      by the way rictus, be prepared for a lot of wheel spin if you're interested in low end power
      The internet is serious business.

      Your intake plumbing will be a little more elaborate than most, that is if you use the typical draw-through MAF

      I heard this project is being financed with all the money he's embezzled as a mod, that's why the search is down so much. There's not enough funds to pay the person that keeps up the site.

      Fantastic, can't wait till it's done.

      From what I know now, it will be a draw-through MAF... sometimes plans change and I'm the last to know.

      The piping will be elaborate with the air-to-water and intake piping, but it will be well-executed.

      You have to run a MAF with a VR6 (on ME7) because we don't have MAP sensors.

      Well... I may make another thread just about the motor for the 24v'ers... this thread is about the entire car. I've got some cosmetic plans as well, money allowing.

      Wow I missed out on this thread huh Nick?

      Air/Water intercooled 24Vs are freakin lame bro. Do something better.

      I can't wait to see it... I can only imagine what it'll be like to spool that hard that early and be able to rev that high. Awesome bro. Keep it up.

      Mike... Your A/W intercooled 24v may be lame but mine will be better. Definitely appreciate your input and I'm sure I'll be asking you more in the future.

      A twin setup wont really spool any faster than a properly sized single turbo setup, won't really make any more power either. Especially with the billet wheeled ball bearing turbos available today. Really twins are just novelty, more of a "because I can" sort of thing. You can get the HTA3582 which will hit full boost quicker than a 35R and still wind out to over 700awhp. I personally can't say I'd want spool any lower than that (3,000rpms) ESPECIALLY on a FWD car.

      They're also generally beneficial for V type engines with 2 separate heads because it makes fabrication a little easier.

      But either way this project will be pretty awesome and can't wait to see it

      Not to speak for Nick - but his goals here are actually pretty modest. He's not trying to make tons of HP - but rather to have a turbocharged car that has boost whenever he wants.

      His two turbos are both ball bearing - and they are pretty small... I'd guess this thing will be @ full boost near 3K - hopefully they'll be big enough to keep spooling hard 'till redline without running out of room.

      This should be one of the most fun MKIVs to drive. Exciting stuff.

      You got it right. It's a lot about "because I can" but the other points were taken into consideration as well.

      I've got a Stanton SK-2F, one of the first mixers with optical faders. It's old!
