Is a twin turbo an easy setup as that engine is huge and your just fitting it in a normal impreza so there won't be a lot of space

Soon see

Appear to have lots of space just behind head lights

I do think it would be awesome on a just a gt35r but engine and throttle body all lays out nice for twin.

Also able at some point for example to fit two 400-450bhp turbos, a 900bhp turbo maybe harder to find space for.

I am going to use internal wastegated subaru turbos so space should be okay, main issue to plan is route for downpipes.

Also the space in normal rotated positio is same as flat 4 so another option is a turbo each side

Twin gt35r's with .63 housing on boost early and loads of power Do the 3ltr blocks keep pulling like the 2.35's or do they make it more torquey similar to a 2.5?

Crank is same throw as 2litre with 97mm bore so should be like 2.2 with two extra cylinders.

Although rods for this engine are custom length and longer.
So hoping similar delivery to 2.35

Gt35 pair of too big.

Treating each bank as a separate engine you wouldnt put a gt35r .63 on 1.65litre.

Heads are currently being worked by SMG. Along with cams, valves, springs etc and cam profile similar to my 2.35 which I love so I hope it has peak power at circa 7000rpm etc

Coming together nice Simon, very impressed so far, can't wait to see the finished article.

Do you have any pics of the work you dud to trim the existing wings and arches for the ABW arches, either in this one or the green one? My arches arrived from Darren last week and am eager to install just not sure how much and where to trim fir correct clearance?

coming together quite fast looking forward to more trick parts later on

what overall weight do you think you will have saved??
or shall I wait till the end of the tread. ill be interesting to see how much it weighs in at, and the comparable power to weight between the green and new 2 dr cars you have

Sod making it shine. You'll have to keep it that way then = grief. Powdercoat it with a chrome look powder or crackle black imo.
