How well do the T3/T4 twin set ups work?

A little background...
I have a Sportsman 342 on nitrous right now, the engine is making about 425 on its own and it has 8.5/1CR. I bought/built the engine around a T trim and had to sell that last year to finish the car up. I bought the nitrous kit just to make due...

Now Im looking for a winter upgrade and thinking about these kits...anyone have any experience with them? Or should I just save my money and get a bigger kit right off the bat? I was wondering how much boost they are good for and how much of a HP gain I should expect after proper tuning. Thanks in advance

Well there are numerous variants of the T3/T4 hybrids...you can make anywhere up to 1000HP depending on the turbos. The HP Twin Turbo 99-04 kits is one example. They run 50-67 Trim T3/T4 hybrids make anywhere from 450-900HP.

here is the kit I was considering, with a possible upgrade in the future (to bigger/better turbos). I figure even if the turbos are non rebuildable and inexpensive, I would still have the remainder of the kit in place for the upgrade. This is just one of them, but there are many like it on ebay...

Any thoughts?

you get what you pay for... turbos will probably go bad withn 1000 miles... but the piping is there...

My buddy bought that very kit. It doesn't look too bad of quality and really can speak for the turbos because we don't have the kit on yet the thing I don't like about it is how the intercooler mounts. It mounts as it lays in the one picture where it was on the ground and it sits right to the back of the core support under the drive belt other than that the kit doesn't look too bad

if you are weak on weld/fab dont pick this up. ive done this kit and the downpipes are a m f. the intercooler looks killer in place with an air intake continuous across from right to left. the headers put the turbos on bad areas that need to be raised.shift the ac also. but.....garrett does have housing options and internally gated compressors that will mate to the pipes that you make. ill try to pm pics but email me at [email protected]
