Talking Parallel Turbos Update

Well I finally got around to installing the .84 A/R housings today on my turbos.

Not much to say yet as far as results are concerned as it was dark and I did not get to do much testing plus the tranny is not going to last very long and would rather be towing back to the shop in the daylight.

I can say the turbos do light now but do to my current gauge configeration and the fact I was on a dark narrow two lane road, I could not keep my eyes on the gauge to see exactly what boost numbers I was hitting.

The best I could tell in my few glances I was hitting between 15-20psi of boost.

Turbos are a little laggy which I figured from the start of this project but once they light the speedometer is buried very quickly.:Thumbup:

Now that the housings are on and I can see just what I got, I do see some more custom tuning coming from Tony Wildman shortly.:Thumbup: I also see some nitrous in my future: and shortly there after a built long block as I am sure this one will have a nice little window.

Just from the little I drove it tonight I am VERY PLEASED and think I may have a very promising setup:Thumbup: and for very little $$$.

Next big step will be a tranny that will take my abuse.:evil:

Anyways, I just thought I would share my latest progress as I have had alot of emails and calls from people wanting to know how this project was coming along.

I will post as I get more updates.

Later,
Darrell

Sweet deal man. Hope that you get the trans and the tuning done quickly, cause it will be very cool to see what these will do.

New Update...

The tranny is DEAD....

I knew it would not last long and sure enough it did not.

I was out driving around a few hours ago taking a buddy for a ride and had a built up older short bed Chevy try and take the twins on and he got spanked really bad but so did my tranny.

I managed to limp it back to the house and parked it and I am now trying to decide what way I want to go on the tranny. I am figuring it will be a few weeks before I can get around to doing anything with the tranny so I guess I won't have any updates until that is done.

Well it was fun while it lasted....:Thumbup:

Darrell

i saw some videos of this, it smokes really well, do the new housings help once they light, or is it still smokey as before?
