BTW The aluminum bezel from FBM is optional and not needed, I added it later and it really turned out great. For that I had to under mount the boot and drill holes. Not everyone’s cup of tea with the precious counsel LOL

I think it looks awesome...

I have so many questions. you have inspired me to follow in your twin turbo steps.

do you have a parts list? Do you feel comfortable sharing that information?
are your turbo's ball bearing?
what cams, and engine internals did you go with?

would you get that transmission again over a regular built up 4 speed?

what a great thread, props on your build and thank you for sharing. very cool stuff.

Sorry, somehow I missed seeing this, journal bearing turbos, cams are 98 cobra degreed for the application, the engine was forged crank billet manley rods, arp thru out forged pistons, one of the rods has since then failed, rebuilding it with molnar power adder rods,
The transmission was a disaster, terrible experience with freddy brown, im in the process of swapping to the 6r80 and repairing my engine over the winter.
The car was a beast pretty much no lag as would be expected, from a stop just mashing it, it would smoke the tires 1st thru 3rd lol ac worked. It'll be much more enjoyable with a automatic trans again, as far as how the car performed I was extremely happy with it

Not like you didn't throw good parts in her from the start. You get any answers from Manley as to why the billet rod failed?

I will eventually have to move to a 6R80 myself in the future. When you get done that's gonna be a potent combination.

Life gets busy sometimes!!! its all good,

thanks for the reply.


Stay motivated

the last dsm I engine I bought had incorrect bearing sizing and galled the crank and mains, the company is no longer in business but I did a tear down after only 8 thousand miles So it can be frustrating but I always know how much better it will be the next time I work on something.


I ended up getting 99 cobra cams, i bought 4.10's and plan on going with a tremec 6 speed XL with the gears- 2.97 2.10 1.46 1.00 .80 .63

and twin 62mm turbos with the nice bearings. 18-21 lbs boost on pump is the aim.

Unfortunately I purchased the rods used, one time only mistake on my part, I can only imagine when they've been thru, they probably sold then for a reason.
Thanks sir, I'm hoping all this aggravation is worth it in the end

Sounds like u have a plan, manual will be fun, be sure you size your turbos well, I dont think my car would be much fun with a manual with its current setup, I'm running a 3800 stall and it needs it

The reason I went with a new shortblock from MMR. It came with a warranty and is built to handle 950 to the wheels....

Same here, I think. Although Seneca has far too many quality hours into making it to quit due to mechanical failure. I can understand going either way
Good luck with the upgraded build!

I recently met a prospective Client. They had fallen on some "bad luck".

He went on and on about the system and how no matter what he was being victimized. How he just wanted to give up.

When he finished. I stood up and said I want to shake your hand while I tell you this. I shook his hand, looked him in the eye and told him;
"Everything you said is true, never give up for it has a 100% failure rate.".

He replied - "I am not going to give up!".
