    Good move, there are awesome turbo kits out there to consider. You sure as heck don't need twins to get to that power level though, so stay with a single unit. Reduces a great deal of weight to boot. Depending on the engine's power level, stock, I'd consider a T-88 Greddy....

    If that was directed to me...I have been up against one before, I wasn't impressed. And I didn't say I was against turbos or anything like that, I just saidI didn't care for the STS setup.

    Anyway good luck on your build. I think my next rebuild I will be going with a turbo setup. Keep us posted.
