Twin Turbo 5.0 featured in Car Craft

Be sure to pick up the August 2013 issue of Car Craft Magazine which features our Twin Turbo System on page 10 and 11.  Development of the kit is continuing and we hope to be announcing a solid date for availability soon. We have recently made the decision to go with cast stainless steel turbo manifolds which is is nice upgrade from the originally planned cast iron. The best part is, they will be cast in the USA.

Twin Turbo 5.0 Alpha 2 Boss 302 – Dyno and Videos http://twinturbo50.com/twin-turbo-5-0-alpha-2-boss-302-dyno-and-videos/ http://twinturbo50.com/twin-turbo-5-0-alpha-2-boss-302-dyno-and-videos/#comments Sun, 12 Aug 2012 21:49:48 +0000 kenbjonnes http://twinturbo50.com/?p=277 For the second test car to be built, we choose  a 2012 Boss 302 owned by Kyle.  Alpha 2 is the 3rd car to be built and the second manual car. This completes the development phase of the project and allows us to move to the production phase. Everything with Alpha 2 went extremely smooth and it made outstanding power tuned very conservatively for 91 octane fuel.

a21 Check out the beautiful fit and finish against the Competition Orange. All Twin Turbo 5.0 kits will come with Ceramic coated downpipes for heat protection. Also included are high quality silicone couplers, t bolt clamps and Tial Turbo hardware. Quality of components and fit and finish were some of our top priories during the design phase.  Below you will find a dyno video and a video of us driving it on the street so you can see how smooth and linear the power delivery is.

Next up is to get the kit into production. Once we are close to being able to ship kits, we will be building 2 Beta cars, another 2012 Boss 302 and a 2013 Mustang GT Auto.  This will allow us to identify any outstanding install issues before shipping out kits out to customers. Beta 2, the 2012 Boss 302 will also be a development car for Road Racing applications. This car will be used heavily on the road course.

 

Power output on 6 psi was 622 RWHP and 500 RWTQ.  At 8 psi power output was 642 RWHP and 535 RWTQ

Twin Turbo 5.0 Alpha 1 Mustang Hits the Track and heads Home http://twinturbo50.com/twin-turbo-5-0-alpha-1-mustang-hits-the-track-and-heads-home/ http://twinturbo50.com/twin-turbo-5-0-alpha-1-mustang-hits-the-track-and-heads-home/#comments Sun, 01 Jul 2012 18:27:38 +0000 kenbjonnes http://twinturbo50.com/?p=263 Before Sean made the trip down to pick up Alpha 1, we decided to take the car to Palm Beach International Raceway here in South Florida. While dyno numbers are a good indication of what you have, we didn’t build these cars to sit in the corner with a dyno sheet on the hood.  But if that is what you like, you won’t find a better looking engine bay than this one!  Sean was on a tight schedule flying down on a Saturday leaving the night before as the only time we could take it to the track.

We decided to run it on the VP MS109 fuel on 10 psi but take it easy on the transmission. Sean was driving the car home and the last thing we wanted to do was delay his trip. The car ran an amazing 10.92@133 on it’s very first outing. With that trap speed, the car has low 10s in it with the right suspension and track setup. Low 10s on 10 psi is incredible.

 

Here is a You Tube Video

The next day Sean showed up to pick up the car. Him and a friend hopped in and drove it over 1,100 miles non-stop from South Florida to Maryland during one of the worst heat waves anyone has seen in a long time. Thanks to Sean for being part of the Alpha program and giving the car one of it’s most grueling tests on the way home, it passed with flying colors!

Alpha 1 Twin Turbo 5.0 Hits the Dyno! http://twinturbo50.com/alpha-1-twin-turbo-5-0-hits-the-dyno/ http://twinturbo50.com/alpha-1-twin-turbo-5-0-hits-the-dyno/#comments Wed, 20 Jun 2012 18:13:41 +0000 kenbjonnes http://twinturbo50.com/?p=254 IMG_20120621_165312 The Twin Turbo 5.0 Alpha 1 test car has been completed and has hit the dyno. This is a stock Coyote 5.0 with billet oil pump gears. The Turbo system is our base system with an upgraded intercooler tank and injectors. We are really excited to have 2 of these cars built already. Sean’s car has come out just as perfectly as the first one as you can see from the picture.

 

 

 

 

 

alpha1 We first tuned the car on 6 psi and 8psi with pump gas. This will be the standard configuration for most people running the system as a daily driver and the numbers that are most important to us.  The numbers we laid down were exactly what we were expecting based on the prototype car. It laid down an impressive 579 at the rear wheels on only 6 psi through the full exhaust and 649 at the wheels on 8 psi.

