Twin turbo kit

Hey, i'm looking to build a twin turbo sbc in the near future. Still debating if i'm going to buy a long block from shafiroff or find an engine builder in calgary or vancouver to build one. Anyways i'm wondering what you guys thought of these twin turbo kits. Banks twin turbo kit vs. wrench rat twin turbo kit (stage 2)? I can't find a price on the banks so i'm probably going to call tomorrow to find out.

Here is the Shafiroff's long block

If you know anyone in calgary or vancouver thats a good engine builder let me know. Calgary would be best!

Re: twin turbo kit

The wrenchrat does look pretty good, I like turbonetic's turbo's and I only seen banks on diesel applications. Turbonetics dont carry carb numbers though just saying...

Re: twin turbo kit

Hey man read whipple's supercharger site. Seems the twin screw design is the way to go after all, who knew. 1854 german engineered technology the most effecient? way cool.

Re: twin turbo kit

The wrencrat kit looks nice, stage 2 though. Looks like no name brand wastegates and BOV. Nice though. Also looks like you cant fit power steering. It's ALOT of work to add twins in our car. I'm over a year into this build, on and off and just finshed all the plumbing. Banks is nice too, easier to install, but you have to make the downtubes and wastegats tube. I can't wait.

Don't forget over a grand for a fuel system.

My "dream" had been to build a twin turbo car too but with no welding skills or tools and a limited budget I chose a ProCharger when it came time to do it.

Twin turbos are awesome, don't get me wrong. But like mnm said, he is a year into it and has not fired it yet. A turbo deal will take a lot of hours to build. You can do the ProCharger in as little as a weekend!

I've had a Procharged 540 and twin turbo cars, they're all breathtaking. No doubt, a Procharger is cheaper and way easier to install. Of course the right size turbo(s) at the same boost as the Procharger will make more power...........

Can't go wrong either way in my opinion, depends on how much you want to spend and fabricate, and the look and manners you're after.

Brian Wolfe from Wrenchrat Inc. -

Just clearing up a few little things here really quick. Thanks for checking out our twin turbo system, we really appreciate it! In my opinion our system is the most complete and best looking twin turbo system for the money, we priced this system for the average hot-rod builder like ourselves.

-The Wrenchrat 'stage-1' system comes with no-name wastegates and blow-off valve. They can be upgraded to Tial's.


-The Wrenchrat 'stage-2' system comes with Tial wastegates and blow-off valve standard.


-March's driver side low-mount P/S setup will fit and our custom alternator bracket is included in the kit.





-Our turbo headers, turbo's, downpipes, wastegate and wastegate downpipes come pre-assembled so you drop each side down into the engine bay like you would a header. We have also bolted the whole twin turbo system onto the engine outside of the car and dropped it right into a '67 Chevelle with no problem.



-Yes, you can remove the valve covers...





Let me know if you guys have any further questions.

Thanks,
Brian Wolfe

Re: Twin turbo kit

Very nice setup, but does that fit under a stock 2" cowl hood on a first gen. I'm building a twin and the hat HAS to be turned. I couldn't use the CSU hat. I went with the EV because of hood clearance and had to turn it. Also does the drivers side turbo hit the fender? Do you have any pics of the system installed in a car? Here's some pics of my hat and there was no way it would fit straight to the merge.

good looking kit he has, but I'm pretty sure it will not clear the stock cowl hood due to the hat being up inside the cowl hole a bit, and you won't get the inlet pipes in. An aftermarket fiberglass hood without the inner structure that the steel hoods have may work.

Re: Twin turbo kit

That kit was designed for Chevelles right?

Yea thats what I was thinking. An aftermarket hood will work. If my hood wasn't original I would have cut mine and it would have fit. The turbos look low too. Really looks like it will hit the fender.
