RE: [DML] Re: How many Island Turbos



I have a car with Island Twin Turbo though I took them off to make exhaust
manifolds. There is another here in the Dallas area with an Island set up on
it and a man that owns a shop that installed he said at least 10 of them
when Turbo Manufacturing was selling the kits. 
I also bought another kit new in the box about 5 years ago.

Bob,

I have a D that had Island Turbo's. It also had two scuba sized Nitrus 
bottles in the front boot and a stripped ring gear on the Differential. 
I bought it ~20 years ago and haven't done anything with it other than 
tearing it down for rebuild. Don't know the vin off hand. I do have the 
plumbing but don't think highly of it. The log exhaust manifolds are a 
disgrace but I have ported them to the point (probably double the flow 
potential) where they might be usable.  The car is located in Cd'A, Idaho.
