    The BW t6’s spool very fast and are a great bargain.

    I haven’t ruled out a T6 completely, but I’m going to give a T4 hell thats for sure. If the it just doesn’t work out, then I’ll have to get back to the drawing board and go
    From there. I got such a good deal on my 480 that I can’t just let it go to waste. We will see what this season brings, I have a coup different turbine housings I’m going to try out and go from there.

    No doubt you can make great power on a single T4, just saying while in mock up phase I’d grab a T4 to T6 adapter and a friend with a T6 to see if you can leave room to swap in a T6 if needed in the future. Usually all the supporting parts can stay and it’s just adjusting the downpipe and start of cold side.

    Good to know, I’ll have to grab a charger from the shop and see what I’m working with. Thanks!

    Nice setup! CGFAB did my hot side for my twin turbo 2v. I should have just brought him the car to get both hot and cold side done. He was great to work with and did very nice work.

    Thanks! Ya man, every CG Kit I’ve seen has looked and fit great, so it was a no brainer to go with him!

    Quick update..motor and trans has made its way into the car. Changing the plan a little bit, decided to go with Air to Air instead of the Air to Water setup I had originally planned to run. I so I have a bunch of A2W parts for sale...if anyone is interested. The J2Fab setup is extremely well built and would be perfect for someone looking to retain the factory IC system.

    I will be posting the parts for sale in the Classified as well later on.

    Will have the J2Fab inlet for sale (brand new)
    90mm Accufab throttlebody
    I have 2 stock cobra Intercoolers that I’m selling
    03-04 cobra lower Intake manifold powdered satin black.

    But back to the car..

    Motor went in great, TH400 fit like a dream with the JW bell and Stifflers crossmember.
    So I decided to do a manual brake and manual steering conversion, I went with Strange 4-piston front brakes, Flaming River 15:1 Quick Ratio steering conversion kit, Racecraft 2” drop spindles and a set of strange front struts to compliment the front coilover conversion.

    Going to begin wiring the Holley in this week, hoping to have the car basically finished, aside from cold side piping and downpipe. I will post pics as I go!

    Out of curiosity, what made you stick with factory COP's? Where does the alternator go with that intake setup? Like the build so far.
