New project!

Well its come to the time when i do another crazy project.

After the success i had with my GTV Turbo and upon purchasing a nice shiny GT v6 i need more umph!

Ive resorted to the fact yes i do need boost back in my life! having recently stripped a v6 and when i found what they pack inside my eyes lit up! Perfect internals for the desired boost!

After alot of digging ive come to a conclusion i need not one but 2x 166 v6 turbo's. (looks to be a very very hard task to find)

If i cant find these ill be using the turbos from a 406 HDI twin turbo and ill build my own manifolds again.

If anyone can help with 166 Turbos and manifolds i will forever be in debt!

I dont plan to take the GT off the road until i have everything ready to bolt on. as i only have the one car now cant go without the GT like i did on the GTV project!

Also Q4 may be on the cards as well if anyone would be kind to shed some light on the 159 rear setup? ive yet to get under one!

Oh and one last very tasty upgrade it involves a air compressor and paddles at he steering wheel

Garret T3 Turbo (0.6bar)
Front Mount Intercooler
V6 Injectors
40mm lower fully polybushed
Full custom stainless with twin ally bike cans.

166 V6 Turbo?

There is no such thing. I think the only V6 turbo built was the 2.0 in the GTV. I will be looking forward to updates Me gusta V6 Turbo's!

Oh, after googling: There is no 166 v6 Turbo in Holland My bad!
