Twins allow for smaller turbos to be used, with a better overall match.

The reason I was thinking twins was because the exhaust piping going off the manifolds has that whacky Y-pipe setup with integral cats, and it was a PITA to get at when we pulled the engine from our donor. I didn't think there was enough space to fit a big enough single with a large enough pipe to it.

As far as twice the work, it does add a bit more piping to the engine bay for the boost tubes.

Choice is yours, either option works.

The rings are bad and its a smoker! I could have kept topping it off but didnt want to worry about being stranded in the middle of nowhere. Plates are expired and its just been sitting for a few years didnt want to work out any bugs while on a road trip.

Dang. I wish that my car just needed engine work. If that was mine, I'd go grab a 5.3L from a junkyard, and swap an injected 5.3L into it in a jiffy. I absolutely cannot wait to see more pictures!

Hey, that works too! I'd be willing to accept that as well!

4G63's are easy once you have done 30000 of them. If you have questions, we have answers! :)

Holy hell! It's a 2-door post car!! That rocks even more than I originally thought! The skirts are awesome too, I have some for mine, but haven't put them on because of lack of paint / body work / uhhh, everything else.

Tell me more - how long have you had it? Did you buy it like that or do a bunch of work to it? What does it look like under the hood - I must know more!!
