Currently running street port and Pettit ECU. I will upgrade the 2ndarys to 1300's (Don't want 2nd fuel rail and resistors) and Walbro fuel pump. I am shooting for 425rwhp but would settle for 400rwhp. I want low end torque and wont boost more then 1bar on 91 octane (CA pump). I want to build an ultimate street sports car and not a had core track car.



I can't afford the GT40R this year and it will cost me money to put the twins back on, so if I can do this cheap enough why not do this now and who knows maybe not even move up to the 40R.



Does anyplace allready make a kit for this or can I just use a T3 kit?

If not, how much is a custom manifold and down pipe? ...how hard to get it made?

(looking to keep it under $500 for both)



Is 50lbs/min enough power for 400-425rwhp? Click "here"



How much to replace A/R .70 with A/R 1.06? ...is .70 too small even with a street port? Will 1.06 delay spool (AKA: increase lag) too much?

Yer links is busted.



4 threads below this one is a lengthy and detailed discussion of the pros and cons of the turbo you are looking for. Including input from someone who has made many kits using this turbo.

^ and the 40R, which I want but not my topic.

It also doesn't answer my manifold & DP questions.

Did you read ANY of it?



Sean, AKA Zero R in that thread, is A-Spec, who makes almost all the 'kits' for the 35R. The connection you were SUPPOSED to draw was that perhaps he could provide you with a manifold and downpipe.

yup, it said the 35/40 was the same thing as the 40R and not 35R.



You're still not helping me get any answers on the manifold and down pipe but annoying as it may be at least your giving me free bumps.

Where does it say this?



Read your own quote for christ sakes, I already answered where you could find a manifold and downpipe.



Are we all speaking English here?

Yeah, ZeroR/A-Spec allready sent me an email yesterday and his reply on the other thread was informative. I'm waiting for a quote from him on a kit for me.

Ask YOURSELF where 90% of your driving is going to REALLY be not where others tell you it should be, if it is nothing more than stop light to stop light a 35R is hard to beat. Spools great, hits hard, and is a blast.
Which is perfect untill a supercharged Z06 kicks my butt then it's upgrade to 40R time!



And as far as what I got out of it a 35/40 is a combination of a 35R and a 40R and is "not" the exact same thing. I've also seen the 35/40 and do not like how foward it is at all! I love the 40R kit A-Spec makes (low & rearward). That is what I want in a kit but I just can't afford it.



So basically I "want" the A-Spec GT40R but can't afford it. I can settle for the GT35R instead of slapping the twins back on and waiting another year. I don't want to get stuck with this, not use it, spend money I can't afford and then have to sell it prolly for less money.



Thanks to 94Touring, Igy and JSpecRacer7 for their help with this. I'll also be keeping close tabs on ArtGuy's project as the 62-1 seems like what I want as well (an RX6 + 50hp and $2k less).
