    Wish I knew you were doing this. Just dumped an aborted LSX project 6.2 fully built for boost complete motor from harness to subframe. With tons of stuff to do the swap. Would have loved to sell it for something like this. It ended up going into an RX7. I still have a few things, so let me know if you need anything. I have a very nice set of C6 manifolds which when flipped are awesome for mounting turbos they both merge in the center and give you some mounting options.

    Honestly it came down to time. It was my personal project 67 El Camino my dad gave me with I was 16 with a draw through Twin Rajay set up on it and I wanted to bring into the 21st century with a Twin GT35R LSX, but between the N54 upgrades, the industrial turbos, and trying to build stage 3 I honestly didn't have enough time in the day and figured I could start again at a later date.

    Needless to say, we have been BURIED in work at the shop, and haven't had much time to work on the E28. I am also trying to get the E30 done for race season, so time is extremely limited.


    We pulled the motor back out of the car, swapped cam, pushrods, and a few bits. Headers are making some progress as well, and we also are working on final welding the new firewall and trans tunnel. Initially was going to do a twin turbo setup, but have decided on V-Banded headers, and a single 80mm turbo. So, disregard the T4 collector Click here to enlarge.
