    Question Borg Warner EFR Twin 7163 V-Band Turbo Kit

    Could you elaborate on how (if any) your kit (http://www.suprastore.com/pr2jzvtwtuki.html) is different than Twins Turbo Motorsports (NLA) twin turbo EFR kit? http://www.supraforums.com/forum/sho...-turbo-kit-MK4 and http://www.supraforums.com/forum/sho...g-TQ-for-twins for your reference. A cpl of us were interested

    Also, any further feedback on the kit? Last post was about 1.5 yrs ago... http://www.supraforums.com/forum/sho...P-17-PSI/page2

    TIA!

    TIA!
    Thanks for the inquiry. Performance-wise (+/-) any twin 7163 kit is going to produce approximately the same numbers. The challenge on these twin kits is the fitment of the down pipe and midpipe as everything is a pretty tight layout in the engine bay. Our kit was test fit first on a block on an engine stand, then an engine and then in my personal car. Because of the very tight fitment of the dp/mp, we've decided to only sell it as a set-up kit (everything minus mp/dp) and have a local fabricator build those for the customer on site during install.

    We built the first 7163 kit on the market and the fitment was outstanding, but never ran it at higher boost before someone purchased the vehicle from me. For me personally I don't like the 'busy' look of the 7163 kit with an internal gate, so we went with the best lower profile, high temperature compliant 40mm gates on the market from TurboSmart. Boost control on the lower end was outstanding, they look great and fit well. Twins went with an internal gate set-up and like everything they do, it was custom fit to the car in the shop. I prefer the location of our turbos in the engine bay and of course we went with a V-band 7163 to our V-band ProSeries manifold.

    If you have any other questions let me know.

    Our kit will most likely not fit internal wastegates either. But at the power level where most Supra owners are looking, an internal gate setup is not ideal. Mark's build used a pair of TurboSmart wastegates, which is one of our favorite WG brands behind TiAL.

    I will say I was pleasantly surprised with how responsive having two turbos just under 60mm were. This sort of build is not for someone on a budget, but definitely for someone looking to get the most out of their setup

    Mark,

    Thanks for the clear response. I know this is probably a long shot, but any chance those twins fit under the TRD Strut Bar?

    Lonnie, I understand ya completely. Call me crazy, but I was considering this TT setup + your soon-to-be released Dual VVTL-I VTEC Billet Head, paired with a stroker kit as the ultimate TT low end responsive, but still with impressive top end setup I see you're in Sarasota. I'm in the South Brandon area. Maybe we can meet up and talk a bit more

    No worries at all. Yes, our kit fit under a TRD strut bar, as I had one on there, but took it off to further showcase the twins. We prefer to sit our kits as low as possible in the engine bay (where feasible). I used a PHR rotatable water neck piece, which made fitment of the lower radiator hose even better. Lonnie & Andy both live in Sarasota and have worked full-time for us for almost 15 years combined....feel free to pick either of their brains....
