Regarding price, it's a custom one-off build...this isn't a poorly pieced together kit. Just because it's only one turbo, don't let the power delivery/price fool you. I could have done an off the shelf kit for a comparable price, but I like being original and I like the power delivery of a single turbo. Regarding dyno numbers, I don't want to speculate BUT I don't see why this kit shouldn't make some good power

Shawn, your welds cease to amaze me! If I didn't love the look of the HKS exhaust, I'd easily ask you to fab me up an exhaust, too.
Thanks Ryan, as many think otherwise, custom costs more than something from the shelf typically. Why people think it should be less is beyond me, my 3 month waiting list for such a build supports my end of the theory though

Thank you as well, appreciate everyone's kind words regarding the fab work! Wastegate is a Tial MVR (replaced the Tial 44). The undertray will be returning, the wastegate dump extends just beyond it

Ryan has said he's shooting for 500whp, I think that's a little conservative, 550whp should be good though @ 20-22psi

As far as tuning, you're going to the right place. I never got to show you my TT z, but it was crazyyyy fast, ask Chris lol.

P.S. You might want to consider cutting up your front bumper so that the turbo can get some air? one of those bumper scoops? because that turbo is being blocked completely...
Appreciate your love for my fab! I thought my Roadster was tight on space in certain places, the Z is tight EVERYWHERE! Regardless, I am very persistant and when I set my mind to something it will be done despite what obstacles are in my way!

Thank you everyone for your comments and input, I appreciate everyone's comments good or bad!

Piping looks great.. welds look top notch.
-Are you considering some sort protection from the heat of the turbo? (ie: turbo blanket, piping wrap?) The turbo location will add a huge engine "bling" factor, but will also def introduce intense heat.
-What EMS? or are you going with an UPREV tune?

Off topic: Your M's engine bay look sooo clean! Great job!

I'm more worried of the downpipe getting hot and melting a belt or sensor or wire. Are you going to heat wrap the downpipe?
Love the build.. I was looking for someone to fab a kit like this when I first got the car but had no luck so went with the TT's. Hopefully your build will open the door for others that have been wanting a simpler turbo set up.. Looks like it will be alot easyer to maintain.

I was wondering this too, that will be a huge amount of intense heat confined to an already hot engine bay. Some venting via the hood is probably the easiest way to help that problem out, are there any additional cooling plans right now?

is my understanding correct to say the single turbo will reach full boost later than two twins? and will produce more power up top but sacrifice low end power and torque? :\

I think for $6k it could be done even with a profit margin!

I'll shoot high......
Turbo Charger - GT35R - $1500
Wastegate - $300
Blow off Valve - $300
Intercooler core - $500
Misc oil fittings/lines/air filter - $400

You would have $3000 to fab:
Up pipe (turbo manifold)
Downpipe
Intake pipe
Intercooler end tanks
Intercooler piping

I understand the first kit would simply cost more, due to needing more time to produce. If you were to make jigs and make a seemless process. A single turbo kit would be priced perfect at $6k right with the superchargers, rather then $7800-8k for a twin kit.

It should take a bit longer to spool but I doubt it will be that much, you have to remember that both exhaust manifolds are spooling this single larger turbo, with twins you are using half the exhaust to spool a smaller turbo. The potential up top is much greater, I just hope Ryan doesn't plan on finding out without a built motor

I don't think their reluctance to mass produce a kit has to do with profit margin. It sounds like they are not the type of company that wants to get involved in doing that kind of business for a product like this. They do custom work. If you want a mass produced kit, send these pics to a company that is in that line of business, and I am sure they will be willing to look into it if there is a market for it.

Very, very, very interested to see how this turns out. I love loud spools.

Your craftsmanship is second to none. Its hard to find someone that does nice work like this. Too bad you don't have any interest in making a jig for the piping. I think you would do well if you turned this into a kit

What I am wondering is, how even the air flow is going to be with one turbo to both throttle bodies?

Very interesting. I wonder how much lag it will have? What do you plan to use for tuning?

I'm also worried about the bracket for the turbo mount? I had the Turbonetics kit on my 350 and it had a small short piece of solid iron that held it up. I guess with the little extra support of the piping it will be ok.
