Turbos

hi,

i was wondering if i can throw in another r32 gts-t turbo into my r32 gts-t? is that possible? and what other mods would i require too. I just thought this would be a better option for me rather than buying a single bigger turbo also am getting this pretty cheap.


thanks guys

possible, sure, but why bother? by the time you've paid for bespoke manifolds and pipework it'd be cheaper to just drop in a bigger single.

I'd say it'd be far less work to get something like a single KKR bolt on turbo - you'd need new oil lines, new manifold, new dump pipes, new intakes, and probably a new ECU AT LEAST to get it running. It'd be a laggy piece of crap and you'd still have the crappy ceramic exhaust wheels. In short, really bad idea I reckon.

Definately easier and better in the long run to go get a bigger single rather than waste money on converting to twins. The low cost of the other turbo you mention would be outweighed by the cost of getting custom work done to fit said std turbo.
Just my opinion.

TT
