Default Autotech Twin Turbo Kit for Boss GTP, GT, XR8

Hi all,
we have recently completed and are now installing the Twin Turbo kit for the Boss engines.
As you can see from the attached images the kit's installation is very clean and tidy. The pipework, turbochargers and exhaust system and expertly engineered to ensure maximum flow and least resistance. The end result is a stunning 420rwkw on 9psi of boost. The kit has plenty of potential for future power upgrades should the owner wish to build their engine to cope with well over 500rwkw. The owner of the pictured car is very happy with the result stating that he is having extreme difficulty coping with the car's current power level.

If you have any questions about the kit and what we can do for your Boss-equipped car, please do not hesitate to pm or give the office a call at your convenience.
Cheers,

Fantastic work. Nice to see another turbo set up for the BOSS. What's the low down power like? Any prices established yet for this kit as shown intercooled?

Congradulations Spiro, on your new release of the Boss twin turbo kit. This is great news for the Boss owners looking to make more power. Does the twin turbo kit comply with the ADR regulations?

What a wicked setup!!!

Is that a scurrage pump mounted on the trans??

What size turbo's are you running?
Just curious, what is the reason for the intercooler layout? Why feed hot air from top?
Cheers

I can see alot of Boss owners lining up for this... I know I would.

The donor car, what is it and what transmission does it have? How much beefing up does the drivetrain need? poor cv's

I'd like to see this in a ute with mini-tubs. Eight second potential????

Hi Guys

That was a custom install on that vehicle. The drive ability is like factory with a lot more grunt. At this point costing has not been set, as it is all by custom install and not in kit form.

Hi Spiro,

If someone drove in and said he wanted the same setup as this car what sort of coin would they be looking at.

The kit has not been ADR complied. The vehicle displayed here has been engineered with and emission tested. It has been certified by an engineer which makes it legal in NSW.

The reason why we positioned the outlet to the bottom is because the intercooler is cooler there than the top. Due to the bumper bar desighn, there is more air flow to the bottom of the cooler. The second reason was that we didnt have to cut up the front of the vehicle to suit plumbing.

At this point it has not been worked out. As a custom install it is a dearer way to go. Give me a call, to discuss this if you wish on Monday, at the workshop on (02)9897 1378.

This install, was carried out to a brand new BF GTP manual. The differential, drive shafts and gearbox are standard factory fitted components. We did upgrade the clutch to this vehicle. The drive shafts, are probably the week link at the moment. We left them standard to see how they cope with the torque.

Spiro, once again you never cease to amaze Ford owners in what you can do for them, be it a XR6t or GT.

Do hope to see that car run down the 1/4 to see what times it does, especially in a manual

Cheers Pete.

PS: You think Geoff will be worried about this car of he saw it on the street

Spiro, saw the car in the shop looked excellent, if only it was available a year ago, sigh.

XRDrift - It would be a decent run but being a manual still gives me the edge ;)

It wouldn't be anywhere near as vilolent as a similar powered xr6T tho would it, i'd have to think it'd get the power down alot more smootly than a 4oorwkw 6T. Either way it'd be a drivers race.

Yes they are a lot more graceful to drive smooth all the way through, when you have the power of the V8 there already the lag is notably a lot less than its I6 cousin.
This TT Boss being a manual would be a real handful..

Heh wasnt meant to start a V8 vs 6T debate ;)

Not slamming the V8 the observation was more related to Auto vs Manual in similar powered cars.

That being said I would have had a TT boss if the kit was available when I first started adding power to my 'T'. Too much time and $ spent on it now to change.

Hi XRQTOR

You are spot on with your comment. you do not require high boost levels on large capacity engines to make power and torque. A sooped up 6 turbo, with 20psi of boost certainly feels alot more peakier than the Boss with 9 psi of boost.
The installation of a Yella Terra supercharger on the Boss with 10 psi feels pretty snappy on the road. We just finished an intercooler and boost upgrade last week to a forum members vehicle. It went from 302kw up to 360kw at the wheels. The response from the positive displacement super charger is second to none.
I agree, it would be a drivers race.

Cheers Spiro

Sorry if I 'implied' a Boss vs Turbo 6 slag fest, it was more of a turbo 6 auto up against a TT boss Manual, your right MG, its a manual vs auto thing.

Either way, the car would be a handfull but a pleasure to drive.

Since you raised it Spiro, how would you compare this TT set up against the car you just did with the Yella Terra Supercharger, intercooled with 10-11psi?

The Yella Terra super charger is alot better down low. From the moment you snap the throttle, the positive displacement supercharger, instantly responds with boost. With turbo's, they do need to spool up, depending on the size of course.
Small turbos can spool up early, but run out of puff at top end. Larger turbo's, spool up later but have good mid range and top end. Its all about personal choice and what you are trying to acheive. I like both super charging and turbo charging vehicles.

Many thanks Spiro. That's what I suspected but as you say it all good.
