Twin turbo setup ?

How are you guys with the twins mounting the turbo in the passenger battery location, what kind of pedistal is the best way to go so far, also where is the best place to get your oil supply from, and to drain the oil back to the motor.
Thanks guys

Re: Twin turbo setup ?

I used 1/2" Carbon Steel for the mount and bolted it down to the existing mount on the accessory bracket where the AC compressor would normally go.

Fed it oil from the end of the Gen3 reservoir through a -4 Braided line, and drained it to a bung welded in the passenger's side of the oilpan through a -12 Braided line.




If you dig through my webshots you can get an idea of the space an 88mm charger takes up and use that to gauge how your charger will need to be placed, and what might need to be relocated or removed.








Video shows the final setup with both gates operational.

Good Luck, you'll likely need it.

Re: Twin turbo setup ?

I feed mine from the oil filter base and drain mine into the valve cover. My air filter is where the battery use to be.

can you use present tense when referencing something that is in the past?

For example:Joey could correctly say either of the following...

Before my truck tossed a rod, I used to feed the oil....

or:

Now that my truck is currently an Andersen edition it fed the oil from...

see how important tense is?

Re: Twin turbo setup ?
