    twin turbo TT

    I've got a 230bhp Turbo Tecnics engine but I want more power and was wondering whats involved in twin turboing it. What difference would using a 2.9 crank be.

    Sell it and twin turbo a 24v cossie version instead, wont cost any extra and you'll get oodles more power.

    Why twin turbo if your current one supplies enough air? There'd be twice as much plumbing to do. If you want more your talking money as your motor is stock inside. You'd need to lower the compression and have decent pistons etc. You could then run lots more boost. This will then determine if you need to go twin turbo or not. Fitting a 2.9 crank into a 2.8 is a real ball ache, just buy a 2.9 and turbocharge that! If your wanting lots of power the 24v is an option if you want to stay ford. Budget around 5k for a good tt version of that. Depending on what your fitting it into RV8's are cheap, horrible but cheap. Just an idea.

    Single turbo on an internally standard 24v with aftermarket ecu will easily make well over 300bhp with no expensive bits so it seems a bit pointless using the 2.8 or the 2.9 as the 24v will drop straight in in its place. No need to spend 5 grand unless you want lots more power.

    More techy info and owners of turbo/supercharged 24v's over on www.fordpower.org.uk

    2.8 fuelling is at the very limit on my single turbo now,so would no way be up to a twin turbo setup, you would need to megasquirt it.
