    There`s no way they`d fit mate, the exhaust would mess up to begin with, and the lefthand turbo is right where my induction kit`ll be.

    Spose I`ll have to be content with a Magnacharger (next year) instead

    surely you could run a log manifold, with a take off in the middle forwards to the turbo, then run the exhaust back under that, taking up less room than stock manifold? (apart from in the front of the bay). Intercooler inside the bumper, job done.

    Still would rather have 500 supercharged ponies than 600 turbo ones.

    Not doubting you at all Pete, You are a legend when it comes to V8s now..

    but why is it showing in the link as a LS1 turbo but showing the 6.0 LS2 in the final picture??

    and a Supercharger can fetch as much power as that, A year ago or soemthng TV had a few pages on a Devil Yellow Dynomotive VT Monaro, it was the 5.7 ls1 pushing out 655bhp with a vortech supercharger running 15psi @ 7000rpm ....

    got the poster on my bedroom wall
