be offering them as an upgrade in a couple weeks. It is very impressive, will post pics in a few days.

I drive my car like I stole it. I do drive in the rain. Reason I questioned it is if I drive through a pretty wet road with puddles and it sucks enough water to get in motor I bet I would be at my own risk and not you or AGP

Thanks.

To cause the engine to hydrolock...you would need to almost completely submerge the airfilter in water...Puddles of water are a few inches in depth..

So if the water level is that high (2 feet), yes, that is your own risk...and you should probably pack some oars for your boat.

Puddle, standing water, etc wouldn't be an issue unless the tires are 3/4 submerged and water is pouring into your doors, and everything else is under water. That is like not wanting to run headers or cats because they would be completely submerged. The power steering rack would be underwater, the crank pulley 1/2 under, etc. It would take someone driving their car into a lake or trying to cross a river to cause an issue.

Custom man.
For these high hp build you really don't want anything that's been made. You want something made especially for your car.
That's exactly what SNL is doing to my V with the win 6766s. Let them custom fab and you'll be good to go man. Not like it's rocket science and it's something that has to be "proven."

Andy at ADM did one not too long ago.

Very nice pics of the setup including the air filter locations.Not as bad as I thought.
But would love to see the optional intake kit when AGP releases it.

will the smaller of the FMICs be efficient for 1000rwhp? Reason i ask is because i will road course the car a couple to few times a year and dont want to completely block the radiator. Or will blocking the radiator even be an issue. Mainly a street car and am concerned with the overall efficiency of the air entering the intake.

The road course will be track days, nothing competitive. Just want to have some "legal" fun

We have a couple intercooler options in the works. For a road race car that is going to be beat on continuously, keeping the engine cool needs to take some priority over making a billion HP. So a smaller intercooler that cools the charge air pretty good but also allows good airflow to the radiator is needed. We will have that shortly and it will support 1000+whp.
If you don't already have a meth injection kit, that would be a big step in the right direction too.

Thanks, currently running single nozzle ALKY for cooling alone. Tuned with the meth off. Now the weather has cooled a bit, i have the pump turned off so im not running too rich.

Hate to ask but do you have a rough estimate on the release of this new version FMIC
