First, I wanted to thank Dave of WERKS for sponsoring me with the Race Intercooler and 60mm Tial wastegate.
I also wanted to give thanks to the following for some feedbacks and insights about the compound turbo set-up planning:
- Dave of DDM
- Marc of Boost logic – you can youtube him (marc compound turbo). He has a very successful compound turbo set-up.
- Kevin Jewel – owner of 1991 Eagle Talon compound turbo set-up (T3 50 trim and T6 s475 w/ 1.06 AR) – 8.97sec @ 156mph Thank you for all the step-by-step answers that you provided me!!! You have been my on-line mentor!!!
Finally, I wanted to give thanks to my my main sponsors/tuner:
Baldturbofreak aka BTF
BTF racing will sponsor me for this build. Rick helped me out choose the turbos for my compound turbo set-up, and provided me with the turbos. He will custom fabricate me a tubular manifold and the compound turbo set-up.
Rick is also my main tuner. He will install the compound turbo set-up, and will relocate TONS of stuff to fit this compound turbo set-up.
Ryan of Nitrofreeze
for full-sponsorship of the cryogenic treatment of all my parts!!!
Vince of burnsstainless.com
for sponsorship of all the stainless steel parts for this build.
Late last year, since SMG had already successfully twincharged the cobalts, by having a rear mount a turbo…………I asked myself, how about adding another turbo on my set-up and mount it at the rear?
So Fred and I started talking about mounting a k04 turbo at the rear, and do a sequential turbo set-up. The k04 turbo will spool fast, and will help have a more responsive car. But after talking to Dave of DDM, Shabby, and Marc, the plan of having a sequential set-up will not work-out as planned and will be very complicated to run smoothly. So I scratched that the plan right away.
So here’s the compound turbo set-up flow:
Exhaust manifold > small turbo (turbine) and powers the engine > excess exhaust gases goes to dp/wastegate > > big turbo (turbine) > big turbo compressor > compressed/cold air goes to small turbo (compressor inlet) > small turbo (compressor outlet) > Intercooler > engine
We are hoping to boost this set-up at around 28-35psi, since the RACE Block can handle it without even sweating. Race block can easily handle 1000 whp. If things go smoothly, the set-up will flow at least 80 lb/min …………and will produce at least 600 whp. It will be an ultimate street machine that will be competitive in auto crossing, drag racing, and road racing.
Will spool from 2800 rpm all the way to 8000 rpm
GT2871R will be boosting 20psi and GT4094R will be boosting at least 8psi (up to 15psi).
Total boost pressure will be 28-35psi.
BTF will start working on the project mid of August. It will take him about a week to finish everything, then sent all the hot sides to SWAINTECH for ceramic coating
SMG will be working on the head, transmission, all necessary relocations, and everything will start mid August 2010.
BTF and SMG collaboration!
We are hoping to finish the whole project and tune the beast before the end of October 2010.
There will be lots of trial and error during the build, and same goes to the tuning. But that’s normal to every build, especially on a very crazy build like this. But whatever it takes, we will complete this project!!!
LIPSTICK will strive to be the first LNF engine in the 600hp range that will be a daily driver. FIRST EVER compound turbo LNF set-up!!!!
