    Default Twin Turbo Mark VIII kit

    How many folks would really be interested in a TT kit for the mark VIII? I am thinking of making one that will be good for 600 hp or so. It will fit gen 1 or gen 2 but will have to have a cobra intake swap. We are about done with the kit on my car so we will be bored soon...

    You're evil. }(

    Wouldn't forged internals be mandatory for something like this?

    Sure, after a few other people have had it and can vouch for it lasting 50 or 60 thousand miles.

    That is sick Joe. What about a single that would run the same price as a sc?

    Just keep the boost down to 8psi or so and there is no need for internal mods. A single might be an option. I jsut bought my first Gen 2 mark VIII and am trying to get the ball rolling on breaking ground on a 40 X 60 shop. I will use it as a template car. I would think sometime next year I will have a turbo on one of the mark VIII's.

    This sounds like just what I was looking for}( Just got my Mark VIII and I am loving it so far. Just needs some more power is all at this point and I don't feel like doing all the RD to throw a turbo on just yet.

    Joe,
    how complete of a kit are talking about here ?
    Tubing + headers only also possible ?
    I think you should consider a 2nd gen intake also, as some people don't want to change it out and it seems to bring ok results with s-trims.
    Not a big difference in the TB location anyway.

    Also what K-member options ? I assume not the stock one ...
