    God i love turbos , makes you wonder though if 3 cylinders could spin a 1.15 gt4202 in a more timely fashion than 6 cylinders can spin a 5 inch turbine wheel?

    2x GT42's ftw, that'll work heaps better.

    Hmm, I wonder what a GT60 would do on a 383...
    Nah.

    I know I know I know-twins are hard work.

    However, the decision also has to do with finances unfortunately.

    Considering how much work I have done over the years, 1 extra dump pipe, oil feed and drain etc is childs play.

    He already has one & can get a good price on another, will make everything more compact (albeit more complicated), will spool faster & will be capable of plenty of HP - not too many downsides compared to a big single really.

    ah - didn't realise Sean had hung onto the GT42.

    Here's hoping there is a buyer for the GT60 then.

    Perhaps the bloke that buys the built 1FZ

    Nah, but they'll spool a bunch faster than the GT60 & make more grunt than a 5533.
    I think some people have missed the point of Seans car - it's not purely about racing (though that is a big part) it's about being completely over the top with WAAAAAAY to much power - just coz he can.

    Disclaimer-

    I make absolutely no representations that this car is appropriately thought out, sensible, properly matched or well conceived.

    I completely agree that a GT55 would be a better option, but finances dictate one is out of reach (I had the GT60 bagsed, but hadn't picked it up yet-so I hadn't outlaid the funds yet)

    I reckon the two will spool apprx the same/a bit laggier than a 55, with peak HP ability being a bit higher. (approx 180lbs/min at max)

    However-if you think that GT42s are a bit silly, consider the following list-p

    Will a landcruiser engine work as a race engine-no
    Is a Crown a good choice for a street/drag car-probably not
    Should an A340 gearbox in a drag car-no
    Does an A340 bolt up to a 1FZ-no
    Should you make a gearbox adaptor at home in the shed? inadviseable.
    Can you weld a diff conversion together with a Ryobi hobby welder? Nup.
    should injector bosses be glued in with Devcon? uh-uh.
    Are truck intercoolers any good? I don't think so.

    A couple of 42s will just continue the trend.

    As I said though-I agree that a 55 is spot-on, it's just that the outlay is just that bit too much, and time and effort are two things I can provide in abundance.

    We'll see though-at this point of the project (just before the money is actually spent) the plan is flip-flopping daily.

    Please allow me to add to this list. Some have been and gone.

    Is it "right" to cut up potentially one of the rarest cars in Australia - No.
    Can you repair wastegate diaphrams? don't be silly.
    Can you use said repaired diaphram to then make a watsegate in the shed with simple handtools? ha! - funny.
    Should PVC piping be used as part of your intake - No.
    Do light truck tyres make good drag tyres - No.
    Should you trust a crown to tow another - hell No.
    Do bosch blow off valves work backwards - apparently not at the time.
    Are Mazda throttle bodies good on anything other than a rotary? shouldn't be.
    Do Crane Hi6's work at all when wired "backwards" - ie: red<>+ve - Hmm...
    Are 80's laptops designed to run the pinnacle of tuning software? unlikely.
    Are 80's said laptop computers designed to run directly off car batteries - No.

    + many, many more.

    I like the one about holding inlet manifolds together with a hitch strap or whateevr it is called and still winning the drag day.

    Just as I promised-I changed my mind again.

    A Precision Turbo PT-101 'Race Thumper' single is on the way from Texas as of this morning.

    101mm inducer, rated at 2000hp, smaller F-trim turbine and 1.00 housing.

    Why not the PT-106? I mean, it's not like this one's going to be left there for ever.