 

alpha1race_0 We then put in some VP MS109 Unleaded Race Fuel and turned the boost up to psi. The car laid down an impressive 719 at the rear wheels. This is the most we really feel comfortable putting through a stock 5.0 engine, so we stopped there. Check back soon for updates from the track. Dyno numbers are great but we build fast cars so we can go fast!

 

Here is a video of it on the dyno

Twin Turbo Alpha 1 Car Being Built http://twinturbo50.com/twin-turbo-alpha-1-car-being-built/ http://twinturbo50.com/twin-turbo-alpha-1-car-being-built/#comments Mon, 23 Apr 2012 17:50:27 +0000 kenbjonnes http://twinturbo50.com/?p=246 While we work to finalize the Twin Turbo System for the 2011+ Mustang 5.0 platform, it’s very important for us to do as much testing as possible. To help with this, we are building a couple of pre-production test cars. Obviously our prototype car has performed flawlessly at both the drag strip and the Texas Mile. But we wanted to put a car in the hands of someone outside the project for more long term testing.  2012-03-29_22-23-32_508

We had many people interested in getting an early system and we were able to work out something with Sean S of MD to be the first TT5.0 Alpha car. All TT5.0 systems will be serialzed so that makes Sean TT5.0 System number 0001A. Sean’s car is a manual with a stock engine and McLeod Clutch. He will be getting the standard kit with the upgraded intercooler tank in the trunk and ID 72 lb injectors.

Here are some pictures of Sean’s car during the build process

TT50 Project Recap and Turbo System Pre-Order Information http://twinturbo50.com/233/ http://twinturbo50.com/233/#comments Thu, 12 Apr 2012 12:23:35 +0000 kenbjonnes http://twinturbo50.com/?p=233 When we started this project less than one year ago, we had some very specific goals for the performance of this Turbo System. We wanted to design a system that would scale from a stock vehicle to a highly modified vehicle with very little changes. The results on the stock engine were very promising (10.23@139) and we will continue to develop the stock engine program on the next few cars we do. After installing the L&M Longblock, we set the new goals of a low 9 second/150MPH 1/4 pass and 200+ in the Texas Mile.

After getting the new engine installed on March 1st, we headed to the NMRA Spring Nationals in Bradenton Florida to take a shot at our first goal. By the end of the weekend we were able to get a 9.42@150.9 on 21 psi. [YouTube] without much effort. Keep in mind that the Twin Turbo 5.0 Prototype car was built to be an all around performer and not a drag specific car, and that time gets even more impressive.

Then it was time to head to the Texas Mile where our next goal was 200+ MPH. We also wanted to add another level of difficulty by not doing any aerodynamic modifications or any type of boost control. Most cars that are able to achieve 200+ use tape and other aerodynamic tricks to help get to those speeds. After some licensing passes we were floored when the TT5.0 went 206.2 MPH [YouTube] on our very first attempt at 200 MPH.

Now that we have achieved our initial performance goals in the same month we fired the car up, we have moved onto the Alpha stage of our program. During the Alpha stage, we will build 3 more TT5.0s.  A manual transmission 5.0, a Boss 302 and a stock automatic 5.0.  These cars will be used to finalize the production kit and to do more testing. It’s very important for us that the kit is as close to 100% perfect before we start shipping, and that is why we are testing so extensively for performance.  We are also building multiple cars to test reliability,  fit and finish .

Once the Alpha Program is done, we will go into production. After the production parts are done, we will enter the Beta phase of the project. We will do another 3 cars with the full production kit to once again test fitment, finish, reliability and performance. Once these cars prove out, we will start shipping kits. We expect this to happen before the end of 2012. We are now accepting $1,000 deposits to hold your place in line.

206.2 MPH at the Texas Mile – World’s Fastest 5.0 Coyote Mustang GT http://twinturbo50.com/206-2-mph-at-the-texas-mile-worlds-fastest-5-0-coyote/ http://twinturbo50.com/206-2-mph-at-the-texas-mile-worlds-fastest-5-0-coyote/#comments Tue, 27 Mar 2012 12:49:06 +0000 kenbjonnes http://twinturbo50.com/?p=218 It has been quite a March for the Twin Turbo 5.0. First we went to Bradenton and ran a stellar 9.42@150 and then headed to the Texas Mile this last weekend. We decided not to use any tape or any special launch methods including boost control to see if we could break the 200 MPH barrier just by going to the line and rolling into it.  I’ll have a full recap of the weekend later but wanted to get the video posted. We were all shocked when the car ran 206.2 MPH with only 17 psi. That makes us the fastest 5.0 Coyote in the Mile and one of the fastest Mustangs in the Mile ever.

