    Are you talking about Gas Station vendors (Shell/Sunoco stations) or large scale distributors that'll deliver 55 gallon drums?

    Interesting perspective. In a perfect world yes, turbo size or fuel wouldn't stress the bottom end any different. But keep this in mind, it's proven that e85 has cooling properties which lowers cylinder temps and higher octane. Higher octane protects pistons. If you said, fuel has no bearing on crank/rod, I would agree.

    Turbo size is a completely different animal. Quicker spool, more torque usually equals more stress on rods. It's been proven on 4g63s and other four cylinders. Not to mention, it takes less boost to make the power on a big turbo than it does with twins. You and I both know, less boost equals less heat from the compressor.

    I really don't think RBs would totally stretch out an N54 stock bottom end unless of a tune failure, lubrication failure, or an excess of an additional power added(N20). I would say if Vargas goes crazy with this twin set up he's building and the turbos are on par with GT28RS', those will stretch out a stock bottom end. I haven't done too much reading on what he's using for cores. RB's are awesome awesome turbos and I'm considering them for an upgrade, however they are stock chassis turbos and can only go so far.

    This is a great discussion.

    You guys are talking about same parts and same power. I was only talking about same power. To hit the same numbers on 93 vs E85 you would either need larger turbos, head work, different head gasket, etc or you would need to be dialing the E85 aggression back. Apples to apples at constant power I would think there would be no difference. Sure if you build for 700hp on 93 and then switch to E85 and still target 700hp you will be stressing the bottom end less. But really, who does that?

    Updated Pictures

    We finally got done with the installation of the turbo kit. We cranked it up and everything sounds good. There were no fluid leaks or vacuum leaks.We're going to do the tuning next week and we will post a video after we finish.

    Damnnn! Cant wait for the tuning to begin and videos to be posted Click here to enlarge Great work. The kit looks nice. What size piping is that where the two banks join together?

    holy crap, that looks awesome. I know it's probably been said before. This IS the BMW version of the 2jz. Topmount looks like it was just meant to be.

    Any reason you chose not to go with a twin scroll? The extra work would have been very minimal and the benefits are very tangible.

    Very fast progress indeed.

    I have a question: What is the benefit of a top-mount aside from easy access to turbo-swaps? What are the draw-backs? What platforms use top-mounts successfully?

    I personally think a top mount looks better. It makes it alot easier to service the turbo and make changes if you want to. 2JZ's are well known for their top mount.

    Thanks for the reply! Too bad the engine is tilted, as it takes up some room you could have had for the turbo.
