    thanks for the link I think I get it now. Although it still doesn't answer one question for me how do you route your exhaust from your heads to your turbo's and then back down to your exhaust? no headers?

    okay so the manifold is hooked up to the turbo, this is considered the hot side, from there it spools the turbo up, from the back of the turbo is where the exhaust is vented out, this usually what people referred to as the down pipe. This whole side is considered the hot side, or hot piping, whatever.

    The turbo that has two halves, the one side that is spun up by the exhaust which is connected to the other side which is the compressor. That opening that you always see on turbos is where the air is sucked in through and pushed into the intercooler or just the intake if you don't have an IC. This is called the cold side or cold piping, whatever.

    I hope that makes it easier, but none the less i am not always great at explaining things so look at this link it has pics and stuff and you will see what i am talking about. http://www.airpowersystems.com/fbody/turbo.htm

    wow this makes way more sense now! So I take it there is no way to rig up turbo's onto a long tube setup you have to get the shorty headers that couple with the turbo's?

    I'm going to move onto a vary broad view of FI now I guess. Can you boost stock internals on an LS1 heavier with turbo's then you can with a supercharger. I don't know if this is false or not but I've alwasy been under the impression that for whatever reason you can put more boost safely into an engine with turbo's and TT in particular then you can with SC is this false? If its correct then why so? is it because of air density? or air temperature?

    Another question how much would it cost roughly for a TT setup on an LS1 after install and everything, compared to a single Turbo compared to a supercharger?

    YET ANOTHER QUESTION what are the different kinds of SC? I don't know if I'm getting this right or not but there are the vortech's which are basically a turbo style SC right? and then theres the Roots? or something right which are the twin screw ones like on the cobra's? correct? whats the fundamental differences between those superchargers?

    SORRY ABOUT ALL THE POSTS GUYS... just a real newb here

    Vortech's and Prochargers are called centrifugal superchargers. In rough terms, they could be called a belt driven turbocharger. Then there are roots style blowers, like the kind you see on Top Fuel cars and other serious race cars and even some street cars. They sit on top of the engine unlike a centrifugal. A twin screw is similar to a roots and yes, they are found on 03-04 Cobra's and the new GT 500. They are a different design and are generally more efficient than a regular roots.

    I don't think you have to worry about weight much with 800ish!
