I am looking at turboing my Mach 1 motor if I do not put nitrous on it. If I bought two T3 turbonetics Turbos, what piping, intercooler, and accessories would I need? I know I can keep my longtubes by reversing them, but is that wise or is it safe to do?

A little about my motor:
- 03 Mach1 4v with roughly 80k miles
- JLT CAI
- 90mm MAF from Lightning
- PaceSetter Longtubes
- Custom Catted X-Pipe
- Boral Roush Side Exhaust Mufflers
- 65mm Dual Blade TB
- Intake Manifold Spacer
- Stock Fuel Injectors
- Stock T-45
- Luke Pro Gold Stage 2 Clutch
- 4.10 Gears, 31-Spline Trac-Lock and 31-Spline Yokun Axles
- Stock internals (I know I can run minimum of 8lbs and max of 10lbs on stock motor)

Not sure how much of this is relevant, but this is what I have done minus some suspension add ons.

I feel like full length longtubes are just excessive if you want to go turbo. Turbo headers are more efficient the less piping you have before the turbine. I haven't turbo'd a car, but you're going to need a blowoff valve, wastegate, and the necessary electronic controls for them, piping for the downpipe, intercooler, etc. A kit, at least for the exhaust side, will save you a lot of time.

Edit: If your fuel system uses the same injectors as the GT, they probably need to go. GT injectors run something like 90% duty cycle with the stock tune
