I don't know how they do it, perhaps witchcraft

thanks guys!

yes, I will keep the 2 liter displacement. I don't need to add any more displacement......because I have the "compound turbo" set-up.

it will act like a V8 displacement (2 liter engine plus gt28 turbo).......then you add the gt40 turbo. So its almost like a v8 engine with a big turbo That's the good thing about a compound turbo set-up.

its a 600hp build daily driven and very stout engine that can handle up to 1000 hp.

UPDATE:

since, I'm very cautious about using a tubular manifold that will crack later on. Burnsstainless.com will be providing BTF 321 stainless steel to use for the manifold fabricating. 321 stainless steel tubing is one of the most desirable materials for exhaust systems because of its excellent resistance to fatigue and cracking at elevated temperatures. It is usually the material of choice for high temperature turbo applications.

On top of that, I talked to the manager/metallurgist of Nitrofreeze about having the 321 stainless steel manifold cryo-treated since I really want the BTF tubular manifold to last and not crack due to heat cycles.

Ryan told me that a 321 stainless steel is 17-19% carbon. It would benefit from cryo-treatment. the manifold will undergo stress relieving. This helps remove stresses that will develop intro cracks as the part ages. Retained austenite will convert to martensite making the manifold less susceptible to cracking.

So Nitrofreeze.com, one of my sponsors recommended to have my 321 tubular manifold, dp, and other hot parts be cryo-treated first.....before going to swaintech for ceramic coating.

I personally will not be able to afford all of these upgrades if I don't get help by these companies. But Jeb, it's not all glamorous being sponsored. I have all obligations and contracts to fullfill.


That's why I always strive to go to unchartered territories ....... to make sure my car is always at the top and different. That's how my car gets noticed and sponsored......

Congrats on the project man! Hope it works out smoothly. As to those inquiring minds regarding price I can vouch for the engine build since I did one myself it's roughly 8.5K including parts.
