Default FS: Absurdflow parallel twin turbo kit

Kit is used, previous owner frt_fun purchased from TurboTim but never installed. I installed the kit and ran it for 30 miles.

Kit includes the manifold, turbos, dp, stainless steel braided oil feed and drain lines with a/n fittings, the charge "y-pipe", and filters for the turbos.

I am in the process of removing everything from my car, so in a few days i can get pics if necessary. There are already videos of this kit in action on youtube so you can reference there. Only modification I have made was that I had a wideband o2 bung welded on the dp. Tig'ed to match the rest of the dp.

Asking 1200.

I only put 30 miles on my rebuilt engine before it died of oil starvation. The turbos work perfectly fine. Im selling because I am looking into a built motor. This kit is only good for up to 300hp.

Can you give me your email and ill just email them to you. Ill have to take them in the morning.

Also, im not sure about your question. This includes the manifold, 2 garrett gt1548 turbos, the downpipe, and almost all the necessary fittings, lines, and filters.

Pics of it when I sold it, not sure what it looks like now or what it includes but it shouldn't be too far off. I do know FRT_FUN reangled the intercooler Y pipe and I had just one O2 bung in the downpipe cause all I run is 1 WBO2:

Kit is the same as how I received it from frt, other than I had the intercooler y-pipe re-angled for my intercooler routing.

I agree with frt in that I wish I couldve had this in my car. Car was being prepped to go to the dyno, and my tuner found that 2 of my pistons had bad rings. It is a really cool setup and I think that all the resources and build documentation is worth something...thanks to tim.

Oil starvation? How did that happen? Something dumb, or something that we should watch out for?

When I was rebuilding my motor, I had one machine shop turn the crank and clean my block. well they "cleaned" it by just varsol bathing the surfaces free of the typical 100k mi grime. They were supposed to thoroughly go through the oil ports in the block and crank. So, I put new bearings and rings in and go to driving it and I only get 30 miles before the ------- #1 cylinder rod bearing has melted to the rod cap.

This kit is ready to bolt-on and be boostin.
