I believe they sold a manifold for Twin TD06, we had one in stock many moons ago but sold it, think it's still a very rare piece and may be difficult to get with Trusts recent financial issues (many hard to get parts they're simply stopped producing). I can't quite remember who bought the original manifold we had an what ever came of it, originally Omar had ordered it for his car but switched plans. I don't recall it being a complete kit just a manifold that was listed in their Japan Catalog.

Nick, as usual, you are correct. brianmoss69, got your PM. I previously had two, CUSTOM, GReddy-based, big twin-turbo upgrades on my car, starting in 1998 until 2004 when I went stroker. Onelove is correct as well. My "kit" consisted of a Trust/Top Secret twin turbo manifold, two GReddy TD05H 18G turbos, a GReddy Type C Racing Wastegate, to which I added a Trust 16-row oil cooler. There was no turbo or FMIC piping, nor was there any lines, fittings, couplers, clamps or DP/MP, the type of stuff you normally receive when you purchase an off-the-shelf kit. SP Engineering and I blew these turbos when we were dynoing for Turbo magazine in preparation for its first article on my car.

We replaced the above turbos with GReddy's TD06L2 20G 8cm2 turbos, the Type C with the Type C H-F and dynoed at 666 whp for Turbo magazine on 92-octane pump. I eventually made 801 whp and 633 rwt with these turbos at 1.9 kg/cm^2 of boost, but the turbos didn't like boost above 1.75 kg/cm^2. In both cases, I went too small on the A/Rs because I was afraid I would give up too much in spool (I was wrong).

Many, many years ago, Turbo mag featured a black Trust/GReddy twin turbo factory car that made 653 whp, IIRC, a number that was considered HUGE at the time. Many who saw this article, or heard of it, figured that GReddy had offered an off-the-shelf big twin upgrade. Unfortunately this was not the case. I still have the manifold I used for the above set-ups because I always thought it might be fun to install it in my red car at some point. Hope this helps.

Ken.
