Twin Turbo 4.0L

Never heard of it before...but I like it! I am a bigger fan of the SPAL ranger with the 6.0 diesel that does 205!

I'm guessing a new hood and at least a new intake manifold after 15lbs on stock internals

Bah, the gasket would be the first thing to blow. :)

Considering Doug is running a high 13/low 14 with ONE BLOWER....two turbos and a 13.5 is kinda pokey....

I think mid 13s is pretty dang good myself. It is a one off so it isn't perfect. The SOHC wasn't exactly built with twin turbos in mind. They're probably keeping that in mind for safety sake. BTW, twin turbo supras, 3000 gts, and 300zxs are all slower than that with their factory twins.

And sometimes it doesn't matter how many blowers you're running. Why do you think all the supra guys try to convert to singles?

On the SOHC, if you look at the timeslip page on RPS, you'll see that no supercharged truck has reached 13s. Orion hit 13s but he needed nitrous(and it still wasn't as fast as the TT4.0), off the juice I believe he ran low, low 14s. The explorer express guinea pic Nick Blakely is still in the 13s as well.

Supra motors are INSANE. Street cars making 800+ RWHP on the stock block and 6 speed transmission. They convert to a big single and run big boost numbers. Ranger's aren't exactly bullet proof motors (3 or 4L) and you would be hard pressed to run more than 9 or 10 psi on a stock bottom end motor...

Doug's running 12 on his...

In Rangers, head gaskets are normally the first fuse in the circuit. That's why when I buy the Whipple, copper gaskets are going in simultaneously.

yes there would be more power but hte 15psi will place about the sam estreess on the motor nad the bottom end is the same parts betweenthe 2 motor witht he SOHC having better caps with the oil pan acting as a stud girdle.

I am a speed junky and I am not impressed. Maybe I am developing a money obsession but I see thousands and thousands of dollars in twin turbos enough to buy a used mustang cobra which about the same speed or faster. 13 seconds I laugh now if his slip said 10 or 11 seconds I would be impressed, or if he was running 13 seconds naturally asperated, but twin turbos and only 13 come on.
