    Cool Can my LS1 Block handle Twin Turbochargers?

    Hey there Guys

    Posting on here to seek some advice and guidance, and experience with a Twin Turbo Charged LS1.

    I am wanting to run Twin Garrett GTX3076R Turbos on my LS1. I have gone with a Summit Racing Pro LS Forged Rotating Assembly(Crank, Rods and Pistons). Holley Lo Ram LS modular intake and 102mm Holley throttle body. BTR Stage 2 Twin Turbo Cam. Trunion upgrade, springs, Lifters, pushrods, LS9 MLS head Gasket.

    Am I needing to upgrade anything else?

    My main concern at the moment is will my LS1 aluminium block be able to handle the boost? I want to make 700 to 800 wheel horsepower reliably. The car will be my daily driver. I would ideally love to move to a LQ4 or LQ9 iron block, but being in South africa it is very hard to get these blocks.

    Looking for any advice and reccomended action.
