Smile T-trim or twin turbos???

which should i go with? i have a T-trim now, but i have a chance to get a twin turbo kit (home made) the turbos are 60 A/R cold side, .63 hot. t/3-t-4 flange. it will go on a 408 windsor with 205/225 type heads. basically need a little help deciding which on to go with. any advice will help.

The kit is made for a 351? I'd imagine most will say turbo since this is a turbo forum section. But if it were my car then it would greatly depend on the quality of the homemade it and any sacrifices the install required me to do.

it's for a 302, and i figured i would have to modify it a little, but basically i never did the turbo route, and didn't know if it was worth the trouble if any.

Yes, they are worth it.

t3/t4's are a bit small for a 408 unless the hotside is spec'd out just right.

you want

Hotside t3 with Stage 5 trim wheel and .82 a/r housing
Coldside t4 - 60-1

that will spool like a mo-fo on a 408 and support about 700+rwhp

You can swap out hotside housing and wheels easily

Might be more trouble than it is worth trying to make 302 kit work on a 351 though.

While the turbos might be worth it that does not mean the homemade kit is. Depending on how it is laid out you could be looking at a downpipe hassle at the very least. Plus depends on how the headers are made as well.

i'l do that and check on the exact specs of the turbo's. also that's what i heard about being on the small side, gives me some things to think about.

I'd also look at the intercooler and see if it is worthy of the turbos or not.

On all of my Vortech combos I never had issues with shredding belts. What I did have issues with was the Vortechs leaking oil although my last Vortech combo had zero issues.

I never once shredded a belt. I would say turbo = no belt slipping. lol

With the turbo most likely to small and a questionable home made kit I say max out the T trim. Then step up to a YSi. You should be good to go!

i never had a issue either besides the belt slipping ever once in awhile. seems like everyone is saying keep the t-trim and spin it, unless you go with bigger twin turbo's than the ones that i mentioned above on the first post.
