Default Huron Twin Turbo build

This is the Gen 1 kit. I bought it when they first debut, I've been randomly installing over the past year-ish between other projects.

My car is purposed for street activities, so just sharing install pics to whoever may venture into this.

My car didn't have a motor in it, so I've had the luxury of doing the clearancing on an engine stand.

I update my FB more current, if you want to keep track there
https://www.facebook.com/soflaz06/

Engine Setup is a LS2 shortblock, hand ported 243s, Twin 62s on E85.





There's some clearancing that needs to be done, how much depends on your turbo choice.

passenger side




on the driver side, the clearance on the driver side wastegate tube was tight. was told I can massage it, but I have a welder and opted to adjust accordingly









I attempted to AN fitting the drain, but failed, I couldn't accomplish the drain angle I felt comfortable with the fittings length





attached your oil lines to the turbo first, or else you wont be able to them after the turbo is mounted



you have to make clearance on the motor mount to clear the compressor housing, also on the mount bracket itself, so you have room to slide the cold side pipe on, and by the oil filter housing, small clearance for the feed fitting.











new home




Since i'm switching from GenIII to GenIV, I had couple wiring to attend to, and I hate wiring

During this process, decided to get some meat under the car also.







Test fitting














Drivetrain being out, I switch my RST to RXT, just incase, and replace my torque tube couplers, surprisingly they looked great with 110k miles on them. but that's a hit or miss thing



since my drivetrain was out, I had a weird problem to where I couldn't get a grip to reattach my slave to the master, since the wastegate tube in now in the way



after 3 days of fighting with it, I ordered a new master and ran custom AN lines, allows me to move them away from heat also










drivetrain in

Now to move the wiring around, both for clearance and to away from heat as much as possible

from factory, the charging system uses the starter as a bridge. There's a battery cable from battery to starter, then the the charging wire from the starter to the alternator, there's also a smaller wire that goes from the starter to the connector of the alternator.

I opened up the harness, and moves both those wires, and routed them infront of the motor, The battery to starter wire also moved to the front, then back to the starter.

general idea

wires moved, starter and turbine wrapped



So I couldn't put the motor in with the passenger tube attached, I was concerned how much of a pain it'll be. trimming this tab would help alot with getting the vband clamp on if you're ever in this situation.






making sure the electrical works, I dont want to go back there again

you're right, the plan is hopefully to not have to touch it again for awhile, this is my last "garage" build, if I have to work on it in the future, i'm just dropping the drivetrain out the bottom.

Which fenders did you end up going with and hows the initial fitment? Iím looking into doing the same.

I went with carbon creationz, fitment is good, I think it comes down to the installer, there's extra material to trim to dial in your fitment with the body lines. with oem being 10, i'll rate them a 7/10

Tackling the cold side, I ended up not making enough clearance on the motor mount, the "silicone style" lower cold side piping is thicker and the coupler I test fitted with, I wasn't interested in figuring how to remove it an clear it some more, luckily I managed to be able to get up there with my cutoff wheel
