Do you hear any spool difference? Maybe louder? Care to post up a video of normal driving? TIA
Lol I love aluminum welding. Even though I’m not a pro ?


No maf worries. That’s right. Love MAP. Always have

I will try. I have very limited time for anything in life

It screams however !!! The turbos pull so hard - that I have to learn to shift on time with the bmw 6 speed and 3.26 Lexus diff

Thanks guys ????

*I stopped using photobucket ever since they took down all past pics/links. Not sure what everyone is using now. Don't know how to embed from google photos

That’s a beautiful sound. I love turbos. Turbines. Jets. Anything that makes power and that sweet sound !! ???

Mine comes on around 3k. Cuz of the straight twins (no sequential ) and the larger wheels and yada yada

Looking to try this myself. How did you sort all the vacuum lines?
I dont recall any vacuum lines on the stock intakes, most vacuum lines that used to be on the metal distributing line, i changed them to silicone hoses and tucked them under the dual intakes and surrounding areas for the vsv's.

You have to be creative , that's all i can tell you :), the only piping i bought was for the 2nd turbo, which was a J bend and a few straight bends, i used the intake bracket of the 1st turbo and bought couple of aluminum elbows and reducers , and carefully pieced them together, then when it was perfect i welded them all and polished them, the BOV from factory, i welded it shit with a aluminum tube bar , came out nice, but i would do it again, CX Racing makes a Y pipe which takes out all that welding . Have fun

Thanks man... looking at these stock intake pipes, it looks as if there are a couple small vacuum nipples and a couple large ones

So the big vacuum port for turbo back turbo #2, is routed to the Accelerator valve on the throttle chamber, i disconnected that, i installed a small K&N filter on the valve, and plugged/welded the nipples on the pipe, as far as the blow off valve port, i cut it off and welded a aluminium solid tube, and the small vacuum tube when the pipe goes to the inter-cooler up front, you can use that for the aftermarket blow off valve or just put a rubber plug over it , make sure its a tight one.

Let me know if you need help, the intake for the back turbo is not bad to fabricate, getting the intake flange angled for the #1 turbo and the limited area is the hard part, you got the fan shroud, and the upper inter cooler y pipe to work around, but the final product is the jam !! also, behind the passenger side headlight floor i cut out a 3" hole and fabricated a elbow , which goes behind the right front bumper opening below the signal light, with a mesh screen for extra air flow, it may not change anything as far as horsepower, BUT, it will flow in outside air to the turbos , i used a Porsche Cayene intake elbow, which i randomly found, it bolt right in lol
