I liked his B23 16V idea better-er.

Who really wants to put a lot of time and effort into a whipped out loosey goosey B230F piston slapper anyway?

Its off topic idle chat just like the same subject was the time before and the time before and the time before..

Let's see some metal welded, ON A INLINE 4..let's see ONE step toward something then it might be discssion and learning instead of dreaming about twin turbo V12s
You are absolutely right. I have a bias against people that think this forum is theirs and nobody else's. Does that ring a bell? Take a hint. I will be looking into more of these threads and banning those that don't want to play nice. You have no idea what goes on behind the scenes here. Your constant belittling of members here has gotten old, about 5 years ago. It's perfectly OK to think BIG.

The Owen's turbo setup that was pictured is the only thing that's piqued my interest in this thread. After some digging, it seems like a well rounded idea. Throttle response must be stupid.

Please, show me where I said "nay".

Are comments like these going to be tolerated?

Seems like you could start with an N/A exhaust manifold since the correct cylinders are are paired together.

I guess my hint flew right over your head. I gave you a few days to think about it, uninterrupted.

That's what I'm talking about. Thanks for posting this. Any source for more info? I'm curious to hear the builder's impressions of performance and get some details. For example are those stock 13Cs?

This is the car I mentioned earlier in the thread but I couldn't remember the name of the builder.





Two 16T's is what I remember and it made 600hp. Certainly a big power build with budget turbos. It's not going to be a fast spooling setup when each turbo is spun up by only two cylinders.

Brought this up a long time ago but "single turbo bias" meant it wasn't discussed further.
