This is a picture for reference of the location I am thinking and an example(on another car obviously)

That's a hydro lock waiting to happen.

If I drove through a lake maybe. My turbo would be a bit higher than that pic of the xr8.
Having a wet filter is fine. Having it submerged is a different story.

You also have the option of water/air intercooler(s) which can be mounted anywhere.
George is running the serpentine system with a paxton.

Yeah it won't work the serpentine system I have off a pre-au xr8. I have too much money invested in it(new ac compressor, custom ac lines, new power steering pump, custom ps lines, alternator etc etc) to change it.
Adding a supercharger to this front running system will look like this, which just won't fit the tiny 65 engine bay.

I have space to mount the air to air intercooler, it's just getting the pipes from the turbos to the front of the radiator

well well well - yep your fitting in very well. Twin turbos are the go.

Another consideration is to mount them in the rear of the car - long pipes but it has been done so it is an option. I would prefer to mount them high and toward the front of the car. Think better location both sides. Move water tank and what ever else to the rear/boot. You can also cut into the sides of the engine bay forward (next to battery location) to gain more space. You kind of reverse the exhaust manifold to be pointing forward. I would be looking at a victor jr like EFI manifold then plum both sides to above the TB.

If none of that is ok then you have vertical space - get a Weiand174 blower sitting on top.

This is going to be excellent.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

Nice. I want to follow this. Did you every have a look at Kotic? Matt and Sherie's turbo mustang? I would look at mounting them under the front guards? Just a thought

Will the current internals cope with the boost?

Yup, the vertical space is why I was looking at the kenne bell. It can be modified to allow the use of an air to air intercooler, which is a must for me.

I have seen the rear mounts, but there is no space back there in the 65. I have seen one guy do it however he cut and modified the floor to suit. Then all that extra pipework....man it's giving me headaches thinking about it.

In the front of the engine bay is obviously the golden solution, but I seriously have no space. I may be able to get it in the passenger side up front, but no way on the drivers side with my power steering and ac setup. Then I'd need reverse manifolds, plus all the extra heat in the engine bay. The only way I could do it would be to get a compact march serpentine system, and that won't happen.

So I feel the only solution for forced induction is turbos near the transmission, or a kenne bell sc.

I just need to try and find someone in sydney who is willing to play around to see if the fit is possible.

Judging by the foxbody guys in the states(every second one is supercharged or turbo'd), the internals seem to be fine with about 8-10psi up to the 400rwhp, with a good safe tune. Obviously driving habits will play a part too. There are guys running 450-500 on stock blocks, but it seems to be a matter of time with most of them.

Yeah I have seen that, again the space in my engine bay is a lot less with my serpentine system. I don't think they had AC either(could be wrong). The had to move the alternator down near the sump, plus they don't even run an exhaust. Plus heat in the engine bay is a big thing too, I'm driving this thing to work and back.

Under the guards is hectic, you'd need the exhaust to come into the guards, into the turbo, then back through the guards. On the drivers side it's not possible anyway as it will interfere with the power steering box, braking system etc.

I don't want to reinvent anything here either, the car just came of a long build, and I'm happy with the parts and how everything is working together so I don't want to go ripping things out. Just trying to find an 'easy' way of adding a bit more power while changing minimal things.

Yeah nitrous is the "easy way", but it's not legal at all in NSW. Bottle must be disconnected.

Husky are you mechanically minded? Like I have done with some of the other fellas, we can probably have a go at my place. I have the welders etc.
But no way would I want to do it on my own.

What about a weiand kit? Or will they not work with your serpentine either?

If you look at a serpentine system such as the one I recommended for Cage - it is rather compact. Lots of room for turbos up front. Always thought one of those ebay kits were so cheap but would be an interesting build. The motor will be fine with mild boost.

Doing the mods with Hybrid (and the boys) would be a great idea. Though no posts on diff work I see Poke

Hanging the turbos lower in that gap area sounds ok - just need to get the intake higher and the oil lines working correctly. So go for it.

The Weiand 174 is a good option I think.

It spaces out the pulley for the super charger. See below
