I hear the infamous death whine from one or both or my turbo's, yes it's been a tragic day for me. BUT I have a stock twin turbo setup in my basement just laying there. The setup is used, the turbines "look" in great shape. I just dont have the money to go single or anything of that matter right now.

This is my only alternative, so would it a difficult job for me or someone to do, to switch the turbo's? Should I attempt it? Do you haveto lift up the engine a bit?

Any insite would really be helping me out, Im stuck in a bad position here guys. James

the oil return lines are probally bakes hard, i suggest getting new ones. they are only like 3" long, they go between the hard lines. any anything else that is rubber..maybe even the gaskets.

If you have never done it before and you are fairly mechanically inclined, then I would say it would take a better part of a weekend to do especiallly if they have never been taken off before. You will run into stuck bolts. The good thing about it is that you get to learn quite a bit about the workings of the car when you do it yourself.

Thats what it's all about`

Thanks for the information. I wish I could just go single, but i dont have a supra I have an SC300 with a 2jzgte in it. The stock rear end has over 200,000 miles on it. So I would haveto build the rear up a bit before moving to a sigle.

I wonder if it would be okay to turn the boost down to a reasonably level and never move it...hhmm. I was thinking a T66...

Don't take the stock manifold off. The center sections are held to the hot side of the manifold with a clamp. Remove that and replace the cartridges and cold sides.... You will save 90% of the time that you'd spend replacing the whole log. Just be careful that you don't ding up the fragile compressor side wheel. Kroil will help with the hot side fasteners.

I wouldn't be too concerned about the ring and pinon in the diff. The stock SC300 pumpkin is available as a whole unit used for well under $400 as an open diff.... With LSD is usually $800 (same diff as the all the supras except the 6spd). Gearing may be different as well.

A T61 making 500hp won't kill your diff, but if you have the W58 5speed..... all bets are off on that puppy.

GReddy T67

I didnt mean to say T66, it was a typo. I am just going to go with the GReddy T67 Kit from suprastore.com. It seems like a great bang for the buck.I have done some reasearch. GReddy has exceptional quality.

But what kind of fuel or electronics would I need guys? Note:this is a JSpec 2JZGTE with the smaller injectors. Thanks

Hmmm I'm not sure of the limits of the j-spec fuel system but I'm pretty sure it's much less than that of the US spec which is not exactly recommended for a single. So I'de say definatly go with one of those. I'm sure others have more info as this is something that has been done plenty of times before.
