just heard from the previous owner that they are GT35rs as he upgraded to them right at the end so I think they are 62mm or so.

its super strong right now at 750 and does not fall off at all at high rpms so cant wait to get my fuel hat from Skip .

He has the twins in roughly the same place as you guys. Main difference is
John's guy made headers that come forward instead of going to the rear of the jeep.
I saw it at the hemishop. John told me his guy said he would never do it again.

After having spent a few bucks for my build, It's a tough call for me. When it runs good...OH YEAH !!!!! because there's nothing like it. The feeling of a 9-sec pass in a jeep is very special.

BUT.... As has been said time and again, be ready to deal with the headaches. At that power level When things go bad they do so in grand fashion. Putting all the parts in is only the beginning, then you have to find a way for them to play well together

Could have sworn I was told you couldn't make a forward facing header for these, lol.

As Chris stated, I think you'll be fine with those. Turns out, many months after I purchased mine the previous owner found the receipt and mine are also GT35Rs

jim, get her to the track!!! There was alot of time spent on this kit, like you guys already know. The place i had do the kit is a reputable shop by me. If they knew what it was going to take to make the headers, im sure the final bill would have look muchhhhh larger. The turn around time was nothing like ttc, due to this. I can not nor do i want to even know how many hours was spent on this kit. Id propably feel bad.

I will get her to the track John and by the way she has never seen rain my friend and wont either. Still no fender well liners in the front cause I dont need them, lol. Nice to have the turbos exposed anyways .

I plan to work towards my 9 sec slip but thats about it. I dont plan to beat the hell out of her as thats not how I roll. I get my slip to make my point and address "serious" challenges as they come about . Hopefully nothing will give for awhile. In the future I plan to go with a PWR short block and more stout cam.

But for now she's an amazing jeep and I feel very lucky to own it. Im glad it all worked out with John . She is represented well!
