Incon is probably not going to produce a Twin turbo kit for the 4V's. There are no TT systems unless you have one custom built.

Turbodrivenconcepts.com should be having a single turbo kit out here in the next couple of months, if not sooner.

Jake Lamotta has enough TT parts around his shop to build up several TT cars. He would have to custom make some parts depending on your year car. However, I have heard him say he could do this. One would have to be willing to spend a few thousand extra over a stock type kit. Of course, you would have a 10 second car that drives like stock. That's worth something extra...right?

It may be out, but who has one? I know MV Performance was going to install one, but I haven't heard any more...

Why would someone want a TT when the single turbo can make so much boost that it could grenade an engine as it is?

The turbos today are so good (and expensive) that you really only need 1.

The only reason why someone would want a TT vs a single turbo is due to using 2 smaller turbos that spool up faster than the larger single. Hence more power at a lower RPM. Only thing I can think of.

That's true...

and we have enough low end torque so 1 will suffice....I also have a 300zx twin turbo but my Cobra will kick the crap out of it

LOL if you're worried about low end power I wouldn't start with a DOHC, we know they have no low end.

All you need is an auto with a 3500 stall and a trans brake, and a nice set of tires.

Cool

What is meant when you say 3500 stall? I seen the stall word around some and always wondered what that meant!

A torque converter with a certain stall will allow the motor to spin at that RPM while the brakes or a transbrake is applied. If the car has a 3500 Stall, it can sit at a deadstop and be allowed to Rev to 3500 RPM so it can launch at that speed. It allows just enough slippage to maintain that stall RPM then after that it works just like a regular converter. It's great for racing but sucks for street use, as anytime you want to go somewhere you're going to turn that minimum stall speed.

Twin turbo has unique packaging advantages and disadvantages versus a single.

I think an interesting setup to have the simplest package would be an assymetrical single setup. One turbo with only one header spooling it up. You may have to trade off peak boost for lag but for those looking for lower boost pressures I think it's viable.

According to the TDC website FAQ's, their kits are capable of being installed by the consumer. They come with a chip to deal with any EEC issues. Me personaly, I hate letting someone else work on my cars.
