Sounds awesome but why only intercool the smaller turbo? Why choose to intercool that one over the larger turbo? Best of luck on the project

Wow this came out of nowhere.
I have a few questions.
What size are your turbos?
Are you going to be making log manifolds or modifying the stock exhaust manifolds?
And finally the whopper..
Are you going standalone?

edited for more careful reading..

If this setup works efficiently the SLEeper may start to run circles around the Zilla.

Just my two cents, but I think if you ran the right sized turbo, you could get the best of both worlds with just one. Granted, it wouldn't be as cool as saying you're twin turboed, but with the STS system the Intense kinda used to sell, Mike'* GP is gettin' full boost by 3 grand. With the low end torque the S1'* have, they'd probably handle their own down low, and when the turbo spools up, look out!

Wow... and it'* not even April 1st I figured this was a joke!

I hope everything comes together for you, Bill. You seem to plan things quite nicely, so I don't imagine you'll hit any big roadblocks. This should get very interesting.

BTW Mike... what is standalone?
