RSI Twin Turbo/ Engine Build Install (In Progress)

Hey Guys,

I just dropped my car off today at RSI (Feb 24) for their new production twin turbo system and built motor. This system is essentially the Gen 2 version of the RSI shippable turbo kit.

My car is a 2002 GTS that made around 450hp/500tq with filters/tubes, SCT, Belanger Headers, and custom exhaust.

Here is what I am having installed:

Engine:

Blueprint Block to RSI Clearances
RSI Spec Crankshaft Modification
CP Pistons / Pins / Rings
RSI Spec H-Beam Rods
Clevite 77 "H" Bearings - Rod / Main
Viper Short Block Assembly
ARP 247-4201 1.00 EACH ARP Head Stud Kit for Dodge
RSI Custom Main Stud Kit for Dodge Viper – ARP 2000 Material
Mopar Gasket Kit for Dodge Viper Gen 2
Includes: Fluids and Shop Supplies

Turbo System
Precision 6766 CEA – Journal Bearing (Upgraded)
RSI Custom Up Pipes
RSI 3” Exhaust w/ polished tips
RSI Turbo to Intercooler Pipe
RSI Custom Viper Intercooler
RSI Intake Pipes
RSI Dump tubes
Tial Q Blow off Valves
Precision Wastegates
Oil line kit with fittings and Scavenge pump
All Necessary Black Silicone Couplers and T-Bolt Clamps
Turbo Mount K&N Filters
All Pipes come standard with Black Ceramic
(Hotside) and Black Powercoat (Cool Side)
RSI EB1000G3 1.00 EACH RSI Stage 3 Fuel System and Tuning
- RSI Billet Triple Pump Hanger
- Twin Walbro 255s

Accessories:

- RSI or Woodhouse - Transmission and Engine Mounts
- Raptor Shift Light
- MGW Short Shifter

Drive Train
OS Giken Super Lock LSD
Centerforce Clutch (Already Installed)
Spec Aluminum Flywheel (Already Installed)

Recently, it seems that some RSI customers have had issues regarding their cars being in the shop for an extended period of time. An additional complaint is that RSI has had poor communication with its customers. My personal experience is that [email protected] has been very helpful over the past month. He has assisted me in choosing the right parts for my build, while still staying on a budget. Will usually responds to text messages within 20 minutes of me sending them and will call me back if I leave a message that day. In order to remedy the build time issue, I am having my block built from a core (provided by RSI) in order to cut down on amount of time my car is at RSI. The deposit on the block was made approximately 3 weeks ago (Feb 6.)

The purpose of this thread is to:
1) Provide build pics and updates
2) Provide a time line of how long my car has been in the shop
3) Provide performance results of the finished product
4) Provide any issues or delays in my build (service or car related)
I will update this thread as I receive pictures and status updates.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Running Time Line:

- Feb 6: Block deposit made and core block started
- Feb 24: Car delivered to RSI (Dropped off 1 week early to fit my schedule)

I will post pics as soon as I get them.


*Thanks to Alkybanshee, Mr. Hollywood, and Junkie for helping me put my build together.

My only advice, and some may disagree, dump the aluminum flywheel for this build.

X2.

Alu flywheels are too light for TT apps imo. I'm sure you'll love the new power of the car just ease into it so as not to scare yourself and put it up for sale 2 months after having it...

The pressure plate is probably every bit of 20 lbs... and since it's bolted directly to the flywheel, there's probably close to 35# worth of "flywheel" in reality, even with the aluminum part. I wouldn't worry about it as much as that brand clutch holding up.

I already had the clutch and flywheel installed (my slave cylinder went out.) I figured i would upgrade later when it wears out. I put my money into the LSD instead of replacing a clutch/flywheel with 700 miles in it.

That is one hell of a build. I am sure the finished result will be well worth it. Keep us all updated!

I am jealous! One day God damn it... One day.
