Which one is the intake cam? Just wanting to see the bigger lube used. Man, I can't wait to install mine.

longer unit is the intake cam.

And yes, that bigger triangular piece at the end of the cam is the "big fuel lobe".


lemme know how much whp you get once you install your new cams! Im very interested with the whp increase you'll get, since you just had your car dynoed recently.

good luck!

I'm going to wait to install the GT2871r, my stock turbo is maxed out and don't think I'll yield much with swapping the cams. Bigger(turbo) and better times are to come for all of us this year. How exciting!

Yeah... I'm kind of going at this backwards on my build it seems like since the EFR isn't out yet. I'm going to have a ported head and cams, but with the stock turbo for a while until the EFR is out, so it's going to be interesting to see what happens there. lol

Hopefully I won't be pushing the turbo into choke or something. I don't feel I have enough information though on how the head and cams will affect the VE to be able to run any realistic numbers. If I had to just guess, I'll probably have a crazy mid range torque spike followed by a sharp drop off towards the top end as I start to spin the fool out of the turbo. lol

Dave from DDMWorks has told me that porting the head and polish does yield good results. You probably won't yield much on the stock turbo but you should be able to see a smoother powerband, through the rpms. Once you get the EFR, you will see an increase in everything.

Yeah. Vince has done some work on some Kappas with the DDMWorks ported heads and he said too that he was able to get some significant mid-range gains right off the bat since the engine didn't bog as much. I'm not sure what turbo those customers had the head paired with though. I'm excited to see what it can do!

You can borrow my 2871 for a weekend once you get the engine in and we can see what it will do

Crazy build you have going, and very tight spacing to stuff those 2 turbos into. I know your probably sponsored by turbosmart but be careful on the bov, I've seen a few stems break and the valve ends up in your motor..

yeah, VERY tight. We might have a custom radiator (lay down)......and tons of relocation of other stuff.

thanks for the head's up!

NEW placement of big turbo in order to close the hood completely.

So far the only significant changes required for this to fit is a new raditor package., leaned forward and narrower.
moved fusebox
relocated power cables
and a torque arrester to limit engine rock to +/- 1/2"

the small turbo which is currently not tacked on the new set-up, will sit in front of the engine.

It will pull exhaust gas tangent off the collector and returns it right aorund the cam chain area in the pipe feeding the gt42.

Nice. Looks like there is plenty of room and the remainder of the exhaist plumbing should be easy enough. The challenge looks to be squeezing an intake and intermediate charge tube in there. It's no diesel truck.

the air intake, we'll just probably use an air filter and plug it in the big turbo's compressor inlet.


BTF wanted to do a 4" side fender exhaust to make fitting better. It will probably make the most power and better flow for the set-up.

But I chose not to, and just have a 4" dp that will be cramped to 3" at the end to fit the 3" exhaust. I know it will cause restriction and decrease power. But that's ok.

I dont think a side exhaust will be legal to drive around, and will be too loud. I dont want to be pulled by the cops left and right...

I still want to enjoy and drive my car on the streets, and not just at the track. And not be harrassed by cops
