ring up marks workshop too, if you're open to the idea of a blower. Will be cheaper.

i had a turbo ve and was using twin gt2876rs turbos which was a gen tt kit, kit worked great and was very reliable... made 400rwkw on 12psi through the auto but the fuel system was holding it back.

my setup did 70,000kms and was still going fine, its all in the tuning and the scavanger pump setup from the turbos

the kit that i had in my car was the bolt up kit. Do not run a single To4z you will suffercate the engine as the v8s love big rear housings and air flow, so i would go the gt42r as a minimum and this will be cheaper then the twin gt35r turbos. We have built a car with the gt42 bush bearing with the 6ltr and so on and it has made 700rwhp a piece of piss and has run a 9.6 @ 141mph on only 8psi. check it out

Big deal mate, no matter if u have 700hp there will always be someone out there that can beat u. U wont be getting traction! That sort of power is huge on the street good for track with slicks on but street tyres not so much. Then u will more then likely have to build a motor, clutch, turbo set up, tuning, fuel system, full exhaust. You are looking at 20 Grand is it really worth for a simple race?? If u have 20 grand pay the car off mate!
