Been following you on IG, looking forward to sound clips.


I'm going to ask a question that I 99% probably know the answer to, but this really is my ideal vision for this car, so it's worth asking. Is there any way to change to single turbo and still pass OBD emissions? As in integrating both MAF sensors, all O2 sensors, stock cats, and tune for emissions compliance? Illinois doesn't have smog, but the OBD emissions test is coming up next year for my car, and the only thing stopping me from seriously considering this is the test. Also, the car would be unsellable if there was no way to pass after installing this. But I've never wanted to install a modification more than this.

I don't have the answer to your question, and I don't think you are correct in terms of whether it's sellable or not, IMO. This is what I wanted done, and I got it done. Zero regret

It would be "unsellable" in Illinois because I wouldn't be able to renew registration if emissions doesn't pass, and the next buyer would have the same problem. That's the problem.

There are ways...get a PO box at a UPS location in a zip thats exempt and register the vehicle to that box. Being that UPS doesnt use PO XXX on the address it looks like a legit address. They use # so it looks like an apartment. Thats how I would register my vehicles. I lived in Franklin Park, Elk Grove, and Streamwood but had my PO box in woodstock. Drove out there once a month to check for mail and it ran me like $8.00 a month. Worth it.

Thank you!

Apologies OP, didn't mean to derail so quickly. I'll bow out here to avoid clutter, but I'm very much looking forward to updates

Just wish the turbo didn't have to be so buried. Wanna see an s55 with a giant single next to the block like the OG JDM 6s (2jz / RB26).

You can do a top mount when kits are released. Big drawback is you need all new coolers, lots more modifications, and it's already designed to place the turbo where the stock ones are for bottom mount for better cooling
