I picked up a 91 GT a few months back, it was already a twin setup but I didnt like the way it looked and the motor was toast.

Heres some pics of the hot side im working on. I bought some shorties and flipped them around. I cut the flanges off and started cutting pipe and tacking it together. To make the bends I cut wedges.

Let me know what you think. I was thinking outside the box and I wanted to build this stuff my self without spending a ton of money.

Im waiting on the T4 flanges to finish up and then Ill have them tig'd and ceramic coated

Thats close to where my turbos are located. Are your drain lines going outside the frame rail?
Mine sit alittle further in and the drains go strait through the frame rail.

the center section is just on the outside of the frame rail. I was going to go thru the frame rail with the line. The downpipe will run under the headers close to the K member. I have solid mounts and am also going to fab up a support bracket coming off the frame rail to help support the turbo so the headers wont crack

Nice to see someone building it themselves! I also have the dside turbo like that. I have the coldside more inside the fender tho. I ran the exaust back under the header.

one side is a tad higher and further back but I did it that way to keep the passenger side turbo away from the top radiator hose



heres a couple of the back. Sunk the fuel cell into the floor and am making sheet metal floor panels. It looks a little crappy because its all dusty lol

I'm lovin the twins!
Thats similar to mine except i ran my dp's between the kmember and the control arm then back in behind the motor mount and beside the bellhousing. Thats the only way i could fit 3.5".

All the looking ive done I have never seen a crossover. But thats not to say there isnt some out there. This is all done myself with a ton of research and some stuff Ive bought off the Corral mostly.

Thanks about the fuel lines, I didnt want to shell out an ass load of money for braided. Its 1/2 metal tubing from the rear to the front and 3/8 return. (although not in pics)

Its shaping up nicely, too bad crappy cell phone pics make it look ugly

Although not near as fugly as Goatnipples....

haha

Looks like it's going to be rough changing plug wires.

Will you be doing that from underneath the car?

Wish I had the time & patients to do fab work!!!!

Yes I'll have to do the plugs from the bottom, its not going to be too bad tho, just take the tires off.

Fabbing it is a challenge, but its been fun
