      Tar Ox 6 piston brakes for the GTI. First and only set (for now) in the U. S.

      They'll give me two extra pistons, allow me to get smaller adaptors for my wheels and hopefully better stopping power than my Brembos.

      There are some old vids of my car on the net. I need to round em up and make some new ones also. Go for a ride in a 24vT and you will have a permagrin, hehe.

      love the build and your work. I am trying to figure out the advantage gained going twin turbo? I was told the only twin setups that gave distinct advantages are the sequential turbo setups, where a smaller spools up a much bigger one. I am asking so I can learn myself.

      The way i understand it, is that you gain the power similar to a large turbo, without the lag. Since those turbos are always going to move the same volume of air, but with this setup that same volume of air is getting put into only 3 cylinders instead of 6. So you essentially gain twice the boost (go figure lol) without a massive turbo that cant spool below 3700 rpm.

      Feel free to correct me if i'm completely wrong

      As explained earlier in the thread there isnt much difference but it sure is cool. Remember there are two turbos but only half as much airflow is going thru each one.

      You gain SOME advantage because yes there are smaller turbo wheels, but remember there are two, so the total mass of the wheels is probably about the same, but the rotational moment of inertia is going to be a bit less as the wheels are smaller, and thus have a smaller diameter and the mass is 'closer' to the axis of rotation.

      Imagine being on an office chair, and spinning yourself, if you extend your arms/legs you rotate slower, and if you pull them in you speed up. That is the same basic principle in action, because of conservation of energy it takes less energy to speed up something that is spinning when the mass is located closer to the center than uif it is farther out.

      In all reality, the difference is going to be VERY VERY small.

      Hey Rictus....Any info on your radiator and -AN fittings? I love the work done here....also jealous of all that bling. Is that a Mishimoto Radiator? Are those AN to NPT hose ends? Whats the NPT for the radiator? Those be my questions...thanks for sharing with us 24v guys.

      That is a Mishimoto radiator... Greg welded male AN fittings onto the radiator so all we had to do was screw the AN lines onto it. I don't remember what the numbers are off the top of my head, sorry.

      I spent quite a lot with Fragola and continue to do so!

      Thank you, kind sir. I have the same radiator and was thinking they were welded -AN. I may look to do something similar, as i just ordered some of my Earl's fittings. I will be using -10 AN hose for the majority of my coolant lines. Do you know if that is what is being done with your beast?
      Are those the Integrated Engineering heater core fittings? Any idea on the size of silicone used on your t-stat housing? Looks great all around...i promise not to steal all your ideas here...after all, i only have 1 turboes

      The heatercore fittings are modified boomdaddymack fittings so there's no need to use a male to male adapter for AN.

      I don't remember the size of the coolant lines nor the silicone stuff...

      I think there was talk of making the silicone and fittings for the coolant as a kit...
