questions on exaust housing


Sponser needed
i am currently building a twin turbo small block for a tubbed gn, i have made my own headers for the combe with 1 9/16 in primarys, the engine should make 900-1200 hp, i purchased 2 te-60 turbos, when i got them i noticed .58 a/r ratio exaust housings, they were in bill andersons car, if anybody could give some insight as to any problems i might have, or what i should expect on the first runup would be greatly appreciated.

Well, I'll bet you can spool those with a 2k stall converter...other than that, you may be effectively limited as to what boost you can run before you start getting astronomical backpressure. I think I would call John Craig or someone and buy some bigger A/R turbine housings, at least.
That has been a while, I cant even remember who bought them! They will spool VERY VERY fast with a V8, the problem is keeping the boost down below 25# or so because of tremendous back pressure, which can cause head gasket failures too, those turbos in that config. will want 30# of boost PLUS. The throttle response will be similar to a carbureted car. I would suggest you swap to .69 or .81 hsgs.