    Check back later when I update this post with a full recap.

TT50 Xtreme goes 9.42@150 in first weekend of testing http://twinturbo50.com/tt50-xtreme-goes-9-42150-in-first-weekend-of-testing/ http://twinturbo50.com/tt50-xtreme-goes-9-42150-in-first-weekend-of-testing/#comments Mon, 05 Mar 2012 13:15:40 +0000 kenbjonnes http://twinturbo50.com/?p=195 bradentonlaunchJust got back from the NMRA Bradenton event this weekend, and things could not have gone better. I’d like to give a huge thanks to Jake Long and Jon Lund-two of the best guys to partner with on a project like this. I’d also like to give a special thanks to Michael at L&M Engines for an incredible engine. He made the trip down to Bradenton to hang out and see how the car did.  I’d also like to thank Evolution Performance for having us in their midway spot. They had some great results this weekend as well.

942slipIt took us a few passes to figure out how to get a decent 60 ft. Keep in mind this is not intended to be a drag car, so the converter isn’t optimal for spool at the line.  It’s built for strength. But by the end of the weekend, we able to get a 1.61 60 ft. out of the car and it paid off big time. On only 21 psi, the car ran a blistering 9.42@150. The car still has a bone stock transmission and stock rear end. Hats off to Ford for building such great factory parts. Next up for us is the Texas Mile at the end of this month, so be sure to stay tuned!

New TwinTurbo50 Xtreme Build Complete! http://twinturbo50.com/new-twinturbo50-xtreme-build-complete/ http://twinturbo50.com/new-twinturbo50-xtreme-build-complete/#comments Thu, 01 Mar 2012 13:04:03 +0000 kenbjonnes http://twinturbo50.com/?p=187 The new L&M Engines is in and running! The new setup features an all new shortblock with billet rods and L&M pistons at 11:1 compression. It also has Boss heads, custom L&M camshafts that retain variable cam timing and a Boss intake. Then new engine fired up on the first try and we didn’t have a single issue. But when working with someone like Michael at L&M Engines, you can expect that. He is one of the top guys to be working with on this project and we consider ourselves lucky to have him involved.

Here is a startup video:

Click here to view the video on YouTube.

We were on a bit of a time crunch to make the NMRA Bradenton race so we through it on the dyno with a basic tune just to make sure everything was ok. Without much experimentation on cam timing, or any part of the tune really, it laid down an impressive 955 RWHP and 867 RWTQ on a low 20 psi. The car is also now running on E85.

 

Here is the dyno graph

955

 

 

We will be at Bradenton on March 2-4 to do some testing.

Production System Development Continues… http://twinturbo50.com/production-system-development-continues/ http://twinturbo50.com/production-system-development-continues/#comments Fri, 17 Feb 2012 02:49:37 +0000 kenbjonnes http://twinturbo50.com/?p=173 imag0041 While the development car is getting all the upgrades and new engine, I wanted to switch gears for a moment and show off some of what is going into the development of the production kit.   We are not only trying to bring the best kit to market, but we are also trying to do it at the best price possible. The Y pipe that connects the two turbos and also has the BOV mounted to it, works flawlessly. But as you can see in the picture, there is a lot of welding involved. This is the prototype and it probably could be simplified to be a little easier to fabricate. Even then it would be a time consuming piece to make and the bigger chance you have for mistakes, cracks, or pipes that don’t all come out the same. So we decided to take a different route and get this piece cast. It is a sizeable investment up front, but it will keep the cost of the kit down and every pipe will be exactly the same.

For this project we are working with Garen Phillips of DiamondP.  They have been great to work with and are handling everything from the final design, prototyping and final castings.

Garen was able to get the pipe drawn up based off some pictures and measurements we took. We shipped him the pipe for a final check before he printed out the prototype on his 3D printer.

revise-1 2r

And here are some renderings:

blackcoat castm2

The part was then printed on a 3D printer in 2 sections. This is used to check for fitment and decide on any final changes. After the prototype is approved, we can move on to making the molds. Here are some pictures of the printing process.

The pipe arrived today. The car being reassembled with the new engine and fuel system, so we will be testing fitting it later. But comparing it to the stock pipe, it looks perfect.

I should have another update very soon on the engine install and fuel system modifications we are doing.

If you are interested in the production kit, please go to our Contact Us Page and sign up for our email mailing list. We are also using this as a waiting list when the kit becomes available.
