      LOL nope not done, was just trying to support a friend

      20psi that link didnt work for me, but is it the orange eclipse? If so that was the post that gave me the idea for a compound set up.

      If you go to youtube and type in streetfighter compound turbo you can see what kind of results this setup can produce. That eclipse has a couple of vids on there too.

      Im not saying this cant be done, but I think the placement of the turbos and extra exhaust piping that will be needed will cause extreme heat issues in the engine bay.. Are you going with a top mount or bottom mount? Top mount will be easier to run as far as connecting the turbos and you might beable to squeeze the large one in a similar fashion to the sidewinder tubular exhaust mani.. but my main concern is heat. The TT is already notorious for having ****ty heat dissipation properties. Do you have plans for that? otherwise the biggest obstacle will be tuning, if you are having a shop do it I would be leery unless they have tuned a compound turbo setup before. Its definitely possible, its been discussed before but I (personally) think it will be way too impractical.. Hope to see you succeed though!

      -also, whats the plan for the intakes? the small TIP wont be a problem, but stuffing a turbo capable of 500whp will run a 4" inlet.. taper down to 3" and hope to fit?

      i guess you like to prove people wrong and love a challenge , i seen some twin scroll setups for the 1.8, never thought of a twin turbo setup, good luck

      Everything is being heat wrapped or ceramic coated, im hoping that will trap most of the heat. If not maybe ill just gold line EVERYTHING!!!(not really) If all else fails I might just end up cutting vents in the hood and filling them with mesh which might look cool, but i think heat wise i will be fine. I am going with a top mount for the smaller turbo. I should be able to run the exhaust pipe from the smaller turbo to the larger one easily, I'm just worried about how to run the exhaust back from the 60-1. There might be enough room to run 2-2.5inch pipe from the turbo and down and around the engine to meet up with my 3" dp. It may require moving some stuff around but i think its doable. The 60-1 has a 4" intake, I'm running mafless so im just using a 4" filter off of the turbo.

      As far as tuning is concerned, im using maestro on the dyno at Fasttimes Motorsports. They have tuned compounds before, last one they did was a Suby WRX that made 400hp so i should be ok.

      Proving people wrong is great and all, but i really just want something different from everyone else. I have had BT cars before and it has turned me into the worlds premier loather of lag. Having a car that produces boost instantly is what i want and this setup will get me closest to that goal. Oh and I always love a challenge!!!

      For all those that dont know how compound setup works, here is a diagram I made. Maybe not the best but drawing it out on paper is what helped me understand it in the beginning. This is how my orginial setup was going to look from the back of the motor.

      Well the block didn't come back on Wednesday like we thought it would. Apparently, after installing the rods, the clearances weren't what they wanted so now he has to do some machineing. Thats good I guess, at least they are being thorough. Now they say it will be back on Saturday. Im going to the shop to help install the motor so ill get some good pics of everything then. Stay Tuned.

      I think this might be easier on an A4 where there is more room. But thinking about top and bottom mount setups I bet you could pull this off pretty stealth with some crafty fab.

      Wouldn't your overall power be restricted to the flow of the small turbo's exhaust housing?

      Thats the great thing about this setup even if you are restricted by the small turbos exhaust housing it doesn't really matter. I think Im only going to be running the small turbo somewhere around 17psi which is well under what it can handle. You got to think, the larg turbo is for low pressure, your supplying your smaller turbo (high pressure) with already compressed air where it will then be compressed again and blown into the motor. This is why you can run much higher boost levels. I think we only have to run the large turbo at around 11psi to supply the small turbo with enough pressure to compress it to the pressure we need to make 500hp. I say "I think" because i am not the expert on this stuff. I understand the concept and all but as far as the math goes, thats all my mechanics job. There are a couple of faq sites about compound turbos. They have really good info that is pretty easy to understand until it gets into the math portion of it all. Take a look, they will be able to explain alot better than i can.

      Update...FRUSTRATION!!!

      The motor hasen't come back from the machine shop yet and i found out yesterday it was because my mechanic never paid the deposit for the work on my motor in the first place(even though i gave him $2000 for engine and powder coat already). So therefore my motor has been sitting there not being worked on for about a month and a half. I called the machine shop yesterday to see what the hold up on it was and low and behold found out i was being screwed. So I called my mechanic and used a few choice words and that seemed to get results.

      He went by there today and paid the deposit so hopefully it will be done by the end of this week. I will be sure to keep you guys posted as soon as there is some progress.

      Wow that's a bummer. I hope things go better from here on out! Too often it seems like things that start badly also end badly...

      Well hopefully things start moving forward a little better. After speaking with my mechanic he seems to be back on track. Over the last month I've only talked to him a couple of times about my car, but since our little discussion yesterday, hes been blowing up my phone. So I dont see any problems with things not getting accomplished on his end once the motor comes back. Their moving into a new shop in the next couple of weeks, so he would like to get it done before then.

      Sorry nothing really to report yet. The machinist finally started on my motor last Thursday so if he dosent run into any complications then it should be back to the shop near the end of this week. Then the real fun should begin...I'll keep you guys posted.
