Should have some room between the turbo and the x-pipe,you would think........
Sure why not... Just watch the heat with what cats you do use. A lot of the aftermarket high-flow cats are no where near the reliability/build quality of the factory cats, just a FYI.

We have had much success with the ARH high-flow cats on high boost applications, you may consider to use them.

Easy to swap housings. Can do .82s or bigger. That being said, the turbos that come with the kit make 550rwhp all the time on evos/srts and other cars. So two of them should be able to make 1000hp pretty easy. If not putting bigger is very easy.

time will tell just saying because it worked in a smaller motor doesnt mean it will work in another.

besides go to a 427. thats 3.5L. thats DAM NEAR twice the exhaust gas as the little 2.0 evo.
Not really how it works. 2.0L 4-valve per cyl. reving to 9000rpm is the key thing you are missing. The easier way to look at it is just simple HP. Engine is an air pump, Xlb/min of airflow makes roughly Xhp no matter what the static displacement is. Bigger displacement engine doesn't equate exactly to more air thoughput. At 50lb/min of throughput per turbo, the .63's are at about 1.4 pressure ratio. Not bad for a street car but a race car doesn't need that quick of spool up.
That being said you are right that the .63's are on the small side. FSP was only sent them for back to back testing with .82's.
1.0 and 1.25 housings are available and interchangeable.

So... We are putting a set of AGP's on a stock cubic inch motor in the next coming weeks. Looks like the shop car will be the SECOND FSP car with the AGP TT kit on it!

As soon as you get one installed and dyno numbers these things will sell like hot cakes.

Enjoy it buddy. Fly out to Arizona some time and the first beer is on me.

Matt,

Do you have rough timeline for when the introductory purchase kits may be available?

When I was at the shop a week ago 99% of the stuff was on the shelf ready to go. Just waiting on some oil lines. Kits have been shipping, just not on the website or "officially released" yet until they have everything ready to go. They don't want to deal with preorder/etc. They want kits to ship when ordered.

^^^ As Unreal said.

We are working on TWO AGP kits now at the shop. The instructions are still being put together, but as soon as they are ready to go out the door to public customers I am sure Kevin @ AGP will inform us.

I'll try to get some further information on this also. Stay tuned though, between us and ADM we have a few kits going on some cars for testing

Andy, I saw two nice turbos on the shelf marked "ADM" on them. I figured it was for you.

Just got a forged 376ci automatic car in yesterday for the AGP TT kit... Looks like shop car will be the second kit we do, but we're pretty excited to see some numbers. We're targeting 14psi right now because of fuel system limitations, should make some nice power though!

I know very little about Borg Warner turbos. Bearings? Water cooled or not? And is electric oil scavenging better than mechanical as done by Lingenfelter? Just a few questions I am having at this early intro. However, looks VERY promising.

BW is good stuff. That is just the base kit. You can get whatever you want really. AGP sells their own, PTE, etc. BWs are great turbos. Depending on what you want standard, or ball bearing. I think oil cooled, water cooled isn't needed. Electric scavenging is just different, not better or worst. As long as you use a good pump it works great. The new 911s just oil scavenging pumps and I believe this kit uses the same pump that Porsche uses so you know it is OEM level. I've never seen one fail.

You could add twins to your blower I know a cool shop that maybe doing that.

Are you working/worked for AGP? More info has come out of you than anyone else! I'm liking the way this kit looks...can't wait to see some results. I could easily sell the current headers on my 11' DD...

I use to work there in college. Some of my best friends own it. Now I'm just an engineer for medical devices. Moving down to Phoenix in a month.

That is awesome. Maybe you can answer this too! On the test car they had that made 680ish to the tire, did it run the stock stall? When was it at full boost? When did it start spooling? Max PSI?

Are the turbo's sized such that going up an incline at 70 would yield a few pounds of boost?

I own two turbo's cars, but they are both single turbo vehicles with stalls and have never driven a TT car before. Well, besides an ecoboost. lol

Stock stall. Only thing besides the turbo kit was a 3" exhaust. Full boost was ~1900, of course that depends on which gear/load. Starts spooling almost off idle. Any throttle would hit boost. Max psi depended on where it was set. They have an electronic boost controller. Most I saw was 10.5psi.

You could get different size housings if you wanted slower boost.
