      I have all the parts to start a 318 twin turbo build once these bad boys show up. May want to follow me if you have an inherent urge to bend some rods such as myself ;)

        Start that 3-Grenade-Teen build thread already brother!

        That's a smoking deal and if they clear in an Abody we'll see a bunch more Mopar guys going turbo.

        I would dump the Downpipes right out the fenders, run E85 (or methanol spray) to skip the whole intercooler and you would have practically no fab, cutting or welding to do. Bolt-on and go.

          I forgot we already named the project. Lol. It just snowed on us today...so I need a little bit of time!! I will have to hold them up In my dart and see how they fit in an A body. Looking at this B body...i have serious suspicion that the factory alternator location is a no go. It' s a factory a.c. car too so I'm sure all that needs to go. Radiator may even need to go in front of the core support.

          They will probably work good in a truck. An A body is fairly tight but I guess we will see
          I am sure you will pop a head gasket before you bend a rod…asked me how I know. I’m sure Subcom know also.

            Meziere water pump, low mount alternator and I bet they clear the rad support. I didn't know these existed, I was going with magnum logs out the front. May have to rethink it. Run 2 2.2 turbos off those?

            They just surfaced in the last 2 months or so. I bought the little t3 t4 hybrids. Should bolt right on.

            They were 295..then like 450...i just noticed the drop last night.


            Yes I'm kidding about the rods. I'm sure gaskets will be first. The trans clutches worry me even before head gaskets. But that' what a test mule is for.

            As far as fitment. I'm not overly concerned with relocating an alternator. Time will tell!

            maybe some 45's and some 90's with ceramic boots? Im not quite sure what these improve on now that Im looking at them...All I can see is way more surface area for heat loss.

            I've even thought about buying some of those "universal" SBC turbo headers and modding them to fit SBM. I actually did that on my old 340/ Landcruiser. Chev port spacing is nearly exactly the same........just cut off the flanges and weld to a set of Mopars. IN FACT the two center bolts of the Chev flange line right up!!!

              Mine showed up in really nice shape. I'm impressed. The flanges are ridiculously thick. Gonna have to slot cyl #2 mounting bolt...or wail on the tube. Zero percent chance it's going in as is.

              Modifying a part, is easier than building from scratch.

              Thanks to you, now I have two boosted motors to build.
              I have a 174 B&M super charger for another project.
              Talk to your buddies a blueprint, I bet they could sell some low compression 408 with good forged pistons.

                I took mine out of the box the other day, quality looks decent on them for the price.
                I will lay them on top of the exhaust manifolds on my A and E bodies, and take a photo for clearance, when I get a chance.
                Eyeballing the passenger side looks real tight.

                  I agree, i think my front #2 primary bolts are getting a slot. the flanges are monster thick...so i think a slot would be fine if needed.

                  I think the passenger side will fit a E body with no issues.
                  A body, looks super tight.

                  the only info i could get out of them was "these were built using a 318 dart" so hopefully they will fit A's. I'm personally using on a B-body. I could fit another smallblock beside the one thats in it :p

                      Anybody have measurements on these headers? Width especially.

                      Eyeballing the pics, I'm pretty sure they would be a drop in on the driver's side, even in an Early A. Passenger side is the big mystery.

                      I can say just by looking at the set I have, passenger side will be tight, if it fits at all.
