      Hello everyone, I am currently out in the garage working on this project finishing up the wiring for the AEM FIC controller and my gauges. I will have a ton of pictures posted by tonight, but I just wanted to get the word out about the build! It is going to be a custom built twin side-winder manifold after my battery relocation. I have a forge intercooler, HKS BOV, SS exhaust tubing for the manifold, 2" aluminum intercooler tubing, Oil Cooler and so on. Here are a few teaser pictures, but I will load more of them tonight and keep posting them as I go! I am also going to creating DIY's on how to wire in the AEM FIC into these cars so other people can have an easier installation then I did. Enjoy and feel free to criticize or make suggestions, I am open to ideas and thoughts from everyone.

      So I have made the bracket that will help stabilize the turbos together while they are mounted. Tomorrow I plan on removing the stock exhaust and start making the downpipes. Here are some more pictures for you all. The fic will be mounted on the back wall of the glove box and the wires have been ran through the firewall above the blower motor. There was a precut out hole















      This is my good friend and co-worker Mike who is helping with a lot of this build.

      So here is the update, I have built the bracket to connect the two turbos together and the bracket to hold the turbos in place. I went up to summit racing and bought all of my exhaust tubes, oil lines, fittings and air filters. I am really starting to get pumped up for this build now I finally have all the parts! Tomorrow I am going to get the wideband, boost gauge hooked up and start mapping out the plumbing. Ill keep ya posted! New pics!

      no hate but were the K04s really cheap it seems like a whole lot of work to fit two turbo's verses one that is sized correctly

      These are not that cheap, they are around $700 each since they are genuine Borg Warners. Also I do not like doing things other people have already done. This project is not to just have a turbo vr6, but rather to push the limits on the style. Custom sidewinder manifolds are kind of my trademark as a builder too. I hate hiding turbos away in the back of the engine. This is why I am putting so much time and effort into the design and looks of this kit as well as performance. I boosted my 12v vr6 a few years back with a single masterpower super60 turbo, so I am looking forward to doing this twin turbo. My ultimate goal is to get this car into euro-tuner or any other car magazine for a half page or so. It is also exciting knowing that there is nothing like what I have in the entire world. Can I get an AMEN for creativity! Check out some of these pictures from a recent build, its my friend Mikes Mazda MP3, which has the body and engine of a speed protege minus the turbo. We put a K04 on it as well and know she is running like a beast. Plus the presentation of the turbo is excellent!

      rise and shine its turbo time!!!!!!!! Bright and early this morning to build my manifolds Ill get some pictures up later tonight. My goal today is to mount the intercooler, run the oil lines, and have the manifold build, maybe if I am lucky, try and start on the exhaust.

      lovemyjetta, we can start your turbo build as soon as were done with mine, if we plan it out right, we could knock it out in a weekend. PM me and we can talk on the phone. Thanks Man

      So just getting back inside from 11 hours of building and frustration. This was just a harsh reminder on how when it rains, it F*****G pours lol. SO started out removing the down pipes from the cast headers and every single stud broke with the nut on it from how rusted it was. Then I ran out of exhaust tubing to make the manifold so I had to reassemble my car to go to summit racing. Then got back to drain the oil and went to remove the filter housing cap and CRACK. The housing cracked because the person before me must have torqued this thing down to 100ft/lbs. So I plastic welded all of the cracks and then did a huge coat of JB Weld to get me to work on monday and just get a new housing cap off the shelf. I moved on to installing the oil feed line and I am missing an AN hose fitting for one of the turbos. Then there were all of the normal frustrations. I was able to get one of the manifold runners built and half of the other done. I always say, anything worth having does not come easy. I am going to keep pushing and keep going! But I will say I fell way short for all of my goals today

      So this is your main transportation while you are doing all this work to the car? Wow!!! You are in for an adventure...
      Will you be lowering compression of the motor for this build?
      Props for doing something custom and unusual, but its not like twin turbos on a VR haven't been done...
      Folks have shown twins are typically not as efficient as a single big turbo, but it does have a wow factor, especially with a sidewinder mani!!
      Please post detail pics of the mani when it gets together.
      Will you be putting an lsd in your trans? Any cams planned? Standalone or chip?
