      Just another 69 Camaro, DSE LS427 twin turbo

      Started working on my 69 Camaro again, Its been about 2 years.
      RHS 427, TR6060
      DSE front sub frame
      DSE quadra link
      DSE 12 bolt, narrowed.
      Got the motor and trans mocked in there this weekend. Only took 3 times in and out.


      I am still on the fence with LME dual throttle body, dual injectors with mirror 88mm twin turbo or Whipple Supercharger......

      1969 Camaro DSE twin Turbo

      Auto Rad Radiator installed. Transmission tunnel is cut out for TR6060, Bowler trans tunnel kit ready to get welded in.
      Inner fender and front sheet metal this week.

      Still not 100%, should I go Whipple super charger or Nelson twin turbo?
      I bought both for this car.

      That thing is going to a handful for sure! The Nelson set up is super nice and clean. The mirror image turbos keep everything symmetrical and his billet intake is very stealth looking with the integrated fuel rails and hidden injectors.

      Have anymore pics of the Autorad setup?

      So got the turbos mounted and down pipes made.
      Also got the DSE exhaust trunk cut outs installed.
      DSE gas door installed.
      Baer brakes installed.
      I have to install the R/S grill to finish the rest of turbo piping.

      Brakes, Turbos done.

      Starting on the exhaust, turbos all done, front and rear brakes installed.
      New twin disc clutch and T56 Magnum installed. I like the Holley T56 transmission cross member. Plenty of room for 3" exhaust. Fit great with DSE front clip.
      Started wiring in Holley Dominator and also added thier traction control module.
      Ricks tank is power coated and installed. Should be a running in a couple weeks.

      I did the same thing, but there didn't seem to be many options for matching tires. Ended up going with Michelin Pilot SP2s to make it work.

      Awesome! Looking real good!

      I see you're using the Holley trans cross member on the DSE subframe. What motor mounts are you using and did you have any issues using it?

      Holley cross member worked out great with DSE frame and Magnum T56.
      Engine mounts I bought DSE LS kit but I moved the engine back another 1.5 to make room for turbo piping.

      DSE makes a mount kit to move the engine back 1.5 inches, which is what I have. Are you saying you moved the engine back another 1.5 inches, for a total of 3 inches? That would be pretty far back and would require some severe firewall mods based on what I see now with my 1.5 setback.

      Nice car, looks well thought out. How are you controlling the dual throttle bodies? Are they DBW or cable? I'm considering a very similar setup for my project, and one of the end pieces involved a turbocharged LS-based 427 with twin throttle bodies using this intake. Hadn't figured a way to run a pair of DBW throttles this way. Mine will be a little more complicated because I have to run an automatic, and will be running at least a 6 speed auto, so I have to run the factory computer. And, have you had it running on the road yet? How's the power and response, and how quickly does it build RPM?
