I think what he meant was the turbo did not fit with the T56 in there...i could be wrong.

That's what I was saying. I did use the T56 gearbox.

Car has been sent to the exhaust shop to get custom 1" 7/8 headers and a dual 3" system and twin varex mufflers to shut it up when I want to cruise around as a sleeper

Why not go with a big twinscrew or roots set up? They will fit for sure! Just maybe a better hood

They create too much heat. They're good for the first few pulls but then heat soak becomes an issue. This info is coming from someone i know that went that route and was bothered by it.

Not only that they are hard to drive with those on them. A 1900kg Commodore here with them is rubbish cause they just have so much instant power that they just smoke tyres without even trying with 15% throttle. Yes that can be cool but still not going to be fast in the corners. A big N/A LSX will make around the 600-650rwhp here and 1000ft/lb or torque all around 5000rpm. It will feel like an animal.

My Ride: cars older than you

When the big engine gets here (440ci LSX) it is going to get individual throttle bodies
